In the "BA Strategy and Value" discussion elsewhere in the Business Architecture forum, this topic has arisen repeatedly. Reference has been made in one instance, as follows: "There is a vast body of knowledge that reaches across many of the white papers, OMG postings, and training material that is being delivered."
On the one hand, it's fair to say that this is exciting, because this news suggests that innovative thinking is being created and preserved that will forward the notion that business will benefit increasingly from the practice of Business Architecture.
On the other hand, the reality of relative inaccessibility to this knowledge base by some members of this forum suggests that there are policies in place that might actually be inhibiting the advancement of this worthy profession.
A couple of kickoff questions for this new discussion: Is there general agreement that access by members of this forum to "OMG white papers and postings" might, in the end, accelerate BA being better positioned to improve business? If so, is there any insurmountable barrier to that information being regularly exported from the BASIG database, and imported into the our wiki that is part this forum?
