I'm a marketing director working in the IT industry for 20 years. For sometime now, I needed to understand about Enterprise Architecture but it was really difficult for me to find an "easy to read" book. I went through many books and still felt there was something missing. This book clarified everything.Precise, readable and actionable. Being new to Business Architecture, this book really gave me a comprehensive introduction. This book is a must read!

Whilst I thought this book was interesting, I did not feel it addressed key challenges being faced in organisations around 'run-change-run'. Many organisations are implementing SOA and BPM which means even more rigour is required in understanding the customer journeys and experiences, being able to define the orchestration layers of process to capture reuse within the engagement actions needed in customer design - not much on the importance of customer design nor linking of capabilities to customer outcomes. I was also disappointed to see there was no acknowledgement of decision management and the game changing effect that is having and Wil continue to have to be able to differentiate value propositions for customers - see Larry Goldberg who also works closely with John Zachman and influence the business motivation elements of his framework. Good book if you are not familiar with the key concepts of bus architecture - not if you want to look at the governance lifecycle or the context of a solution lifecycle and what is required to be in place to manage the business assets across design and run.

the book does an excellent job of articulating how to design an organisation to run a business,with some practical content. Should be compulsory reading for directors and MBA students alike.

If your business is a believer in Business Architecture; skip the first 5 chapters.
If your looking for tangibles; its not a panacea book. Lots of thinking and consideration.

I like the because it approaches the subject in a very logical way. The use of common English also works well. Good examples complete a great book.
