10 Customized Methodologies to Apply Enterprise Architecture for Enterprise Solutions

10 Customized Methodologies to Apply Enterprise Architecture for Enterprise Solutions

The idea is inspired by medical practice, wherein a medical doctor, who understands the human anatomy, uses the symptoms (narrated by a patient) to understand the problem and narrow it down to specific organ/organs, then applies x-ray techniques to get the necessary insight and uses the x-ray for diagnosis before arriving at possible solution options. Interestingly, this methodology of problem-solving had been a great success in the medical practice that has succeeded in handling human body disorders on time resulting in longevity of people.

The key is to understand "enterprise anatomy" (building blocks) and interaction between them. An enterprise doctor should be able to use the methodology to isolate and treat enterprise disorders on time. We have seen the applicability across a wide range of problems such as across several business verticals and company of various sizes.
