The Principle Based Enterprise Architecture (PBEA) Method is a proven approach for implementing an enterprise-wide architecture practice in large- and medium-sized technology organizations. The method begins with a set of architecture objectives linked to concepts that matter to the business. It then lays out how to build technology platforms from components we call assets and how to manage those assets over time, through the calculation and management of technical debt. The PBEA method is a pragmatic approach to enterprise technology architecture which is based on the fundamental tenet that technology is never perfect, compromises must be made, and one of the most valuable functions an enterprise architecture group can provide for a company is a method for managing those compromises. We call the cost of these compromises "technical debt". It is essentially the difference between what we should have spent on technology and what we did spend. The PBEA method grew from the experience of watching how large technology organizations function (or do not function as the case may be). You will learn about such essential topics as: Best practices for building, managing, and ultimately evolving an enterprise architecture. Defining principles and golden rules to guide the high-quality creation of the building blocks of products and platforms (assets). Calculating technical debt and assessing the business risk associated with carrying that debt. Identifying and managing the actions required to pay off technical debt and mitigate any associated business risk. If you have witnessed products and platforms 'collapsing under the burden of technical debt', then this book is for you. If you have seen technology organizations fail to learn from their mistakes, then this book is also for you. If you have been involved in the development of products where Version 2 required almost a rewrite of Version 1 or worked in technology organizations that spend an excessive portion of their budget on maintenance, then the PBEA method may provide both insight and benefit. Or if you are an enterprise architect and have witnessed one or more Enterprise Architecture functions get eliminated because they were seen as 'too ivory tower' and too distant from the customer, then this book will provide you with a concrete, fact-based approach for building an enterprise architecture function that is fully aligned with business objectives and that delivers real measurable benefit to the corporation.

Enterprises, from small to large, evolve continuously. As a result, their structures are transformed and extended continuously. Without some means of control, such changes are bound to lead to an overly complex, uncoordinated and heterogeneous environment that is hard to manage and hard to adapt to future changes. Enterprise architecture principles provide a means to direct transformations of enterprises. As a consequence, architecture principles should be seen as the cornerstones of any architecture. In this book, Greefhorst and Proper focus on the role of architecture principles. They provide both a theoretical and a practical perspective on architecture principles. The theoretical perspective involves a brief survey of the general concept of principle as well as an analysis of different flavors of principles. Architecture principles are regarded as a specific class of normative principles that direct the design of an enterprise, from the definition of its business to its supporting IT. The practical perspective on architecture principles is concerned with an approach to the formulation of architecture principles, as well as their actual use in organizations. To illustrate their use in practice, several real-life cases are discussed, an application of architecture principles in TOGAF is included, and a catalogue of example architecture principles is provided. With this broad coverage, the authors target students and researchers specializing in enterprise architecture or business information systems, as well as practitioners who want to understand the foundations underlying their practical daily work.

The 9th ACIS/IEEE International Conference on Computer Science and Information Science, held in Kaminoyama, Japan on August 18-20 is aimed at bringing together researchers and scientists, businessmen and entrepreneurs, teachers and students to discuss the numerous fields of computer science, and to share ideas and information in a meaningful way. This publication captures 18 of the conference’s most promising papers, and we impatiently await the important contributions that we know these authors will bring to the ?eld. In chapter 1, Taewan Gu et al. propose a method of software reliability estimation based on IEEE Std. 1633 which is adaptive in the face of frequent changes to software requirements, and show why the adaptive approach is necessary when software requirements are changed frequently through a case study. In chapter 2, Keisuke Matsuno et al. investigate the capacity of incremental learning in chaotic neural networks, varying both the refractory parameter and the learning parameter with network size. This approach is investigated through simulations, which ?nd that capacity can be increased in greater than direct proportion to size. In chapter 3, Hongwei Zeng and Huaikou Miao extend the classical labeled transition system models to make both abstraction and compositional reasoning applicable to deadlock detection for parallel composition of components, and propose a compositional abstraction re?nement approach.

This book is about IT architecture set against the background of the practical insights gained at HP (Hewlett-Packard) since 1986 and formalized in the HP methodology for IT Strategy and Architecture (ITSA). The important message is that architecture is used to solve problems or exploit opportunities and is not used for the sake of architecture. Core to this is the concept of a seamless chain of justification that unites stakeholders in defining, reinforcing, and supporting the single best fitting IT business solution. This book teaches the IT architecture practitioner how to align the different views and interests of these stakeholders into coherent IT architecture artifacts by permeating the business, functional, technical, and implementation perspectives.

Every enterprise architect faces similar problems when designing and governing the enterprise architecture of a medium to large enterprise. Design patterns are a well-established concept in software engineering, used to define universally applicable solution schemes. By applying this approach to enterprise architectures, recurring problems in the design and implementation of enterprise architectures can be solved over all layers, from the business layer to the application and data layer down to the technology layer. Inversini and Perroud describe patterns at the level of enterprise architecture, which they refer to as Enterprise Architecture Patterns. These patterns are motivated by recurring problems originating from both the business and the underlying application, or from data and technology architectures of an enterprise such as identity and access management or integration needs. The Enterprise Architecture Patterns help in planning the technological and organizational landscape of an enterprise and its information technology, and are easily embedded into frameworks such as TOGAF, Zachman or FEA. This book is aimed at enterprise architects, software architects, project leaders, business consultants and everyone concerned with questions of IT and enterprise architecture and provides them with a comprehensive catalogue of ready-to-use patterns as well as an extensive theoretical framework to define their own new patterns.
