"Is EA an magic bullet? No, i believe nothing is a magic bullet, a enterprise architect is like a conductor, but requires proper play by all the members of orchestra, so coopration by the whole organisation till the last level is required and without it EA will be a myth."
"A Enterprise Architect is like a city planner. A city planner sets building codes and plans common services such as roads and water. Enterprise Architects do the same thing for technology."
METAMIA is a free database of analogy and metaphor. Anyone can contribute or search. The subject matter can be anything. Science is popular, but poetry is encouraged. The goal is to integrate our fluid muses with the stark literalism of a relational database. Metamia is like a girdle for your muses, a cognitive girdle.
