6 DoDAF V2.0 Viewpoints That Fit-the- Purpose Architecture viewpoints are composed of data that has been organized to facilitate understanding. 6 All Viewpoint Overarching aspects of architecture context that relate to all models Data and Information Viewpoint Articulate the data relationships and alignment structures in the architecture content Standards Viewpoint Articulate applicable Operational, Business, Technical, and Industry policy, standards, guidance, constraints, and forecasts Systems Viewpoint Articulate the legacy systems or independent systems, their composition, interconnectivity, and context providing for, or supporting, DoD functions Services Viewpoint Articulate the performers, activities, services, and their exchanges providing for, or supporting, DoD functions Operational Viewpoint Articulate operational scenarios, processes, activities & requirements Capability Viewpoint Articulate the capability requirement, delivery timing, and deployed capability Project Viewpoint Describes the relationships between operational and capability requirements and the various projects being implemented; Details dependencies between capability management and the Defense Acquisition System process.

8 Fit for Purpose DoDAF Architecture Descriptions

9 DoDAF V 2.0 Delivery DoDAF V2.0 is available at: nii/docs/DoDAF%20V2%20- %20Volume%201.pdf nii/docs/DoDAF%20V2%20- %20Volume%201.pdf

11 Motivation –US DoD and UK MOD interested in leveraging commercial standards for their Military Architecture Framework –Military Architecture Framework Tool Interoperability Key Goal for DoD, MOD, NATO –Formal MetaModel basis for the Military Architecture Framework Critical to Interoperability Objectives Proliferation of Military Architectural frameworks –DoDAF, MODAF, DNDAF, NAF, AGATE, ADOAF, MDAF, etc. Architecture Exchange - Why

13 Defense-Industry Challenge: Synchronization of DoDAF-UPDM Lifecycles 2. Industry Produces Develops Generic Modeling & Engineering Standards 3. Vendors Produce Product Versions Defense Domain Tools Just-In-Time 1.Governments Produce Baselines Develop, Evolve & Harmonize Defense Enterprise Architecture Frameworks For Acquisition Leverages Vendors Standards- Based Tools & Government Frameworks RFC

14 Architecture Models + Data = Architectural Description Fit-for-Purpose (FFP) Architecture Models Architectural Description Fit-for-Purpose describes an architecture that is appropriately focused and directly support customer needs or improve the overall process undergoing change. The models provide choices, based upon the decision-maker needs. Architecture Data + Metadata Things Individuals Types or classes of individuals or things Operational Model Example 14

15 DoDAF V2.0 Focus Focus: architecture DATA, not Products Results: Better ANALYSIS and Decisions. DoDAF V2.0 provides overarching architecture concepts, guidance, best practices, and methods to enable and facilitate architecture development. 15

16 Improving DoDs Architecture Guidance –DoDAF v2.0 –Federated Architecture Strategy Tools –DoD Architecture Registry System (DARS) –DoD IT Standards Registry (DISR) –GIG Technical Guidance (GTG) Tool Education and Training –DoD Architecture Training Effort All this is nothing without Certified Architects!

17 Architecture Training DKO Site URL -

18 DoD Architecture Education & Training DoD must identify Architects opportunities for Education & Training Identifies core KSAs Architects must have to be able to design, develop, and deliver DoD architectures that enable senior leader decision making and engineering design Analyze and define the types of architecture training at different levels of architecture DoD – IT Architects Career Path–Architects Series Define a certification requirement and process

19 White Paper: Outline Preface Introduction Purpose, Scope, and Approach Findings Recommended Way Ahead The DoD Architect Competency Framework –A culmination of input gathered through research, interviews, and workshops on the standard knowledge, skills, and abilities DoD Architects should obtain at varying levels of maturity.

20 DOD Architect Levels Level 1 Development Primary function is to develop architectures based on user requirements and input from subject matter experts Level 2 Analysis Primary function is to analyze architectures for the purposes of integration, interoperability, gap analysis, risk assessment, leveragability, compliance, and business decision making Level 3 Management Primary function is to lead and manage an architecture effort through its entire lifecycle, from development to execution/implementation White paper identifies the functions and associated KSAs for each level. These KSAs are independent of educational degree, working domain (contractor, civilian, military), or career title (GS level, rank, or role).

21 Roadmap to the Future Deliver an IT EA Education & Training Strategic Plan Deliver an architect careers plan Establish architecture specialties in Office of Personnel Management (OPM) Formalize a Architects Competency Framework Implement certification across architecture specialties Work with academic and educational institutions to enhance their curricula
