It is amazing how often I need to share the very basic concept of Enterprise Architecture with my peers, customers, stakeholders, and associates.  Microsoft’s customers often ask about Enterprise Architecture, and when our customers come to visit us in the Microsoft Executive Briefing Center, they are more frequently bringing their Enterprise Architects along for the conversation.  To help clarify our view of EA, I teamed up with the Microsoft Showcase team and Microsoft Studios to produce a podcast describing Enterprise Architecture. 

The podcast is located on the Microsoft IT Showcase site here.

I thought about including a transcript, but I don’t have one.  I mostly spoke from an outline.  If you have questions or comments on the video, please don’t hesitate to contact me and we can collaborate.
