I will be participating in SOA-Consortium conference being held in Washington DC from March 12-13. One of the main topic I will be focusing on is "Business Architecture". As a result of EA 2010 working group, we have identified Business Architecture as an important aspect of Enterprise Architecture. One of the problems is that there is no clear understanding of what the BA is and how an enterprise should go about creating one.
Surekha Durvasula and myself will be leading a discussion panel to get particpants to talk about their understanding or lack of understanding of BA. Being in Washington, I am sure the dialogue will involve public sector's take on this topic. It will be interesting to see how some of these concepts translate in a public sector settings.
Will let you know how it turned out.
