Roadmaps! Frameworks! Architectures! Oh my! Roadmaps! Frameworks! Architectures! Oh my!  As the NetWeaver platform expands SAP’s offering, I’m compelled to think about what preceeds implementation … the architectural framework, it’s methods, and how it applies (or at least to me) in the real world.  So it’s here that I bring myself to consider methodologies like the RUP, TOGAF, Zachmann, and others.  In the next few entries, I’ll discuss  – one of the methodologies above – provide an overview – what they tout (value proposition) – my personal insights, and – my experiences with it  if I’m lucky, I’ll add tidbits of information I find from other sources as well.  (wish me luck!)

    It sounds like a very interesting series of blogs.

    Can you point to any literature on the subject of SAP’s ESA. I do have the Enterprise SOA book, both are there any articles on the topic.

    Good luck.
