Doing the Math - Valuing Architecture as Investment

When people discuss architecture they often talk about architecture being more business focused and less IT focused. In fact, this statement has taken on the makings of a trend in and of itself. We often get caught in the hyperbole and grandiosity of statements about architecture instead of focusing on useful practical examples and things people can use today. The real opportunity to show value lies with an oft-misunderstood aspect of technology as an investment. . .
Three Keys to Evaluing Technology Techniques
We constantly hear people talking about value creation and architecting a solution or enterprise. From our perspective these things are semantically equivalent. The key skill in understanding value addition in business is valuation. What architecture teams in most businesses tend to lack is this additional value information. Yet value from technology investment is precisely what makes a design different from what you expect from an engineer. . . 

Enterprise Functionality: A Concept to Fix IT Sprawl

The concept of "Enterprise Functionality" is something that a lot of organizations have been chasing after over the years. It is the universal collection of functionality that the business can build once and reuse over and over. It was the promise of Java 10 years ago. It was the promise of SOA as a reference point 5 years ago. The reality of this pursuit is not the window dressing. It's a conceptual change for the business and for IT. . .
