    1. Lori Grant says:

      A should-read book on managing technology for managers, executives, and entrepreneurs.

    2. Robert says:

      Enterprise Architecture as Strategy: Creating a Foundation for Business Execution Jeanne W. Ross, Peter Weill, and David RobertsonHarvard Business School PressIn their Preface, Ross, Weill, and Robertson suggest that, until now, research and executive education have failed to make a breakthrough in understanding and improving IT architecture efforts. They then recall Albert Einstein's observation, "The significant problems we face cannot be solved by the same level of thinking that created them. [...]

    3. Jim Loter says:

      Enterprise Architecture is quite an overrepresented topic at the moment with IT think tanks all having slightly different spins on what it means. In Ross and Weill's latest book, EA focuses on business processes and the operational model that governs how to align, integrate, and standard them. IT should be seen as in service to this exercise, not the driving force. As such, this book does not describe an "Information Technology Architecture" and should not be confused as such.The book offers a u [...]

    4. Jason says:

      Great view of EA at the strategic level and the use of models for business planning, not just systems.

    5. Waldemar Roberti says:

      Leitura obrigatória pra qualquer profissional que queira trabalhar com arquitetura corporativa. É provável que seja necessário lê-lo mais de uma vez.

    6. Peter De Kinder says:

      Read my review here: evolute/reviews/eastrat

    7. Ram Chauhan says:

      A thoroughly researched book with lots of case studies. A good reference for business models. A step by step approach for EA. Must have for enterprise architecture.

    8. Talbert Houle says:

      My next master's course will require us to read this book.A review I found helpful was written by Mark P. McDonald and is as follows:Ross, Weill and Robertson do what no one else has done in the area of Enterprise Architecture (EA). They have made it understandable and accessible for the executive. EA is an over abused term, often by IT people to intimidate business users and others. Ross, Weill and Roberston provide a well researched, clearly written approach for enterprise architecture and how [...]

    9. Mark Oppenlander says:

      Here's a quick and easy to read book on the relationship between IT and business strategy. The authors are researchers in the field, two of them (Ross and Weill) from the MIT Sloan School's Center for Information Systems Research and the third (Robertson) from IMD in Lausanne, Switzerland. They take the research they have done on IT infrastructure at a number of businesses and cull a couple of major lessons from that data.The authors stress the needs for firms to understand their operating model [...]

    10. Stephen Bennett says:

      I have now finished the trilogy (IT Savvy, IT Governance and this book) by the MIT Centre of Information Systems Research's Weill and Ross. Whilst this is the middle of the trilogy, it is arguably more relevant to me as an Architect than the other books. The common threads of choosing an operating model and defining who has the decision rights are in this book, plus espousing the importance of having an Enterprise Architecture 'blueprint' to guide the organisation in implementing its chosen busi [...]

    11. Shauntelle James says:

      I had finished reading VALUE INVESTING when I became partucularly interested in this topic. The Value Investing book stresses the importance of 'processes' in generating returns. That's when I decided to dig deeper into the business architecture. I am actually glad I chose this book! It was extremely enlightening and I gain a better understanding of my MIS course. I saw the big picture of how businesses operate and invest. I found the job of the architect designer entreeging; I never realized so [...]

    12. Chris Munson says:

      As someone who has been working as an Enterprise Architect for nearly a decade, I was still able to learn a ton of new methods, models and approaches from "Enterprise Architecture as Strategy." The book's approach to building an Enterprise Architecture is refreshingly simple and straightforward. It helps cure the biggest weakness of all Enterprise Architecture efforts that I have been dropped into - IT not sufficiently involving business stakeholders. The book's use of operating models, core dia [...]

    13. Steve Whiting says:

      Very conveniently summarises itself in the last couple of pages: "EA in many companies refers to a detailsed blueprint of systems, data and technology. It is now clear that EA is instead a business vision. EA begins at the top".And in a nutshell, that's what the book is about - it's the outcome of a serues of case studies and survey done by Harvard Business School, and their conclusions about what works and what doesn't in developing an enterprise architecture. They identify 4 stages of architec [...]

    14. Jacob Sims says:

      This is a fantastic book that outlines and explains many of the business aspects for developing a foundation of execution within a company. With very little technical inclusion, the author strives to deliver a clear picture of corporate enterprise architectural maturity, and its correlation with various internal operating models. Clear and pertinent explanations paint a thorough and accurate fortelling of benefits related to developing various systems in a fashion that lend themselves to driving [...]

    15. Catherine says:

      Very informative for anyone in business, working with Senior Leadership on Strategy, as well as those working in IT. I'm only a Manager Level, but still found this book very informative, even though it is directed more to the CIO level. Only complaint is it is a little bit out of date in some respects.

    16. Marks54 says:

      This is a trade book focusing on how to link organizational design and strategy implementation. The authors are linked to the thinking on "business models" and the Internet. There is not a lot of new material here but it is well presented and coherent. The general principles have been know for a while, but it is useful to see how they get applied in different circumstances.

    17. John says:

      Great Refresher or Primer for anyone struggling to position their systemsAn easy but informative read. If you're new to the concept of enterprise architecture then you'll learn a lot. If you're just refreshing your skills before diving into evolving your company it will give you that much needed outline to guide your actions

    18. Sebastian Giano says:

      An in depth analysis of the new business structure that is needed in order to fully capitalize in the internet based markets and beyond. Very complete, and well thought-out. This book can be quite complex, especially for those with little or limited business strategy knowledge or withoutt an MBA in business.

    19. Evan Hoff says:

      This is a must read for those with a good background in software architecture--especially those with a consulting background. It helps elicit the big picture and puts some shape around large enterprises (or how they are supposed to be).

    20. Darren Smith says:

      Good read bringing together some of the thinking behind the role that an enterprise architecture plays within an organisation. Can not say that I agree with everything that is said, although there is much useful information for IT and business people alike.

    21. Wangyiran says:

      and a little i could understand better, most of the book i don't know it ,i don't understand ,maybe my knowledge is not sufficient,i scan the book,and a little i could understand better,most of the book i don't know it means.

    22. Bohdan says:

      I would recommend this book to new and established EAs. Book was published in 2005 but it doesn't affect its relevance to the subject in 2015.Authors describe operation models, EA maturity stages. I also found a good explanation for IT engagement.

    23. Marcos Moret says:

      Practical and applicable guide to the importance of Enterprise Architecture and how to implement it in your organisation. Essential reading for anyone involved in rolling out a centralised programme of IT platform improvements.

    24. Ben Sweezy says:

      Oh man. I strongly recommend this book to anyone interested in the theory and practice of enterprise architecture and strategic information technology management. If you think that means I don't recommend this book, you might be right.

    25. Teri says:

      I credit both my MSMIT degree from UVA and this book with helping me to land an architecture-related job at the Library of Congress. I will definitely be consulting it throughout my tenure there!

    26. Tyra Athirah says:

      learning knowledge for study

    27. Iaderg says:

      It is a book about the strategic focus of the business models of large leveraged companies using information technology.

    28. Doug says:

      In my opinion, a necessary read for those trying to understand how better to optimize IT. The implied homework assists you in understanding where your own organization can make improvements.

    29. Sergio says:

      Easy read about EA. The trick is how to do the execution

    30. Tim says:

      This is really a must read for anyone in any strategic role - in both technology and, more importantly, business leadership.
