The Simplest metamodel in the world ever!
Blog: EA Patterns
No need to thank me, don’t worry this metamodel will be released under GPL. You can refer to it as ‘The Thing MetaModel’.
1) Some of the most effective architecture diagrams I’ve seen have been created using powerpoint objects
2) The stakeholder community that either understands or cares about the difference between modelling an object as a platform service/information system service/logical technology/application component/physical technology/application component is so small and the semantic impact so tiny that its not something you should worry about if you wish to be efficient and effective.
3) Effective and efficient Enterprise Architects should Nevermind the metabollocks and focus on delivering tangible value into the organisations with which they work by focusing on communicating effectively with stakeholders. Communicating effectively with stakeholders is not predicated on successfully navigating a metamodel. Your stakeholders don’t give a fuck about a metamodel.
