  • greblhad: A good architect brings order to the structures, a great architect brings balance to the means and ends. #entarch

A very brief exchange that to me summarises the difference between business-centric #entarch and real #entarch :

  • business_design: @rettema how much is your business model worth to you?
  • rettema: @business_design my business model reflects the sincerity of my relationship with the world.

A nice back-and-forth around the relationships between enterprise-architecture, process-management and other ‘architectural’ disciplines in the business:

  • tetradian: [post] Structure, process and purpose http://bit.ly/kWv2xf #entarch #bpm #IRMEAC
  • dougnewdick: Nice + simple RT @chrisonea: RT @tetradian: [post] Structure, process and purpose http://bit.ly/kWv2xf #entarch #bpm #IRMEAC
  • chrisdpotts: @tetradian The processes by which an enterprise changes its architecture are the most significant overlap between #BPM & #entarch // #entarch needs to focus on structurally-significant processes while #BPM is interested in operationally-significant processes too
  • MarcoBrambi: RT @process2go @kdierc: Structure, process & purpose http://bit.ly/kWv2xf by @tetradian #ea #bpm #IRMEAC #irmbpm <interesting holistic vision
  • ebuise: @MarcoBrambi @process2go @kdierc @tetradian Yes, but where do we position product/service portfolio?
  • tetradian: .@ebuise @MarcoBrambi @process2go @kdierc “Yes, but where do we position product/service portfolio?” >share b/w #entarch & #bpm?
  • ebuise: @tetradian @MarcoBrambi @process2go @kdierc Share is ok, but in cooperation w/ dedicated bus.function(s) like prod.mgmt, marketing, R&D
  • tetradian: @ebuise “Share is ok, but in cooperation w/ dedicated bus.function(s) like prod.mgmt, marketing, R&D” >strong agree (re #entarch #bpm etc)

A quick back-and-forth about collaboration as enterprise-architecture:

  • SAlhir: RT @HarvardBiz Collaboration as an Intangible Asset http://s.hbr.org/iPgek8 #entarch
  • vernaallee: Agree! RT @maryadamsICA @aremtema I don’t see collaboration as an asset. It’s a strategy for putting knowledge intangibles to work
  • vernaallee: RT @HarvardBiz Collaboration as an Intangible Asset http://s.hbr.org/iPgek8 but the asset is social fabric and collaboration activates it.

Another quick back-and-forth on diversity in architecture:

  • tetradian: RT @chrisdpotts: Diversity is the essence of great architecture #entarch http://flic.kr/p/9U4q3h >also unity within diversity?
  • Robert_Phipps: @tetradian @chrisdpotts unity within the diversity shows the interplay of distinct architectural #styles and specific material constraints.
  • Cybersal: @chrisdpotts Agree w. @tetradian Diversity is important but so is coherence. Essence of great architecture is getting balance right. #entarch
  • chrisdpotts: @tetradian Striking the balance between diversity & coherency #entarch
  • javier_castanon: @tetradian @chrisdpotts Perhaps diversity is essential to complexity; as complexity grows harmony is essential to #entarch success

Getting philosophical about enterprise-architecture:

  • aojensen: Hoverstadt’s chapter on purpose and identity [in upcoming book on EA and systems-thinking?] is magnificent. #posiwid // However, there is one more basic statement to keep remember: Es gibt Systeme. There are systems. #TES #posiwid // This is not a simple claim, it is a basic second order observation of systems as observers. Systems are, but the systems in it’s being is a // construct, which is better understood through systems thinking. Humans construct systems to understand things that behave like systems. // However, that doesn’t mean that they actually are systems. Constructs are metaphysical distinctions. Hence the need for deontologising the // systems concept. And this is where Hoverstadt misses the point: #posiwid and #vsm are first order observations of second order phenomena. // Hence: es gibt Systeme.
  • kdierc: @aojensen getting philosophical on Friday? 🙂
  • aojensen: @kdierc inflight beer and Hoverstadt in the backpack 🙂
