The only constant is change!

 

has been the battle cry for many years but In the 21st century, just being able to deal with change is no longer enough.

The new battle cry is

 

The only constant is the acceleration of change!

How an Enterprise effects Transformation is now a Strategic Strength (or a Strategic Weakness) where real business opportunities can be gained or real business problems will result.

Those that “get it” will have a serious business advantage over their competitors. Those that do not will be decimated by those that do.

These graphics illustrate where

POET and PEAF

fit with respect to the entire Enterprise Transformation Stack

and with respect to other frameworks

such as Zachman, TOGAF, ITIL and COBIT.

The Pragmatic Ontology for Enterprise Transformation

POET

Click the Logo for more information.

  • POET is an Ontology and therefore by definition tends towards the theoretical like Zachman.

  • However, POET is less theoretical than Zachman with an appropriate level of complexity to make it easily usable.

  • Zachman and POET do not compete. They are complementary to each other.

  • It is not a question of Zachman or POET but more a question of Zachman and POET.

If you have adopted Zachman and are looking for more guidance, then POET can help you.

The Pragmatic Enterprise Architecture Framework

PEAF

Click the Logo for more information.

  • PEAF is a Framework and therefore, by definition, tends towards the complex like TOGAF.

  • However, PEAF is less complex than TOGAF with an appropriate level of complexity to make it easily usable.

  • TOGAF and PEAF do not compete. They are complementary to each other.

  • It is not a question of TOGAF or PEAF but more a question of TOGAF and PEAF.

If you are beginning your EA journey, or are struggling to adopt and gain value from TOGAF, then PEAF can help you.

 

 

Recommend PEAF?

“Yes - It is the only practical approach to true enterprise - technology driven by process improvement and NOT on the latest acronym floating on the web.”
