Enterprise Architecture Enables Innovation: Melvin Greer, Lockheed Martin

Enterprise Architecture Enables Innovation: Melvin Greer, Lockheed Martin

Earlier this week, my good fried and NCOIC colleage, Melvin Greer was interviewed by Rutrell Yasin of Government Computer News. In the interview, Mel focused on the importantance of entrprise architecture as an innovation enabler.

” What I want to challenge EA practitioners to think about and to move toward is an environment where we use enterprise architecture not only for compliance to our chief information officer’s needs and to use it for alignment but [also] to drive EA as an enabler for innovation.”

As the director of Lockheed Martin Corporation’s SOA Competency Center, Melvin is focused on ensuring that the awareness and applicability of service-oriented architecture in increased in all of the company’s relevant government programs. In the article, Mel also address cloud computing and the use of trusted cloud services.

“We are focusing the enterprise architecture for advanced innovation, but we can optimize advanced capabilities across an entire set of business processes and minimize waste associated with deployment of IT resources. So this idea allows the enterprise architects to ensure that whatever services that are focused from an innovation capability — SOA, cloud, BPM, mobile or wireless, they all are sustainable and optimized as a business process.

I strongly recommend this article to you.  It will open your mind to the importance of this valuable function.
