  • We witnessing a sea change in software longevity. Unlike the 1990’s when many systems had the half life of a fruit fly today’s systems will be around for a long long time. The platforms we’re utilizing today Washington Monument - highly abbreviated The initial effort was sponsored by the Washington Monument Society.  The cornerstone of the planned 600 foot monument was laid on July 4, 1848 - estimated cost was $1,000,000 In 1855, the architect died. By 1856, the monument had risen to 156 feet (total planned height had been adjusted to 500 feet) - but the Washington Monument Society had only been able to raise approximately $300,000 - construction ceased due to lack of funds. Political factions fought over continuing the construction - leading to no additional public or private funding. The Civil War and Reconstruction interrupted everything. Patriotic ferver rekindled interest in finishing the monument.  Congress passed a resolution on July 5, 1876 establishing a joint commission to complete the project and allocating $2,000,000 to complete the task. When work was re-commenced, the original foundation was found to be insufficient to support the weight of the monument, so it was completely redone.  When work was re-started on the column, the color of the original stone could not be matched.  Today, there is a clearly visible color change at the 156 foot level. The capstone was put in place in December 1884 and the monument was dedicated on Washington&apos;s birthday - Feb. 22, 1985.  It was a rainy day, and President Chester A Arthur caught a cold! Of course, the monument really wasn&apos;t finished.  Work continued on interiors and the grounds until 1888 - an elapsed time of 40 years!
  • Software as Capital Capital as embedded knowledge Reuse - enable, promote, measure CBSE Components IT as core Complexity multiple dimensions - potentially infinite IP Asset management across time and space ip retention, expertise capture Re-invent the wheel
  • Flashline Registry benefits fall into 3 distinct categories: Visibility, Governance, and Analytics or See, Manage, and Measure .

For example, BRM v2.0 derived from BRM v1.0 </li></ul><ul><li>Any EA solution needs to manage the lifecycle of each asset and the horizontal and vertical linkages between assets </li></ul>
