Description

Part II of the course The Practice of Enterprise Architecture focuses specifically on EA artifacts as the core elements of an EA practice. This part discusses the most tangible and “hard” aspects of an EA practice including specific physical documents constituting enterprise architecture, their typical informational contents and representation formats, development and usage as part of an EA practice, practical roles and purposes in the organizational context.

Part II consists of eight consecutive sections:

  • Section 8 (The CSVLOD Model of Enterprise Architecture) describes in detail the CSVLOD model of enterprise architecture defining six general types of EA artifacts: Considerations, Standards, Visions, Landscapes, Outlines and Designs

  • Section 9 (Considerations) discusses Considerations as a general type of EA artifacts and describes in detail popular narrow subtypes of Considerations including Principles, Policies, Conceptual Data Models, Analytical Reports and Direction Statements

  • Section 10 (Standards) discusses Standards as a general type of EA artifacts and describes in detail popular narrow subtypes of Standards including Technology Reference Models, Guidelines, Patterns, IT Principles and Logical Data Models

  • Section 11 (Visions) discusses Visions as a general type of EA artifacts and describes in detail popular narrow subtypes of Visions including Business Capability Models, Roadmaps, Target States, Value Chains and Context Diagrams

  • Section 12 (Landscapes) discusses Landscapes as a general type of EA artifacts and describes in detail popular narrow subtypes of Landscapes including Landscape Diagrams, Inventories, Enterprise System Portfolios and IT Roadmaps

  • Section 13 (Outlines) discusses Outlines as a general type of EA artifacts and describes in detail popular narrow subtypes of Outlines including Solution Overviews, Options Assessments and Initiative Proposals

  • Section 14 (Designs) discusses Designs as a general type of EA artifacts and describes in detail popular narrow subtypes of Designs including Solution Designs and Preliminary Solution Designs

  • Section 15 (The CSVLOD Model Revisited) revisits the CSVLOD model of enterprise architecture introduced earlier and provides an advanced discussion of some important aspects of this model including the continuous nature of the classification taxonomy, the mappings of specific EA artifacts and the known exceptions to the model
