Winter Wrap Up:
Highlights of the calls since January 2016.
Jan 15: Research Data: Issues around curation and portability of research data, such as from lab notebooks. Interest in working on a reference architecture on research data.
Jan 29: Signature Ready Examples: Review of some of the examples. E.g., the taxonomy from UM hasn't proven to be as useful as expected. Possible future topic: Capability Mapping using Troux by Planview. Interest in sharing capability maps as examples for our own work.
Feb 12: Enterprise Systems Guidance
Feb 26: Using Capabilities Maps for common discussion and decision points: Bringing a non-architect person to speak to us is great value. Fits with our goal of helping with communication and common understanding between architects and non-architects. Should we have more of these? General interest by the group. Challenge may be to get the outside person to be interested and comfortable with talking with us. How to encourage them. Possible topic for f2f: reaching across the aisle to the business side.
Mar 11: Practice of Architecture: Plan to have about 3 calls like this per year.
