'Silos' is published – at last!
Celebrate with me, perhaps? Bridging the Silos: enterprise architecture for IT-architects has at last gone off to press – hooray! 🙂 Somewhat dependent on production-schedules at Lightning Source, but print versions should be available before the end of the month; at a guess, the e-book version should be available from IT Governance before Christmas, but I’ll have to check.
Unlike most of my books, this one’s been a real marathon: some seventeen months and (according to the Word-file statistics) almost 1700 hours of edit-time and more than 130 saved-versions. Dunno why it’s been so hard, but it has. Oh well.
The ‘sample version‘ is up on the Tetradian Books website, of course. But as a ‘thank you’ to all of you who’ve contributed comments and suchlike, I’ll place a full version of the e-book on a private server until the New Year – Tom’s ‘thank you’ Christmas present to everyone! Please email me if you’d like a copy, and I’ll send you the link. (Easiest way is probably to add a comment to this post – if you include your email address in the form but not the body, it doesn’t appear on the web.)
Now, for my next book… 🙂
