Storytelling for Architects, Tips from Unfamiliar Places
Part 1 of 3 regarding my theory on “Digital Transformation 3.0” (The irony won’t be lost to the reader). The core tenants are maintaining adaptability, empathy, and efficiencies without falling into the pitfalls of many an ailing business or enterprise. Adapt or Die.
FUI, Animated GIF's, and Zero UI: Engaging Presentations and Artifacts
'Leadership is storytelling'. Storytelling inspiration for technology leaders and architects, from a breakdown of Elon Musk's pitch for a battery to Dungeons and Dragons.
Minimum Viable Product in Hollywood: Case Study and Correlation to Any Enterprise
Fictional User Interfaces, Animated GIF's, and Zero UI. Screens are surely not disappearing anytime soon, the amount of data we can process visually as human beings is not something to be tossed aside. But we can always do a little better, engage our audience a little more, make things more exciting; why not?
Digital Transformation through Urban Planning Theories and Big Data
A current experiment from CBS to "disrupt the disruptor" using MVP. How CBS is betting on this strategy to combat Netflix. Will it be effective? A good litmus test for how many large enterprises are trying to remain innovative, regardless of industry.
Data Visualization for Architects
Correlations and parallels abound in other disciplines derived in times of need, of economic and industrial change. Urban Planning is a science born from rapid transformation, can we apply a vast amount of science to Digital Transformation and Enterprise Architecture?
A Case for A.I. for E.A.
Links to various tools, personalities, and sites that have helped me become a better presenter and ultimately a better architect. A portion of being a successful architect is influence, and when you are trying to influence a decision maker or educate an organization, why not learn from the best?
Seeing the Vertical
I believe machine learning and A.I. is the inevitable future of Enterprise Architecture. Let's talk about what's measurable. Architecture road maps become a valuable artifact in almost any major enterprise; and good road maps show the true business benefits along with the technical, and they should be symbiotic.
Rethinking EA Training
I've started asking different questions as an Enterprise Architect than I would have when I was a Developer or even at a different time in my career with less experience. I've found that I can articulate a vision of the organization when asking certain questions, and I call this "seeing the vertical".
What Do You Do?
An interesting discussion started on LinkedIn by Nick Malik, a principal architect at InfoSys. Regarding "rethinking EA Training", I happen to agree with him. With a widening gap between "Full Stack Arch" and "IT Strategy" for EA practitioners, we need to keep up!
When someone asks me "what do you do for a living?", the question is always hard to answer. Earlier in my career as a developer and engineer, the 'architect' was a mythical figure; a renowned prince or princess that decreed on high the standards on which I worked with, or created the frameworks with what I adhered to.
