Now comes a classic, pro and cons on data repositories.
Now let me battle with SaaS after we all had our experiences with that model
Many people asked me how to start as a new EA Director, so I picked on all the different points I picked up.
Lets look at the different types of EA that may not be too ideal. I have the negative habit of at least two of the types, so I am trying also to be critical with myself here
Lets focus back on the human brain. In the last of these episodes I explained how we multitask but on the conscious level only single task, today I will lock at another important architecture of our operation system.
Let today look at the difference in data projects
Today I will go to pure logic and show where the border of pure logic has been calculated in using nothing than pure math. Some years ago all architect did study math at long and therefore knew Goedels Incompleteness theorems by heart. Since this has changed I will present them today, as I am going to reference them often in the future.
This week is all about global EA. This is really part 1. Enjoy!
Well stress as an EA is certainly dealing with many stakeholders, but let us take a closer look!
Today I will talk about the inherit problems we have with language and models, so with the limitations on Ontology. I have experienced that many EA and other communication professionals actually have never been introduced to W V Quines work on "Word and Object" from 1960 so that is why I mention it here with the consequences in this short episode.
This week I am going for a third episode on something very seldom mentioned
Today let us focus one one of the big ones
Many know this paradox from oil demand in economics, but let me show where this matters in our area.
Today I will discuss something that most EA hate, but there is a good reason.
Since many architectures work around the globe lets talk about Global System Architecture
Since you using social media by downloading this episode you may be interested exploring social media and EA
Today I will lock at risk management in the financial area and look how it affects EA
Today a fun episode with a sting. I will talk about:
The heaviest element known to science was recently discovered by university physicists. The element, tentatively named "Administratium," has no protons or electrons and thus has an atomic number of 0. However, it does have one neutron, 15 assistant neutrons, 70 vice neutrons, and 161 assistant vice neutrons. This gives it an atomic mass of 247. These 247 particles are held together in the nucleus by a force that involves the continuous exchange of meson-like particles called "morons." Since it has no electrons, Administratium, is inert.
However, it can be detected chemically as it impedes every reaction with which it comes in contact. According to discoverers, a minute amount of Administratiumadded to one reaction caused it to take over four days to complete. Without theAdministratium, the reaction occurs in less than one second. Administratium has a half life of approximately three years, at which time it does not actually decay, but instead undergoes a reorganization in which assistant neutrons, vice neutrons and assistant vice neutrons exchange places. Studies seem to show that the atomic mass actually increases after each reorganization.
Research indicates that Administratium occurs naturally in the atmosphere. It tends to concentrate in certain locations such as governments, large corporations, and especially in universities. It can usually be found polluting the best appointed and best maintained buildings. Scientists warn that Administratium is known to be toxic and recommend plenty of alcoholic fluids followed by bed rest after even low levels of exposure.
This is the last one in this series. The next 20 episodes I do not plan to do any multi part series, but more thinking episodes.
After the interruption on the special episode I will continue with the C-Level and EA.
OK, usually I do not do anything related to happenings, however the disclosures of the last few month and their impact are so big to EA that I am forced to this episode. However if you after any moral or political comment you will be disappointed, as I will limit myself only on the EA aspect.
Today I will look at the CEO and COO and explain the EA interaction that are very much dependent on size and setup of the enterprise.
Today I will talk about the interaction of the EA and the CIO. Does that mean Chief Investment Officer. It actually may!
This week I am on holiday so I will publish when I am connected. This weeks episode is the opposite of last weeks. Enjoy
Today an episode that requires you to think more than usual, so recommend not listening at the same time as doing some other brain demanding task.
Given that I am going on holiday I will just publish one episodes for some weeks, so expect 2 episodes per week in three weeks.
Well leaving my usual track, today I will talk about something many people have asked for. Please always remember that this is not an area I am trained, so please always ask for professional help as well
Well no we come to the really interesting part. Is EA right for a shareholder organisation?
Today I will lock at another differentiation that requires different ways to do EA
On strategies I still need to cover the technology element.
Forecasting is an area often not looked at by EA and as such often people always do the same thing year to year.
Well lets go for next step in strategy and today I will go in the baby products industry for examples
For the 400th episode I have made a special case study based episode.
This is an area that most EA miss as they have often not being trained. However if you want to understand why our company is coming up with Industry leadership you need to understand that this means that you are not going for Industry Dynamic mechanisms.
Today I will lock at the stages of industry development and show their importance in the strategy
Today I go back on the series on strategy and here on the industry specific strategy formulation very important if you are an EA that needs to help formulating or really understanding a strategy.
After talking about cooperation lets now look at the life cycle behind this
Strategic Centers are getting more used and are important for Eas, so let us discuss them.
Lets talk about something I did so far not find anywhere else for EA
How will EA change if the enterprise is in a cooperation or a competition mode.
Today let us look at Relation specific for Business Architecture
Let us look at the actors in EA
System thinking and system theory are quite old schools of thinking with a well over 3000 years of history. The formulation of the enterprise as a system is a more recent development from which EA emerged. So within the next year I will start to focus on a overhaul of how we perceive EA and try to explore the foundations and maybe question some of them as EA was certainly build mainly on a very much American system thinking philosophy. Given the may other schools of system theory in this episode I want to ask you to come up with you own ideas.
Another hot topic and how to deal with it.
This episodes focuses on a theme I have so far never discussed anywhere.
Well EA are not the only ones with Frameworks
Today I talk of the Service Profit Chain as well as a bit on anti competitive areas we as EA should stay away
Here a critical view on integration
Given that many thinks we do is build on technical progress it is quite interesting to make a deep dive into this subject.
