MSDN Enterprise Architecture Site Launched

  • Comments 4

The Enterprise Architecture site has been launched on MSDN. Enterprise Architecture has become a common practice for large IT organizations. For the first time there is a methodology to encompass all of the various IT aspects and processes into a single practice. However, realizing the full potential of Enterprise Architecture (EA) can be challenging. There are many aspects to EA, including architecture planning, governance, taxonomies and ontologies, all of which impact its success. Without the right guidance, tools, frameworks and methodologies EA can quickly become unwieldy.

Over the past few years, and as software and systems engineering has matured, it has become accepted that there is a clear need for an 'architectural view' of systems.

  • the msdn.microsoft.com server at ip: 207.46.196.115 that i am redirected to by dns is DOWN. It has been unreachable since at least friday last week. The dns resolution seems to redirect me to a unavailable server, therefore i cannot look at the content you are referring to.

    Would you know who to contact at msdn to fix this issue ? The remaing sites work fine and using an explicit working ip (i got from another collegue at another site) works, but is no solutions for browsing. Thanks for any help.

  • You can go to this page and let the site managers know about your issue:
