Today there is no commonly accepted definition of what an enterprise architect is or does, and there is no standard level of service. And with no common-denominating output there is no easy way to measure or compare quality of service. Overall, this is reduces the level of trust that employers can put in enterprise architects. To improve this we need to professionalise enterprise architecture.
In 2010 a new initiative was started to do just that, the Federation of Enterprise Architecture Professional Organizations (FEAPO). David was a founder member of the organisation, representing the BCS, The Chartered Institute for IT, and he will take the forum through the FEAPO objectives, its roadmap, and the progress to date.
