1 NATO / EAPC Unclassified NATOs approach to Enterprise Architecture Integrated EA Conference February 2009 Frits Broekema Principal Scientist NATO C3 Agency

2 Outline Introduction NATO & NC3A Introduction NATO & NC3A Enterprise Architecture approach Enterprise Architecture approach Services Framework Services Framework Architecture means Architecture means NATO / EAPC Unclassified

3 NATO: Political & Military Alliance A Political organisation A Military organisation Diplomacy Cooperation Dialogue / Consensus Collective Defence Maintaining adequate military capabilities Crisis Response Operations Crisis Response Operations Safeguard Security of NATO members and ensure the stability of the Euro Atlantic Area Anti-terrorism Operations

4 NATO Consultation, Command & Control Agency (NC3A) Supporting full C4ISR life cycle: acting as a catalyst, a facilitator, a coherence agent and a delivery agent for many NATO systems and capabilities.

5 NATO Transformation Challenge 1.NATO Transformation: Streamlining the Strategic Commands NATO Response Forces Prague Capability Commitments 2.While recognizing: Coherence, Consensus & National sovereignty 3.NATO Network Enabled Capabilities (NNEC) NNEC is the ability of NATO to deliver precise and decisive military effects with greatly enhanced speed and accuracy as a result of closely linking sensors, decision makers and weapon systems

6 Key Architecture Principles Single set of architectural descriptions covering the entire NATO Enterprise, spanning different stages in time Single set of architectural descriptions covering the entire NATO Enterprise, spanning different stages in time Unambiguously defined information as the central subject Unambiguously defined information as the central subject Operational objectives as the common foundation for Architecture and Capability development Operational objectives as the common foundation for Architecture and Capability development Modular Production: Models to capture primitives and their relationships Modular Production: Models to capture primitives and their relationships Modular Descriptions: Services as the unifying paradigm Modular Descriptions: Services as the unifying paradigm Modular Presentation: NAF (and other) Views Modular Presentation: NAF (and other) Views Modular Delivery: Question-driven architecture products Modular Delivery: Question-driven architecture products NATO / EAPC Unclassified

7 Purpose of Enterprise Architecture in NATO The Overarching Architecture (OA), which may be thought of as NATOs Enterprise Architecture, provides consistent context for NATO and associated national architecture development. The Overarching Architecture (OA), which may be thought of as NATOs Enterprise Architecture, provides consistent context for NATO and associated national architecture development. OA will be linked to all subordinate architectures: this allows architecture to be a more effective tool to support systems development. OA will be linked to all subordinate architectures: this allows architecture to be a more effective tool to support systems development. OA focuses on the interfaces between systems. As a consequence services needs to be designed: NNEC Services Framework OA focuses on the interfaces between systems. As a consequence services needs to be designed: NNEC Services Framework NATO UNCLASSIFIED7

11 NATO Architecture Framework v3 NC3A is tasked by NATO C3 Board (Nations) to apply the NAF v3 to all its architectural activity, including the maintenance of CIS baselines, and to ensure that all architectural data is stored electronically in an architecture repository (NAR) such that it is available for re-use and export in accordance with the NATO Meta Model & Exchange Data Exchange Mechanism. Tasked NATO CIS Services Agency (NCSA) to utilize NAF v3 and extant NAR data when providing, operating and maintaining CIS services and for the maintenance of their CIS baselines NATO/EAPC UNCLASSIFIED

12 NAF v3 Principles Wider application of the architecture products, serving a broader audience (Ch 2) Wider application of the architecture products, serving a broader audience (Ch 2) Use of 7 types of views and constituting sub-views to communicate architecture descriptions (Ch 4) Use of 7 types of views and constituting sub-views to communicate architecture descriptions (Ch 4) Contents of the views and sub-views based on architecture elements developed using a methodological modeling approach (Ch 3) Contents of the views and sub-views based on architecture elements developed using a methodological modeling approach (Ch 3) Installation, use and maintenance of a NATO-wide repository for architecture data: NAR (Ch 5 & 6) Installation, use and maintenance of a NATO-wide repository for architecture data: NAR (Ch 5 & 6) Architecture elements stored in the NAR are defined by the NAF Meta-Model (NMM v1.0) (Ch 5) Architecture elements stored in the NAR are defined by the NAF Meta-Model (NMM v1.0) (Ch 5) Exchange of architecture data (elements and views) based on strictly defined specification and mechanism: ADEM (Ch 5 & 6) Exchange of architecture data (elements and views) based on strictly defined specification and mechanism: ADEM (Ch 5 & 6) The data in the NAR is methodology and tool agnostic The data in the NAR is methodology and tool agnostic Use of the NAR, NMM, ADEM does NOT presuppose or require any specific methodology or tool Use of the NAR, NMM, ADEM does NOT presuppose or require any specific methodology or tool NATO/EAPC UNCLASSIFIED
