OF NEW ENTERPRISE ARCHITECTURE BOOKS
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.
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
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.
TEN - The Enterprise Newsletter
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.
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.
