…on the use-case for social-software:

  • oscarberg: what’s your best use case(s) for using social software in a business context? #E20 #socialsoftware
  • colinpwheeler: Collaboration has to be one of the most useful use cases for social software in business #E20 #socialsoftware
  • oscarberg: collaboration as in coordinating the activities of a team? I see rapid formation of ad hoc “collaborations” as one use case
  • colinpwheeler: From my point of view, just the basic process of how to collaborate on anything. Many useful systems can be built from that.

  • tetradian: Why Business Capabilities are not in the Zachman Framework <<because Z’s taxonomy is flawed
  • jdevoo: Why Business Capabilities are not in the Zachman Framework | but misses intra-row cross-tables
  • miket0181: @tetradian Zachman vs business capability is a bit like “why doesn’t my 8-track have I-pod docking station?”

Gartner put out a ‘new’ definition for enterprise architecture, which didn’t go down very well:

  • basvg: interesting post on emergent architecture according to google. How new is this? It seems to borrow from e.g. SqEME: http://bit.ly/u7zXo

…followed by a few comments on other responses to Gartner:

  • bergmart: Enterprise Architects read this blog: http://twurl.nl/eqj8s7 Mike Rollings comments on Gartner! Wow!
  • CyberSal: has Gartner ‘flipped’ from one extreme to the other? EA reality is more nuanced IMHO -eg still a place for ‘big picture’ view
  • tetradian: RT @bergmart: EAs read this: http://twurl.nl/eqj8s7 Wow! <??? (one consultancy slags another, still misses the point…)
