Enterprise Architecture

 
Architecture descriptions and notations

  • ISO Architecture
    Some information on the "Recommended Practice for Architectural Description of Software-Intensive Systems", including defintions of architecture and hints on viewpoints.
  • ArchiMate
    An EA modelling notation (part UML-inspired part SOA-inspired) now looked after by Open Group Forum. The notation is supported by some CASE tools.

 
Software architecture and technical architecture

  • ZapThink
    Home of the ZapThink SOA consultancy. Maybe not 100% EA but the RSS feed is really good food for thought. Also, have a look at the poster - very useful!
  • IBM
    IBM's developer community. Again, a bit on the technical side. Also worth a look is the wiki
  • Microsoft
    Microsoft Architecture resource center and community.
  • InfoQ
    Tracking change and innovation in the enterprise software development community.

 
Architecture blogs / podcasts

  • Software Engineering Radio
    Not strictly about EA but every good EA should know all about good software engineering. This European group produce quality information on all aspects of software, including some topics a little away from the mainstream use.
  • Nick Malik's blog
    Inside architecture.
