I’ve written in the past about enterprise architecture (EA) and my belief that it is still an undervalued approach, despite the best efforts of various vendors, analysts and even hacks like me.

Now it seems numerous EA stakeholders are making the case that service-oriented architecture (SOA) is in fact another great driver for an EA project. Get to grips with your enterprise architecture first they argue, and your SOA initiatives are likely to be easier to plan and manage…

My colleague Tony Baer wrote us a nice news piece on this area the other day, talking about how The Open Group’s SOA working group proposed an SOA reference architecture, at its Enterprise Architect Practitioners conference in San Diego last week.

Great minds think alike, it seems, as we are about to host a webinar in association with Telelogic that’s going to address the question of whether EA offers a route to more successful SOA.

Telelogic, if you didn’t know, acquired leading EA vendor Popkin Software some time back, and indeed we have that company’s founder, Jan Popkin, on our webinar panel. We’ll be hearing from an end user of EA too – Morgan Baxter, Barclaycard Lead Architect, who offers real-world experience of EA and SOA – as well as leaving time for a Q&A session.

I hope you’ll join us at the webinar, which is on Wednesday February 28, 4pm GMT – click here to register free.
