Robertson-Dunn Beyond the B. These include the inability of the problem owner to properly describe a solution, the partitioning approach, and the decision-making processes in the context of uncertainty and change. It proposes that partitioning should be determined by the nature of the problem and potential solutions; that feedback loops should be implemented in order to control the process; that the architect should work across the business problem and solution spaces; and that decisions should be related to business value. Introduction development. The idea of architectural frameworks has In the IBM Systems Journal published BA framework been developed over intervening years and is now for information systems architecture[ by John Zachman [1]. The Zachman framework has to what has become known as enterprise architecture. These have been reviewed earlier, but John Zachman and others working at IBM on and compared elsewhere [6—8]. A more dynamic changes in technology and systems that have occurred in and problem-oriented approach to architecture and system that period and assessing the usefulness of the Zachman development, referred to as a problem-oriented system approach in light of current business problems, technologies, architecture POSA , is proposed, one that leans heavily on and systems. The Zachman framework was, at the time, a concepts and techniques from cybernetics and control theory.

Details of a number of themes John Zachman developed in his of these frameworks are available elsewhere [3—5], along framework.

How do you design and build it piece-by-piece such that it achieves its purpose without dissipating its value, raising its operating costs and inhibiting or prohibiting change by optimizing the pieces and sub-optimizing the object. It is a comprehensive, logical structure for descriptive representations i.

The Zachman Framework , the Owner ’ s Perspective & Security

The classification is holistic, complete and it is stable. The same classification on both axes has been employed by humanity for thousands of years.

It is not going to change. In its most elemental form, it is five perspectives: Owner, Designer, Builder bounded by Scope or, Strategist and Detail or, Implementor plus the instantiation, the Enterprise itself Anybody technical or non-technical can understand it. Any issues can be mapped against it to understand their primitive or elemental composition within the context of the Enterprise as a whole.

You can position issues in the context of the Enterprise and see a total range of alternatives.

He saw a similar approach and concluded that architectures exist on many levels and involves at least three perspectives: raw material or data , function of processes, and location or networks.

It provides a synoptic view of the models needed for enterprise architecture. Information Systems Architecture does not define in detail what the models should contain, it does not enforce the modeling language used for each model, and it does not propose a method for creating these models.

Sowa and John Zachman present the framework and its recent extensions and show how it can be formalized in the notation of conceptual graphs. The Who, When and Why columns were brought into public view, the notion of the four levels of metaframeworks and a depiction of integration associations across the perspectives were all outlined in the paper.

Keri Anderson Healey assisted by creating a model of the models the framework metamodel which was also included in the article. Framework for enterprise architecture[ edit ] In the paper "Concepts of the Framework for Enterprise Architecture" Zachman said that the framework should be referred to as a "Framework for Enterprise Architecture", and should have from the beginning.

The Framework for Enterprise Architecture: Background, Description and Utility by: John A. Zachman

In the early s however, according to Zachman, there was "little interest in the idea of Enterprise Reengineering or Enterprise Modeling and the use of formalisms and models was generally limited to some aspects of application development within the Information Systems community".

The Integrated Architecture Framework developed by Capgemini since The Zachman Framework provides the thirty-six necessary categories for completely describing anything; especially complex things like manufactured goods e.

The framework provides six different transformations of an abstract idea not increasing in detail, but transforming from six different perspectives.

This creates a holistic view of the environment, an important capability illustrated in the figure. An upper row or perspective does not necessarily have a more comprehensive understanding of the whole than a lower perspective.

Each row represents a distinct, unique perspective; however, the deliverables from each perspective must provide sufficient detail to define the solution at the level of perspective and must translate to the next lower row explicitly.


The constraints of each perspective are additive. Abstract The goal on Enterprise Architecture is to ensure that the product 'Company' is built or changed optimally, towards its goals and strategy.

Zachman Framework - Wikipedia

All components such as people, relations, processes, assets, systems and information must be aligned with those goals and strategy. Proper architecture allows the product being created the 'Company' to be the most efficient one. This text briefly describes the Zachman-Sowa framework. Context This text is based on the Zachman-Sowa model, one of the most used approaches for Enterprise Architecture.

It is normally called the Zachman model, which also refers to a previous version of the model written by John Zachman only. Architecture is the set of descriptive representations that are required in order to create or change an object1.

The principle is that definitions, plans and documentation are to be produced in a way that gaps are identified and excellence achieved. In the Zachman model, when discussing the representation of an organization, one must take into consideration multiple dimensions and perspectives. For example the planner or investor perspective allows understanding the scope and basic shape of the intended organization in order to get the appropriate investment and high level planning; The technology perspective allows identifying which tools, methods, approaches and materials will be used to create the intended structure, in order to have appropriate actions in place.
