  • Take out all reference to BLM. Target should be to right not left. Reverse graphic.
  • Change Slide to Future versus past tense.
  • I changed # 1 since we don’t have a conceptual TAA to start out with. We do have base IEA documents that we can leverage CRV, CAP (see narrative). Refer to these as the basis for developing the criteria.
  • Changed “Service” to “Application”
  • CHANGE CRITERIA TO MATCH NARRATIVE DOCUMENT. CHANGE CLASSIFICATION
  • CHANGE CLASSIFICATION DIAGRAM. Develop sub-categories in Narrative for RED, YELLOW AND GREEN.
  • Excellent Slide
  • Interior Modernization Blueprint Approach

    4. 4. Take-Action Approach to Enterprise Architecture – Four Phases 1. Establish Methodology for Defining Modernization Blueprint. 2. Determine Scope of Assessment and Collect Data 3. Assess Alignment With FEA and DOI Architectures 4. Develop Tactical and Strategic Modernization Blueprints Department Enterprise Architecture Repository (DEAR) The Department Enterprise Architecture Repository (or DEAR) will be the system of record for critical EA information. Modernization blueprints – a related set of tactical and strategic modernization recommendations.
    5. 5. 1. Establish Conceptual Vision of Target Architecture - Criteria Business Assessment Criteria Data Assessment Criteria Technology Assessment Criteria Application Assessment Criteria The criteria is derived from IEA Conceptual Architecture Principles (CAP) & Common Requirements Vision (CRV) and is used to assess how well a system aligns with the target state. 1. Establish Methodology Modernization Blueprint 2. Determine Scope of Assessment and Collect Data 3. Assess Alignment With FEA and DOI Architectures 4. Develop Tactical and Strategic Modernization Blueprints Security Assessment Criteria Target Architecture
    6. 6. 2. Determine Scope of Assessment and Collect Data - Process Future Project 4 System 10 System 1 System 4 System 5 System 2 System 3 Future Project 2 System 7 System 8 System 9 Subject Matter Expert Interviews and Documentation Reviews Modernization Blueprint Interview Guide Validation / Reports / Findings System 6 Future Project 1 Future Project 3 Scope Document System Grouping Models of Systems Identified Systems Scope 1. Establish Methodology Modernization Blueprint 2. Determine Scope of Assessment and Collect Data 3. Assess Alignment With FEA and DOI Architectures 4. Develop Tactical and Strategic Modernization Blueprints
    7. 7. 2. Determine Scope of Assessment and Collect Data Field Data Collection Templates are used to collect the systems data These data collection templates: 1) standardize the data collected about systems, and 2) ensure uniform modeling of the systems across system groupings. System Architecture Template FEA Reference Model Templates 1. Establish Methodology Modernization Blueprint 2. Determine Scope of Assessment and Collect Data 3. Assess Alignment With FEA and DOI Architectures 4. Develop Tactical and Strategic Modernization Blueprints
    8. 8. 3. Assess Alignment with FEA and DOI Architectures - Process System Assessment Business Architecture Data Architecture Technology Architecture Application Architecture <ul><li>System’s capability for supporting associated Strategic goals and objectives as defined in DOI Strategic Plan. </li></ul><ul><li>Extent of stakeholders feedback for accomplishing performance measures associated with strategic goals, objectives and performance measures. </li></ul><ul><li>Lack of functional overlap with other systems as defined by DOI BRM. </li></ul><ul><li>System incorporates re-engineered/streamlined business processes (workflow) in an automated fashion that supporting DOI Strategic goals and objectives. </li></ul>PRM / BRM DRM SRM / CBA TRM <ul><li>Existence and documentation of data standards and Protocols </li></ul><ul><li>Relative maturity and accessibility of system's data storage and access methods </li></ul><ul><li>Relative overlap with data stored in other Interior systems . </li></ul><ul><li>Degree of architectural compliance with the Target Architecture. </li></ul><ul><li>Extent to which system design requirements are defined and documented </li></ul><ul><li>Extent to which systems interfaces are defined and documented </li></ul><ul><li>Extent to which high-level design or operational concepts are defined. </li></ul><ul><li>Extent of maximum use of shared, existing infrastructure components and services </li></ul><ul><li>Extent of compliance with Technology Reference Model standards, protocols and best practices. </li></ul>The modeling of DOI enterprise architecture elements and their relationship to assessment criteria facilitates “line of sight” analyses. Popkin SA is used to model the relationship between inputs, outputs, and outcomes. Model queries and analyses support the assessment process Systems are assessed against established criteria and are then classified Extent to which the system complies with current Security requirements and extent of progress through the C&A process. Security Architecture 1. Establish Methodology Modernization Blueprint 2. Determine Scope of Assessment and Collect Data 3. Assess Alignment With FEA and DOI Architectures 4. Develop Tactical and Strategic Modernization Blueprints
    9. 9. Well-defined criteria for assessing alignment Templates for uniform system scoring The System Grouping Analysis Template – Criteria, Scoring Against Criteria, and Visualization of System Scoring Results
    10. 10. The System Grouping Analysis Template – Assessment Quadrants Migration (Integrate) – Systems with relatively high business fit and relatively low technology fit where it is cost effective to upgrade the technology architecture/infrastructure to adhere to the TRM and conceptual TAA. Target – Systems with relatively high business and technology fit. Legacy - Systems still required by DOI that should be considered for integration with other systems or consolidation with target systems. The systems being consolidated will essentially be retired. These systems have relatively low business (e.g., alignment with DOI Strategic plan, CRV, CAP, process and data maturity) and/or technology fit (e.g., alignment with TRM, Conceptual TAA, etc.) Migration (Consolidate/Retire) – Systems with relatively high technology fit; however, the business fit is relatively low. These systems should be examined for possible retirement and/or consolidation of required functionality and data into Target Systems.

Develop Tactical and Strategic Modernization Blueprints DEAR Modernization blueprints (tactical and strategic modernization recommendations) are produced and should be managed in parallel .
