Started putting together a tutorial deck this morning for an Enterprise Architecture Methodology which is more business based than IT. Having watched IT over the years get lost in the technology details I though it was about time to create an approach towards really designing Enterprises; the thoughts I had years ago when I presented at the IBM Application Institute and AIAA Operations conferences. Why couldn’t you design an Enterprise (not just the IT) the way you design any other product. Years later, several “internships :-)” in other roles within the corporations, and researching various methods from multiple disciplines I’ve started to integrate these into a design methodology:
The above approach has business model as the root where other aspects are details to that end. That is IT Planning is based upon enablement of the business model, Market Planning, etc. all come from that common root.
