Important Questions To Consider to Speed Up EA Tools Implementation

Q1 do you have a definition of your ea meta model
Q1. Do you have a definition of your EA meta model?

Most EA managers recommend first working out if the tool will accommodate your EA meta model (the definition and relationships of all the terms EA uses in their model that describes the design of the company’s operations), before being distracted by different features and functionality.

Q2 have will we get data into the tool
Q2. Have will we get data into the tool?

In most cases, and supported by most EA tools, an Excel import is available and very effective for this purpose. However it does assume that for your core architecture components you have the data available. Things like an excel document with your applications, business functions, relationships between components etc. Getting the data into the tool is usually not the problem, collecting the data, cleaning it etc. takes the most time.

Q3 what questions do you expect the tool to answer
Q3. What questions do you expect the tool to answer?

The range of questions an EA tool could answer is huge, it all depends on your priorities and meta-model scope. Having a clear definition of which questions you expect an EA tool to answer is a great accelerator.

Q4 how will the tool be used alongside other tools
Q4. How will the tool be used alongside other tools?

There might be some overlap with existing tools. It is important to properly position the EA tool for its intended purpose and how it will align with other tools. A prime example of this is a project & portfolio management tool.

Q5 who will maintain data inside the tool
Q5. Who will maintain data inside the tool?

The EA tool will only be useful if the data inside the repository is up-to-date and can be trusted. So having a clear understanding of who is maintaining the data is critical. Many EA initiatives die a slow death when after an initial implementation the data is not kept up-to-date.

Q6 who will use the ea tool
Q6. Who will use the EA tool

Last but not least is around tool adoption and having a clear approach to who will be using the EA tool (besides the obvious enterprise architects who else). That wider adoption approach should be done before deploying / implementing the tool. It is also related to all of the above. By defining the complete user base you essentially are setting scope for all of the above items as well.

We hope this presentation will help you a lot to understand various factors that should be considered to speed up EA Tools Implementation.
