2 2 The CEO Song Our technology is “bankrupt” Our core systems are stretched too thin They are overly complicated We struggle to make mandatory changes Improvements are expensive and slow One-off upgrades are band-aids On the whole, it gives us too little and costs too much! How do we attack the problem?

3 3 The CTO Refrain We must re-automate the back office Ensuring that it supports today’s and tomorrow’s business needs The changes must be cost-effective, high- performance, modern… We need to do it “soon” We won’t make a dent in earnings It will conform to an enterprise-wide “Architecture”

4 4 Second Chorus Our legacy systems are… –Insular…applications are not integrated –Out of touch with our marketing / sales initiatives –Complicated…some with 35+ years of tweaking –Expensive…the same IT ”capability” costs less every year –Untouchable…big changes to meet market needs—forget about it! –Loved…Tradition!…after 35 years, who doesn’t love their system? We face real business risks… –Customer “trust” erodes…not quick, fast, agile, or strong enough –A huge disaster strikes…no one has a total view –Opportunities escape…they all don’t just fall on your head –Costs escalate…eroding earnings and creating a bunker mentality –Defensive spending rises…costs a lot, does little to help –Ill prepared for the unknown…

5 5 The Big Question What is an architecture? How do we get one that fits our business?

6 6 The Entire Space The Back Office Comprehensive, but not very useful

7 7 Breaking It Down What you offer to your customers Your products and services The Back Office Business

8 8 The Back Office Breaking It Down Organized into business processes Function Business The work you do to deliver products/services

9 9 The Back Office Data Breaking It Down Represented as data entities Function Business The information you process

12 12 Revealing the Essentials The components of each layer and their arrangement (the architecture) needs to be clear The components of each layer need to be presented in understandable ways (taxonomies / hierarchies) The relationships between the components of different layers shows how needs will be fulfilled (mapping)
