A week in Tweets: 5-11 September 2010

There is only one election, so even if in 99 out of 100 hypothetical universes [the party] would win, it is the results in our universe that matter.” – key distinction between Complex (emergent from all-possible-universes) versus Chaotic (it is the results in this universe that matter)

A discussion on enterprise-architecture and ‘shadow-IT’ that developed out of an HBR article:

  • chrisdpotts: RT @billpoly: HBR article shows how IT needs to change http://bit.ly/btwaLm |me: time for 3rd Gen #CIO <if we’re not darn careful, this will be the #entarch / #itarch nightmare of 1990s shadow-IT all over again…
  • chrisdpotts: @tetradian “Shadow IT” is so last year!
  • chrisdpotts: @thoughttrans It’s true there are IT depts that are separate legal entities, but 100% owned by the business they are part of. // In 3rd Gen corp strategy for IT, “IT” mean the exploitation of IT by business and its customers. Delivery of IT was Gen 2.
  • thoughttrans: @chrisdpotts @tetradian does biz really trust IT?
  • chrisdpotts: @thoughttrans Do you mean the Information Technologies or IT people (and if the latter, which ones)?
  • thoughttrans: @chrisdpotts within an industry yes. I see other industries (banking, oil, retail) using cloud appl and srvs and not having IT depts no need //  I see outsourcing not to build appl but to use appls owned by diff companies. // example: why hire security experts…leave that to the company that owns the sales software.
  • chrisdpotts: @thoughttrans First principle of sourcing: you can’t outsource your accountabilities and core competencies, but you can always try….
  • tetradian: @thoughttrans: “leave [security] to the company that owns the sales software” – yikes! – NO! – security is *everyone’s* responsibility… // @thoughttrans …you can perhaps outsource some technical aspects of security, but never security itself – that’s *your* security at risk!
  • thoughttrans: @chrisdpotts @tetradian why #entarch and #bizarch is so important now…think beyond the internal organization
  • thoughttrans: @chrisdpotts why cant your responsibility be to use a service? why does a realestate company need to develop listing software? //  oops meant accountabilities instead of responsibilities. You are accountable to have correct information…where stored/managed
  • tetradian: @thoughttrans “why does a realestate company need to develop listing software?” – ans: if the company’s #entarch says it needs it… // that’s what #entarch etc is for: help decide whether your need is better fit for SaaS (if it even exists) or for in-house etc // if you only use others’ services in the ways that they specify, your #bizarch is probably left with nothing unique to sell etc
  • thoughttrans: @tetradian yes, security is everyone’s responsibility … but the company that holds the information will be mechanically responsible // … yes…just saw 2nd note on the technical aspects which is what I was talking about.
  • thoughttrans: @tetradian #entarch doesn’t say that the company must build it…just use it. (unless your company is the one to develop it)
  • tetradian: @thoughttrans beware of cloud etc sales-pitch – often omits *huge* #entarch dangers of outsourcing, good for vendor, poss. lethal for orgs
  • thoughttrans: @tetradian which is why entarch and bizarch is a priority now … now, if orgs would realize this LOL
  • thoughttrans: @tetradian not necessarily … its not an all or nothing deal … your uniqueness may be in the way you interact with cust not the data of c
  • thoughttrans: @tetradian Agreed completely. Not condoning all of it. I do see this as a trend for biz’s. my job is to illustrates the risks
  • tetradian: @thoughttrans  use of SaaS, cloud etc may simplify #itarch but requires *more* attention to #entarch #bizarch security etc, not less
  • thoughttrans: @tetradian absolutely! thats why they need ppl like #entarch #bizarch … its NOT just #itarch at all!
  • thoughttrans: @tetradian and why #entarch is not #IT focused VBG (thought you would love that tweet)

Another conversation, this time on ‘left-brained’ versus ‘right-brained’ thinking in enterprise-architecture:

  • joemckendrick: Enterprise architecture needs more art along with the science http://zd.net/9Re8b1 #entarch #bizarch #itarch
  • tetradian: (via @joemckendrick) Chris Lockhart (@chrisonea): Is Enterprise Architecture Left or Right Brained? http://bit.ly/bUx9tU #entarch
  • taotwit: @tetradian seems to be quite an EA L/R brain theme developing today! Did you see my comment here? http://zd.net/9Re8b1 #entarch
  • Cybersal: @tetradian @taotwit Try this L/R brain/ visual/auditory test: http://bit.ly/aOM8aX #entarch
  • Cybersal: @tetradian @taotwit In that test I come out as visual and left-brained, apparently that’s an unusual combination……
  • taotwit: Given the L&R-Brain discussion following TEDx #entarch … EA should be focused on business behaviour before te -> http://bit.ly/yuKbQ
  • kdierc: @Cybersal @tetradian @taotwit 50-50 here and slightly more visual than auditory.. am i in perfect balance? 🙂 #yinyang
  • taotwit: @Cybersal Well,well – I just came out  as A:50% V:50% L:57% and R:42%  (Iwhat happened to the  lost 1% – maybe that’s  loss to beer % )
  • taotwit: @kdierc  me too – is it rigged 😀
  • tetradian: @taotwit @Cybersal @kdierc L/R-brain is overworked metaphor – key point (and need) in #entarch/design is to bridge and balance between them
  • taotwit: @tetradian  @Cybersal @kdierc  yes – the point Roger Martin makes about balancing ‘Validity’ with ‘Reliability’  #entarch
  • Cybersal: @taotwit I don’t think Martin’s validity/reliability distinction is the same as L/R brain thinking.
  • taotwit: @Cybersal Interesting, I expressed that connection here  http://bit.ly/yuKbQ –  I’d like to know why you see differently.
  • Cybersal: @tetradian Architects need to understand exec’s individual communication/thinking preferences when communicating with them.
  • Cybersal: @taotwit  I’m a counter-example (Y and left-brained). He doesn’t use left/right brain metaphor explicitly in his book. I see yr point tho.
  • taotwit: @Cybersal  Truth is we are neither all one dimension and one dimension doesn’t fit all situations – but practicing opposites helps
  • Cybersal: @taotwit Completely agree – it’s definitely not about labelling people but being aware of preferences (own and others) and using whole-brain
  • richardveryard: @tetradian Left/Right metaphor not only overworked but leads to false snobbery. “We right-brainers are so much more, you know, holistic.”
  • oscarberg: @richardveryard @tetradian anyway, most people are controlled by their lizard brain. It beats both left & right brain any day
  • mikerollings: @tetradian L/R brain ignores research of multiple intelligences – many different types of thinking and more than one way to learn

IT-architecture, systems-development and other IT-related matters:

  • joemckendrick: Enterprise IT’s new role:  coordinator, facilitator for both in-house and external technology services….  http://tinyurl.com/2vh3kfm #itarch #entarch

And another discussion on cloud and ‘shadow-IT’:

  • rtolido: 5 companies that thrive in the age of Shadow IT http://bit.ly/9YwTqa thx @jfurneaux
  • tetradian: cloud + mobile etc creates possibly-risky shadow-IT, much as with take-up of PCs 30-20yrs ago – #entarch is key to reduce risk
  • erikproper: #entarch EwitA may also be the cause of Shadow-IT. Depends on the EA style and governance style …
  • tetradian: “depends on the EA style and governance style” – agree – #entarch *as* governance/guidance is key here
  • erikproper: Well, “architecture governance” is key in realising any EA i think. To avoid shadow-IT one needs a fitting EA and AG.
  • tetradian: I presume ‘#entarch EwitA’ is classic IT-centric ‘the-world-revolves-around-IT’ version of EA? – if so, yes, agree // in classic IT-centric view, cloud makes EA (ie EWITA) redundant; but to make cloud work, need more/better EA, not less
  • erikproper: Something like that … but then there is “Frozen” Cloud and “Flex” Cloud. “Frozen” clouds lead to shadow-cloud-use …
  • tetradian: “Frozen clouds” – hence EA-as-governance again, as education about *personal* responsibility for mgmt of enterprise risk
  • chrisdpotts: @tetradian What happens when the ‘shadow’ meets the ‘cloud’?
  • tetradian: @chrisdpotts darkness falls… rain, thunder, lightning, all that sort of thing… or the business-equivalent thereof, anyway 🙂

Society, culture, sustainability and corporate social responsibility:

  • josvanoosten: RT @ComplexitySol We’re not too many, we’re just too stupid. We have to reorganise ourselves, we have a design problem http://bit.ly/cwkbHZ #society #sustainability
  • CreatvEmergence: RT @johnt Biological Altruism (Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy) http://bit.ly/dj6uND <“Contrary to what is often thought, an evolutionary approach to human behaviour does not imply that humans are likely to be motivated by self-interest alone. One strategy by which ‘selfish genes’ may increase their future representation is by causing humans to be non-selfish, in the psychological sense” – hooray! – an American source that breaks out of the Darwinist deadlock and puts the lie to that most odious of American ‘philosophers’, the ‘high priestess of selfishness’, Ayn Rand…
  • CreatvEmergence: From Hierarchy to Panarchy: The unfolding of a global paradigm shift http://bit.ly/9ZSzmH <useful #futures articles – also #society #entarch #orgarch etc
  • CreatvEmergence: RT @livingarchitect – Earth 2.0 – Blog: Earth V2 – Living Architecture – http://bit.ly/cx30W3 <“Earth 2.0 – it’s time to upgrade” – the ‘upgrade’ being a change to nature-sensitive technologies and social models – a rather bizarre metaphor to describe human/socioeconomic rather than natural-world change…?

  • SAlhir: RT @technoshaman @EnlightenNext: New blog post: Cultural Evolution, Gypsy-Punk Style http://bit.ly/9t6zHM <on ‘failure’, “lack of failure is probably a sign of lack of talent” – interesting, challenging, and, uhh, perhaps a trifle coarse for some tastes, but reminds one of Frank Zappa?
  • SAlhir: RT @umairh Prosperity isn’t consuming more trinkets, cheaper. It’s producing more of what’s priceless: passion, purpose, care, love, beauty, trust. <okay, so how do we build that into #entarch #bizarch #bmgen etc?

    2. “I wish I didn’t work so hard” [this from every male patient, less so for females];
