Applying the EACOE and BACOE Architecture Methodologies to Analyze the Coronavirus COVID-19 Pandemic
March 25, 2020
Hosted by Sam Holcman
In this focused edition of the 2020’s Enterprise program, we will look at this Pandemic through the eyes of Enterprise and Business Architecture. A robust architecture methodology is a tool we can use to analyze things that are complex, and we are seeing significant complexity in this situation! But wait! If you are not a medical professional, why should you listen to this episode? Perhaps in this hour, we can provide some explicit thoughts and representations that can be provided to the medical community, to assist and aid their thought processes. We will apply out-of-the-medical-box thinking to this crisis situation. Let us take a brief time-out from the media driven hype and hysteria-focused analysis – whether on television or on the internet - and see if we can provide an additional frame of reference for those professionals diligently working to help us through this crisis. After all, the Enterprise we are analyzing is the largest and most complex in existence – us!
The 2020’s Enterprise with Sam Holcman

The 2020’s Enterprise is about sorting through the internet-driven advice madness that exists in business today. The great thing about the internet is that anyone can write anything about anything. The problem with the internet is that anyone can write anything about anything! Published practices are quite different than “best practices.” This program will provide practice-based insights in business transformation, organizational transformation and technology transformation, based on real world practices. Business executives, managers, practitioners, and staff are bombarded daily with utopian solutions that more often than not deliver significantly less than promised. This show is “no jargon,” just human communication. Be treated like a “customer” not a “user.” Our philosophy is to provide you with insights that can provide true value to organizations and individuals that face today’s and tomorrow’s competitive pressures, and provide a usable takeaway from each program.
