Question # 4

You are serving as an Enterprise Architect at a large aerospace company. It designs, manufactures and sells civil and military aviation products worldwide and manufactures in multiple countries both inside and outside of the European Union. The company has grown rapidly by acquisition and has inherited numerous different procurement processes and related IT systems.

Recently, several procurement processes, within the civil aviation business, have had problems related to the timing of purchases, which has led to excess inventory. The Vice President in change of Supply Chain Management has made the decision to consolidate and reduce redundant procurement processes and systems. He has committed to the CEO that the business will move to a "Just-in-time" procurement system so as to keep inventory costs low.

The TOGAF standard is used for internal Enterprise Architecture activities. At presents, there are no architectural assets in the Architecture Repository related to this initiative. All assets will need to be acquired, customized, or created from scratch. The company prefers to implement commercial off the shelf package applications with little customization. The CIO, who is the project sponsor, has stated that she is not concerned about preserving the existing procurement processes or systems.

This project is using an iterative approach for executing the Architecture Development Method (ADM). The architecture development project has completed the

Architecure Vision Phase and has started a number of iteration cycles to develop the Architecture. As a packeged application is being considered, the next iteration will include both the Business and Application Architectures.

Stakeholder concerns that should be addressed by these architectures include:

1. What groups of people should be involved in procurement-related business processes?

2. What applications will these groups use once the architecture development is complete?

3. What non-procurement applications will need to be integrated with the new procurement applications?

4. What are the dependencies between the non-procurement and the new procurement applications?

[Note: You may need to refer to the Architectural Artifacts chapter, section 31.6 (located in Part IV) within the reference text in order to answer this question.]

You have been asked to identify the most appropriate catalogs, matrices, and diagrams to support the next iteration of Architecture development.

Based on the TOGAF Standard, Version 9.2, which of the following is the best answer?

A.

You would describe the Baseline Business Architecture with an Organization/Actor catalog, a Business Service/Function catalog, and a Data Entity/Business Function matrix. You would describe the Baseline Application Architecture with an Application Portfolio catalog and an Application/Function matrix.

B.

You would describe the Target Business Architecture with a Business Service/Function catalog, an Organization/Actor catalog, and Data Lifecycle diagrams. You would describe the Target Application Architecture with Application Communication diagrams, an Application Interaction matrix, and an Application Portfolio catalog.
