SATURN 2009 Speakers
John A. Zachman
John A. Zachman is the originator of the Framework for Enterprise Architecture that received broad acceptance around the world as a “periodic table” of enterprise models. He is also known for his early contributions to IBM’s information strategy methodology (Business Systems Planning) and executive team planning techniques (Intensive Planning). John is now the chief executive officer of his own education and consulting business, Zachman International. In addition, he is chairman of the board of Zachman Framework Associates, a worldwide consortium managing conformance to The Zachman Framework™ principles, and chief executive officer of the Zachman Institute for Framework Advancement (ZIFA), an organization dedicated to advancing the conceptual and implementation states of the art in enterprise architecture. He has focused on enterprise architecture since 1970 and written extensively on the subject. In 2003, he wrote The Zachman Framework for Enterprise Architecture: A Primer on Enterprise Engineering and Manufacturing.
Rebecca Wirfs-Brock, president of Wirfs-Brock Associates and IEEE Software's Design Columnist, is a well-known and respected object practitioner. She invented the way of thinking about objects known as Responsibility-Driven Design and is the lead author of Object Design: Roles, Responsibilities, and Collaborations (2003) and the classic Designing Object-Oriented Software (1990). Through her writing, teaching, consulting, and speaking she popularizes the use of informal techniques and thinking tools for architects, designers, and analysts. In addition to her books, Rebecca has written numerous articles, lectured and presented tutorials on analysis, design, development, process, and management topics. Most recently she has reviewed enterprise architectures and major designs, and developed courses on practical UML and developing and communicating software architecture. She mentors teams on design, object modeling, architecture, use case writing, meshing usage scenarios with use cases and agile user stories, and managing incremental, iterative object-technology projects. She practices what she teaches!
The Software Engineering Institute (SEI) is a federally funded research and development center sponsored by the U.S. Department of Defense and operated by Carnegie Mellon University.
