AVAILABILITY OF NEW ENTERPRISE ARCHITECTURE BOOKS

PERTH, AUSTRALIA – March 31, 2003: Last issue we featured two important books on Enterprise Architecture. While we do not usually include book reviews, because of the deep interest that TEN readers have shown in Enterprise Architecture we thought it was important to draw these two books to your attention.

The first book was written by John Zachman. 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 shortly be available in an e-Book format on CD and will eagerly be read by Enterprise Architecture practitioners.  

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. This book is outstanding; it is a “must-read”. The book is discussed further, below.

1. "The Zachman Framework for Enterprise Architecture: Primer for Enterprise Engineering and Manufacturing" by John A Zachman

This is the long-awaited book on the Framework for Enterprise Architecture, the “Zachman Framework.”  It is the single most authoritative work on the Framework for Enterprise Architecture as it is authored by the originator of the Framework himself, John A. Zachman.

We delayed the release of this issue of TEN so we could bring John’s book to you, but unfortunately it is not yet available for online ordering by readers of TEN. However its release is imminent. It will be available in an e-Book format on CD only – not as a hard-copy book.

When it is released for TEN we will notify you in a special issue. You will then be able to choose to download it online; or instead request for it to be shipped to you on CD.

2. "Enterprise Architecture using the Zachman Framework" by Carol O'Rourke, Neal Fishman, and Warren Selkow

Published by Course Technology, a Division of Thomson Learning, Inc. Boston, MA (2003) ISBN: 0-619-06446-3. Forward written by Clive Finkelstein.

This groundbreaking text introduces Enterprise Architecture and the Zachman Framework, a tool to guide you through the comprehensive process of thinking, reasoning, and communicating effectively about even the most complex problems. It illustrates how business works and how software gets developed and the disjoin that happens between the two.

Alignment, integration, and flexibility are core goals for delivering today’s business solutions. Enterprise Architecture Using the Zachman Framework illustrates these themes and shows tomorrow’s business and technology professional how to organize, design, and construct a solution for any type or size of problem.

More and more corporations including the federal governments of the United States, Canada, and Australia are adopting Enterprise Architecture and Zachman Framework programs. Knowledge of the Zachman Framework for Enterprise Architecture can enable future business workers and leaders to make sure all requisite business controls needed for corporate governance and accountability are implemented properly.

The Framework helps guide practitioners and ensures that when information technology departments build computer systems, enterprise workers’ and managers’ needs and wants can be adequately and timely addressed. Enterprise Architecture and the Zachman Framework provides a roadmap for business survivability and success by focusing on holistic communication, thought, and reasoning with the intent of managing ongoing change in the enterprise.

Professional educators and professional information technologists collaborated to write this book. The book is not about software architectures or technology architectures; it is about Enterprise Architecture and embodies all other types of architecture. The Framework’s creator, John Zachman, validated each of the presented concepts prior to publication. Our world is constantly changing. "Enterprise Architecture Using the Zachman Framework" is a tool that shows you how to manage change in the public and private sectors.
