Generating Business Requirements for Enterprise Architecture - Amsterdam Schiphol Airport Case

  1. 1. 1
  2. 2. Petra Wouter van Bartosz Gárdai der Loop Wojenka Special thanks to our supervisors: Patrick van der Linden IT Architect at Schiphol Group Prof. Tom van EngersLecturer of Information Science at the University of Amsterdam Drs. Toon AbcouwerLecturer of Information Science at the University of Amsterdam 2
  3. 3.  Introduction to our approach  Problem statement Research question Scope Direction of the study Analyzed methodologies The proposed process Conclusions Q&A 3
  4. 4.  Problem statement  Schiphol Airport wants to introduce Enterprise Architecture within their baggage handling system. They needed a general guide on how to translate business requirements into applications.  As the task and limited clearance to access detailed information about the Airports luggage system, the direction we’ve taken is abstract, and the result will probably be applicable to many other luggage handling scenarios. 4
  5. 5. We have decided that the question we will be answering during thisproject is as follows: „Literature review research on generating requirements for Enterprise Architecture in luggage handling scenarios.” 5
  6. 6.  Initial research scope was broader, but needed to be downsized of scheduling purposes Identification of the main business modeling standards and languages Take into consideration what Schiphol BH already uses Problems with acquiring sufficient knowledge on DYA 6
  7. 7. 1. Introduction to business aspects2. Analysis of available languages / business modeling standards3. Establish EA definitions used in scientific literature4. Analysis of available EA frameworks5. Case study analysis6. Proposed processes7. Final remarks 7
  8. 8. • “the fundamental conception of a system [the enterprise] in its environment embodied in its elements, their relationships to each other and to its environment, and the principles guiding its design and evolution (ISO, 2007).”  enterprise architecture is a formal description of a system, or a detailed plan of the system at component level to guide its implementation.  enterprise architecture is the structure of components, their inter-relationships, and the principles and guidelines governing their design and evolution over time (The Open Group, 2011) 8
  9. 9. • Framework types:  Generic EAF  Specific EAF  Classic EAF  Federated EAF• Comparing Frameworks:  Difficult, like apples and pears  Interviews  Based on goals, input and output 9
  10. 10. • Framework types:  Generic EAF  Specific EAF  Classic EAF  Federated EAF• Comparing Frameworks: • Final remark:  Difficult, like apples and  Organizations don’t use one pears standard. They take what  Interviews they need from different  Based on goals, input and frameworks and build their output own 10
  11. 11. • Zachman  The strength of the Zachman framework is that it provides a way to structure and model an enterprise or systems architecture• TOGAF  Provide a framework for design, evaluation and building of architectures for enterprises• DYA  Working with Enterprise Architecture 11
  12. 12. Formulated explicit business Build requirements based on Choose the viewpoints and strategy Adjust to your chosen the Goals and illustrate any analyse resulting Enterprise Architecture constraints and principles metamodels for Business-IT Framework that limit them. AlignmentCompile a set of Goals which Completed Framework of Illustrate additional drivers Verify with Stakeholders are driving the strategy Enterprise Architecture and assessments behind the motivation 12
  13. 13. • Previously written Strategy documents• Previously undertaken analysis  Porters 5 forces  SWOT  Others• Managment activities  Programme Management  Project Management Compile a set of Goals which are driving the strategy 13
  14. 14.  Usually long-term.  Goal is an end-state that a stakeholder needs to achieve.  Both i* and KAOS can be used, but ArchiMate 2.0 Business Motivation Modelling works just fine.Formulated explicit business Build requirements based on the Goals and illustrate any strategy constraints and principles that limit them . 14
  15. 15. • Requirements are a list of things needed to be achieved before the Enterprise Architecture/Organization can reach the previously derived Goals. Here we also tackle two different aspects of Requirements Engineering:  Restrictions, which is what doesn’t allow us to pursue the requirements.  Principles, which are normative properties which have to be taken into consideration.Compile a set of Goals which are Illustrate additional drivers and assessments driving the strategy behind the motivation 15
  16. 16. In order to boost the understanding of the context in which the Enterprise Architecture will be functioning, two additional elements will be described:  Drivers, are something that influences the EA/Organization.  Assessments, are outcomes of analyses of the Drivers.Build requirements based on the Goals and illustrate any Choose the viewpoints and analyse resulting constraints and principles that limit them . metamodels for Business-IT Alignment 16
  17. 17. Goal Stakeholder realization viewpoint viewpoint Goal Principles contribution viewpoint viewpoint Requirements Motivation realization viewpoint; viewpointIllustrate additional drivers and assessments Verify with Stakeholders behind the motivation 17
  18. 18. To fully understand if the metamodels satisfy the needs of the Stakeholders during this step we describe who and what are the relations between them and the elements of our motivation framework.Choose the viewpoints and analyse resulting Adjust to your chosen Enterprise metamodels for Business-IT Alignment Architecture Framework 18
  19. 19. • Based on case study analysis we concluded that ArchiMate 2 was an appropriate modeling tool for generating EAF. • The general frames of TOGAF and DYA were used to build the proposed Enterprise Architecture framework Completed Framework ofVerify with Stakeholders Enterprise Architecture 19
