Then find your goals...
STEP 2: Set concrete goals, tasks, dates and numbers you can track
Featuring 997 new and updated case-based questions, organized into seven core areas of process design, this Self-Assessment will help you identify areas in which Enterprise Architecture planning improvements can be made.
Examples; 10 of the 997 standard requirements:
- Have the it security cost for all investments/projects been integrated in to the overall cost including (certification and accreditation/re-accreditation, system security plan, risk assessment, privacy impact assessment, configuration/patch management, security control testing and evaluation, and contingency planning/testing)?
- To what extent do you expect your organizations digital business strategy, including business models, designs and technology, to impact your organizations enterprise architecture discipline and deliverables over the next two years?
- Have any potential workforce planning issues such as employee development and training, staffing levels, filling skill gaps with contractors, and/or other activities associated with this project/investment been planned for?
- Are the results of the security categorization process for the information system consistent with the organizations enterprise architecture and commitment to protecting organizational mission/business processes?
- Outside the bounds of an individual project, architects may want to establish an enterprise architecture, including technology choices and development paradigms. Are you organizing around reuse?
- Who leads mapping the current and future plan or roadmap for your organizations IT strategy, including the extent to which current and future strategic themes align with applicable acquisitions?
- Does your organization leverage an enterprise architecture or reference architecture that is used to provide design principles for new applications and implementing infrastructure changes?
- For the purposes of supporting your API strategy, not all enterprise architectures are created equal. So, what defines good enterprise architecture from an API architects standpoint?
- Has your organization allocated security controls as system-specific, hybrid, or common controls consistent with the enterprise architecture and information security architecture?
- Are the enterprise architecture results in such a way documented that in a later stage other enterprise architects can easily understand and maintain that enterprise architecture?
