By Adrian Grigoriu

The e-book makes an attempt to reply to many of the so much requested firm structure (EA) questions. what's the challenge and why EA is the answer? what's EA and what's an EA framework? that are the prevailing EA frameworks? what's SOA and enterprise structure? what's the BPM, Lean/Six Sigma, ERPs courting to EA?

A confirmed EA Framework, the linked metamodel, a singular unmarried web page commonly used company structure and company reference structure templates for company, humans association, IT functions and infrastructure layers are then supplied. The framework feels like a content material web page displaying the parts of an EA as placeholders, with out truly describing them, yet illustrating how they healthy into the entire. It allows navigation among company and the know-how layers imposing it. Navigation makes attainable know-how alignment to company operation, swap effect research and new enterprise versions implementation. The templates allow the pro to maneuver immediately into personal company description section instead of waste time at the EA framework determination.

The publication then indicates the right way to record and construct an company structure: structure rules, layout technique, most sensible practices, supply checklists, EA styles, improvement technique, tooling and repository, integration to the mundane resolution architectures, commonplace use instances, an easy EA improvement instance, the best way to degree the EA adulthood and cost added, what are the common EA triggers and roadblocks and the way to construct an EA perform, its governance, association, investment and site.
A approach specification and firm roadmapping procedure is illustrated so one can determine the long run states and the objective structure of the Enterprise.
The firm Architect activity description, choice standards, management abilities, politics of the activity, cultural blocks and the way to successfully promote EA are then discussed.

In essence, the publication describes all elements of why and the way to construct an company structure with emphasis at the indisputable fact that EA is greater than IT: EA is set documenting and aligning the firm company procedures, association and know-how to bring the strategic reason.

We realize this by documenting the current Enterprise and devising the desired future state; then, through a transformation program of simplification and re - engineering, we streamline the Enterprise to last and implement the target Enterprise in line with business strategy and objectives. EA delivers: • Streamlining (simplification of the enterprise unnecessary complexity) • Alignment (of Technology and Organization to Business Processes) • Agility (assembled of technology independent, modular services) • Strategic Planning (mapping of Business Strategy to technology roadmaps) and consists of • a set of blueprints for the Current, Transition and Target Enterprise states • the governance and delivery process • the business, organization and technology transition roadmaps • the EA program allocating EA implementation resources • and not least.

Since, in practice, very few project business cases are verified after the fact, I also proposed a table of key benefits indicators to measure the EA value returns after the implementation of an iteration. 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.

It attempts to solve the problem of why, what is, and how to build an Enterprise Architecture (EA). What are the issues? What is Enterprise Architecture? Why should an organization consider Enterprise Architecture? What are the trends and drivers of business change? What would be the benefits and the costs? What is the Return on Enterprise Architecture, Payback or NPV? Which are the factors inhibiting EA initiatives? And how to build the EA; good practices in the development of an Enterprise Architecture are discussed.
