LICENSED USE OR SALE OF ENTERPRISE ARCHITECTURE  EDUCATION COURSES AND BOOKS BY CLIVE FINKELSTEIN


My name is Clive Finkelstein. I originally established this website in 1995 for use by my company: Information Engineering Services Pty Ltd (IES). I set it up so that IES could communicate to the world its development of courses and its publication of books and papers on the latest IT Methodologies and Technologies, particularly in relation to Enterprise Architecture.

As I have now retired, I have decided to close down IES. I do not want my work to cease when I have gone. I have therefore taken over this website to continue to make my life's work available for use by others: in many cases for free, or at very low cost as follows:.

HISTORY OF METHODOLOGIES

You may know of me as the acknowledged  "Father" of Information Engineering (IE),  developed by Information Engineering Services Pty Ltd (IES) and myself in Australia from 1976 - 1980. 

IE was first fully published in the co-authored book: James Martin and Clive Finkelstein, "Information Engineering", Savant Institute, Carnforth, Lancs (1981). This was the book that started the IE Revolution in the 1980's.

There were problems with some variants of Information Engineering in the 1980's, as discussed in my 2014 paper: What is Wrong with Information Engineering and How to Fix it? (in PDF).

From 1995-2000, I developed an enhanced version of Information Engineering, called "Enterprise Engineering". I developed Enterprise Engineering specifically for the rapid delivery of Enterprise Architecture into production as databases and systems, in 3-month increments of increasing functionality .

This is achieved by a revolutionary new method that derives project plans directly from data models. It also enables reusable processes to be easily identified from data models. This  method is completely new to data modeling.

To communicate Enterprise Engineering, I developed a new 5-day course: "Rapid Enterprise Architecture Delivery Workshop" that I presented throughout the world from 1995 - 2011.  

I fully documented this course in a new book, titled: Clive Finkelstein, "Enterprise Architecture for Integration: Rapid Delivery Methods and Technologies".

  • The First Edition  was published in Nov 2006 as a hardcover book by Artech House in Norwood, MA.

    The First Edition  is still available for purchase from Artech House, or from Amazon for $US159 per copy.
     
  • The Second Edition  was published in June, 2011 as an eBook of 540 pages in PDF, originally for purchase from this website at $A30 per copy.

    The Second Edition is still available for purchase from the Apple iBooks Store at $US33.99 per copy for reading on the Apple iPad; or from Amazon at $US29.99 per copy for reading on the Kindle.
     
  • The Third Edition  was published in Feb, 2015 as an eBook of 574 pages in PDF for purchase from this website at $US30 per copy.
     
  • The Third Edition will shortly be made available for purchase from the Apple iBooks Store for reading on the Apple iPad.
