My name is Dr. Stefan Malich and this site contains some personal web pages and information of my research work. I devote myself to the disciplines of enterprise and software architecture. I started my career as a freelance IT consultant and software developer. In 2001 I joined the global management consulting company Accenture. Within the consulting business I developed many architectures and led several architecture teams mainly in whole sale, the financial services and energy industry. In a sabbatical leave I was engaged at the Institute for Computer Science and Business Information Systems and worked on a personal PhD research project which dealt with pattern-based architectural knowledge. After finishing my doctoral thesis in 2006 I've focused on enterprise architectures and worked on several enterprise architecture projects within the financial services and energy industry. I led projects to build up or enhance enterprise architecture capabilities and gained explicit knowledge of the various aspects of an enterprise architecture capability (processes, models, governance, roles and functions, tools, maturity models etc.).
On the left navigation bar of this site you find a list of personal web pages and information about my research work.
Lately I'm looking into the change management aspects of the enterprise architecture management discipline (see my blog architecturalchangemanagement.com). This blog also contains a pretty large list with valuable links and sources covering enterprise and software architecture topics.
The site architecturalpatterns.com is the home page for my personal research project dealing with pattern-based architectural knowledge. Some pages are still under construction but you are able to download a tabularly version of my pattern-based knowledge base. Currently this knowledge base encompasses 34 architectural patterns from 3 pattern catalogs and their impact to a standardized quality model.
Well, there is extensive architectural knowledge to explore. Have fun! ;-)
