Next, the scenario can be connected to an architecture visualization, like the first visualization on this page, and can be executed.

Here is a help page about Scenario Analysis Animation

What is a Scenario Analysis Animation?

A Scenario Analysis Animation is the visual execution of a chain of changes onto a model. Based on input values, assumptions and events a certain flow of events takes place, resulting in output values and business outcomes.

A very nice feature of Scenario Analysis animation is, that you can define principles and rules as constraints for the scenario. If the execution of a scenario runs into a principle or rule conflict, this is shown via message boxes and alerts. You can then either proceed playing the scenario or alter the scenario. Also you can define decisions resulting in questions asked during the execution of a scenario.

Overview of elements of a scenario are:

  1. Input values and (computed) output values
  2. (computed) Business Outcomes
  3. Assumptions
  4. Decisions
  5. Principles and Rules as Scenario Constraints
  6. Changes
  7. Actions
  8. Results
  9. Situations

Scenario Analysis for Architect, Manager, CIO and CTO

If you are an architect, manager, CIO or CTO you may be busy performing scenario analysis in excel or in another tool. From now on, you can make it easy for yourself.

You can use Dragon1 as scenario analysis software. You do not need to download anything or configure open-source software. You just have to buy a user license and log in. Following you pick a Scenario Analysis Example and start to alter it to your own situation.

Business Scenario Animation by the Enterprise Architect

Various architecture frameworks like TOGAF and Dragon1 talk about Business Scenario as import topic to run through a business plan.

On the Dragon1 platform, you can develop such a business scenario, with all the complexity you want. You can develop SMART business scenarios using elements like assumptions, measure results, and link everything to business requirements and business objectives.

You can do a scenario-based analysis of your architecture or you can do a scenario-driven analysis of your architecture. You can develop your own metamodel for scenario modeling. In Dragon1 there is a clear business scenario analysis example which will help you to get on the way.

Getting Started
