Following on from yesterday’s post, I’m only just home having attended a fascinating talk on Enterprise Architecture, hosted by the British Computing Society and presented by Sam Holcman. As I understand it, there are few better people from whom to get an introduction to the subject.
The history of the discipline, terminology, application and potential implications in the current transition from the industrial economy to a knowledge-based world was explored. Unfortunately the session only lasted an hour; there’s certainly enough to the subject to cover many days and weeks.
Having only limited exposure to the world of Enterprise Architecture I did feel a little like I was attending an unfamiliar support group, a la Fight Club.
