  • Pascal H.: I think this book is great. Mostly because its focusses on the execution of strategy and the foundation that you can create with architecture. At this time i am also working on a governmental foundation for the execution of strategy which needs to be a foundation for all governmental organizations. It would be nice if there was any research in this are. e.g. the use of the FEA or other governmental architecture as a foundation for governmental strategy.

  • Rahul B.: It may be, possibly, only a major enabler or catalyst in such a transformation that does require the related technology intervention, but often, it works the best when we know what is that we are looking at than merely expecting IT to solve all the problems by the way of data-driven form of computing alone!
