Enterprise Architecture Information Policy Council

  1. 2. Enterprise Architecture Information Policy Council Apr 19, 2001
  2. 3. Why Enterprise Architecture? <ul><li>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 </li></ul>
  3. 4. Design Goals <ul><li>Facilitate change </li></ul><ul><ul><li>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. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Provide better interoperability of agency systems </li></ul><ul><li>Deploy advanced electronic government services </li></ul>
  4. 5. Enterprise Technical Architecture <ul><li>A logically consistent set of principles, standards, and models that: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Are derived from business requirements </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Guide the engineering of an organization’s information systems and technical infrastructure across various domains </li></ul></ul>
  5. 6. Components of Technical Architecture <ul><li>Conceptual Architecture - the top-level set of principles and standards that guide the domain architectures </li></ul><ul><li>Domain Architectures - Logical groupings of related technologies </li></ul><ul><ul><li>e.g. application, network, data, middleware, groupware, security, accessibility </li></ul></ul>
  6. 7. Business Drivers I <ul><li>Appropriate government information and services will be accessible regardless of location, time, method of access and group (e.g. language, culture, age and ability) </li></ul><ul><li>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. </li></ul><ul><li>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. </li></ul>
  7. 8. Business Drivers II <ul><li>Government information and services will quickly respond to the client’s changing expectations </li></ul><ul><li>Government will reduce the total cost of ownership of IT investments though the elimination of duplicate infrastructures, support services, and leveraging economies of scale. </li></ul><ul><li>The government will increase attractiveness for business investment to build stronger local economies. </li></ul>
  8. 9. Minnesota Version <ul><li>Start with existing Architecture Advisory Group and Architecture Working Group </li></ul><ul><li>Use shortcut process to display tangible progress </li></ul><ul><li>Use an existing template to develop a draft with small team from the Working Group </li></ul><ul><li>Get go-ahead from Advisory Group </li></ul><ul><li>Develop the conceptual and domain architectures with parallel teams. </li></ul>
  9. 10. Document Structure
  10. 11. Domain Structure <ul><li>Purpose </li></ul><ul><li>Scope </li></ul><ul><li>Principles </li></ul><ul><li>Best Practices </li></ul><ul><li>Implementation Guidelines </li></ul><ul><li>Standards </li></ul>

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

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

  20. 21. What does it all mean? <ul><li>Power corrupts; </li></ul><ul><li>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.
