  1. EA@QUT Presented by: Joe Dascoli Ian McDonald

  2. The Context • What is it • How QUT has approached it? • Some diagrams • People and process at the centre • Questions

  3. EA - What is it? • EA is as much about the purpose, structure, and functioning of medium and large enterprises as it is about the systems and technologies that support those enterprises • An Introduction to Enterprise Architecture, Scott A. Bernard

  4. Enterprise Architecture Teaching and learning Student life cycle Community service Research Business The processes, functions and partnerships/ relationships needed to do business - business functions, management processes Information Primary data source Primary data repository Supported by agreed business processes The policy, governance and stewardship around information Application The collection of current and planned applications that support the business/ information requirements - corporate systems, integration EAI, reporting BI, workflow, eCommerce, Portal technologies, CRM tools and technologies Technology – Oracle database and tools Hosts – Sun/Compaq Communications - standards Network - Internal & External Infrastructure

  10. Design the Solution – inferred from Architectural Principles 1 Responsible Officer – person/role responsible for the solution or system; could be any academic, research or administration staff member, or in some cases students

  11. Architecture components • Business directions – blueprint, high level plans, IT strategy • IT Governance process • Reviews opportunities • Reviews projects • Reviews contention for scarce resources • Directs effort to Blueprint/business goals and planned outcomes • PMF for project portfolio management • Connecting the IT leadership community • A change process • Visible planning – roadmaps – for each layer • Review realisation of benefits and intended outcomes

  12. Teaching and learning Student life cycle Community service Research Business QUT BluePrint, high level plans, IT Strategy, governance process, BSI and process reviews I T Governance Information The policy, governance and stewardship around information = data custodians, data quality groups, the set of principles Application Corporate systems register, associated integration Roadmaps – component architects/ technology custodians Infrastructure

  14. Change process • Change to aspects of current EA thinking is via • Change emerges via major IT projects and emerging technologies which may impact on various roadmaps • Regular meetings of the individual technical architects who have ownership of individual roadmaps review detail, impact and opportunity of possible change • Recommendation will go back to individual service owners regarding support or otherwise for particular options • Individual roadmap owners are then responsible for embedding agreed change in the next roadmap version • An example would be the decision to deploy MS Exchange as a substantial piece of the infrastructure baseline and the introduction of its particular technology protocols. • This approach to EA is probably best described as people-centric with sufficient attention to the traditional detail to enable the organisation to be agile in its approach to change. It is complimented by formal embedding of roles of system and information custodians in the mix of people responsibilities.

  32. Does it work? • Strengths – • Ownership by CIO • Commitment of people to individual layers of the framework • Lightweight approach and minimal bureaucracy • High level description that can be informed by emerging best practice • Accountability across organisation • No particular deep level organisational structure that can provide impediments to progress • Accommodates best-of-breed approach to IT • Weaknesses – • At times has to be reactive • Requires appropriately skilled individuals to make model work effectively

  33. CIO Comments • "QUT's institutional strategy at the highest level (the QUT Blueprint) mentions as one of five objectives the need to "integrate technology into our teaching, research, business/support functions and infrastructure".  The Information Technology Strategy 2007-2011 in support of this objective indicates our intention that we will be confirming an explicit enterprise architecture and processes for its use as a governance tool, and providing for its annual review and refresh." 

  34. CIO Comments • Further ... "this will be measured by the use of the enterprise architecture in QUT's IT governance processes. • That this is a leading strategy for the next few years is unsurprising.  Our information technology environment has grown more complex by the year, and the need to be explicit about our framework for development, and our conceptual design for our systems, services and technology is greater than ever“.
