Enterprise architecture (EA) can be a confusing term. To supply a business executive with a working definition, you might list that EA comprises the business functions, capabilities, processes, roles, physical and organizational structure, data stores and flows, applications, platforms, hardware, and communication.

Pre-production has reportedly begun on the next Battlefield game, and will see the series revert to its familiar roots after changes introduced in Battlefield 2042 weren't well-received.
According to a report on XFire--who previously suggested a free-to-play mode may be in development--developer DICE has learned "valuable lessons" from Battlefield 2042 and will no longer be using that game as the new foundation for the long-running FPS franchise. One former developer who recently departed from DICE after the launch of Battlefield 2042 had suggested that the next Battlefield was at one point being designed to be even more of a "hero shooter" style of game.
It's claimed that recent playtest and feedback sessions were focused on the class system in Battlefield 2042, and this resulted in these plans being changed so that specialist roles will be tied more closely to classes. XFire also reported that the next Battlefield will be set in the modern-day or near future once again, as opposed to Battlefield 2042 which takes place several decades from now in a world where climate change has created a paradigm shift in society.
As for Battlefield 2042's future, EA and DICE are still required to release new specialists, modes, weapons, vehicles, and maps as part of its battle pass obligations, which is being handled by a dedicated team within DICE.
While the NFL’s deal with EA Sports and Madden NFL is as strong as ever, the league is slowly but surely beginning to diversify its portfolio of products, as it seeks to reach new audiences with the sport. And one example of that is a new deal inked between the NFL and sports technology firm StatusPRO, which will see it release a brand new first-person football experience on PSVR, presumably PSVR2.
While the project doesn’t have a name or screenshots yet, it’s described as an “annualised” title, which will see you take to the field from a first-person perspective. StatusPRO has previously worked with Microsoft’s augmented reality headset HoloLens to embed real-world players in virtual football scenarios, and the NFL believes this experience will help to make its virtual reality project that little bit more immersive.
In October, the team behind DIRT 5 claimed it was working on its “biggest and most ambitious game in over a decade”. Now, chatty industry observer Tom Henderson has published an article on Exputer, in which he claims that project is World Rally Championship. It would appear that DIRT Rally 3 has been scrapped, and has evolved into an officially licensed WRC title.
