Enterprise Architecture: The 'loose ends'

A collection of EA posts without a category

About the Book

This anthology from the Tetradian weblog presents a variety of posts on enterprise-architecture that either did not seem to fit any other category, or provided context for those uncategorised posts.

The complete book includes about 40 posts and 90 images from the weblog. These posts are split into four groups:

  • Loose Ends: Perspectives - reviews a range of perspectives on enterprise-architecture and more.
  • Loose Ends: Tools - explores examples and challenges around system-design and system-development.
  • Loose Ends: Other Themes - a wander through a variety of otherwise-uncategorised topics and themes that relate to enterprise-architecture.
  • Loose Ends: The Challenges - assesses some of the often challenging experiences of working in, with, for and around the enterprise-architecture community.
