BA 101 - On Demand Module 1

Business Architecture is a holistic approach, representation and mindset which serves as a bridge between strategy and its successful execution within an organization and facilitates resolution of complex, enterprise problems.  It is a powerful way for the business to understand, improve and transform the organization and become more empowered to take control of its own destiny.  However, most organizations lack a well-articulated blueprint of their organization.  While everyone can see their small piece of the puzzle, no one has visibility into the enterprise as a whole. This constrains the organization’s collective ability to understand and communicate the root causes of critical issues and design holistic Business and IT solutions to address them.  It also reduces the speed and effectiveness with which they can react to customer demands, competition and other external forces.

Business Architecture / IT Architecture Alignment - On Demand Module 1

Most organizations lack a well-articulated blueprint of their business. While everyone can see their small piece of the puzzle, no one has visibility into the business as a whole. To address this lack of visibility, organizations must be able to visualize their business through formal business architecture. Yet, this is only one piece of the puzzle. Where there is no blueprint of a business, there is no corresponding blueprint of how the business relies on and is intertwined with IT architecture. As a result, it is difficult to determine the impact of key decisions, deploy cross-functional initiatives, optimize key resources and funding, and streamline communication and deployments between business and IT.

SOA 101 - On Demand Module 1

Cloud computing is a style of computing in which dynamically scalable and often virtualized resources are provided as a hosted service over the Internet - the cloud.  To take advantage of these services, organizations need to understand Service Oriented Architecture (SOA).  Recent tactical success in the utilization of Web services and the value proposition of Cloud Computing has brought renewed attention to a strategic commitment to SOA.  Early adopters have been investing in SOA for the past five years but now the development of more rigorous methodologies and technologies – and the maturing of standards – are making SOA accessible to everyone.  SOA is an example of a software architecture.  It can be defined as a software design and implementation methodology for creating loosely coupled, coarse-grained business services.  These business services can be independently developed and combined into higher value business processes.
