Getting Started with Enterprise Architecture


Eric Jager is the author of Getting Started with Enterprise Architecture and a Certified Master Architect in the field of Enterprise Architecture. He is also a certified TOGAF® Enterprise Architecture Practitioner, Certified Business Architect® and ArchiMate® Practitioner. He is familiar with various architecture methodologies including, for example, the TOGAF Standard and the Zachman Framework™.

Eric has been practicing Enterprise Architecture for over 15 years and has extensive knowledge and experience in the development and application of Enterprise Architecture. He easily leverages architecture to translate business strategy into implementation.

The inspiration for his book Getting Started with Enterprise Architecture came from Eric’s work experience in organizations with regulatory functions in both the financial and healthcare industries, commercial service providers and several hospitals. There, he noticed that organizations continued to struggle with properly implementing architectural thinking and working with architecture. Eric set out to create an easy-to-understand and easy-to-implement architecture methodology. Using a self-created Enterprise Architecture Implementation Wheel, he developed an approach to implementing Enterprise Architecture that can be used by both novice and experienced architects.

Aside from being the author of Getting Started with Enterprise Architecture, Eric lectures on architecture at the Eindhoven University of Technology. He likes to focus on the practical and pragmatic application of Enterprise Architecture and writes about his daily experiences on his blog.
