Description

The Zachman Framework for Enterprise Architecture, developed by John Zachman, is becoming the standard for defining the architectural representations of Data, Functions, Networks, People, Events and Motivation for building and managing complex enterprises. This 3 day seminar and workshop, Strategic Modelling for Enterprise Architecture, discusses the methodologies that are used to define and implement various cells of the Zachman Framework for Enterprise Architecture. In the workshop, attendees apply the methods learned to develop models that are a practical Enterprise Architecture for a real-life problem. Where possible, this is based on projects where delegates can apply their own business knowledge.
Learning Objectives
· What Methodologies are used to Implement Enterprise Architecture?
· How can Enterprise Architecture be used to identify Priority Areas?
· How can Business Experts work with IT Experts to deliver Priority Areas?
· How can Priority Areas be delivered as incremental 3-month Sub-Projects?
· How do these Methods work in a Practical Workshop Environment?
Prerequisites
This course assumes past attendance at seminars presented by John Zachman, or an equivalent understanding of the Zachman Framework for Enterprise Architecture.

Seminar Outline
WHY STRATEGIC MODELLING
• How Enterprise Engineering approaches enable Strategic Enterprise Architecture implementation for any Organisation: Government; Commercial or Defence
• Overview of Methodology and Project Phases for initial Definition of Models in the Zachman Framework for Enterprise Architecture
GOAL ANALYSIS FOR PLANNER AND OWNER
• How to Use the Goal Analysis method of Enterprise Engineering for Strategic, Tactical and Operational Business Planning
• How to define the Tactical Plans in Column 6 (WHY) from the Strategic Plans already identified, for use in Tactical Modelling and Business Rules definition

WORKSHOP: DEVELOPING THE INITIAL STRATEGIC MODEL
Case Study Problem showing how to use Strategic Planning statements from the Motivation (WHY) Column as a Catalyst in a Facilitated Session to develop an initial Strategic Model
WORKSHOP: IDENTIFYING MAJOR BUSINESS ACTIVITIES
• Case Study Problem to identify major Business Activities in the Function (HOW) column from the Data (WHAT) column, for the Planner and Owner (Rows 1-2)
• Determining Relative Management Priorities for Enterprise Architecture Implementation
REAL-WORLD CASE STUDIES
• Review of several real-world strategic modelling projects that have already been completed for Government and Commercial enterprises
• Discuss joint participation with Senior and middle-level Business Managers and IT staff, with Successes, Failures, Lessons Learned, and Criteria for Success
BUSINESS-DRIVEN DATA MAPPING
• Introduction to Business-Driven Data Mapping, used for models in the Data (WHAT) column
• How to develop Data Maps based on Planning Statements of the Enterprise
• Using Data Maps to transform the Data column from Owner to Designer perspectives
BUSINESS NORMALIZATION CONCEPTS
• Overview of the Business Normalization Method for identifying Data Model detail
• How to use Data Models to identify Business Activities, Processes and Systems as well as Networks, Organization and Events
• How to derive Project Plans directly from Data Models, for progressive Implementation of Enterprise Architecture in 3-month Sub-Project Incremental Deliveries
WORKSHOP: STRATEGIC ALIGNMENT
• Case Study Problem to align Strategic Planning statements from the Motivation column with related Data, Business Activities and Organization components in their respective columns, based on Methods and Tools used for Strategic Model Analysis
• Review of Statement Matrices used to align the Motivation column with relevant Models in the Data, Function, People, Network and Time columns
WORKSHOP: STRATEGIC MODEL ANALYSIS
• Case Study Problem to analyze the Strategic Model, using Strategic Analysis Methods and Tools for Enterprise Architecture Implementation and derivation of project plans
• Identification of separately-implementable priority Sub-Projects with 3-month Progressive Deliveries, to build Enterprise Architecture incrementally
WORKSHOP: TRANSFORMING DATA MODELS
• Case Study Problem using the Strategic Model and Strategic Alignment Matrices from earlier Sessions to expand the Strategic Model into initial Tactical Model Data Maps
ACTIVITY MODELLING AND ACTIVITY BASED COSTING
• Overview of the Activity Modelling Method for Enterprise Architecture Implementation
• Developing Activity Models in the Function (HOW) column, based on Priority Activities from the Strategic Data Model in the Data (WHAT) column
• Defining Activity Costs for the People (WHO) and Time (WHEN) columns, from the Owner and Designer Perspectives, using Activity Based Costing
DEVELOPING PROCESS MODELS, WORKFLOW AND INTERFACE DESIGN
• Process Modelling Methods used for the Function (HOW) column
• How to develop Process Models for Designers (Row 3), with Object-Oriented Logic defined for reusable Business Objects
• Development of Workflow Design and Human-Interface Design for the People (WHO) column
WORKSHOP: CASE STUDY REVIEW
• Reviews the Enterprise Architecture Implementation Methodologies and the Case Study problems and solutions developed in the Workshop
• Ensures that all delegates understand the role of each Method, Technique and Tool that is used for Enterprise Architecture Implementation
TOOLS AND TECHNIQUES FOR EA IMPLEMENTATION
• Overview of Implementation Tools for Enterprise Architecture, using Modelling Tools for Enterprise Engineering, Software Engineering and UML modeling methods
• Tools for Automatic Generation of Data Bases, XML and Program Code
• Enterprise Architecture Implementation using Enterprise Portals
• Reverse Engineering using XML for Enterprise Application Integration (EAI)
• The power of XML Web Services, and the Importance of defining Enterprise Metadata
• Implications of these Technologies for e-Business and e-Government integration
MANAGING ENTERPRISE ARCHITECTURE IMPLEMENTATION
• Enterprise Architecture Maintenance and Access Issues
• Guidelines for Repositories, Outsourcing and Auditing Support for Enterprise Architecture
• Skills-transfer Strategies for Implementing Enterprise Architecture
