As companies develop highly complex IT and business environments to generate competitive edge, architecture governance practices are required to manage and control effectively enterprise architecture. Its role is to assure that architecture is compliant with regulatory requirements, set principles and organizational standards.
Enterprise should control how an organization utilizes technology in the research, development, and production of its goods and services because of its pervasiveness across the organizational spectrum. Architecture governance defines responsibilities of governance body and identifies services needed to create and manage efficiently architecture repository.
Enterprise architecture lets organization plan investments along with strategic and operative decisions with relevance to business and IT. It allows you to size and implement project efficiently based on reliable information and track changes in all architecture domains.
Developed architecture views provide clear understanding of the hardware and application environment, as well as the relationships and dependencies between them and business processes. They enable accurate impact analysis, business continuity planning and disaster recovery planning.
We help you define optimal repository structure, which should provide managers, architects and project managers with big picture of enterprise architecture as well as detailed architecture views. It should organize solutions, architecture models and building blocks used to address implementation decisions, focus on the critical strategic decisions, or aid in assessing the value and future impact of commonality and re-usability
Providing operational IT services to all users requires certain capabilities (infrastructure, application), for which people with the appropriate skill set and behavior are required.
Application architecture it’s description of the logical grouping of capabilities that manage the objects necessary to process information and support the enterprise’s objectives.
Cyber risks are growing and are changing rapidly. The advent of the digital world, and the inherent connectivity of people, devices and organizations, opens up a whole new playing field of vulnerabilities.
Within the project we identified current architectural state by building Enterprise Repository with the use of SAMU, award winning Enterprise Architecture Management tool. Several architecture views were developed and change management process for architecture was implemented.
First enterprise architecture capability maturity and current architecture governance process were assessed. Then we defined target state of architecture governance process in order to assure compliance, alignment with IT Governance processes and to improve architecture change management. As the final outcome map of enterprise architecture repository environment and procedure for repositories management was prepared.
