The Architecture Development Method is a generic process – so it is always likely to be adapted to meet your specific needs. Here we look at some of the key points to bear in mind about the architecture development cycle.
Architecture Frameworks have an undeserved reputation for being theoretical and passive. In this article we argue that the popular frameworks, such as TOGAF or Zachman, need to be tailored and adapted to create a set of active and useful frameworks – called Multiple Integrated Architecture Frameworks (MIAF).
