Module 8: Technical and service integration architectures Preview This module explains how integration architectures are used to translate the integration strategy to a set of building codes and blueprints needed to begin the construction of integration across the enterprise and with external stakeholders. The integration architecture has a number of sub-architecture or plans, including service, technical, information, and process architectures. This is similar to the build operation of a vehicle where there are blueprints for each major category such as electrical, drive train, braking, and so forth. The construction of a building contains similar sub-plans. To a large degree, engineers have been using this technique for decades. It is referred to as systems engineering methods (SEM) . Over the last few years, the discipline of information technology is starting to adapt more basic engineering concepts and practices in the design and build of information systems. To continue with the automotive example, once the individual plans are completed: z agreed upon standards are in place z the parts are interoperable - the electrical system will function with the drive train and braking system as designed z part sourcing is in place with purchasing z costing is nearing completion It now becomes the task of a process engineer to translate the individual plans to the manufacturing operation. As you can imagine, the entire electrical system is manufactured at once. However, each system needs to be partially assembled during assembly. The integration architecture follows a similar methodology. In this module, you study a proactive approach to designing an architecture, called event-driven design. It is in this phase that accountants need to be involved. Finally, the use case diagram is introduced. This is a very powerful and easy-to-understand diagramming technique that attempts to reduce if not eliminate the technical jargon of information technology in describing what a system should do and what results can be expected once the integration environment is built.
