“Cutting EA to the Bone” – The Pragmatic Enterprise Architecture Framework (PeaF)

Not having posted something for a while I thought it would be a good start to the New Year and share a free Christmas gift with those of you are Enterprise Architects or involved with/in delivering Business/IT transformation and/or alignment.

The PeaF website positions it in the following way:pragmaticea2

PeaF has been formulated over a large number of years by understanding what works and what does not work in a pragmatic sense.

PeaF provides a quick start toolkit necessary to begin and sustain an Enterprise Architecture programme of work for organisations seeking to infuse and reap the benefits EA can bring.

Where TOGAF is huge and Zachman is chiefly a taxonomy, PeaF cuts to the heart of what is needed to begin reaping the benefits of Enterprise Architecture. More than just a classification scheme or descriptive content, it provides a toolkit consisting of the vision, communication materials, maturity matrix, risks, plans, Metamodel, principles, processes and metrics required to hit the ground running.

Have a look at the look at the following site: http://www.pragmaticea.com

Please give feedback so that as the author puts it “The more people that are aware of it, and critique it, the better it will be for everyone.”
