Why do you need architecture?

In the case of civil engineering,  it is easy to depict the buildings and this will be a reference architecture for construction work.

Architecture framework?

  • An architecture framework is a tool which can be used for developing the broad range of different architecture.
  • It will describe a method for designing the information systems
  • In terms of building blocks, and for showing how the building blocks fit together
  • It should contain a set of tools to provide common vocabulary
  • Include a list of recommended standards ad compliance products that can be used to implement the building blocks

Architecture and understanding

For better architecture, you would need to understand the inter-relation between COBIT, TOGAF and ITIL, Prince2

COBIT:

 

IT governance, Risk, and Compliance (Direct)

  • It enables IT goals to business goals
  • Better alignment based on business focus
  • It provides view of what IT does that is understandable to management

TOGAF:

  • It provides a common sense, a practical, prudent and effective method of developing an IT architecture.
  • It helps to move from AS-IS to TO-BE state (keeps agility and profits intact)
  • If you don’t update, you will be spending money on wrong architecture
