  • TEN#24: Systems Development Strategies for 21st Century Enterprises  by Clive Finkelstein, Information Engineering Services Pty Ltd. Published on IES Web Site, December 2003

    Traditional systems development strategies have been based on automating the operational business processes that are used by an enterprise. However this approach does not work well in a period of rapid change, such as experienced today as a result of changes brought about by the Internet. This issue addresses systems development strategies that are based on the strategic plans set by management for the future. These result in systems that can be implemented and changed rapidly. These systems are based on XML, Web Services and on Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) Business Process Management (BPM) XML-based executable languages that are generated automatically from Workflow Diagrams.

  • TEN#20: New Enterprise Architecture Books by Clive Finkelstein, Information Engineering Services Pty Ltd. Published on IES Web Site, October 2002
  • This month we feature two important books on Enterprise Architecture: the first will be published towards the end of 2002; the second will be published around March 2003. While TEN does not usually include book reviews, because of the interest that TEN readers have shown in Enterprise Architecture I thought it was important to draw these two books to your attention. The first book was written by John Zachman. This alone is unique. While John has written many articles on Enterprise Architecture, this is the first complete book written by the originator of the Zachman Framework. It will be released in e-Book format and will eagerly be read by Enterprise Architecture practitioners. It is described briefly in this TEN issue, with more detail in a special issue of TEN when the book is formally released later in 2002. The second book was written by Carol O'Rourke, Neal Fishman, and Warren Selkow. It teaches Enterprise Architecture as a way of thinking about complex problems. I was invited to write the Foreword to the second book. This book is also outstanding; it is a "must-read", as you will see from my comments.

  • TEN#7 - Issue No. 7 : ENTERPRISE ARCHITECTURE AND ENTERPRISE PORTALS by Clive Finkelstein, Information Engineering Services Pty Ltd. Published on IES Web Site, September, 1999

    The seventh issue of TEN discusses the importance of Enterprise Architecture for the design, development and deployment of Enterprise Portals. As Enterprise Portals (or Corporate Portals) provide a central gateway to the systems and databases of an enterprise, it is important that the knowledge associated with these resources be effectively used. While technologies such as XML can be used to integrate dissimilar systems for access from the Enterprise Portal, to try to achieve this integration without consideration of the integrative role of architecture is foolhardy. As it is difficult later to change a building that was not designed by an architect, so also it is difficult to realize the full benefits of an Enterprise Portal if it is built without an Enterprise Architecture.

    NOTE: This issue of TEN is also available, translated into Serbo-Croation. It is at: http://science.webhostinggeeks.com/pojava-i-potencijal.

    NOTE: Additionally, the article "Visible Universal Models" has been translated into Serbo-Croation at: http://science.webhostinggeeks.com/vidljivo-univerzalni-model.

  • TEN#6 - Issue No. 6 : Corporate Portals for Business by Clive Finkelstein, Information Engineering Services Pty Ltd. Published on IES Web Site, June, 1999

    The sixth issue of TEN discusses the emergence of Corporate Portals and Enterprise Portals over the next 2 - 5 years. These represent the evolution of Data Warehouses and Data Marts into a single point of entry: via corporate intranets or the Internet. Managers and staff can subscribe to receive scheduled reports or exception notification of defined events. These can be delivered to a workstation, browser or printer, or by email, pager, fax, PDA, phone or voice mail anywhere in the corporation or the world. While Data Warehouses provide access to information, Corporate Portals also provide personalized web pages for easy, secure access by staff to most systems needed to do their job. These corporate gateways use XML to integrate access to structured and unstructured knowledge resources throughout the enterprise or the world.

  • TEN#2 - Issue No. 2 : THE INTERNET by Clive Finkelstein, Information Engineering Services Pty Ltd. Published on IES Web Site, June, 1998

    This second issue discusses the effect that the Internet will have on business over the next ten years. It shows how the impact will be "orders of magnitude greater than the Year 2000 problem" - as most business processes and systems will need to be completely redesigned and redeveloped.
