There’s a nice piece by my colleague Tony Baer on the interface (or lack of it) between enterprise architecture and SOA in today’s CBR, here. Tony was at the Open Group’s Enterprise Architecture Practitioners conference in Austin, Texas, and he explains where and to what extent the EA and SOA camps are coming together. The news is not particularly positive.
Ironically a few weeks back I recorded a podcast with EA guru Jan Popkin, founder and CEO of Popkin Software, which was bought by Telelogic a couple of years back (Telelogic now being bought by IBM). My questions for Jan? How EA relates to SOA, and whether EA should be embarked upon in advance of an SOA strategy. Listen to the podcast if you like here.
As always your esteemed comments are most welcome.
