At Gartner EA 2016

Somewhat to my surprise, via a much-appreciated invitation from Lucy Jones and her colleagues at Gartner’s events-team, I found myself at the Gartner EA Summit conference in London last week. Interesting… Okay, yes, I’ll have to admit to still feeling

At Integrated-EA 2016

Always enlivening and enlightening, and working with what is perhaps still the closest we’ll see so far to a real ‘the architecture of the enterprise’, the Defence-oriented Integrated-EA conference in London in early March is one of the regular highlights of my

Slidedeck from IASA Business Architecture eSummit

A couple of days back I did an online session at IASA‘s eSummit on business-architecture. It seemed to go pretty well – I’ve had a few good comments about it since then, which is always a good sign. 🙂 The

Podcasts and videocasts – any requests?

Just a quick question – or request for priorities, perhaps. I’m at last getting my act together on doing podcasts and videocasts around my existing and future materials. The podcasts will probably be two to five minutes long, on any appropriate
