FEAC Certified Enterprise Architect CEA Study Guide (Certification Press) Reviews
The Authors of this book have done a tremendous service to the Enterprise Architecture profession. The book is plainly written and supported with clear examples of viewpoints and models. This book is also unique from other publications on the topic of EA as there is a complete case study that supports the teaching and study material. The case study helps the reader not only to follow the logic and rational on how the viewpoints and models are developed, but how they are utilized. The discussions on culture and EA provide for a more complete understanding of the role of Chief Enterprise Architect in any organization.
If you are an experienced Enterprise/Solutions/Operational Architect looking for that concise insightful desk reference, or someone looking to get grounded in architecting prior to taking a certification course, add this book to the top of your short list of choices. It lays out clearly the approach to, and rationale for, effective architecting. DoDAF architecture products are demystified through practical descriptions and illustrations, along with demonstrations of how the products are linked to present an integrated set of models.
I had previously been involved in principal driven IT archtectures and undertook some engagements using my company's business architecture methodology. I wanted to better understand the differences between those techniques and formal Enterprise Architecture. I ordered another book as a primer and it was fluff and really did not provide the depth or understanding I was seeking. This book is the study guide for EA's and is very complete. I have found it easy to read and very instructive.
Sadly, the content has been superseded by a newer release of the FEAF. It does cover DoDAF v2.02, which are the majority of the examples in the book. Make sure to buy used or just buy the CD for the pdf version.
This is a unique, valuable reference guide - for a junior architect as well as a seasoned architect.
This is a great book that is well researched and documented. Moreover, the scenario based method used by the authors along with the chapter organization makes the material immediately useful to both the beginner and the expert.
As a novice to the field of modeling and EA I am probably bringing a different perspective from some of the other reviewers. I used chapters from this book to (successfully) prepare for a job interview which required knowledge of data modeling. Despite the depth and comprehensiveness of the book, I was able to pick it up and start absorbing knowledge from the chapters relevant to me. Within the chapters the concepts are laid out clearly and follow a logical progression. The authors' writing style is also lucid and accessible, eschewing the stuffy, technical prose often used to describe such complex subjects. Frequent analogies and examples drawn from everyday life help the reader pick up the concepts quickly. I should also note that the case study about a municipal airport in California is fascinating and further piqued my interest in the field. No doubt professionals working with the Federal Government EA frameworks will get the most out of this book. However, the fact that a newbie to the field was able to simply pick up the book and start grasping the concepts attests to the thought and care that have gone into cogently developing the material.
I cut my teeth in Enterprise Architecture in 1994 while working with John Zachman and Steve Spewak on a government sponsored project. At the time, we only had John's notes from his introductory class, which I still cherish, and Steve's book on Enterprise Architecture Planning. Since that time, I have accumulated over 20 books on the subject and Amazon tells me whenever a new book hits the street. This books stands head and shoulders above the rest in content, organization, and usefulness. It is written by practicing architects for architects.
