Another discussion about the vexed topic of enterprise-architecture and ‘the Cloud’:

  • 5Di: Delloite: #entarch Does the Cloud make EA irrelevant? http://goo.gl/Ot5rY – one of many similar voices >oh gawd, not again… this is all #itarch not #entarch..
  • chrisdpotts: Deloitte confuses #entarch with #ITarch. Shame. | RT @5Di: Delloite: Does the Cloud make EA irrelevant? http://goo.gl/Ot5rY // You’d expect something called “Corn Flakes” to be flakes made of corn. “Enterprise Architecture”, same principle. #entarch #CIO
  • kvistgaard: RT @chrisdpotts: Deloitte confuses #entarch with #ITarch. Shame. | RT  http://goo.gl/Ot5rY <- Who doesn’t when even TOGAF does?
  • chrisdpotts: @kvistgaard The Open Group is an IT standards consortium. How it values #entarch is very different from eg enterprise execs. #CIO
  • ArtBourbon: @tetradian re Deloitte: Cloud and EA – that’s up there with “does a fish make a bicycle irrelevant?”.
  • gkathan: RT @5Di Delloite: #entarch Does the Cloud make EA irrelevant? http://goo.gl/Ot5rY – one of many similar voices > wiha :o) consltnt #fail
  • jcithinker: @tetradian Delloitte/Cloud/EA I think the question should be “Does actual EA make Delloitte irrelevant?” #entarch

And another discussion on enterprise-architecture and Cloud:

  • aojensen: As phk of FreeBSD says: #cloud is no different to the IBM mainframe. // It puzzles me why so many people put #entarch and # cloud in the same tweet. The former is a mgmt function, the latter a tech concern. // In other words, #cloud is a solution pattern and delivery mechanism. #entarch is about systemic management of all of the enterprise. // Thus, #cloud architect is nothing but a fancy word for solution architect. // Okay, rant over. #entarch
  • tetradian: @aojensen: “puzzles me why .. people put #entarch and #cloud in same tweet” – is valid if about enterprise strategy or strategy-to-tactics
  • aojensen: @tetradian true, but then it is still a delivery mechanism realising a certain strategic/emergent intent.
  • tetradian: @aojensen for viable biz-strategy, #cloud needs #entarch much more than entarch needs cloud – cloud can be biz-lethal without proper entarch
  • dougnewdick: @tetradian @aojensen couldn’t agree with Tom more – whether you are talking EITA or “proper ” EA 😉
  • tetradian: [post] Enterprise-architecture and the cloud http://bit.ly/qBSHqO #entarch #cloud (thx @aojensen @dougnewdick)

Assorted stuff about people and their in-person interactions in the workplace:

  • oscarberg: The power of conversations: 1. They bring people closer // 2. They put data into context // 3. They keep activities together and make work flow // 4. They connect people & information // 5. They create new information & insights // Supporting open conversations, in any direction, is only feasible way to avoid siloed orgs #collab #GoodToTalk #entarch

    Thank you for doing this. It is a great catchup and easy to read and think about the whole conversation.

    • Tom G says:

      Thanks also, Pat. As with a lot of my work, it’s difficult to know whether it’s of any value at all – it really does help to know it’s of value to at least one person anyway! 🙂

      Much appreciated – thanks again.
