Chapter 1 MANAGEMENT SUMMARY
This chapter introduces the Enterprise Architecture itself, by means of listing the top 10 Architecture Principles and the impact they have on the products, processes and projects of the company.
Hello dear reader,
Before you lies the Enterprise Architecture of SARAH (a demo company). An enterprise architecture is a conceptual blueprint of the organization. Meaning it is a set of views and visualizations of the current state and future state of the organization and the roadmap to get there.
This document is aimed at all managers, projects and project workers in the company. In fact this document is aimed at everyone that is helping with the change and transformation in the organization.
There are five benefits this Enterprise Architecture will realize year by year: 1. IT Cost Reduction and Rationalization 2. Business Process Improvement 3. Standardization 4. Strategy Realization 5. Innovation Enablement
Based on the strategy and the business model of SARAH the Enterprise Architecture can be summarized in 10 Architecture Concepts and Architecture Principles. By helping to implement these concepts and their principles, you will help to realize the 5 benefits of EA. And the better these concepts and principles are implemented, the sooner the organization will reach its future state and be more competitive (stronger), efficient (functional) and innovative (beautiful).

Chapter 2 Introduction

This chapter introduces the Enterprise Architecture Document. It says why this document was

1.1 Document Scope
Document Scope describes the context and the goals of this document in a narrative. Example:

Enterprise Architecture and Business Requirements This document describes the Enterprise Architecture of the demo company SARAH. This Enterprise Architecture (EA) satisfies the business requirements from the stakeholders as documented in the Business Requirements Document, , and summarized in chapter and implements the functionality and satisfies technical, operational and transitional requirements described in the Functional Specification, . Also summarized in Chapter

The goal of this Enterprise Architecture document is to define the products, processes, information flows, applications, data, technologies, technical products, and techniques necessary to develop and support the future state organization/company, and to ensure that the organization elements/components are compatible and comply with the enterprise-wide standards and direction defined by the Owner/Client and Architecture Board.

This document will also: Identify and explain the risks inherent in this Enterprise Architecture; Define baseline sizing, archiving and performance requirements; Identify the hardware and software specifications for the Development, Testing, QA and Production environments; Define procedures for both data and code migration among the environments.

The Document Scope narrative also provides an overview of the efforts conducted to understand the existing technical environment and IT strategic direction and to determine how the system’s proposed technical architecture fits into them.

Where does all the data comes from and how is it managed and provided?

Architecture Repository All the data, models, views and visualizations used in this document are stored in the companies Architecture Repository. This Architecture repository can be found on location:…

Architecture Dossier In this document you see fragments of and references to other architecture documents. These documents are all part of the architecture dossier of the company. The documents are created with the data, models, views and visualizations from the Architecture Repository. This Architecture Dossier can be found on location:…

Architecture Center For all stakeholders and projects in the company there is an Architecture Center on the companies intranet. It is a set of webpages that publish and provide the architecture visualizations and architecture documents that everyone should have access to. It is these documents that support decision making of stakeholders and guide the work done in the innovation projects.

This document will be managed and updated every years. On the Architecture Center you can find the current and previous versions of this document. NOTE: this document can classified, so it is not permitted to make (parts of) the contents publicly available or share it with people outside of the company.
