  3. Which Enterprise Architecture artifact defines a set of entities that allow architectural concepts to be represented in a consistent and traceable manner?

  4. How can the various architectures at the local project level, and interdependencies and contents, be defined in the context of Enterprise Architecture?

  5. Are there any monitoring and evaluation processes to determine whether the application of EA in your organization is meeting its intended objectives?

  6. What are the software capabilities within your organization that influence or could potentially influence the implementation or evolution of an EA?

  7. How much easier would SOA be realized if the already stated legacy systems had been designed, anticipating exposure to broad reuse and re-assembly?

  8. What are the software capabilities within your organization that influence or could potentially influence the implementation or evolution of EA?

  9. How to fulfil architectural requirements of IT services in ITSM/ITIL using Enterprise Architecture (EA) in order to meet IT service objectives?

In using the Toolkit you will be better able to:

  • Diagnose Enterprise Architecture projects, initiatives, organizations, businesses and processes using accepted diagnostic standards and practices

Defining, designing, creating, and implementing a process to solve a business challenge or meet a business objective is the most valuable role; In EVERY company, organization and department.

Unless you are talking a one-time, single-use project within a business, there should be a process. Whether that process is managed and implemented by humans, AI, or a combination of the two, it needs to be designed by someone with a complex enough perspective to ask the right questions. Someone capable of asking the right questions and step back and say, 'What are we really trying to accomplish here? And is there a different way to look at it?'

This Toolkit empowers people to do just that - whether their title is entrepreneur, manager, consultant, (Vice-)President, CxO etc... - they are the people who rule the future. They are the person who asks the right questions to make Enterprise Architecture investments work better.

This Enterprise Architecture All-Inclusive Toolkit enables You to be that person.
