Question # 34

Scenario:

Please read this scenario prior to answering the Question

You have been appointed as a consultant to the Lead Enterprise Architect of an international agricultural company that exports bulbs, flowers and seeds worldwide. The company has its headquarters in the Netherlands, and has sales and distribution centers in over 30 countries worldwide. Several of these centers include administrative, manufacturing, and research facilities.

To achieve full integration of their research capabilities with their development centers located in various climate zones, the company wants to develop strong self-directed teams in each location. It also wants to define new business models that are profitable while reducing their impact on the environment. The management team is deeply committed to ensuring that the company is a world leader in socially responsible seed development with a business strategy that focuses on profitability through environmentally friendly operating processes.

The international operations of the company are subject to legal and regulatory requirements for each country where they operate. The production of genetically modified seeds has governmental controls that are strictly enforced and compliance is critical. Recently a competitor was heavily fined for violating the regulations in a country where it was developing pest-resistant seeds.

The Governing Board is concerned about the risks posed in this complex global environment, and as a result has approved the expenditure of resources to establish an Enterprise Architecture program. They have requested to be informed about the status of projects that could impact regulatory compliance. They also want to enable the corporate legal staff and auditors to analyze proposed architectures to ensure that they are within the legal guidelines for a given location. In addition, the research organization should be able to see that the architecture is appropriate for its needs.

TOGAF 9 has been mandated as the framework for the development and evolution of the Enterprise Architecture practice. The Preliminary Phase has been completed to establish the enterprise architecture capability for this project.

Refer to the Scenario

You have been asked to recommend an approach that would enable the development of an architecture that addresses the needs of the Governing Board, legal staff, auditors and the research organization.

Based on TOGAF 9, which of the following is the best answer?

A.

You recommend that each project architecture activity is developed using a consistent modeling approach that is uniform across all architecture projects. Each architecture should be defined based on this fixed set of models so that all concerned parties can examine the models to ensure that their issues and concerns have been addressed.

B.

You recommend that a special report be created for those groups that have sufficient power and level of interest. This report should summarize the key features of the architecture with respect to the particular location. Each of these reports should reflect the stakeholders1 requirements.

C.

You recommend that a set of models be created for each project architecture that can be used to ensure that the system will be compliant with the local regulations. Stakeholders should then view the models to verify that their concerns have been properly addressed.

D.

You recommend that a stakeholder map be developed. This will allow the architects to define groups of stakeholders that share common concerns. A set of views should be defined to address the concerns for each group of stakeholders. Architecture models should then be created for each view to address the stakeholders' concerns.

Question # 36

Scenario

Please read this scenario prior to answering the Question

You are serving as the Lead Architect for the enterprise architecture team at a multinational company. The company has grown rapidly by acquisition and has inherited numerous supply chain processes and related IT systems. Several supply chain processes have had problems related to the timing of purchases, which has led to excess inventory. The Vice President in charge of Supply Chain Management has made the decision to consolidate and reduce redundant processes and systems. The company will move to a "Just-in-time" supply chain management system so as to keep inventory costs low.

The TOGAF standard is used for internal Enterprise Architecture activities. This project is using an iterative approach for executing the Architecture Development Method (ADM).

At present, there are no particularly useful architectural assets in the Architecture Repository related to this initiative. All assets will need to be acquired, customized, or created.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 supply chain management processes or systems.

The architecture development project has completed Phase A and has started a number of iteration cycles to develop the Architecture. As a packaged application is being considered, the next iteration will include both the Business, Application and Data Architectures. Key stakeholder concerns that should be addressed by these architectures include:

1. What groups of people should be involved in supply chain management-related business processes?

2. What non-supply chain management applications will need to be integrated with the new supply chain management applications?

3. What data will need to be shared?

Refer to the Scenario

[Note: You may need to refer to Chapter 35 of 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 TOGAF, which of the following is the best answer?

A.

In the next iteration of Architecture development, you would describe the Baseline Business Architecture with a Value Chain diagram and a Baseline Business Process catalog. You would describe the Baseline Data Architecture with a Data diagram. You would describe the Baseline Application Architecture with an Environment and Location diagram.

B.

In the next iteration of Architecture development, you would describe the Target Business Architecture with an Organization/Actor catalog, a Business Service/Function catalog and Data Lifecycle diagrams. You would describe the Target Application Architecture with an Application Interaction matrix and Application Communications diagrams.

C.

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

D.

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

Question # 42

Scenario:

Please read this scenario prior to answering the question

Your role is that of Lead Enterprise Architect working at the headquarters of a fast food chain. The chain manages over 7500 restaurants across 33 countries. Each restaurant in the chain is an independently owned and operated franchise.

Many of the restaurants still use the first generation IT systems deployed over 10 years ago. The Chief Operating Officer (COO) of the chain has stated his concerns about the inefficiencies of the current systems and identified the need to change. He has defined a new strategic vision that will enhance the business including providing its franchisees new support services to help them address the increasing competition from coffee shops. This is part of the long-term commitment to enhance the brand image and increase revenue for the chain. He has also stated that he expects improved financial results by the end of the current fiscal year.

The changes will help provide the chain with improved products, including healthier alternatives in the menu, and more efficient operations. The addition of a corporate-wide data warehouse will provide analytics that will enable the marketing group to improve its ability to target advertising and new products to specific regions.

The chain has a mature Enterprise Architecture practice based in its headquarters and uses the TOGAF standard as the method and guiding framework. The CIO is the sponsor of the activity.

In planning this change the Chief Architect engaged the services of a well-known consulting firm that specializes in business strategy. An initial study has been conducted to identify the strategic changes needed to implement the COO’s vision. This recently completed with approval of a strategic architecture encompassing the entire chain, including detailed requirements and recommendations.

Based on the recommendation from the initial study, the decision has been taken for the chain to adopt a packaged suite of integrated application that is tailored to the needs of the franchise.

Refer to the scenario.

You have been asked by the Chief Architect to propose the best approach for architecture development to realize the COO’s vision.

Based on the TOGAF standard, which of the following is the best answer?

A.

You propose that the target architecture is defined first by going through the architecture definition phases (B-D). This is because the initial study identified the need to change. This will ensure that the change can be defined in a structured manner and address the requirements needed to realize the vision.

B.

You propose that the baseline Technology Architecture is defined first in order to assess current infrastructure capacity and capability. Then the focus should be on transition planning and architecture deployment. This will identify requirements to ensure that the projects are sequenced in an optimal fashion so as to realize the vision.

C.

You propose that the target architecture is defined first followed by transition planning. This is because the vision is well understood and the strategic architecture agreed. The target first approach will ensure that the current problems and inefficiencies of the baseline architecture are not carried forward, and that the proposed solution addresses the requirements identified in the initial study.

D.

You propose that the focus be placed on architecture definition, with emphasis on understanding the strategic change parameters. The requirements, drivers, issues and constraints for this engagement can then be identified. You would ensure that the target architecture addresses not functional requirements so as to ensure the target architecture is robust and secure.
