Introduction

Enterprise Portals provide integrated access, through a single log-on, to the resources that are needed by each individual in the enterprise to carry out the person's assigned job responsibilities. Knowledge resources are fully integrated for easy access to required data and information, as well as for access to relevant processes and workflows. These knowledge resources include and combine structured data for Business Intelligence, such as databases and Data Warehouses - with unstructured data, such as documents, reports, email, graphics, images, audio and video.

Clive Finkelstein is now retired. He was an internationally renowned consultant and instructor, and completed projects for Defense, Government and Commercial organizations throughout the world and in most industries. Many projects have involved the Zachman Framework for Enterprise Architecture, using the latest methods and technologies for rapid delivery of priority areas into implementation. These methods use Enterprise Engineering for rapid definition of Enterprise Architecture. His technology focus addresses Enterprise Integration technologies using XML, Enterprise Application Integration (EAI), Enterprise Portals, Web Services and Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) for Business Process Management (BPM) using XML-based BPM languages.

He provided training and consulting in all aspects of the Zachman Framework for Enterprise Architecture, with rapid delivery of priority areas using Enterprise Engineering. His application of these methods in large and medium Government, Defense and Commercial enterprises resulted in Business Transformation Enablement, so that business and IT managers and their staffs can plan for and achieve rapid business change. Enterprise Architecture provides a Governance Analysis Framework that supports Sarbanes-Oxley and other Governance Audit requirements. It provides direct support and linkage to Balanced Scorecard for Strategy-Focused Organizations, to ensure that IT systems and databases support defined Scorecard Measures, Strategy Maps and Governance requirements.
