In other words, it sounds like it was written by their sales force.

Not a book I will recommend for a novice or someone interested in grasping the entire meaning of Enterprise Architecture.

I'd suggest saving your money and pickup another book on the subject, but there really aren't any...

Format: Paperback
This book is a mature book on Enterprise Information Architecture. By mature I mean thorough and packed with wisdom gained through experience. I am a member of the Microsoft camp. I have been for a long time now, and I have no intention of switching to IBM, but I wish Microsoft would be producing books like this that included their technology. Microsoft may able to in a few years, but they are no where close to being this mature with their Enterprise Architecture tools now. The Microsoft MDM tools are showing signs of improvement with Denali, but they still have a way to go before the product is a competitor to the IBM MDM stack.

This is one of the best real world Enterprise Information Architecture books I have read. It starts off with a few chapters that go into great detail introducing and defining Enterprise Information Architecture. It then has individual chapters that detail the individual topics. They include A Conceptual and Logical View, Component Model, Operational Model, New Delivery Models: Cloud Computing, Enterprise Information Integration, Intelligent Utility Networks, Enterprise Metadata Management , Master Data Management , Web 2.0 World, Dynamic Warehousing, and New Trends in Business Analytics and Optimization.

This book does an excellent job of making the case for architecture in the enterprise. The concept of architecture is hard enough to sell on individual software development projects, but on an enterprise level it is usually treated as a four letter word and the word is not "good". So many places today have what they call an Enterprise Architecture group, but rarely do they do anything that has to do with Enterprise Architecture. If you curious as to what they should be doing, read this book.

The book references maturity models frequently.

This is one of the most confusing books about EA that I have ever read or purchased. The book is full of jargons about the jargons. It's repetitive and IBM centric. There is nothing unlocking on Business Insight about this book. It's probably a good reference material on terminologies and concept interpretation of IBM's way of EA. Not a book I will recommend for a novice or someone interested in grasping the entire meaning of Enterprise Architecture. It's not worth the price in my opinion. STAY AWAY from it.

I gave the "5-star" rating not that I love the book, but that it met my expectations for a class I am taking. This is required text and was cheaper and certainly faster on delivery than any other store.

Was required to purchase this book for a Master's level course. Having read through the first five chapters, I am no more impressed with IBM as an organization, as I was before I started reading it. I personally find the style of writing employed by these authors to be rather painful. Similar to my own experiences working with IBM global services, over the last several years as a client, they seem to say a lot of nothing...repeatedly. I'd suggest saving your money and pickup another book on the subject, but there really aren't any...

A colleague made the comment in a meeting recently that people at IBM seem to have substituted acronyms for thinking. To whatever extent this is true, this book can be used as evidence. It is as though the authors had a stack of index cards with acronyms written on them and kept moving them around in patterns that made some vague sense at a high level. Whenever a meaningful phrase can be reduced to a meaningless acronym, they do it. In other words, it sounds like it was written by their sales force. Not useful for serious hands-on systems architects.
