Building Block Relationships: A Model based on SAP Enterprise Architecture Framework

Summary :
In a nutshell, Enterprise Architecture (EA) Framework can be defined as a collection of methods & processes that enables an enterprise to transform from its current or “as-is” architecture to a strategic or “to-be” architecture. SAP has developed its own EA Framework with the traditional four domains (business, information, application & technology) and a set of building blocks for each of the domains. This paper is an attempt to better describe the relationship among all the building blocks of SAP EA Framework. Colleagues of mine that I’m also highly appreciate as professionals published the first enterprise architecture article on SDN. this article is uncovering parts of the framework that I didn’t have time to touch in my blog. worth reading!

    Good document!  I will tell you that I like the other building block relationship diagram better than the one in this document.  The other (4 quadrant) diagram seemed to have more elements (blocks) and they seemed to be aligned better to the domains than what is in this document.  This is just my personal opinion and others may have their own opinions about which is better.

    I have also used it to build a “Simplified Building Blocks” diagram to reduce the initial “shock” that less mature enterprise architecture efforts may experience with all of the different blocks and relationships.  Using a “walk before you run” approach.

    Pass on the “Good Job” to Sri Rajagopalan and Alain Dumas!  Very nice explaination of each of the building blocks.
