  • Architecture made simple

    Logic and presentation.

    The PowerPoint box drawers have had their obfuscatory day.

  • Enterprise architecture gets very information dense even one level down

    It is not helped by the basic megalomaniac drive by the EA profession. Just look at the drill-down diagrams showing just how many creative-control tentacles they want into IT.

  • Keeping it plain and simple: 'Lost in Transformation'

    Forwarded from Rene Hermes:

    I do 100% agree on the challenges of presenting IT or enterprise architecture as simply and plainly as possible. We often use cartoons to articulate what EA and IT planning is all about. See the following three minute video "Lost in transformation" how to explain EA and IT planning in a language everyone understands http://www.alfabet.com/transformation

    Simple and crisp. Does this help?
