Editorial

January 25, 2007: This issue of TEN announces the initial availability of a series of online webcast courses covering methods for the Rapid Delivery of Enterprise Architecture. These online courses are based on the public and inhouse courses that I present throughout the world. They are drawn from my latest book: "Enterprise Architecture for integration: Rapid Delivery Methods and Technologies", which was published by Artech House, Norwood, MA on March 31, 2006.  You can read the review of the book by Karen Lopez of InfoAdvisors, Inc in Toronto, Canada in the April 2006 issue of TEN. This was published as: TEN#32. Links are also provided in that review so you can order the book online direct from the publisher now, if you wish.

If you do not want to receive future TEN mailings, please email unsubscribe@ies.aust.com with “Remove” and your email address in the Subject line.

RAPID DELIVERY OF ENTERPRISE ARCHITECTURE

*       Click on the Registration Link below each Section table of Course Segments that follow. More webcast videos will be progressively added for online registration from June 2007.

Section 1: Enterprise Architecture for Managers and IT

This section covers what is commonly referred to as Business Architecture. One of the biggest problems in achieving success in Enterprise Architecture is in getting active participation from business managers and business experts.  The segments in this section demonstrate that business knowledge is vital for success with EA. This knowledge is not an IT responsibility, but is the responsibility of business managers and their expert staff. IT staff also need to take a different approach in systems development, to build support systems that can be easily changed to support rapid business change.

This course section shows how business managers and their staff become actively involved, to drive the EA activity to success. Two White Papers can be downloaded for detailed reference after viewing the course segments in this section.

Section 2: Using Strategy Analysis to Define the Future

A key requirement for success with Business Architecture is a focus on the future based on Strategic Business Plans. Strategy Analysis is a rapid delivery method for Strategic Planning. The course segments in this section show how to use Strategy Analysis to develop business plans from scratch if they do not yet exist, or how to refine existing business plans. Strategy Analysis can also be used by IT staff to gain an detailed understanding of the future business needs for inclusion in Project Requirements Specifications. A Business Planning Questionnaire is provided as a catalyst to develop new Business Plans from scratch or to refine existing plans.

This course section shows how business managers and their staff can become actively involved in identifying future business needs, to drive Enterprise Architecture to success. A White Paper and a Business Planning Questionnaire can be downloaded for detailed reference after viewing the course segments in this section.

This section and the following course sections are expected to be available around June 2007. Their availability will be announced in the next issue of TEN.

Section 3: Strategic Modelling for Rapid Delivery of EA

One of the biggest problems in implementing Enterprise Architecture projects is the amount of detail that is defined. The course segments in this section show how to develop a high-level Strategic Model - as a conceptual Enterprise Model - from Business Plans that focus on the future. It shows how to analyze the Strategic Model, both manually and also automatically, to derive project plans from the data model. Segment 3-04 extends the discipline of data modeling with new methods that have not generally been seen or understood even by experienced data modeling practitioners. Similarly the identification in Segment 3-03 of reusable business activities and business processes from data models is not widely appreciated. These new methods enable priority reusable business processes to be identified and extracted from complex data models - along with the data that they need - as subprojects for rapid delivery into production in 3-month increments.

A White Paper and a Strategic Modelling Questionnaire can be downloaded for detailed reference after viewing the course segments in this section.

Section 4: Real-World Enterprise Architecture Projects

This section describes two real-world projects that applied the methods covered in the previous sections of this webcast course to develop and analyze a Strategic Model for a Regional Bank and also for a Government Agency. These projects documented this analysis in an Enterprise Architecture Portfolio Plan (EAPP) Report for each organization, for rapid delivery of priority processes into production as systems in 3-month increments.

A White Paper on each project can be downloaded for detailed reference after viewing the course segments in this section.
