The Art and Science of Business Architectures
This presentation outlines fundamental principles to address in the application of business and enterprise architectures. The author deems this necessary as practical experience shows that business typically questions the value contributed by Enterprise Architecture departments over time. Whether this is warranted or merely a perception requires a fundamental analysis of the use and application of Enterprise Architectures to achieve business benefit. This presentation is intended to focus on understanding the patterns of an architecture, conceptual models for architecture development, as well as a number of fundamental modelling principles used in creating the architecture.
