New Resource Available for Enterprise Architecture Community
LOS ALAMITOS, Calif., 15 November 2013 -- Enterprise architects now have a new community and information resource at their disposal thanks to the efforts of the Enterprise Architecture Body of Knowledge (EABOK) Consortium and The MITRE Corp.
The EABOK website offers enterprise architecture practitioners and researchers a centralized location for exchanging knowledge about the profession, including methodologies, perspectives on the discipline, research results, and more.
The online community will be managed by the EABOK Consortium, an independent organization supported by IEEE Computer Society, the Federation of Enterprise Architecture Professional Organizations, and several related professional organizations. EABOK started out as a standalone MITRE Corp. publication called The Guide to the Evolving Enterprise Architecture Body of Knowledge.
"This is the culmination of a year's worth of work," said Charlene "Chuck" Walrad, IEEE Computer Society Vice President of Standards Activities. "Placing EABOK under management of a consortium will make this valuable information available to all. We welcome enterprise architects to visit the site and contribute content."
Besides collecting and reviewing information for the EABOK site, the consortium will help evolve the field through information sharing, hosting face-to-face meetings and fostering dialogue among practitioners. Enterprise architecture practitioners and researchers are encouraged to share their work by visiting www.mitre.org/eabok and clicking the "Contributions" tab.
"The new EABOK will 'bring the world to bear' with a community-based governance structure," said Lou Metzger, MITRE fellow and corporate chief engineer. "A successful EABOK will have a full body of relevant content, populated by the professional community with expertise in enterprise architecture and access to EA students and practitioners at all levels."
