About Straight Talk

StraightTalk-business architecture distilled, simple with a bit of fun

It’s time for straight talk on business architecture.

The concept of business architecture has its roots in the ideas of many different people and techniques over the years, but it really started to formalize as a discipline around 2010. There is now an established body of knowledge, certification, and an accredited training program, as well as events and communities all over the world, supported by a growing market of professional associations and for profit organizations that offer related services and tools. It’s catching on as new organizations, industries and countries engage faster and wider than ever before.

Even though a fair amount of formalization has taken place, there are a lot of sources and voices out there on the topic of business architecture. That’s a really good thing, but it can demand a lot of precious time and energy to try to put all of the pieces together — unless you’re knees deep in the subject. Enter StraightTalk.
