Ontology plus Methodology creates Architecture.
The methodology, by itself, creates Legacy
John Zachman, CEO Zachman International
It’s important to create single variable architecture models than creating multi-variable implementation models and call it “Architecture”. Single variable models are key to longevity of Architecture. Also, it’s important to link strategy models to the operational models using six stages of reification.
Digital Architecture is key to Digital Transformation. Of course, Digital Architecture is not a random set of models drawn for just a few stakeholders. Understanding of Digital Anatomy is the key to create Digital Architecture.
The Digital Architecture and an Instance of The Digital Architecture are two different things.
