  1. Hi Mike,
    I was wondering you you could include a link to our site’s main page on your blog’s main page anchored with the text IT Governance?
    If you need some material for a story, you can find a story here where we have been appointed the lead distributor for ITIL in the States.
    If you could do this we would appreciated it.
    Additionally, I notice you are an author on enterprise architecture books. We, IT Governance, are a specialist publisher in the fields of IT governance, enterprise architecture and best practice. So if you have any ideas for books, we might be interested in publishing them. Please let me know.
    I hope to hear from you shortly.
    Best Regards,
    Jamie Titchener

  2. Mike,
    Looking at some old posts on your blog, I ran across this one that still interests me.
    A little background…
    I’m part of a 8 10 person archtiecture team for a large company in the energy industry. I think EATK may be just what the doctor ordered to structure and organize our EA artifacts and processes within our MS-centric intranet and collaboration environment. Over a year ago we were looking for downloads etc of the package but never found any.
    Recently we are using a UML tool called Enterprise Architect from a company called Sparx Systems to sovle the problem with a light weight EA repository tool.
    Our overall objective is to manage EA content consistent with the TOGAF 9 metamodel and share the information in context as painlessly as possible. What would be required for us to get a look at EATK (commitments costs etc.) if possible at all?
