Architecture Continuum Development
Developing the Architecture components according to the Architecture Development Plan. Evaluate Architecture Components and further collecting, registrating, relating and reporting on the coherence and consistency of the Enterprise Architecture and the Business Design components.
Problems and Solutions
In contemporary architecture approaches the conceptual level of architecture is often not available in which case components on the logical level and the physical level cannot be related to the components of the conceptual level. In the Enterprise Architects approach all components on the logical or business level are related to the conceptual level by architectural design and the physical components are related to the logical or business components by (transition delivery) design. This approach ensures that the number of components are limited and the content of all components are optimized.
Tools to support Architecture Continuum Development
To support the Architecture Continuum Development Enterprise Architects offers the following tools:
||Modeling and Managing all Arcitecture components in Archimate 3.0+|
||Design to Architecture: based on the different Transition Support tool designs it is possible to retrieve the designs in Archimate models to check the results of the developments against the PSA or generate the PEA|
||Storing the Designs from the Design Continuum into the Architecture Continuum|
Advantages of the Enterprise Architects approach
- Development of Strategic Architecture components
- Collecting Design Components and integration with the Business Architecture
- Collecting Design Components and integration with the Information and IT Architecture
- The SAFe™ Core Values are safeguarded and improved as follows
- Built-in Quality
- Program Execution
