MODULE 7: Enterprise integration architecture Preview This module begins with an overview of the approach developed in BPR. Organizational change is brought about by identifying where the organization needs to be, performing an assessment of where it is today, then developing a transition plan to move the organization from current state to future state. The transition plan is normally identified during the final phases of the strategy discussions. It is at this point when organizations can take advantage of lessons learned from concurrent product development (CPD). CPD teaches us that many progression plans are not linear - they are iterative and phases can be conducted on a concurrent basis, thereby maintaining motivation and decreasing the time to complete them. Information architecture is a consolidated view of sub-architectures, similar to construction architectural plans that are composed of plans for electrical, heating, ventilating, air conditioning, insulation, and overall structure. In construction, each sub-system (architecture) complies with a given standard. In information technology, standards are important as well. However, there are many standards to select from. Certain selections may be biased and based on the background of those selecting solutions. Finally, this module introduces integration diagrams and explains how they can be used to identify redundancies and overlaps in applications, messaging, and services. Knowledge objectives z Apply the BPR approach to integration strategies and architectures. z Explain components or sub-systems of an integration architecture. z Explain the value of classifying and assessing integration technologies. z Explain the value of preparing an integration diagram. Skill competencies z Discuss the transition from integration strategy to development of the integration architecture. z Identify if an organization demonstrates a bias towards one set of integration tools over others. z Identify redundancies and/or overlaps in integration tools being used by an organization. z Help an organization to implement its strategy by understanding that a future state must be attainable, measurable, and driven by the need to increase competitive advantage.
