From the Publisher
More advanced than traditional system planning approaches, Enterprise Architecture Planning (EAP) outlines a stable business model independent of organizational boundaries, systems and procedures; defines data before applications; and allows data to determine the sequence for implementing application systems. This invaluable book offers a common-sense approach to EAP and includes numerous examples of architectures, procedures, checklists and useful guidelines.

This book is VERY GOOD as a help to understand Enterprise Architecture, one of the key elements of any IT Systems Plan for a business.
It describes what is Enterprise Architecture, how it should drive the creation of an integrated IT systems plan for either a big corporation or a small business and the steps to conduct a Enterprise Architecture Plan.
It comes as well with useful references to audit the current status of and recommend future direction for Enterprise Architecture, Data Architecture, Application Portfolio, IT Infrastructure, etc.
The only drawback it is due not to the book but to the time going by: it was written 15 years ago (1995) and that's a lot in Information Systems. It should be refreshed with many new concepts like SOA, massive usage of middleware, clould computing and many other IT practices.
Anyway, I do recommend it.

Este libro es MUY BUENO para ayudar a entender qué es una Arquitectura Empresarial (Enterprise Architecture), uno de los elementos básicos de cualquier Plan Director de Sistemas para un negocio.
Describe que es la Enterprise Architecture, como debería guiar la creación de un Plan Director de Sistemas, integrado y efectivo, para una gran corporación o una PYME. Además, repasa con detalle los pasos necesarios en un proyecto de Enterprise Architecture.
Viene con un buen conjunto de material de referencia que te ayuda a preparar una auditoría del estado actual de la Enterprise Architecture, Arquitectura de Datos, Portfolio de Aplicaciones, Infraestructura IT, etc.
La única parte negativa no se debe al libro, sinó al paso inexorable del tiempo: se escribió en 1995, hace 15 años, y por tanto está algo desfasado por el rápido avance de los sistemas de informacvión. Debería refrescarse con muchas de las tendencias que han aparecido durante la última década, como la adopción creciente de SOA, el uso masivo del middleware, Java, Cloud Computing y muchas otras.
En cualquier caso, lo recomiendo vivamente.

Caveat aside, the techniques and many of the elements of the framework provided in this book are invaluable to creating any enterprise framework or initiating and managing a process improvement program. While Chapter 1 describes enterprise architecture planning in the context of the Zachman Framework, all of the subsequent chapters can be applied to any framework, which what makes this book as valuable today as it was a decade ago. Specifically, Chapter 3 (Planning), 5 (Enterprise Survey), 8 (Application Architecture), and 10 (Implementation Plan) are among the best of the best practices for approaching any project that is enterprise-wide in scope. For that reason I continue to keep my worn copy of this book nearby as a reference.
Despite my views on the Zachman Framework and some of its limitations and challenges, you may not have a choice - if you are on a team that is refactoring your enterprise in accordance with the Zachman Framework I recommend that you visit the Zachman Institute (see ASIN B00016NEXI) and augment the decade old material in this book with the up-to-date content available on that site.
If you are still in the exploratory stage and are considering this book because you want to learn more about either the Zachman Framework or EAP I recommend that you not only purchase this book (for the reasons cited above), but that you also read "How to Survive in the Jungle of Enterprise Architecture Framework: Creating or Choosing an Enterprise Architecture Framework" (ASIN 141201607X).
