Question 1

Scenario:
Your role is consultant to the Lead Architect within a company that manufactures a variety of small electromechanical devices. The company is organized as independent operational divisions.
The company has a mature Enterprise Architecture practice and uses TOGAF standard for the basis of its architecture framework. In addition to the EA program, the company has a number of management frameworks in use, including business planning, portfolio/project management, and operations management. The EA program is sponsored by the CIO.
Each division has completed the Architecture Definition documentation required to tailor and configure the environment to meet its own specific manufacturing requirements.
The enterprise architects have analyzed the key corporate change attributes and implementation constraints. A consolidated gap analysis has been completed which has identified the gaps across the Business, Data, Application, and Technology domains. Based on the results of the gap analysis, the architects have reviewed the requirements, dependencies and interoperability requirements needed to integrate the new ERP environment into the existing environment. The architects have completed the Business Transformation Readiness Assessment started in Phase A. Based on all of these factors they have produced a risk assessment.
The implementation process is estimated to take four years. Because of the risks posed by the complexity of the current environment, a phased approach is needed to implement the target architectures. The implementation and Migration Plan v0 1, the draft Architecture Roadmap, and the Capability Assessment deliverables are now complete.
You have been asked to recommend the next steps to prepare the final Implementation and Migration Plan.
Based on TOGAF standard, which of the following is the best answer?

  • A. You would apply the Business Value Assessment Technique to prioritize the implementation projects and project increments. The assessment should focus on return on investment and performance evaluation criteria that can be used to monitor the progress of the architecture transformation. You would confirm the Transition Architecture phases using an Architecture Definition Increments Table to list the projects. You would then document the lessons learned and generate the final plan.
  • B. You would assess how the plan impacts the other frameworks in use in the organization. The plan should be coordinated with the business planning, portfolio/ project management and operations management frameworks. You would then assign a business value to each project, considering available resources and priorities for the projects. Finally, you would generate the Implementation and Migration Plan.
  • C. You would conduct a series of Compliance Assessments to ensure that the implementation team is implementing the architecture according to the contract. The Compliance Assessment should verify that the implementation team is using the proper development methodology. It should include deployment of monitoring tools and ensure that performance targets are being met. If they are not met, then changes to performance requirements should be identified and updated in the Implementation and Migration Plan.
  • D. You would place the strategic Architecture Definition and Transition Architectures under configuration control as part of the ongoing architecture development cycle. This will ensure that the architecture remains relevant and responsive to the needs of the enterprise. You would then produce an Implementation Governance Model to manage the lessons learned prior to finalizing the plan. You recommend that lessons learned be accepted by the Architecture Board as changes to the architecture without review.

Question 3

TP Banking is a strong financial institute with a well-known acquisition history with an internal IT department managing over 100 projects related to infrastructure and services.
The CIO has decided to create an Enterprise Architecture based on TOGAF 9 as reaction to the difficult market conditions. An Architecture Vision and a set of domain architectures were approved. The CIO is asking you (the Lead Architect) to define an Implementation and Migration Plan that realizes the vision already agreed with the stakeholders involved.
You are leading a group of domain architects and you are working with the corporate PMO, the business strategy team and service operations. You are meeting the stakeholders to clarify how you want to proceed with the Implementation and Migration Plan.
Choose one of the following answers

  • A. You propose to start collecting the existing deliverables describing the different domains in order to enable the Enterprise Architecture tram to integrate them with the support of the operation management. Every domain architect will then evaluate the impact on the projects already planned for the domain. The single revised plans will be integrated together and consolidated into a strategic implementation and migration strategy defining an IT roadmap.
  • B. You communicate the need for urgency. The projects already planned will be cancelled and the implementation of the new architecture vision will be set as first priority. A set of new projects will be defined to implement the new strategy. You will use the requirements from Phases B through D and define new projects for each one of the requirements. The use of defined interoperability architecture guidelines will then enable the project teams to work together and define a set of new point-to-point interfaces.
  • C. You describe the concept of Transition Architectures and clarify that the business value can be achieved by all the projects delivering their increments in a coordinated approach. Capability gaps and project dependencies are analyzed for each domain this will then enable the projects to be organized in work packages. You will then agree on the roadmap for the implementation and migration strategy meeting with all the key stakeholders.
  • D. You communicate the CIO's will to transform the corporation and then that he's seeking help from the domain architects to do that. The requirements are managed in order to enable every Architect to participate to the planning that will result in a detailed list of work activities with impact on the IT portfolio of projects. A five year Target Architecture will then be defined and a report will keep track of dependencies and factors assessment.

