IT systems will need to adapt, and evolving — or simply adding on to the existing relational database management system architecture — isn’t going to cut it.
What does this mean, if not Hadoop or in-memory as the end-all, be-all? TechTarget writer Nicole Laskowski sums it up nicely: Architecture matters.
It turns out, even that simple statement will require something of a revolution, as Jason Bloomberg explains in a Forbes column.
Bloomberg is an EA expert who spent 12 years at ZapThink, a SOA consultancy firm. Frankly, the rise of service-oriented architecture was huge for enterprise architecture in general, promising to make EAs a major force in businesses.
Apparently, businesses and enterprise architects alike are still waiting for that eventuality. Bloomberg writes that while people have been successful in architecting enterprises, many are not actually EAs or even married to a particular EA framework.
