IEA - Architecting Cloud by Intention, not by Accident
The IEA can guide enterprise transition to the new paradigm, which enables inter-enterprise architecture to be formed by intention instead of by accident from stove-piped implementations bounded inside each organization. It can make cloud computing and social media adoptions more effectively by identifying inter-business solutions and adapting to new inter-business relationships and dynamics by design and by the effective usage of social media.
The examples of IEA for cross-enterprise cloud service adoption include: Shopping Mall on Cloud for cross-retailers efforts and Library on Cloud for cross-libraries efforts. Also, it can guide the solutions for business domain oriented cloud. A public cloud implementation should be guided by an IEA, not other way around.