Question 4

Scenario: AutoComp Corporation AutoComp Corporation produces components for the Car industry. Driven by the global financial downturn they are looking to reduce IT costs. They believe there is a cost saving opportunity within IT but this is not quantified in terms of potential savings nor is there agreed target architecture.
Final decisions on the solutions are not yet fully agreed. They have completed their Vision Phase and first pass of the three architecture definition phases and now they want to finalize and plan their solutions. You are the Chief Architect from a consulting organization brought into review the work to date by AutoComp
Corporation and to make recommendations to the CIO and the board on this.
Which of the following answers best describes how TOGAF recommends in this context?

  • A. I would determine the business value of each solution, prioritize accordingly each set of solutions, conduct detailed Risk Assessment and Mitigation, do Compliance reviews and then implement the solutions. I would present my recommendations to the board for agreement. Once this is done, I would update the architectures reflecting any changes resulting from the board discussion.
  • B. I would after confirming Enterprise Change Attributes and constraints, do a Consolidated Gap Analysis then dependencies, then group and allocate the transitions. I would also assess Enterprise readiness and risks. Then I would also assess the business value of the solutions, do risk analysis with mitigation and then schedule the work products.
  • C. I would do a Consolidated Gap Analysis by considering then dependencies, then group and allocate the transitions. I would then look to produce artifacts that describe the recommended projects, the risk, issues and dependencies. This would also include transition architects to move us from current architecture to the recommended target architectures. I would present my recommendations to the board for agreement. Once this is done, I would update the architectures reflecting any changes resulting from the board discussion.
  • D. I would look at the corporate culture and attitude to change, understand the constraints such as cost and the required time horizons. I would then look at the architecture work to ensure it is complete and seek to address any gaps. I would review the functional requirements and ensure there are complete interoperability requirements. I would then validate any dependencies and risks. Then formulate an implementation and migration strategy identifies major work packages and the transition architecture required. Finally, once agreement is reached with the board I will create project charters and re-factor any changes needed from the board discussion into the architecture.

Question 5

Your role is that of the Lead Enterprise Architect at a multinational automotive corporation. The company is headquartered in Germany, and manufactures cars, trucks and buses. It has manufacturing plants across North America, South America, Europe and Asia. Each of these plants has been operating its own planning and production scheduling systems, as well as custom developed applications that drive the automated production equipment at each plant.
The company has an ongoing initiative to improve the efficiency of all of its production operations, and in particular to reduce its carbon footprint. During a recent exercise held for internal quality improvement, it was determined that a significant reduction in energy usage could be achieved by replacing the current planning and scheduling systems with a common Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system located in one central data center. This central system would provide support to each of the plants replacing the functionality in the existing systems. It would also eliminate the need for full data centers at each of the plant facilities.
The Enterprise Architecture department has been operating for several years and has mature, well-developed architecture governance and development processes that are based on the TOGAF standard. At a recent meeting, the Architecture Board approved a Request for Architecture Work sponsored by the global
CIO. The request covered the initial architectural investigations and the development of a comprehensive architecture to plan the transformation.
You have been asked to select the most appropriate recommendation to ensure that the team evaluated different approaches to the problem and clarifies the requirements for the architecture.
Based on the TOGAF standard, which of the following is the best answer?

  • A. The team should identify the individuals and groups within the organization who will contribute to the project, in order to understand who has concerns about the initiative. The team should then hold a series of interviews at each of the manufacturing plants using the business scenario technique. This will then enable them to identify and document the key high-level stakeholder requirements for the architecture.
  • B. The team should exercise due diligence and carefully research vendor literature and conduct a series of briefings with vendors that are on the current approved supplier list. Based on the findings from the research, the team should define a preliminary Architecture Vison. The team should then use that model to build concerns among the key stakeholders.
  • C. The team should perform a shallow architecture development iteration, developing Baseline and Target Architectures for each of the manufacturing plants. This should include development of a set of views corresponding to selected viewpoints that address key concerns of the stakeholders. A consolidated gap analysis between the architectures will then be used to validate the approach, and determine the capability increments needed to achieve the target state.
  • D. The team should utilize its approved supplier list, and conduct a pilot project that will enable those suppliers to demonstrate potential solutions that will address the concerns of the stakeholders. Based on the findings of that pilot project, a complete set or requirements will be developed that will drive the evolution of the architecture.

