These provide a central gateway to the information and knowledge resources of an enterprise on its Intranet and via the Internet. Enterprise Architecture, Enterprise Portals, Web Services, SOA and BPM will be key development methods and delivery technologies for most enterprises in the 21st century.

Clive writes a monthly online column on Enterprise Architecture Methods and Technologies for the BEye Network Online Magazine in the USA. He also publishes a free, quarterly technology newsletter via email: "The Enterprise Newsletter (TEN)".

"Clive's methodology is one of the few methodologies that I know that actually addresses some of the enterprise engineering design objectives that go far beyond just getting the code to run."
