31 Name of entity 31 Model-Driven Architecture for CIT Environment

32 Challenges in the EA Journey Establishing and institutionalising a new architecture language has helped but buy-in is difficult to sustain –Frequent changes in leaderships and operation managers –Value of EA models to the business and technical people is not always apparent –Ownership and update of the EA models remain a problem –EA tool limitations and integration gaps impede acceptance –New business analysis competency needed EA Tools are important but they also present problems due to their limitations

33 Name of entity 33 Lessons Learned in the EA Journey Governance –There is a risk of over-governance with too many forums –Submission of the EA views and the governance process need to be closely integrated with the system development process Architecture Modelling –The choice of the model notation is important. Some are more difficult to visualise and comprehend –Setting up a central modelling facility was a good way to bring the EA models together but the effort is seen as separate from the system development process

34 Name of entity 34 Benefits of the EA Efforts Despite the challenges, the following benefits were achieved: –The formal top-level management structure has ensured that there is executive support –The lower level governance structure put in place was able to facilitate the needed business-IT alignment –Achieved reuse of business processes resulting in cost savings –The common architecture language has helped to facilitate understanding across all stakeholders

35 Name of entity 35 Way Ahead Focusing on Enterprise Integration –Develop the Enterprise Data Reference Model –Develop the Service Reference Model –Develop the Performance Reference Model Strengthening the current EA Foundation –Improved Governance and Compliance Realising the Model-Driven Architecture approach in system developments
