Book Description

June 19 2008 0849385172 978-0849385179 1
Driven by the need and desire to reduce costs, organizations are faced with a set of decisions that require analytical scrutiny. Enterprise Architecture A to Z: Frameworks, Business Process Modeling, SOA, and Infrastructure Technology examines cost-saving trends in architecture planning, administration, and management.

To establish a framework for discussion, this book begins by evaluating the role of Enterprise Architecture Planning and Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) modeling. It provides an extensive review of the most widely deployed architecture framework models. In particular, the book discusses The Open Group Architecture Framework (TOGAF) and the Zachman Architectural Framework (ZAF) in detail, as well as formal architecture standards and all four layers of these models: the business architecture, the information architecture, the solution architecture, and the technology architecture. 

The first part of the text focuses on the upper layers of the architecture framework, while the second part focuses on the technology architecture. In this second section, the author presents an assessment of storage technologies and networking and addresses regulatory and security issues. Additional coverage includes high-speed communication mechanisms such as Ethernet, WAN and Internet communication technologies, broadband communications, and chargeback models.

Daniel Minoli has written a number of columns and books on the high-tech industry and has many years of technical hands-on and managerial experience at top financial companies and telecom/networking providers. He brings a wealth of knowledge and practical experience to these pages. By reviewing the strategies in this book, CIOs, CTOs, and senior managers are empowered by a set of progressive approaches to designing state-of-the-art IT data centers.

3.0 out of 5 stars Very Good Text Book But..... July 6 2009
By Ahmed Al Mousawi - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I have read the first 4 chapters of the book so far and my views on it:
1. Difficult language, stuffed too much for University type lectures
2. Too explanatory and repetitive; especially the first 3 chapters.
3. Dull has no start and end guidelines; very nested discussions
4. Un necessary theoretical formulas and too much of a jargon (for me at least not required)
5. Rich and wealth of information, can be used as a reference for creating strong RFP document

i don't know, i did not like the book, although, am consistent on reading it and finish it to the end, hope will find some more good easy chapters to digest and understand. Good Luck guys
4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting May 18 2014

Though the concepts sometimes might be a bit confusing, and the figures/frameworks might also not be that clear. Is missing more examples. Overall is ok.
3.0 out of 5 stars Don't use with Kindle App Sept. 30 2014
By jg - Published on Amazon.com
This book drones-on a bit and if you're thinking about using the Kindle application on a Mac or iOS to read it -- think again! Like most, if not all, the Kindle textbooks it is a collection of scanned images so it barely scrolls and all the Kindle features regarding text don't work.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing Jan. 6 2010
By Christopher Bertelsen - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Personally, I found this book disappointing.

I was hoping for a book that provided analysis and comparison between frameworks and models. For the most part, the book lists out a bunch of buzzwords and defines them. This was all stuff available on the Internet.

5.0 out of 5 stars SOA Networking evolves to Cloud Networking and Cloud Computing Oct. 9 2009
By Gary E. Smith - Published on Amazon.com
Having worked in the Telecommunications Industry for a number of years, I was aware that Dan Minoli has long been viewed as a guru in the industry. He has numerous books to his credit and has written articles for a number of Networking and Telecommunication Magazines.

A few years back I took an interest in XML, Web Services and Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) particulaly from the aspect of how "Services" might impact networking. I read and had discussions with many leaders in the industry on the topics of SOA Security, Governance and Networking. This interest lead me to the opportunity to collaborate with Dan and I made a contribution to this book on SOA Networking (Chapter 11) outlining my vision of where I thought this field was evolving. Since this book was published we have seen that the term "Global SOA" has been replaced by "Cloud Computing". Thus the reference in the book to my blog "SOA Network Architect" should now reference my new blog the "Cloud Computing Architect".

This book is an excellent overview of Enterpise Architecture Frameworks and the necessary IT Infrastructure needed to support them.
