    Not sure to agree with the panel on Hadoop for the Enterprise Architect.

  • Enterprise Architecture?

    Interesting stuff about Hadoop. But something simply does not compute here: "Enterprise Architecture". None of the panelists seems to do what in some circles is increasingly recognized as an "Enterprise Architect" (think Ross, Weill and Robertson work). I think Infoq is taking same stance as CxOs that think that a person with SAP+JEE skills is also an Enterprise Architect because works for an "enterprise" and uses "enterprise software". What a pity.

    Hmm, interesting point; however, not to be splitting semantic hairs here, but the title of the presentation was not necessarily "Panel of Enterprise Architects Talks About Hadoop" -

    Rather, and at least the way i understood it, it was about a panel of experts talking about a point of particular interest to Enterprise Architects, perhaps;

    (but even there, we could argue that it is of more interest to Software Systems Architects, but that's another issue - sometimes / often we use terms synonymously that mean different things in different domains, but often that is just either a limitation of language, or of implied but not effective "context transitivity", or even a limitation of effective time/space we have available; so i suppose that we use verbal shortcuts, etc);

    Otherwise, yes - i understand your point. ;)
