Enterprise Architectures for Mid-Sized Companies
Rather than concentrating on the nuts-and-bolts which we are all so familiar

Architect for a mid-sized company, followed by a concrete example of how
this process effects the resulting system designs. The following areas will
be touched upon:
* What is an Enterprise Architecture and what is the role of the
* What management issues must the Architect deal with in order to be
* What key lessons have been learned?
* What architectureal principals seem to be most important?
* How does documentation play a central role?
* A basic design integrating the networking, UNIX and Windows
* A detailed example of one key aspect of the architecture: E-mail.
This example was chosen because it ties together many distributed
pieces into a single unified system based on architectural
standards. The emphasis will be on how the standards and the
design interact with one another.
