Part 8 of 22: Can people download your Framework and call themselves Enterprise Architects?

How do you feel about people downloading your Framework and Calling themselves Enterprise Architects? In this 22 part Enterprise Architecture conversation, John Zachman and Sunil Dutt Jha discuss how John Zachman has been giving his Framework away for 40 years. The Zachman Framework IS Enterprise Architecture. Architecture is Architecture is Architecture. The Zachman Framework is the same as the Frameworks for Architecture of buildings, airplanes, computers, locomotives,etc., etc. with Enterprise names on the artifacts. You don't need Architecture to do Manufacturing, Manufacturing produces implementations. However, if you want integration, reusability, flexibility, interoperability, alignment and so on, those characteristics are derived from Engineering, not Manufacturing. If you cannot show the single-variable, Zachman Framework Primitive Models, you might be able to show an implementation but it is not going to be integrated, reusable, flexible, interoperable, aligned and so on because those characteristics are derived from Engineering and the implementation has not been engineered because there are no Zachman Framework Primitive Models.
