RESPECT THE ARCHITECT

Escrito el 28 septiembre 2010 por José Luis Fernández en Lean Services

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DJp6cm1EDAw An architect is a person trained in the planning, design and oversight of the construction of buildings, and is licensed to practice architecture. Etymologically, architect derives from the Latin architectus, itself derived from the Greek arkhitekton (arkhi-, chief + tekton, builder), i.e. chief builder.

These days I am reading some stuff related to Systems Architecture, Enterprise Transformation and Enterprise Architecture.

People/Processes/Business/Technology or else Business/ Information/Application/ Infrastructure are appointed as the 4 basic elements or pillars for the architects, apart from IT applications and languages like UML which we’ll be revisiting in one of our discussion threads.

 I am interested in the movement. In the increasing need to build, construct, integrate, and even more, to transform living socio-technical systems as the companies and networks of companies are to get adapted in this period of accelerated evolution.

Regarding the architects, up to now, I have not heard about any specific career called enterprise architecture. So there may be architects all over the organization, or may we refer to them as simply tektons or builders. Not related to the power architecture can grow and build from micro to macro processes. Some come from IT, some from industrial operations, some from marketing, functional boundaries fade out for them.  

In some companies the architect has been the founder, others may be having many disconnected architects building structures not sustainable when assembled, others may not require an architect though their architecture is lean, others claim for architects to be using their flamboyant architecture tools.

In any case these people are respected as the others let them to define the processes they are living in. ¿can you identify them within your organization?
