Report: Part-I (Case Study) GreenFoods is a mid-size grocery company. A couple of years ago GreenFoods decided to establish a full-fledged EA practice to accommodate with the growing problems around non-transparency of its
IT investments and poor business and IT alignment in general. To boost its EA initiative, the company decided to purchase a specialized software tool for enterprise architecture. For this purpose, its IT leaders studied the available offerings on the EA tool market, contacted most promising vendors, organized meetings with vendor representatives and listened to their presentations. As a result, GreenFoods had selected and acquired a rather powerful and expensive tool for enterprise architecture from a well-known vendor. Then, the company had installed and configured the tool, established a central repository for storing architectural information and sent its architecture team to a special training supplied by the tool vendor. After the training, architects had documented most areas of the organizational IT landscape and associated business processes in the EA repository and started to update this information to keep it current. Architects were also impressed with the modeling, visualization and analytical capabilities offered by their new EA tool.
However, GreenFoods’s CIO is sceptical towards the chosen EA tool. He believes that the company is only wasting money on the tool as it is essentially nothing more than a sophisticated repository of current-state information. Furthermore, the tool is used by only 4-5 people in the entire organization (all architects), does not facilitate informed decision-making among business stakeholders in any sense and does not contribute to achieving the original objectives of the EA initiative to improve business and IT alignment.
As a newly employed manager at GreenFoods; GreenFoods’s CIO has asked you to provide a report that addresses the following:
1. Discuss 5 reasons why the implementation of the EA tools at GreenFoods would make GreenFoods achieve its business goals. 2. In GreenFood EA practice, Strategic goals and Tactical goals are very important to them. Discuss the differences between Strategic goals and Tactical goals. Use Lecture notes and recommended textbook to answer this question
3. Discuss the five key difference between EA Tools and CMDBs(Configuration Management Databases) 4. Based on your lecture notes, discuss Design as an EA artifact and the roles implementation of design would play in EA practice at GreenFoods.
