Business novel – chapters 00-03

I said in an earlier post that I’m moving more towards describing my ideas on enterprise-architecture and the like into fiction-based form – in the hope that it will make it somewhat more understandable for most folks in and beyond the

Enterprise-architecture – a further-futures report

We’ve explored the current status for enterprise-architecture [EA]; we’ve explored the changes to the discipline over the past few decades. Time now, perhaps, to assess the future – or futures, rather – of its likely onward development and direction. This report is in two parts:

Technology-adoption, technology-evolution and lifecycle-management

What’s the difference between technology-adoption, technology-evolution and lifecycle-management? That’s a question that’s come up recently for me, in part as a follow-up to my recent post ‘Technology-adoption, Wardley-maps and Bimodal-IT‘. The key point here is that, to explain the underlying