Question 6

Scenario You have been appointed as a consultant to the Chief Enterprise Architect of a multinational corporation. The corporation has over 100,000 employees and is organized into 10 divisions with operations in over 60 countries and products sold in over 125 countries. It has major research sites at 8 locations worldwide.
The operations of the corporation are subject to legal and regulatory requirements for each country where they operate. The production of its products have governmental controls that are strictly enforced and compliance is critical. Recently a competitor was heavily fined for violating the regulations in a country where it was conducting a trial for a new product.
The Enterprise Architecture group within the company has been engaged in an architecture development project to create a secure collaboration system that will allow researchers at its product development laboratories worldwide to share information about their clinical trials. This system will also connect with external partners.
The Enterprise Architecture group is a mature organization. They use the TOGAF ADM with extensions required to support the manufacturing practices and laboratory practices of their target markets. Due to the high sensitive nature of the information that is managed, special care was taken to ensure that each architecture domain included an examination of the security, regulatory and privacy issues that are relevant.
The Executive Vice President for Clinical Research in the sponsor of the Enterprise Architecture activity. She has stated that the changes to the Enterprise
Architecture for the new system will need to be rolled out on a geographic basis that will minimize disruptions to ongoing clinical trials. The work will need to be done in stages and rolled out in geographic regions.
You have been asked to recommend the approach to identify the work packages that will be included in the Transition Architecture(s).
Based on the TOGAF standard, which of the following is the best answer?

  • A. You would document the factors impacting the Implementation and Migration Plan and group the gaps identified in the domain architecture gap analysis results. For each gap, you would identify a proposed solution and classify it as a new development, purchased solution, or based on an existing product. You would group similar solutions together to form work packages, and identify dependencies between the work packages factoring in the clinical trial schedules. Finally, you would regroup the packages into a set of Capability increments scheduled into a series of Transition Architectures.
  • B. You would use a Consolidated Gaps, Solutions and Dependencies Matrix as a planning tool. For each gap, you would classify whether the solution is either a new development, purchased solution, or based on an existing product. You would group the similar solutions together to define the work packages. You would then regroup the work packages into a Set of Capability Increments to transition to the Target Architecture taking into account the schedule for clinical trials.
  • C. You would group the Solution Building Blocks from a Consolidated Gaps, Solutions and Dependencies Matrix into a set of work packages. Using the matrix as a planning tool, you would then regroup the work packages to account for dependencies. You would sequence the work packages into the Capability Increments needed to achieve the Target Architecture. You would schedule the rollout one region at a time. Finally, you would document the progression of the Enterprise Architecture using a state evolution table.
  • D. You would determine the set of Solution Building Blocks required by identifying which need to be developed and which need to be procured. You would eliminate any duplicate building blocks, and then group the remaining Solution Building Blocks together to create the work packages using a CRUD matrix. You would then rank the work packages in terms of cost, and select the most cost-effective options for inclusion in a series of Transition Architectures. Finally, you would schedule a sequential roll out of the work packages across the geographic regions.

Question 7

Scenario:
You are serving as the Chief Architect for a large, global commodities trading company which has been growing rapidly through a series of acquisitions. Each business is performing well in its markets. However, the lack of integration between headquarters and the business units has increasingly caused problems in the handling of customer and financial information. The inability to share information across businesses has resulted in lost opportunities to leverage the synergies that had been intended when the businesses were acquired. At present, each business unit maintains its own applications. Despite an earlier initiative to install a common application to manage customer, products, supplier, and inventory information, each business unit has different ways of defining each of these core elements and has customized the common application to the point where the ability to exchange information is difficult, costly, and error-prone. As a result, the company has made the decision to introduce a single enterprise-wide application to consolidate information from several applications that exist across the lines of business. The application will be used by all business units and accessed by suppliers through well defined interfaces.

As part of the process for establishing the Enterprise Architecture department, you are developing a set of architecture principles to guide the activities. You need to specify the best approach for this work. Based on TOGAF 9, which of the following is the best answer?

  • A. You gather information from credible industry sources in the commodities business. Based on that, you assess current trends and apply that to defining a set of principles that embody best practices. You select architecture principles that do not conflict with each other and that should be stable. You ensure that all the principles are realistic and avoid including principles that are obvious.
  • B. You examine the mission statements for the company and each of its businesses, together with the corporate value statements. Based on that, you define a set of principles and review with the CIO. When developing the principles you ensure that they actively promote the alignment of IT with the business strategies and initiatives of the company. You then seek the endorsement of the CIO and senior management.
  • C. You define a set of principles that support the preferred best practices embodied in the Enterprise Architecture department charter. You publish the principles on the corporate intranet to ensure widespread acceptance and compliance. You then schedule regular periodic Compliance Assessments with individual business units to check that they have made satisfactory progress toward meeting the objectives and conditions embodied in the principles.
  • D. You examine the mission statements for the company and each of its businesses, together with the corporate value statements. Based on that, you work with the Architecture Board to define the principles. When developing the principles you ensure that they actively promote the alignment of IT with the corporate business strategies. You then hold a series of review meetings with all the relevant stakeholders, including senior management, ensuring their support.
