Introduction Pros and Cons of the current development methodologies to support the Business and IT Agility, Business Architecture : "The missing link between the business strategy and the business architecture" (OMG), Connections between the Enterprise Architectures (TOGAF, Zachman), Business Architectures, BPM, IT and System Engineering Architectures. The "Goal-Driven" structures of the Business Motivation Model (business vision, goals, objectives, missions, strategies, tactics, business rules) and their relationships toward business processes, Refinement from the Enterprise Vision toward Business Processes, Steps to align IT to the evolutions of the business needs. Gaining Agility : From the Business to IT and System layers capitalizing on Capabilities Preparing the Enterprise and IT System Architectures to support changes : The Goal-Driven Structures from the Business to the IT System layers, The Backbone of the Service Architecture structured by capabilities and functions, How to model evolutions on goals, strategies and principles, How to propagate changes from business requirements toward IT components (examples are given on the presentation case study). Impact of the changes upon the Business Processes and Business Objects (Ressources) The BPM : Aligning business processes, responsibilities of their participants and business objects in coherence with strategic changes, Integration of these modifications into components of the business process cartography. Impacts on the IT System Components The Goal-Driven Structures of the System backbone to support changes, How to identify Services (or System functions) and Use Cases that have to be impacted by the changes, How to describe impacts of the change on the behaviours of Service (or System functions) and Use case components, Integration of these evolutions into the SOA (or System Functions) backbone to prepare test cases (examples given on the same case study). Conclusion Steps of an efficient Agile Enterprise / System Architecture Development Methodology, Traceability of the business requirements toward IT System structures in order to better govern them in face of change. Notice : The above training-mentoring sessions are conducted interactively using Business and IT Modeling tools in order to ensure good level of traceability between business and IT specifications. Concepts are explained first using case study examples and may then be followed by solution drafts to your own problems during or after these sessions. We also can accompany you by reviewing and validating your solutions depending on your needs. Minor changes may be brought to their contents depending on the evolutions of these standards and commercial strategies.

Module 1 – Introduction to MODAF (½Day) Explain the benefits of a model-based approach Describe how MODAF provides graphical and textual visualisations of the enterprise (Viewpoints) Describe how MODAF ensures coherence between views (M3 metamodel) Describe the MODAF Viewpoints Describe how MODAF Views combine to describe enterprise change requirements Describe the MODAF 6-step approach Module 2 – MODAF, Modelling the Enterprise (2 ½ Days) Describe how to scope an EA problem and develop an initial AV-1 Describe the purpose and structure of each of the MODAF Views Explain  how a MODAF-based architecture can: Describe the context of an enterprise Express operational capabilities and their metrics and map these to solution elements Express capability within an operational context and the processes that achieve the business or mission goal Describe elements of an enterprise from an SOA Viewpoint Describe how solution resources can be composed to realise capabilities or deliver services Describe the functional behaviour of solution resources Model system data and express how system level data exchange requirements can be mapped to operational information exchange requirements Specify system ports, the routing of port connections, protocols and hardware specifications Describe how architecture models can be enhanced using navigation views and dashboards
121026 Introduction to Enterprise Architectures 14 hours Objective This training course aims at helping attendees to understand the most used Enterprise Architectures and rules to follow up in their construction to succeed with an appropriate architecture scenario for their organisation. Thanks to the selection of appropriate architecture layers, components and traceability links that are to be established from the business layer to the technical layer, the resulting enterprise architecture framework allows you a good impact analysis in the face of evolutions of the business decisions and anticipates mutations of the corresponding information system components. Why Architecting the Enterprise? Introduction : Current issues in the Enterprise and IT governance Legacy Systems and evolution needs Business Architecture and Enterprise Architecture : similarities and differences The fundamentals Architecting the Enterprise : the principles Strategic Alignment Business and IT Repository Logical Architectures n-tiers Application technologies : ERP, SCM, webportail, Integration architectures and Services Architectures : EAI and ESB Service Oriented Architectures : Roles of the BPM and BAM Enterprise Architecture Strategies and Methodologies "As is" and "To be" system cartographies : How to determine the roadmap ? Structures to better align IT with the Strategies ? What is the approach ? What are links with the development processes ? Enterprise Architecture Content Framework Identifying the business functions of the enterprise Cartography of the actors and business functions Aligning business strategies Patterns to architecting the IT system Zones, squares and blocks Identifying Exchanges using services and events Modeling inter-block exchanges and data objects to support business process realizations Building the repository and data architectures The Master Data Management (MDM) Granularity Management Modeling Languages Definition of the meta-model and architecture rules Elaborate the Enterprise Architecture Repository Architecture Cartography Reference Layers Business, Functional, Application and Technical Layers Links between the Strategic and Business Views Traceability between the Business and Functional Views Traceability between the Functional and Application Views Bridges with the Technical View Contribution of an 'Enterprise Architecture' to create value Contribution to the business value Best Practices The Enterprise Architecture Roadmap Perspectives Tools Business Process and Cartography Management tools Presentation on a case study Notice: The above training-mentoring sessions are conducted interactively using Business Modeling tools in order to ensure good level of traceability between business specifications and their execution. Concepts are first explained using basic examples and are then followed by solution drafts to your own problems. After this session, we can accompany you by reviewing and validating your solutions depending on your needs.
