Example text

The every day life solution delivery projects are integrated to the EA since the solution architecture recommended design has the same components as the EA directly updating it as such. In practice, many attempts at developing the EA have ignored the people and organization or have been limited to just aspects of an EA: IT architecture, SOA, or business process engineering. Seldom a practical Enterprise Architecture development covers all layers and views. I have not had the chance to be part of such a complete EA development to be able to describe a full Case Study.

The GDS functions map to Porter's Value Chain (VC)[i] secondary functions while Operations (O) to the primary one, being further partitioned in Marketing and Planning, Operations and Delivery and Sales and Service Value Chains. The BRM model is a new concept developed during the EA practice. Nevertheless, for similar work in this field please consult the Value Reference Model[ii] of the Value Chain Group and the SCOR[iii] process reference model of the Supply Chain organization. IT people usually divide the architecture in Presentation, Business Logic and Data Services, since the dawn of software development, to which one might add a layer of interaction with partners and suppliers (B2B) and a common layer for utility like common services such as User Identification, Content Management, Request Routing, and Portal aggregation services.

Any system needs a blueprint to enable proper operation, maintenance and planning. Look at the blueprint of a car describing its components, interconnections and all key systems: electrical, fuel, engine...

The EA is commended because of the state of high entropy of the Enterprise, soaring complexity, poor availability and understanding, induced by years of patching, point solutions, silo operation, organic growth, mergers, outsourcing and an increasing divide between business and IT.
