This morning, I noticed that the reactions to Jeff Schneider’s EA is a joke post continue to emerge, the latest from Richard Veryard. Richard does a nice job tracking the conversation and then adds some planetary perspective.
In the first of my own two-cent response to Jeff’s, I said, “If you want an actionable enterprise architecture, you must go beyond artifacts“. Seeing my words in Richard’s post, combined with a completely unrelated discussion with Hub Vandervoort on standards organizations, reference implementations, and open source communities, got me wondering, what are most enterprise architecture group’s responsible for delivering?
So, if you will, please take a second to answer the following quick poll: What does your enterprise architecture group deliver? Multiple answers are allowed. Feed subscribers, the poll direct link is here. Thanks.
Technology Architecture says
Take a Brief Enterprise Architecture Poll
I’m amplifying Brenda Michelson’s quick poll that asks What does your enterprise architecture group deliver? It will be very interesting to see the results, so please go over and add to the data.
Two things. First, did you see: http://blogs.msdn.com/mikewalker/archive/2008/07/07/the-enterprise-architecture-toolkit.aspx
Second, how about measuring internal communities vs external communities and which provides more value?
