Product Description

From the Inside Flap

Effective and efficient use of IT is crucial to all organizations. On the one hand, using IT ineffectively throughout an organization will have a detrimental impact on business. On the other hand, the optimal use of IT puts a huge strain on a corporation′s organizational skills to manage all the IT aspects of a business as a coherent whole. Dynamic Enterprise Architecture: How to Make It Work provides step–by–step guidance to designing, implementing, and managing an enterprise architecture with a focus on embedding this architecture throughout the entire organization.

Written by a team of leading enterprise architects, Dynamic Enterprise Architecture introduces DYA® (Dynamic Architecture for modeling and development) (DYA® is a registered trademark of Sogeti Nederland B.V.), a conceptual and practical model to help integrate a successful enterprise architecture system into an organization. Written by a team of innovators in IT architecture, this groundbreaking book provides accessible tools for designing and implementing the architectural processes within a corporation. Featuring a multidisciplinary approach, it′s the first book of its kind to structurally address the day–to–day ups and downs that every organization encounters when working under architecture.

The authors present a successful field–tested approach to enterprise architecture that enables corporations to achieve their business objectives faster. The key elements of this approach include multidisciplinary teams, purposeful architectural design, and room for deliberate noncompliance with the standard enterprise architecture. With a close examination of management techniques for correct implementation and maintenance, DYA® combines three processes to help corporations get the full benefits of using enterprise architecture:

  • Strategic Dialog companies′ business objectives are determined and are further defined as project proposals
  • Development with Architecture IT solutions are implemented
  • Architectural Services supports the other two processes with principles, guidelines, and models

Complete with useful, tangible tools for implementing and designing the architectural process within a corporation, Dynamic Enterprise Architecture enables business and IT managers, controllers, CIOs, COOs, and CTOs to make major contributions to achieving the business objectives of their organizations.

From the Back Cover

Hands–on tools for implementing, designing, and managing a successful architectural process within a corporation

Based on the authors′ decades of practical experience in the field, Dynamic Enterprise Architecture:

  • Provides step–by–step guidance to help organizations successfully introduce an enterprise architecture system
  • Focuses on the processes to make enterprise architecture work
  • Discusses ways to avoid bottlenecking in enterprise architecture

Format: Hardcover
How to approach enterprise architecture in an agile way? This is the central question that the book is trying to address.
There are a several useful sections, for example a good documentation of the services that an EA function should provide; however the book tends to be predominantly IT focused and describes what EA should do without tackling the how. Is it worth the cost?? Not sure.

Great and Pragmatic 13 Jun. 2006
By Martin van Zonderen - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This is the first book on Enterprise Architecture which actually helps to bridge the gap between Business and IT. The business can

It provides a very pragmatic, yet, powerful approach on how to get overall consensus on the foundations of the enterprise architecture, including products/services, organisation, processes, information and technology.

The framework ensures that the business can understand the full enterprise architecture, while it contains sufficient information for the analyst to proceed.

Looking forward for a new edition with even more practical guidelines

Good idea, but not useful 27 Sept. 2005
By Bing Zhu - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
The title, Dynamic Enterprise Architecture, is very good idea, but I think I wasted time and money when I bought and read the book. In chapter 4, the book described the Dyanmic Architecture model that made disappointed.
1) The concept of Development without Architecture is at least impossible, and I do not think it is right concept in principle. I am architect, and have never heard any enterprise application was developed without architecture. The architecture is basically the solution of the enterprise computer system. I cannot image that system is developed without solution, because it will not work without architecture.
2) Except the non-architecture development issue, the other part of the model is not more reasonable than other architecture models, such as Microsoft's Milestone-Driven Process.
3) From chapter 5, the book described the process of using the Dynamic Architecture. First, the process is not useful. I do not think any enterprise will do the same thing that so complicated and so complex, even they decided to use the Dynamic Architecture. Second, Some analysis and evaluation lack good grounds, such as the Finacial Analysis. The cost is very important factor in the evaluation of the architecture. It depends on the hardware and software architectures. The book just gave a number of the cost, and the benefits. I cannot believe the numbers.

Anyway, I think this is a good idea, and important topic of discussion, so I gave it two stars. BTW, the price, $55, is too expensive. I think it might be worth of $15 if the contents are not so disappointed.
