  • Microsoft ® Office Visio ® Professional 2007 for IT Putting Visio into Practice: Enterprise Systems Architecture View Presenter: Date:
  • Enterprise Systems Architecture
    • Use Visio 2007 Professional to
    • Generate views of application architectures and flows to assist with:
      • Planning
      • Operations
      • Support
      • Maintenance
    • Display several graphical views of the relationships between IT resource components
      • Applications
      • Hardware
      • Other
  • Visio 2007 for IT Professionals
    • Visualize: Document / Design / Deploy / Manage
      • Quickly implement new services and moves/add/changes
      • Logical, Physical, Rack, Process, Asset diagrams and more
      • Resolve problems quickly with accurate documentation
      • Visualize security issues on network diagrams
      • Visio Toolbox Web site for more tools and best practices
    • Communicate: Share / Act / Collaborate / Educate
      • Share, review, publish critical information throughout enterprise
      • Enhanced SharePoint ® collaboration; view Visio in Outlook email
    • Explore: Analyze / Identify / Anticipate
      • Manage, maintain, display, and clarify complex information
      • ITIL, Data Graphics, Data Linking, AutoConnect, Color Themes
      • Multiple data views and drill-downs with Pivot Diagrams

      • Multiple data views and drill-downs with Pivot Diagrams
  • Keys to Successful Documentation
    • Managed process to fully document application flows
    • Link views through single data source
    • Use the right tools to support the documentation process
      • Diagramming and visualization
      • Application and data flows
      • Change request system
      • Collaboration system
  • Without Visio 2007 Professional
    • Issue: Application architecture flow is unclear
    • Difficult to get a clear view of
      • Software components for specific applications
      • Hardware that supports the software components
      • Interfaces and databases used by applications
    • Related flows are duplicated and out of synch
    • Diagrams drawn in applications not well suited to the need
      • Word
      • PowerPoint
      • Other drawing or illustration programs
  • Unconnected Diagrams Without Data Records are typically in a variety of unconnected formats Visio PowerPoint Other Word Excel
  • Without Visio 2007 Professional
    • Problems
    • Changes to an application can affect others
      • Data are not updated as expected
      • Reports become unreliable
      • Business operations may be jeopardized
    • Upgrades driven by changes not identified
      • Hardware and software updates may be required
      • Application may not work properly
      • Performance may deteriorate
      • Business operations may be jeopardized
  • With Visio 2007 Professional
    • Solution: Application flows and dependencies clearly documented and managed
    • Data Graphics display data clearly
      • Application
      • Software versions
      • Server configurations
      • Connections between objects
    • Pivot diagrams produce visual reports
    • Related flows hyperlinked as “drill downs”
    • Visual information refreshed from linked data
  • Connected Information Pivot View: Applications by Servers View Application Configurations Pivot View: Applications by Departments Link to central system database
  • Consolidate Application Views Hyperlink to other local and remote files Data Graphics show Application/Version and data bandwidth
  • With Visio 2007 Professional
    • Benefits
    • All application and architecture views linked to central system database
      • Generate a variety of useful views with little effort
      • Views reflect consistent data
    • Identify software and hardware dependencies
      • Required updates enable applications to work properly
      • Performance is optimized
      • Minimize impact of changes on business operations
    • Enable smoother implementation of new and upgraded applications
