Part 1 of 22: Why is the Zachman Framework so misunderstood?

Why is the Zachman Framework so misunderstood? In this 22 part Enterprise Architecture conversation, John Zachman and Sunil Dutt Jha discuss why so many people misunderstand the Zachman Framework™. The Framework looks simple ... but it is somewhat paradoxical. It is an Ontology and as such, it is the foundation of a discipline for creating very complex objects, specifically, Enterprises. The Periodic Table is used as a metaphor. It looks simple but it requires 4 years of university study to become competent to function in the discipline of Chemical Engineering. Similarly, it takes study to become competent as an Enterprise Architect. The Framework Ontology is fundamental to this competency and simply glancing at the Framework graphic is not sufficient to become an expert. John A.
