Collaborative Enterprise Architecture: Enriching EA with by Stefan Bente

By Stefan Bente

Ever-changing enterprise wishes have caused huge businesses to reconsider their firm IT. this present day, companies needs to enable interplay with their buyers, companions, and staff at extra contact issues and at a intensity by no means inspiration formerly. whilst, speedy advances in details applied sciences, like enterprise digitization, cloud computing, and internet 2.0, call for basic alterations within the firms' administration practices. those alterations have a drastic influence not just on IT and company, but additionally on regulations, techniques, and folks. Many businesses accordingly embark on enterprise-wide transformation projects. The position of firm structure (EA) is to architect and supervise this transformational trip. regrettably, cutting-edge EA is usually a ponderous and indifferent workout, with lots of the EA tasks failing to create noticeable effect. The companies want an EA that's agile and conscious of enterprise dynamics. Collaborative firm Architecture offers the cutting edge suggestions modern day companies require, expert via real-world studies and specialists' insights. This publication, in its first half, offers a scientific compendium of the present most sensible practices in EA, analyzes present methods of doing EA, and identifies its constraints and shortcomings. within the moment half, it leaves the crushed tracks of EA through introducing Lean, Agile, and firm 2.0 recommendations to the conventional EA equipment. This combined method of EA specializes in sensible facets, with thoughts derived from real-world reports. a very idea frightening and pragmatic advisor to control EA, Collaborative company Architecture successfully merges the long term orientated top-down strategy with pragmatic bottom-up pondering, and that method deals genuine suggestions to companies present process enterprise-wide switch.

  • Covers the most recent rising applied sciences affecting enterprise perform, together with digitization, cloud computing, agile software program improvement, and internet 2.0
  • Focuses at the sensible implementation of EAM instead of thought, with options in keeping with real-world case experiences
  • Addresses altering enterprise calls for and practices, together with company 2.0, open resource, international sourcing, and extra
  • Takes an leading edge method of EAM, merging regular top-down and pragmatic, bottom-up innovations, providing actual ideas to companies present process enterprise-wide alterations

Sample text

This chapter is our attempt to explore these truths. We’ll first look at the basic meaning of the term architecture. Then we will analyze what the term means when it’s applied to describing or managing a complex system such as an enterprise. The meaning of architecture There is a widely used definition of architecture for software-intensive systems in the ANSI/IEEE standard 1471-2000 (IEEE Computer Society, 2000): The fundamental organization of a system, embodied in its components, their relationships to each other and the environment, and the principles governing its design and evolution.

They invite different user groups to contribute their knowledge, assessment, and opinion. They imply a paradigm shift from a one-sided reliance on subject matter experts to the wisdom of crowds being aroused by open-mined knowledge sharing. Building Block 6, Participation in Transformation, for instance, shows a neat way to close the ubiquitous, awkward breach between enterprise architecture and implementation reality. The core tool is an architecture social software platform that is well integrated into other tools such as a configuration management database (CMDB) or dedicated EA tools.

How this book is structured Before delving into the details of our improvement building blocks, Part I of the book first explores in detail what EA is. ” attempts a thorough definition of the term. Based on the generic meaning of the term architecture, we analyze the various facets of applying the term to an enterprise context. In Chapter 3, “What Enterprise Architects Do: Core Activities of EA,” we provide an overview of an enterprise architect’s tasks, structured into eight main activities, EA-1 to EA-8.
