    • Enterprise Architecture Information Policy Council Apr 19, 2001
    • Why Enterprise Architecture?
      • Electronic government is fundamentally changing the way citizens interact with the government, both as consumers of government services and stakeholders in the affairs of state
    • Design Goals
      • Facilitate change
        • The primary design goal for information systems must be to enable rapid change in business processes and the applications and technical infrastructure that enable them.
      • Provide better interoperability of agency systems
      • Deploy advanced electronic government services
    • Enterprise Technical Architecture
      • A logically consistent set of principles, standards, and models that:
        • Are derived from business requirements
        • Guide the engineering of an organization’s information systems and technical infrastructure across various domains
    • Components of Technical Architecture
      • Conceptual Architecture - the top-level set of principles and standards that guide the domain architectures
      • Domain Architectures - Logical groupings of related technologies
        • e.g. application, network, data, middleware, groupware, security, accessibility
    • Business Drivers I
      • Appropriate government information and services will be accessible regardless of location, time, method of access and group (e.g. language, culture, age and ability)
      • Access to information and services will be authenticated to the degree required by specific information and services. Information will be protected to the level required both internally and externally.
      • Provide coherent and navigable access across multiple points of interaction for government information and services (I.e., “no wrong door”) spanning departments and other levels of government.
    • Business Drivers II
      • Government information and services will quickly respond to the client’s changing expectations
      • Government will reduce the total cost of ownership of IT investments though the elimination of duplicate infrastructures, support services, and leveraging economies of scale.
      • The government will increase attractiveness for business investment to build stronger local economies.
    • Minnesota Version
      • Start with existing Architecture Advisory Group and Architecture Working Group
      • Use shortcut process to display tangible progress
      • Use an existing template to develop a draft with small team from the Working Group
      • Get go-ahead from Advisory Group
      • Develop the conceptual and domain architectures with parallel teams.
    • Document Structure
    • Domain Structure
      • Purpose
      • Scope
      • Principles
      • Best Practices
      • Implementation Guidelines
      • Standards

    • Other Considerations
      • Operational focus of agency IT efforts
      • Impact on smaller agencies
      • Existing efforts, e.g.:
        • Common security infrastructure (PKI)
        • Northstar portal upgrades
        • Electronic Government Services collaborative
        • Recordkeeping Metadata study
    • Adoption and Implementation
      • Willingness of agencies to adhere to the architecture in future development:
        • Compelling perceived advantage
        • Substantial natural consequence
        • OT leadership
        • IPC sponsorship
    • Schedule
      • Drafting Committee - mid March
      • Working Group approval - Mid April
      • Advisory Group approval - late May
      • Domain architecture definitions - June-September
      • Architectural Reference, version 1 - October

    • Attributes of State Government
      • Lack of longevity and continuity in leadership
      • Lack of incentives to search for intra-agency or inter-agency savings
      • Historical lack of central leadership in statewide IT efforts
      • Perceived lack of understanding and support in the legislature for adequate resources
      • Concern about the ability to share data in an environment of much tighter privacy restrictions

    • Enterprise Architecture Process
    • Silo Processes & Applications
      • Applications optimized at program/department level
      • Theme: Empower the program director
      • IT optimized around each program area
    • What does it all mean?
      • Power corrupts;
      • All of the books in the world contain no more information than is broadcast as video in a single large American city in a single year. Not all bits have equal value. — Carl Sagan
      absolute power is sorta neat, though. — Anonymous
      • Data can be assembled into information .
      • Information is the currency of democracy. — Thomas Jefferson
      • Information can be used to create knowledge.
      • For knowledge, too, is itself power. — Francis Bacon There is no knowledge that is not power. — Ralph Waldo Emerson
      • All power to the people. — Eldridge Cleaver
    • Trends
      • Ubiquitous bandwidth
      • Intelligent devices
      • Information dependency
      • Digital economy with the Internet
      • Cost curves - technology down, talent up
      • Demand for rapid new and innovative services and access to them
    • Ad Hoc Integration
    • Question of the day:
      • Is the entire State government an Enterprise ?
