AT#2: Demystifying Enterprise Architecture

Enterprise Architecture is still a mystical discipline, ruled by vague frameworks, surrounded by the fog of bloated concepts providing only little practical advice.

Let’s hand over to our friend, Nemanja Kostic who provides a humorous overview about the state of the practice. He makes suggestions that discuss how to demystify Enterprise Architecture,. This suggestions are quite compatible with our vision of Architectural Thinking.

What you should do:

  • heavily downsize the architecture meta-model. Focus your models and maps on value streams, capabilities, business objects, applications, technology components. It is enough to build a great! enterprise architecture practice.
  • build a lean but strict governance that welcomes the architecture work of many members of solution teams.
  • get out of the ivory tower. Sell the idea and significance of architecture to your agile teams and to business people.
