21st Century Enterprise Architcture


EA Management Principles
1.    Establish Executive Engagement in the Strategy, Value and Investment.

·        Enterprise begins to realize 21st century information age capability

·        Raise the bar for Enterprise integration and alignment through EA

·        No more silos created or reinforced by systems application projects

·        Reset how project management success is measured (asset value of investment)

2.    Improve IT Value Proposition; Architect Enterprise Assets

·       Task Enterprise Data Architects to deliver integration through shared Master Data

·        Task Data Governance to ensure pro-active and up-front Enterprise level data quality

·        Change Enterprise level infrastructure investment from expense and liability, to asset

·        Change Enterprise reusable asset investments accounting to Balance Sheet from Expense

·        Drive Architecture for Business asset value and capability; instead of technology solutions


3. Enable Business Change Agility With Assured Enterprise Quality

·        EA enables systemic change, at strategic, tactical and operational levels

·        Most Impacts are easily identified, bounded, limited in scope by design

·        Reusable Assets are designed to adapt to business change

·        Reusable Assets have already been tested multiple times and already deliver qualified results

·        Propagation of interfaces, data, and software which  create change difficulty is avoided

·        Without the correct asset architecture, agile software development creates a quagmire and is a liability and expense generator, creating cumulative long term liabilities and certain risk.

4. Reset Enterprise Data Governance Capability

·              Data Governance pro-actively qualifies Enterprise Data Assets at design time.

·        Enterprise Standard Data Quality services and rules applied on all data capture

·        No disparate data to deal with, little propagation to deal with

·        Easier to manage security and privacy

·        Fewer Forms, Standard Fit, Standard Function

·        From business data in 100,000 plus tables and places, to a few hundred tables

·        Work systems are consistently defined, visible, aligned, and enabled by specific Information Systems
