  • 5. What is an Enterprise Architecture Framework? Big and slow, but powerful and strong. May lack the architecture to be flexible, agile and fast Information Governance Components Services Structures Infrastructure Technology Security Enterprise Architecture Framework Tools Process Standards Models Views Education
  • 6.
    • A framework encompasses standards, models, views, tools, processes and education.
    • Standards & Guidelines
      • Standard language to describe services, entities and processes.
      • Standard security definitions
      • Standard modeling language
      • Standard and guidelines for software development
    • Models
      • Current architecture model
      • Future state model
      • Desired or target model
      • Reference models
    Enterprise Architecture Framework (1)
  • 7.
    • Views: Variety of views onto architecture
    Enterprise Architecture Framework (2) Strictly Confidential Application: Services, data flows, functions, process flows Information: Conceptual, canonical, logical and physical entity views. Technology: Software, protocols, tools used across systems Infrastructure: Disk, CPU, Memory, Network maps Security: Provisioning, authentication, encryption, traceability Oracle MS SQL J2EE TIBCO EMS ASP JSP
  • 8. Enterprise Architecture Framework (3)
    • Tools
      • UML modelling
      • ERM modelling
      • Infrastructure mapping
    • Processes
      • Review and approval processes
      • Design authorities
      • Project guidance
    • Education
      • Mentoring to promote framework
      • Embedding of framework within projects
      • Training courses
  • 9. Global Pharma Research Enterprise Knowledge exchange LIMS Scientific knowledge bases InSilico science
  • 10. Challenges
  • 11. Framework design
    • Standards and Guidelines
      • Respect of existing standards
      • Integration of public domain standards
      • Satisfy enterprise standards
    • Models and Views
      • Agree reference models.
      • Agree standard modeling languages and notation.
    • Tools
      • Respect of existing tools.
      • Migration effort to new tools.
      • Satisfy enterprise standard tool set.
    • Effective Governance
      • Establishment of design authority and regional representation.
    • Education
      • Establish continuous framework training and education.
  • 12. Establishment of the Framework
    • Acceptance
      • Realization of benefits by relating the framework to scientific and business benefits.
      • Respect legacy architecture by demonstrating benefits of transition from current to future models.
      • Acceptance of difficult changes by scientific, business and informatics communities.
      • Identification of phases
        • Denial, Bargaining, Obstruction, Agreement, Acceptance
      • Respect of diversity to gain acceptance
        • Geography, distance, culture
    • Embedding
      • The framework becomes part of every decision makers thought process.
  • 13. A measurable effect
    • Demonstrate real-world effect
      • Immediate benefits
      • Long time benefits
      • Benefits for everyone
    • Metrics
      • Define the measure of ‘success’.
        • Overall employee satisfaction
        • Productivity improvements
        • Financial reduction of costs
    • Monitoring and advisory bodies
      • Establishment of effective control structures to steer all parties on the same course.
    App 1 App 2 App 3
  • 14. Pharma Research
    • Complex domains
      • Architects need to demonstrate knowledge of all scientific, business and informatics areas, and have expertise within several domains.
    • Rapidly changing science, technology and business
      • Flexibility to growth and change the framework with to respect changes in science, technology and business drivers.
    • Protection of intellectual property and regulatory requirements
      • Security and auditing of baked into the framework
      • The creation of obstructive but necessary restrictions on the exchange of intellectual property.
    • ROI
      • Demonstrate a clear business case for the required training and tools plus architectural definitions.
  • 15. Challenges – Example Banking
  • 16. Establishment Challenges Workforce Compensation Education Performance Recruitment Investment bank Retail bank Group PeopleSoft Apps Java Apps SaaS .NET Apps .NET Apps MS Office Apps PeopleSoft Apps Java Apps Java/Oracle Apps MS Office Apps Technology chosen by Cell experience and availability Cell driven delivery model defined by geography / division Functional domains play minor role
    • Splintered standards. No Framework.
    • Architecture driven by geographic/organisational structure
    • Varying acceptance of need for framework
    Architecture outside of decision process Architecture
  • 17. Solutions to Architecture Framework Challenges Investment bank Retail bank Group Functional domain driven delivery model.
    • Cells broken down through cross functional knowledge sharing. Cultural shift.
    • Common framework across department.
    • Architecture driven by domain and global needs.
    Workforce Compensation Education Performance Recruitment PeopleSoft Apps Java Apps SaaS .NET Apps .NET Apps MS Office Apps PeopleSoft Apps Java Apps Java/Oracle Apps MS Office Apps Technology chosen by best fit as defined by framework Architecture Architecture embedded in decision process. Design authority. Regional representation.
  • 18. Benefits
  • 19. Framework design
    • Standards and guidelines bring the following benefits
      • Reduce inefficient communication
      • Applications are comparable across domains
      • New joiners are productive quicker
    • Models and views bring the following benefits
      • Avoid information overload
      • Ensure we are heading in the ‘right’ direction
      • New joiners are productive quicker
    • A common tool set brings the following benefits
      • Encourage sharing and collaborative development
      • Minimize license and maintenance costs
      • New joiners are productive quicker
    • Effective governance and regional representation brings the following benefits
      • Ensure common agreement with the overall strategy.
      • Reduce unnecessary cost due to duplication of effort
      • Encourage reuse.
      • Identify collaboration points
     
  • 20. Establishment of the Framework and Measuring
    • Acceptance brings the following benefits
      • Take architecture out of abstract world and bring it into the real world
      • Understand the long term consequences and risks of existing behaviors.
      • Self introspection of what one really wants, rather than just fulfilling the immediate needs.
      • Growth of the social capital of the group.
    • Embedding brings the following benefits
      • Business and scientific drivers are balanced against the long term informatics drivers.
    • Measuring the real world effect brings the following benefits
      • Defines an economic driver by quantifying the ROI of the long term perspective
  • 21. Pharma Research
    • Complex domains
      • The informatics domain is demystified through a common language (the framework)
    • Rapidly changing science, technology and business
      • New concepts can be expressed and understood with greater ease through a flexible framework.
    • Baking security and auditing into the framework
      • Changes in regularity and intellectual property policies can be applied consistently across the entire enterprise informatics architecture.
