I/T Architecture in Action

Publisher: Xlibris US Release date: 2008-03-31

Description

This book is for business professionals interested in learning techniques for managing change in technology driven companies. It focuses on bridging business and I/T strategies through the Enterprise Architecture function. Unlike many books about I/T, it is not about building things. Rather, it is about what business people can do with what I/T produces.My experience is that a balance between strict rigor and organic innovation works best. The book you are about to read, I/T Architecture in Action, describes this balance. The author, Richard J. Reese, has done a fine job of blending his own experience with industry trends and facts in a book that is not too technical, yet will appeal to technicians. As he says, this is a management book about technology, not a technology book that touches on management.Diane Offereins, EVP/CTO Discover Financial Services LLC.An award winning leader in technology, Richard J. Reese is known for his ability to communicate technical topics to all levels of management.
