Benefits of Enterprise Architecture to the Business Achievement of a company’s business strategy or of external drivers Without a full understanding of business, application and technical architectures, a business doesn’t know what it has or doesn’t have Business processes and information consistency EA unlocks the power of information whilst unifying information silos that inhibit business processes Identify processes, applications and data that need to be consistent Innovations Faster time-to-market If IT can introduce new technologies and functionalities faster, the organization can respond to competitive pressures faster These areas are most likely to be spotted when business and IT staff collaborate closely in the EA process More reliability and security, less risk EA provides clear traceability between business processes, data, user roles, applications and infrastructure © SAP 2008 / Page 6
  7. 7. Benefits of Enterprise Architecture to IT Lower IT costs Faster design and development due to standard designs and components IT procurement efficiencies due to economies of scale Better traceability of IT costs Greater understanding of the interrelated nature of business, application and infrastructure assets More manageable complexity Clear vision of As-Is and To-Be architecture and migration plan Comprehensive view of apps, software, infrastructure and their interrelatedness diminishes duplication and overlap Less IT risk Developing a managed transformation plan means IT is prepared to deliver new capabilities in a timely manner IT effort is aligned with the strategy and expectations set at the right level © SAP 2008 / Page 7

  11. 11. The need for Enterprise Architecture in Enterprise SOA Alignment between business and IT is the challenge facing SOA adopters Significant differences between an SOA landscape and a traditional IT landscape New points of stress and focus Technology can address many of these stress points ; but not all Key Risks Proliferation of misaligned services at inappropriate levels of granularity service sprawl Inability to do impact assessment and overspend on infrastructure poor service quality Multiple technology stacks that are costly to support and do not interoperate costly services “Islands of services” tied to implementation specifics Services are brittle and have high operational costs Inability for potential service consumers to identify services for re-use Duplicate services Effective management of SOA requires a more formalized understanding of the IT landscape with explicit links to the business it supports © SAP 2008 / Page 11
  12. 12. Putting It Together - How EA can help Enterprise SOA Provides a set of tools and techniques to link Business-Led SOA to Developer- Led SOA a robust and maintainable framework addresses the non-technical challenges associated with SOA adoption Defines structured traceable representations of business and technology links IT assets to the business they support Clear, maintainable and measurable Supports impact assessment and portfolio Business Processes, Business management Architecture Workflows, Transactions and Collaboration Provides a much richer context Programs Improves the ability to Business Strategy Projects manage change Data Data, Business Objects, Portfolio Requirements Application Systems, Services, Exchange Formats, Functional Use Cases Architecture Analysis Defines principles, Architecture Security and Privacy constraints, frameworks, patterns and standards Forms the basis of ongoing governance, Technology Architecture Software, Hardware, Server, OS, Network Ensures aligned services, interoperability and re-use © SAP 2008 / Page 12
