PRISM Architecture Framework: Was it the Very First Enterprise Architecture Framework?
Roberto Rivera, Global Architecture Capability Technical Leader, Hewlett-Packard, US
This presentation introduces a little known architecture framework and development method called the PRISM Architecture Framework. This framework was published to a very limited research sponsor audience in 1986. The objective of this presentation is to bring this milestone achievement into the public light, as it not only is likely to be the very first enterprise architecture framework, but the results of the PRISM team research has had a far reaching influence in how we do architecture work today and we didn't even know it.
-- PRISM Architecture Framework was the first architecture framework.
-- And curiously, even though it was not distributed widely, its influence has withstood the test of time, and has been widespread. It is just that we never knew, until now, where this influential architectural process and thinking had originated.
