Part 11 of 22: Have some industries or regions adopted the Zachman Framework more than others?
Have some industries or regions adopted the Zachman Framework more than others?
In this 22 part Enterprise Architecture conversation, John Zachman and Sunil Dutt Jha draw some conclusions, based on client environments, who have adopted the Zachman Framework as the ontology. The Framework is universal. It doesn't matter large - Enterprise or small; Private sector or Public. The world is in a major transition, the Information Revolution commensurate with the Industrial Revolution several hundred years ago. No Enterprise is exempt and it is becoming clear that the customer (Private or Public) wants a "custom" response to their demands and they want it NOW. If the Enterprise cannot provide that response, the customer will get another supplier ... it is too easy. Therefore, every Enterprise is going to have to accommodate extreme complexity (custom responses to every customer) and extreme change (zero time to market) for for every order. Complexity and change are the reasons you have to have Architecture for ANYTHING.
