â—¾Appraise the current major systems and architecture of the chosen organization.
â—¾Provide an overview of the enterprise architecture that is suitable for a nontechnical audience.
â—¾The overview must identify the key areas of the organization that can benefit from the application of an enterprise architecture analysis.
â—¾Compare and contrast at least 2 architectural models that might be suitable for your selected organization.



Architecture of the system represents the set of earliest design decision that are most difficult to get right and most critical to change. Architecture is the design artefact that addresses the goals of the system such as the reliability, security, modifiability, usability and real time performance (Abd-El-Barr & El-Rewini, 2005). The system describes the structure and serves communication route among the stakeholders such as managers, developers, users, maintainers, marketers, customers, testers and the one who invested in the use and development of the system. The architecture evaluation method is the part of development cycle.

Current major systems and architecture of the organization

Organisation architecture is a technology and management practice is devoted to improve the performance of the organisation and enabling the organisation to see themselves in term of integrated and holistic view of their business practices, strategic direction, technology resources and information flows (Allen & Henn, 2007). The organisation architecture supports the planning and decision making of the management by cording the views of entire organisation. The system develops future and current version to integrate views and managing the transition form of current to the future operating states. The structure is frame worked for the planning, development and analysis of all the resources of the organisation.

Current major systems and architecture of the organization

Enterprise architecture for the nontechnical audience

The organisation enterprise defines how the models at different level are related to each other. The description of the model needs to be understandable to the non technical audience. The balance need to be struck to develop the artefacts that can be used to provide the required technical information to the non technical audience (Eeckhout, 2010). The enterprise architecture should allow the audience to communicate with the organisation and providing the sets of documents regarding company’s performance, market share and market strategy of the organisation. This would help the organisation and allows the audience to understand the impact of IT investment and decisions.

The key areas of the organization that can benefit from the application of an enterprise architecture analysis

The success of the organisation architecture is bound to the implementation of the effective governance mechanisms that tends to carry the risk of failure for the architecture projects (Kowalski, 2011). The architecture analysis plays key role in the organisation in the areas of,




Policies and principle


Enabling tools

The dimensions of the organisation are leadership and investment are the critical to embed the functions within the corporate system and the four dimension policies and principle; measurement, enabling tool and processes are indispensable to make the work effectively for the organisation.

Enterprise architecture Governance Framework

Architectural model for the organisation

The architectural model of the organisation concerned with the learning tools/techniques to visualize the information to create trendy information graphics giving information sources and solid conceptual structure (Eeckhout, 2010).

Conceptual design

Information graphics are from the company and synthesis different pieces of the content from the various sources. The synthesis of the information sources involves the decision to define information architecture model of the information graphic and figuring out the structure including the master plan for the company and hierarchy of information (Kowalski, 2011).

Prototype design

The design targets to visualize the information that are already synthesized and organised based on information of architectural model organisation rationale, information, structure and hierarchies. The prototype design is most suitable for the organisation as they are perceived as the super signs referred as the visual components (Allen & Henn, 2007).  The information graphics are organised to compose the visual structure based on the information architectural model.
