Enterprise Architecture done right drives Enterprise Transformation

Eric Sweden, Program Director, Enterprise Architecture & Governance, NASCIO will be delivering one of the keynotes in the Plenary Session of The Open Group Conference in Philadelphia. I read the abstract for his keynote with great interest. Sweden asserts “Enterprise Architecture” provides an operating discipline for creating, operating, continual re-evaluation and transformation of an “Enterprise.” Not only do I agree with this assertion, but I would add that the proper creation, operation and continuous evaluation of the “Enterprise” systemically drives its transformation.

Service Technology cements the connection between SOA and Cloud Computing

For a while now, I have been blogging about service-oriented architecture (SOA) principles being a powerful foundation for the evolution to cloud computing. In fact, Forbes blogger, Joe McKendrick picked up on this and referenced it in his ZDNet post on 5 signs that SOA has morphed into cloud. So did The Open Group in this article on the Top 5 tell-tale signs of SOA evolving to the Cloud. In other words, there is widespread agreement on the close connection between SOA and cloud computing. So, when I came upon McKendrick's post on Before There Was Cloud Computing, There was SOA, I was wondering what else there is to be said on this subject -- especially from someone who has already highlighted this connection several times across various posts.
