Architecture Vitality

In my last article I described a set of simple steps that begin the establishment of architecture. This article has a different focus - architecture vitality. Architecture vitality describes the (mostly informal) process by which new busines strategies and requirements (demands) are incorporated into the organisation. Through this process the architecture is enhanced and updated to facilitate their fulfilment, bringing in new solutions technologies and designs. These project developments need incorporation into the enterprise architecture - and the architecture governance process also needs to ensure that project innovations are appropriate and suitable for the enterprise architecture context.

Vitality is an active engagement process, but is not concerned specifically with the design and delivery of solutions in itself.
