While I’m still under a gag order for the SOA Executive Summits I facilitated at the end of February, I can share some activity from one of the practitioner working groups. The Enterprise Architecture of the Future Working Group (Enterprise Architecture 2010) has developed a survey on the current state of enterprise architecture organizations, architects and practices. The purpose is to gather information as a baseline for the evolution of enterprise architecture organizations, architects, and practices, in today’s business-driven, service-oriented world.
Since we all know that the practice of enterprise architecture ranges from ivory tower dictates to architecture portfolio delivery, the group thought a survey would be a good place to start. The survey is being taken by consortium members, and through this blog posting, offered to the enterprise architecture public.
Assuming the sample size is relevant, we will share the results back out to the public. I’ll post on the results when they are available.
If you have 10-15 minutes, please take the survey. A group of practitioners with enterprise architect titles developed it. For more information on the SOA Consortium, check out the website, related press and posts, or shoot me an email: brenda at soa-consortium dot org.
