In a few recent posts (“The IIBA is teaming up…what does this mean to you?” and “Is the new IIBA alliance a trustworthy one?“) I discussed the alliances that the IIBA has formed.
I see now, that the IIBA, itself, has published information on the rationale behind these alliances.along with the key outcomes.
Essentially, they describe what we already expected. That the there is definitely a benefit to these partnerships. (See below for the link to their page).
One alliance that caused considerable discussion was the one with Sparx. There was concern that partnering with a commercial company would lead to a bias to this one vendor. It’s interesting to read that one of the key outcomes (of the alliance with Sparx) is
“The potential integration of BABOK® Guide v3 with Sparx Systems Enterprise Architect (EA)“.
I’m curious what this will mean. What do you think?
