I did a fourth of my presentation in PowerPoint to set the stage with a common set of vocabulary since there are still no clear definitions on all the EA perspectives. So I gave my interpretation. We spent the rest of the session whiteboard what an EA tool would look like if it was built on the Microsoft stack. I took into account the categories that you see above.
Essentially we wrapped 7 – 10 different tools into one architecture! I will share this architecture through a series of blog entries.
A big thank you to all that attended and participated in my session!
