Sustain your Enterprise Architecture – taking a few Lessons from Dad

I was sitting with my college-bound son in the initial welcome meeting at his college. Shortly after the meeting, shaking my son's hands, I said, "You are on your own, buddy." In my mind, I was thinking about the architecture project we embarked on as parents 18 years back -- just like one defines and evolves the architecture for an enterprise. But, is my son really on his own? I hope the foundational principles instilled in him will surface at the right junction points, which will ensure that what we architected is viably sustained for years to come. Just like I draw on the values instilled in me by my Dad. Similarly, enterprise architectures have to be sustained over time -- they are not a one-time only, 90 day project with a projected ROI of 200%.
