EA Rediscovered – Solutions Architects

In this next podcast in the “EA Rediscovered” series we will address various organizational models for Solutions Architects.   Should they report directly to a centralized EA team, provisioned as needed to guide project designs?  Should they report directly to development group leaders and be permanently resident in those communities?

We are asked this question on an almost daily basis, mainly because there is no hard and fast rule.  And it always is asked as a binary choice, probably because people struggle with reconciling the pros and cons of each approach.  What if there is a better choice that features the best of both worlds and minimizes the cons?  Listen to this podcast where we discuss the options and introduce the idea of a hybrid organizational model.
