An Architect by personality type and interest, I enjoy the challenge of creating a structured framework around that amorphous area most business folks refer to as "computer stuff." Simply put, Enterprise Architecture helps the business know whether or not the resources they're investing in process and technology improvements are actually delivering to them a competitive advantage in-line with their strategy. If not, it provides a means to achieve that transformation.I find many architects exist in a state of paralysis: either they want hard-and-fast rules for Enterprise Architecture (EA) and exist motionless until they find the one "right" answer; or they are so overwhelmed by the concept that they obfuscate their paralysis by constantly demanding more details from others.I relish complexity and understand that EA is as much an art as it is a science--a practice that requires equal parts experience, perspective, technical expertise, and judgment.
