PEAF inherits and builds on POET (ISBN:978-1-908424-07-5) therefore reading and understanding PEAF requires that you have previously read and understood POET. PEAF is also available as a POET+PEAF Box Set. (ISBN: 978-1-908424-28-0). PEAF does not tell you how to be a CxO, Executive, Strategic Planner, Enterprise Architect, Business Architect, Solution Architect, Portfolio Planner, Portfolio Manager, etc, etc, etc. What PEAF does do is expose a holistic environment and context of Methods, Artefacts, Culture and Environment that all of those people exist within. The glue that brings all the parts together into a choreographed whole which makes the whole so much more than just the summation of its parts. PEAF asserts that people working within the Strategising and Roadmapping phases of Transformation already know how to do what they do. The problem is not them. The problem is the context (Methods, Artefacts, Cultural and Environmental things) that they are forced to work within. PEAF aims to increase the maturity (effectiveness and efficiency) of that context, enabling people to achieve their full potential. Increasing the maturity of the context they work within, to one that supports, enables and makes their work easier rather than one which hinders, impedes and makes their work more difficult. PEAF places its emphasis on the one practical issue that causes the most problems for EA efforts: how to get started and keep going, delivering real and verifiable results within the constraints and complex, challenging realities of any large Enterprise. In a sense, PEAF was born out of failure - out of identifying all the myriad of ways in which EA efforts fail in real business practice, and then devising ways to prevent these sources of failure from occurring.

Ever-changing business needs have prompted large companies to rethink their enterprise IT. Today, businesses must allow interaction with their customers, partners, and employees at more touch points and at a depth never thought previously. At the same time, rapid advances in information technologies, like business digitization, cloud computing, and Web 2.0, demand fundamental changes in the enterprises’ management practices. These changes have a drastic effect not only on IT and business, but also on policies, processes, and people. Many companies therefore embark on enterprise-wide transformation initiatives. The role of Enterprise Architecture (EA) is to architect and supervise this transformational journey. Unfortunately, today’s EA is often a ponderous and detached exercise, with most of the EA initiatives failing to create visible impact. The enterprises need an EA that is agile and responsive to business dynamics. Collaborative Enterprise Architecture provides the innovative solutions today’s enterprises require, informed by real-world experiences and experts’ insights. This book, in its first part, provides a systematic compendium of the current best practices in EA, analyzes current ways of doing EA, and identifies its constraints and shortcomings. In the second part, it leaves the beaten tracks of EA by introducing Lean, Agile, and Enterprise 2.0 concepts to the traditional EA methods. This blended approach to EA focuses on practical aspects, with recommendations derived from real-world experiences. A truly thought provoking and pragmatic guide to manage EA, Collaborative Enterprise Architecture effectively merges the long-term oriented top-down approach with pragmatic bottom-up thinking, and that way offers real solutions to businesses undergoing enterprise-wide change. Covers the latest emerging technologies affecting business practice, including digitization, cloud computing, agile software development, and Web 2.0 Focuses on the practical implementation of EAM rather than theory, with recommendations based on real-world case studies Addresses changing business demands and practices, including Enterprise 2.0, open source, global sourcing, and more Takes an innovative approach to EAM, merging standard top-down and pragmatic, bottom-up strategies, offering real solutions to businesses undergoing enterprise-wide changes
