Editor’s Corner

I am pleased to present you with this double-issue of JEA with eight solid articles.

The Architect in the Spotlight is Niels Rishede Terkelsen from the Danish Ministry of Science, Innovation, and Higher Education.

Eetu Niemi investigates what a variety of EA stakeholders think about quality attributes for Enterprise Architecture processes. John Chi-Zong Wu presents the Complex Adaptive Architecture Method to architect an organic enterprise. Janne J. Korhonen and Jouko Poutanen propose that architectural work in an enterprise be divided into three distinct yet interlinked architectures: Technical, Socio-Technical, and Ecosystemic. Brian H. Cameron and Eric McMillan present two surveybased research studies: one about valuation and metrics in Enterprise Architecture, and one about trends in Enterprise Architecture frameworks.

I am also pleased to present you with not just one, but three, case studies. Through a case study, Thomas Mowbray and Taiwan Allen discuss how to extract value from integrated repository and best practice EA methods. Mark Dale uses a case study to discuss Enterprise Architecture implementation governance problems. In the third case study, Ahsan Rauf highlights how Dubai Customs decided on building a sound Enterprise Architecture to help them achieve their business goals.
