Effective End-to-End Architecture (E2EA)


Effective End-to-End Architecture (E2EA)

Managing the Business with Architecture

E2EA-overview-imageHow can you assure that management direction which is based on the external landscape (and the ecosystem) leads to satisfying executional results? Will the organization achieve the desired improvement in performance? Will you get more than just a pile of documentation from analysts with no conclusions or recommendations? How to use the current emerging business architecture discipline help the situation?

Managers know that the relationships between various organization things (components) are critical to business’ performance. Management directs, allocates, and structures these components in ways to improve the organization’s execution and performance. Knowing these structured relationships between components (the ‘architecture’) helps drive business transformation, excellence and success today.

The E2EA approach provides a systematic roadmap to successful execution of organizational initiatives and projects. A formal approach assures that analytic techniques, properly applied, achieve a predictable and appropriate outcome. E2EA is compatible with currently available architecture and business analysis tools since it uses architectural content with analytical techniques to produce a more formal assessment of organizational impact. The roadmap increases the likelihood that the execution matches the management direction of the organization.

Management needs a firm understanding of how these external influencing factors impact the organization. The set of factors that influence the organization define its ‘Ecosystem’. Today, management has access to a number of emerging architecture disciplines if deployed (i.e., Business Architecture and Enterprise-IT focused- Architecture) to help re-define or re-structure the organization and/or the IT environment to achieve desired strategic goals.

The increasing trend towards the digital enterprise, executable strategic direction and business architecture are now a significant part of business management and planning. Some examples of architecture documentation and analytics tools used today are provided through demonstration to solidify your understanding of such implementations.
