The information you’ll find in DoDAF Wizdom is based on knowledge accumulated over decades and is now applied to the DoDAF. Much of the material is taken directly from presentations made by the “Wizards” of Wizdom Systems, Inc. Additional material has been written specifically for this book, and is based on years of experience in both private and government industries. This book is intended to provide substance on the process and the practice of building enterprise architectures that will get you what you want.

"This book is an important primer for the language of DoD architecting, the DoD Architecture Framework (DoDAF)"

It meets three critical tests. First, it presents the language in context (rules and regulations of the DOD) and in specifics (the details of DODAF products). Second, by providing a minimalist methodology, it shows us how to use the language to think about the complex issues facing the DOD. Third, it digs into the mysteries of models – an important aspect of the architecting language – explaining both the role of models and the importance of creating “good” models.”

-Dan Appleton, CEO Dacom
