“...one model-type to rule them all...”
Enterprise Canvas is a simple yet powerful method and notation to model any aspect of the enterprise, building on a core concept of 'everything as a service'. It was initially designed for enterprise-architecture and related business needs, but will also be useful in many other areas.
Although Enterprise Canvas can be used as modelling-technique in its own right, its real role is to provide a consistent means to bridge across many of the disparate model-types in use in enterprise-architecture - hence the jesting claim of 'One Model-Type To Rule Them All'. Frameworks and notations that Enterprise Canvas draws upon, and is compatible with, include Zachman, Archimate, UML, BPMN, Business Motivation Model, Business Model Canvas, Viable System Model, VPEC-T, PDCA, OODA and the ever-ubiqitous SWOT.
This ebook is an edited collection of articles from the Tetradian weblog (http://weblog.tetradian.com), on the Enterprise Canvas model-type. This updated edition includes all weblog-posts on Enterprise Canvas up to end of January 2014; there'll be further new editions of this ebook from time to time, to incorporate later posts and practical experience.
