Author's Note: This column is a non-technical extract from Chapter 1 of my next book, titled: Enterprise Architecture for Enterprise Integration: Methods and Technologies for Business Integration and Technology Integration. This book is due for electronic publication in early 2004, with hard-copy publication expected later in 2004.

This month's column is a change of pace. Earlier columns have separately addressed concepts of enterprise architecture and also of extensible markup language (XML) and Web services for enterprise integration. Last month's and this month's column bridge these topics but are not technical. They discuss the use of enterprise architecture for business integration. They step back from technology to reflect on the evolution of the 21st century enterprise.
