An Excellent I/T Architecture Book
on June 13, 2008
This is a truly wonderful book. The author distilled his nearly 30 years of I/T experience into this book. It is also a practical book and architecture management personal will find valuable information from the book. For example, chapter 2 discussed Principle-Based Architecture and presented various architecture principles; further more, the author presented a practical Architecture Governance Model that consists of some specialized groups such as Architecture Steering Committee and Architecture Review Board etc. to ensure these principles are followed across the enterprise.
Technical person will also find this is an excellent book to read. For most developers and architects, they may know technical aspect very well within their working domain, however, outside their domain they may not know as well or do not know. This book covers different architecture domains such as Application architecture, Information architecture, Network architecture, Platform Architecture etc. After reading this book, you will have a very good over all understanding of I/T Architecture. I highly recommend this book for leader of I/T architecture department as well as technical architects.
