An enterprise service bus provides key capabilities to support high data velocity at the operating core such as message routing, service brokering, mediation, and message processing including transformation and enrichment, operations management, as well as quality of service. Tom Graves has been an independent consultant for more than four decades, in business transformation, enterprise architecture and knowledge management. The relationships between primitives and composites is also important here, because the higher up we go in the layering of the Enterprise Canvas, the more we need to be working with primitives — or at least to understand the primitives that make up the core-composites. The process is defined by evaluating standardization and integration necessary in certain elements in the business model. You can use Leanpub to write, publish and sell your book or course as well!

What are Key Resources and Key Activities do we need, to make this happen? What I do find more difficult with the Canvas is explicit modeling of extended enterprise scenarios.
His clients in Europe, Australasia and the Americas cover a broad range of industries including small-business, banking, utilities, manufacturing, logistics, engineering, media, telecoms, research, defence and government. Or we can use Values, Policies, Events, Content, Trust across each of the supplier-side and customer-side transaction-flows, and cross-map the results to the extended-Zachman. Or, for that matter, the non-monetary aspects of a commercial organisation? Concludes by predicting the benefits expected from substantial re-engineering of an electronics products supply chain. What are the Key Activities through which we would do this? Enterprise architects can analyze the business processes, system linkages, and data necessary to support that aspect of the business model to lead to a choice for the operating model. Centralized management of these processes typically leverages a matrix approach to keep track of the business unit composition.
We go through the same iterative assessment: for example, how do we connect with the respective groupings — our Relations with them? The methodology was successfully developed and implemented in a Norwegian case company. This represents one of their business lines. The use of industrial dynamics modelling of real-life supply chains has only recently re-emerged from the shadows after a lengthy gestation period. If the relationship is damaged or destroyed, almost all value will be lost, even if the person is physically present. We then wander around the model, iteratively, looking at the implications of each option, its impacts on everything else. This article is aimed at providing a guidance and some help with a detailled set of mapping information based on Enterprise Architect versions 12.
The apparently very strong bias towards commercial organizations was one of the first things that struck me about the Canvas. This forms the basis of the relationships between players, that is the core of this layer. Assets are entities for which we are responsible. This article will present a concept for achieving the above mentioned key elements by introducing the Planning Studio, which will facilitate access to real time control information. However, these business units do leverage a common set of shared services that can be integrated into their specific environment.
In this sense, the operating model is the initial manifestation of the business model when it is deployed as it indicates how value is created, delivered and captured by the business units in the enterprise. Some of the objectives driving this architectural principle include: · Open world decision support for consumers · Real-time data insights · Complex event processing · Distributed enterprise collaboration and decision support Cloud First Design Cloud First Design is the principle to design all services with business modularity and cloud computing capability to maximize utility of network effects. We always start the mapping process with a suitable base-map — in this case, the Enterprise Canvas — which we use as a base and common cross-reference for all of the current sequence of sensemaking and model-development.

The aim is to decide how much to produce and deliver when, and how products and information should flow throughout the supply chain, as well as monitoring, performance measurement and event management. We now do another sideways move, to explore how we might use a modified version of the classic to assess the content and activities of each entity or service in scope.
Yet it s also simple enough to scribble on the back of a napkin - and engage all of our stakeholders in the enterprise-scale conversations we need. These connections can be made as part of a new venture or in response to market feedback or competition. Note also the point above about time: events occur in time, but are not actually part of time itself. In Part 3 of the Enterprise Architecture for Business Model Innovation Series, an enterprise operating model will be selected based on the business model design described in Part 2, Using Design Thinking to Design Business Models. The key is to view the interactions as multiple business lines supported by the organization.
The Enterprise Reengineering Methodology propose supporting tools and procedures for extensive mapping and modelling, partly standard mapping and modelling tools as well as elements developed specially for the methodology. These three schemes are combined and enhanced in the audit sheet, which defines 15 areas of operations excellence. The only true architectural requirement is the enterprise-vision and its associated core-values: everything else is just implementation, at varying levels of abstraction. It has been successfully applied in several enterprise reengineering projects to provide decision-makers with sufficient input to identify improvement targets and revise the current operations strategy. To me — and I fully accept that this is my perhaps-unfair opinion — what you seem to have done is forced the thinking to fit the framework, rather than adapting the framework to fit the thinking that the context itself requires.
This emphasis the need for a unified design of the control principles, and the planning and control model should be carefully defined in order to avoid conflicting interest. Establishing a set of architectural principles for enterprise architecture development underscores the important consideration that process is just as important as technology for creating world class solutions. The key is to understand and document the funding body as a separate business line critical to the business operation. One of the shortcomings of using a canvas is being able to communicate a whole business model in one page. As such, these platforms can also drive personalization for products and services and facilitate open world decision modeling in the consumer customer segments. First let me state I am a great admirer of your architectural adaptation of the canvas.
This can be done by focusing on real market demand and responsive driven supply chains. Mike Lachapelle Tom ,thank you for these extensive thoughts. The Canvas seems to adopt the traditional view that suppliers are strictly outside the enterprise and the traffic is one way. Full Text at Springer, may require registration or fee The operation of global supply chains is challenging due to the complexity in product and information flows, diversity in sites, localisation and processes and the information processing needed for coordination and control. That I can represent this using the Canvas is to me a demonstration of its flexibility and power. This paper presents an Operations Model, including a Control Model, developed to support reengineering of manufacturing logistic processes.
