Open Group and whole-of-enterprise architecture
Was intending to miss the next TOGAF conference – it’s in February, in San Diego, which means dealing with all the joys of US ‘Homeland Security’ as well as a seriously expensive travel-bill. But it looks like I’d better go, ‘cos not only is it the formal launch for TOGAF 9 – which I do need to know about – but it seems they’ve finally, finally ‘got it’: the conference agenda specifically includes a stream on “Extending EA to the Enterprise”:
Extending EA to the Enterprise: Re-thinking Architecture, Quest to Apply Architecture Holistically
The subtitle is a direct quote from Len Fehskens’ presentation at TOGAF Munich, so I guess he’ll be presenting there. 🙂
I’ve put in a bid to do a presentation there, which should defray the expenses a bit – they offer a lower conference fee for speakers. But if not, well, I have possible alternatives to cut the cost. And Silos should at last be be in print by then. As usual, Watch This Space?
