Building Enterprise Information Architectures
Less technical and detailed than other like texts, this book sets out to put Business Executives and Managers back in control of their Information Systems Architecture. The approach utilized in this book takes the mystery out of technology, and is based on information processing concepts and breakthroughs that have been largely ignored or buried in technical jargon. This worldwide approach is not limited to any language or cultural constraints.* Provides the easy to use Zachman Framework to develop the business views of an architecture. * Discusses Platos Classification Theory as used for information processing. * Data to Process Affinity helps segment the architecture into components. * Describes how DBMS, Data Dictionaries and Distributed Computing were intended to be used to control the architecture in companies. * Shows that Data Modelling based on classification theory needs to be used by business people to understand their information needs. 1.
