Praise for Enterprise Architecture Planning

"... the book has given me a wealth of good, fresh ideas about every facet of the architecture process ... makes a substantive contribution to the body of IS planning knowledge."
John A. Zachman Zachman, Information Systems

Enterprise Architecture Planning is more advanced than traditional system planning approaches because you:

  • define a stable business model independent of organizational boundaries, systems, and procedures,
  • define data before application, and
  • let data determine the sequence for implementing applications systems.

Here the authors give you a common–sense approach to Enterprise Architecture Planning. You′ll find dozens of examples of architectures, procedures, checklists, and useful guidelines to support these techniques. This is the best guide available to help you ensure a cost–effective, long–term solution.
