“Clive has developed a way to integrate the semantic models with the primitive process models. Strategically, this is important because if you align these with the goals of the business, you can determine what slivers need to be built first to implement Enterprise Architecture consistently in the enterprise.”

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.

Clive gained a Bachelor of Science degree in 1961 from the University of New South Wales in Sydney. He has been a Fellow of the Australian Computer Society since 1972 and was inducted into the Pearcey Hall of Fame of the ACS in Australia in 2008. He is the recipient of the iCMG 2015 Enterprise Architecture Hall of Fame Award from Sep 8, 2015. iCMG is a highly respected EA Education and Consulting organization, located in Indias
