Welcome to my new Gartner Blog!

It’s me, the Enterprise Architect formally know as “Mike The Architect” (a.k.a. Mike Walker)  is back on the blogging scene. While I will not be blogging on Mike The Architect any longer you can find my latest travels here.

I feel like I must be honest with you though. I wasn’t sure if I wanted to continue blogging. After all, I will be doing no shortage of writing as a Gartner Analyst. However, as I thought about blogging more and more, I still wanted that more direct interaction and openness with all of you. I hope you share my same level of passion as well.

Many of you that have followed me over the years know my blog, well. I will continue to push the envelope and provide insights that I see from my travels. One thing I do want to differently on this blog that I didn’t do so much of before is make this a more interactive conversation. I want to hear from you more. Let’s leverage the comments section and polling to get more of a grasp on what you are doing in your day to day practices.

For those of you that don’t know me and/or what I will be up to at Gartner, you can find my bio: [Mike J. Walker Analyst Bio] . The short version is I’m a Gartner Research Director within the Enterprise Architecture area focusing on Enterprise Information Architecture and disruptive trends like Smart Machines and Digital Business.

I look forward to interacting with you here on Gartner blogs. Remember, same Mike different URL.

Thoughts on Welcome to my new Gartner Blog!

  2. I just started the EA program at Penn State this fall. I also just started a new website where I will be talking more about my learning and understanding of EA. I want to focus more on how we can leverage EA within the African governments and agencies. I will definitely be following your thoughts, opinions and research findings.

    What advice can you render to someone who is just starting to go into that space?
