Alan Pelz-Sharpe Nails Enterprise Architecture in 10 Notes

I have been tracking CMS Watch for some untold number of years now (I don’t even want to count them up and date myself), and love it even though CM / ECM is no longer the center of my universe as it once was.

Along comes Alan and he nails just about every problem in Enterprise Architecture in 10 short points!!! He presents it as an ECM list, but accurately notes at the end that you can substitute just about any E* problem domain in place of ECM and the list holds. A couple of my favorites:

You have allowed your users to dump content into your repository without concern for process, rules or structure, and now its a humongous mess

You are running a centralized system but really should have a distributed one

Your developers had to fiddle extensively with your ECM platform, and two software versions later it doesn’t play nicely anymore with anything

I’m loving it – this is one for the wall…

CMS Watch has done a fantastic job over the years demystifying the technology of ECM, and repeatedly pointing readers back to the people and process concerns that are the key to ECM success and the most frequent afterthoughts.

It’s also very cool to see what Tony has been turning this firm into in the last couple of years – it’s clearly gaining traction. I always thought the insight was high quality to begin with, but they are conducting more and more surgical strikes on a wider area – search and portals among them. Keep it up, gang. Readers – start tracking this feed if you aren’t already.

    Alan provides useful insights because he not only is an industry analyst but one that is funded by customers and not vendors and therefore better stories will emerge…
