The number one concern cited for avoiding cloud computing is security. And there is a reason for that. Cloud providers have demonstrated some spectacular failures in the past, including Amazon’s near total shutdown of an entire region, Dropbox’s authentication snafu, and innumerous cloud providers that go belly-up. However, in the long run, cloud computing is destined to become more secure than in-house IT. I will briefly describe two dynamics in the...

  Enterprise Architecture is about structuring (or Re-structuring) an Organization’s Business and IT Capabilities. Many Organizations hardly ever attempt to “Architect” their Business and IT Capabilities. But, they are very keen to jump into solution mode and kick-off technical implementation Projects.

A great diagram! You've seen them. You've experienced them. They exemplify the old adage, "A picture is worth a thousand words." Do we give as much thought to what we say and how we say it when we are presenting? What if we applied the same principles to the words we add to our pictures? Great diagrams result in clarity, confidence, peace, and even inspiration! Great speakers can achieve similar results...

This blog is in continuation of my last blog Get Leaner and Address Enterprise Problems - Part 1. One has to remember that “Enterprise Architecture” is not a time bound project or initiative. It’s scientific way of creating, managing and running an enterprise effectively. Of course, a specific enterprise problem could be taken up as a time-bound project.

In architecture, the role of stakeholders is important, no matter what method you are using. In practice I experience something very different. It seems like most architects do not have any stakeholders, and if they have they appear to be other architects or IT representatives. This situation is not ok.
