We had a really successful Enterprise Architecture (EA) track at Innovate this year — June 2 thru 6, 2013; our best one yet! EA Birds of a Feather session — EA Best Practices — we had about 80 people in the room. Standing room only. We had 16 EA presentations, most of them by customers […]
We wrote up a technical whitepaper that summarizes TOGAF and how you can build, maintain, and gain return on investment on an enterprise architecture with our tooling — System Architect, Focal Point, RAM, and other IBM tools. The technical whitepaper – Building Enterprise Architectures with TOGAF 9 — is available for download for free, here: http://public.dhe.ibm.com/common/ssi/ecm/en/raw14241usen/RAW14241USEN.PDF […]
