The May number of the Journal of Enterprise Architecture is now available to AEA members. This number contains a good blend of fine articles:

Book Review: Intersection: How Enterprise Design Bridges the Gap Between Business, Technology, and People

For me, this number is particularly special: It is the last number under my editorship. In the Editor’s Corner, I note:
I have decided to step down as Chief Editor of JEA, and this number will be the last number under my editorship. I have been serving the EA community over 100 peer-reviewed articles over the past three years, and now need to focus more on my own work. It’s been a privilege working with the contributing authors, the reviewers, the editorial board, and the AEA staff.
I decided to step down because I envisioned another direction for JEA than what the AEA management had in mind. I will leave it to AEA to talk about their plans for the future of JEA.
