I was taken by surprise the other day when I looked at my calendar and saw that we are well into August; and before you know it summer will be over and autumn will be upon us. Immediately I started thinking about the ritual year-end strategic planning session that generally looms around now. I’m sure many of you know of what I speak.

In our last blog post, The Next Chapter of Enterprise Architecture: Self-Service, we examined the change in mind-set that seems to be occurring in all corners of the enterprise when it comes to EA.

Enterprise Architecture (EA) has changed exponentially over the years with transforming from an IT-driven initiative to a business strategy necessity.  EA as a field formally took shape in 1987 with the publication of John Zachman’s article “A Framework For Information Systems Architecture”.

Our last post introduced the concept of enterprise intelligence (EI), the CIOs answer to business intelligence (BI).
