Another discussion about what enterprise architecture might mean in a cloud-native world: It’s probably a good idea to learn about enterprise architecture by talking to someone who’s actually done it. In this episode, we talk with Stuart Charlton, now of Pivotal, but previously of roles where he EA’s, even back in the SOA era! We … Continue reading Pivotal Conversations: A hopeful view of cloud-native enterprise architecture

TechCrunch whiffs out the possibility that private cloud is a thingCoté

Sat, 22 Jul 2017 14:00:07 +0000

“We’re seeing a big trend among customers to move cloud stacks inside customer’s data center for security, performance and governance,” Wang told TechCrunch. There’s not really any qualitative (market share, penetration, or surveys – all pretty easy to lmgtfy) bits here, but I’d take it more as a slightly eyebrow raising thing along the lines … Continue reading TechCrunch whiffs out the possibility that private cloud is a thing

Thu, 20 Jul 2017 20:14:15 +0000

Further on the quest to figure out what a “cloud-native enterprise architect” is: What’s the “business” side of enterprise architecture? And how does EA’ing start mapping to DevOps, cloud-native, and all the new stuff? In part one of this discussion, I talk with Matt Walburn about how EA’s fit into The Business. Check out the … Continue reading Coté Show: North-bound Enterprise Architecture with Matt Walburn – that business/IT alignment dance

Book: Crooked Little VeinCoté

Wed, 19 Jul 2017 02:50:40 +0000

The writing in this book is good, and I’m always a sucker for noir. But it gets tiresome after awhile, all the balls-out crazy stuff and topics.
