Architecture Principles Management Use Case

Objective: Transparency about the usage of Architecture Principles in systems, their business relevancy to realize strategy and their guidance in innovation projects.

Key Questions

  1. What is an overview of Architecture Principles that we actually should make use of (reference architectures)?
  2. Which principles do we actually (not) use in the core systems and architectures of the company (and how well)?
  3. How well are Architecture Principles documented and published? Are they accessible for stakeholders?
  4. How are Architecture Principles used in solutions and projects? How do they guide projects?
  5. What is the roadmap for new Architecture Principles to use, in line with our strategy?

Business Benefits

  • Reduce Cost – By having less exceptions because of standardization
  • Reduce Risk – By having architecture principles used more effectively and having less exotic solutions
  • Increase Agility – By supporting business better with new technologies
