Thank You (please remember to fill out an evaluation) (including the kitchen sink)
Are you (or is your organization) looking for an end-all fix-everything for-every-situation approach?
To effectively do this, an Architect Needs ... <ul><li>An Architectural Body of Knowledge (ARBOK) </li></ul>
What is the Business Strategy? <ul><li>How is this communicated to all involved? </li></ul>
Is an Enterprise Architecture Needed? <ul><li>Are you up on Zachman, TOGAF, FEAF, PBA, EATK? </li></ul>
Which SDLC models will Reduce Risk/Add Value? <ul><li>Are your model choices aligned with business needs, team skills and stakeholder understanding? </li></ul>
Balancing your Architectural Practices <ul><li>Are Patterns part of your practices? </li></ul><ul><li>Is your Maturity Model more than a buzz-word? </li></ul><ul><li>It all works together! </li></ul><ul><li>Did you Design for Operations? </li></ul>
Wow! That’s a lot to Know ! <ul><li>How do I stay educated on all this? </li></ul>Collaborative Community Driven Prescriptive Driven Adoptive Driven
Succeeding by Failing Less… If we reduce our un-success by 30% (that’s still 46% failure) we can save $M annually (small, medium, and large) By using our architectural smarts , we can reclaim lost ground to both misperceptions and actual performance…
Our Architectural Knowledge is the Key to our Success… … the Fruits of this Knowledge are only found in Our Practice of Architecture
