You might of saw the announcement I made that I just joined Gartner. You might be thinking what this means for my blog, right? Well… there will be some changes but I think ultimately they will be good ones. 

Just like with most things, there is good news and the not so good news.

How about we get the bad news out of the way first… So the not so good news is that this will be my last blog post, well at least for the foreseeable future.  I will still keep it alive out here but will not be able to update it.

So this leads to the good news is that I will still be able to share my insights with all of you. I will continue to express myself through Gartner research notes, technology profiles, hype cycles and conferences. Who knows, I may even show up on Gartner blogs as well. While I do love what I have done with "Mike The Architect", blogging on any one platform/persona was never my goal. It’s was simply a vehicle or a means to an end to communicate my thoughts to all of you.

As you might imagine this post is a bittersweet one for me. This closes one chapter and opens another for my public writing to all of you. I have really enjoyed blogging all these years about my observations, experiences and my wild haired crazy ideas. Can you believe it’s been 8 years of Enterprise Architecture blogging? I can't. Goes by fast.

I just want to say thank you to everyone that has subscribed to my blog, provided comments and believed in my guidance.
