Case Studies

Case Studies (34)

A Case Study is a collection of information about an individual, company, standards body or entity that wish to illustrate their experience with Enterprise Architect. It could describe an evaluation of a process, specific implementation, a real world example or demonstrate a best practice approach for a given industry or domain. Use this link to submit innovative and exciting case studies on how Enterprise Architect has been successfully used within your organization.

Implementation of a model based interface management tool About AEON Engineering entered into a contract to migrate legacy engineering documentation into a model based database for the Square Kilometre Array Organisation (SKAO).   Project The purpose of this contract was to perform the interrogation and organisation of a legacy set of engineering documentation - converting paper interface specifications into a database of over 1000 documents housed in an online repository. The legacy engineering documentation covered a wide breadth of engineering disciplines (everything from software, RF, mechanics and structures, electrical power and plant) with the major challenge in standardising specifications such…
Taking your daily commute to work, paper cup of scalding coffee in one hand and the other hand gripping the rail, you gently rock to and fro as the rail car shuttles along its pre-ordained route. From experience you know that you need to be especially careful not to scald yourself when you enter and depart a station as the rail car smoothly de-accelerates and accelerates, respectively. These events are mercifully predictable but despite your status as a veteran commuter the jerks[1] between stations remain mercilessly unpredictable.

Enterprise Architecture scalability

Written by
    Enterprise Architecture covers a range of practices from business strategy through the structure and organisations of applications to detailed design using enterprise frameworks. While Business, Applications and Technology Architecture are often developed independently to address different stakeholder needs, the value of modelling is enhanced when different views are reconciled through realisation, trace and dependency relationships. In complex organisations, high-level taxonomies carry more influence when they represent the aggregation of application and services, while applications criticality is better understood when related to high-level functions and critical processes. A Universal Bank example A universal (covering Retail, Corporate, Investment and Wealth)…
  In Data Lineage we highlighted that data lineage can be captured using UML <<trace>> relationships and field-level lineage can be projected from trace + common attribute names. This blog is concerned with using those relationships to automatically derive systems lineage. Application Landscape A core deliverable for any mature Enterprise Architecture practice is the application landscape that shows applications within the content of the platforms and layers that they are built upon, clustered so that collaborators appear next to each other. Applications are connected by <<Flow>> relationships that highlight the data that is passed between them. Often only the high-level flows are used, but the detail…

Mode Driven Architecture with code-generation

Written by
Background Cephei.QL is a large project, consisting of over two thousand classes and twenty thousand closures. It has been implemented in F# because parallel executing needs to be functionally immutable to avoid co-mutation of data on separate threads, but is also a simpler problem when type inference can be implied in many places. Whilst there is a huge amount of code that needs to be produced; with some exceptions, the pattern of mapping an underlying library to a higher level abstraction is common Overview This blog is about how model-driven architecture can be applied to the problem of creating a library that…
Norbert Schattner of ifb Group was significantly involved in Norbert Schattner of ifb Group was significantly involved in the development of the reference architecture REFRAME for over ten years. REFRAME is based on the SPARX Enterprise Architect platform and enables corporate transformations in the financial sector. Ifb focuses its architecture entirely on standardisation and automation. Following a number of successes with insurance customers in Switzerland and Germany, ifb recently also convinced an Austrian insurance group of the benefits of its approach.    
"Software Engineering" is a course taught at Faculty of Electronics, Telecommunications and Informatics, Gdańsk University of Technology, Poland. The course belongs to the core part of teaching programme for undergraduate engineering studies in Informatics and is obligatory for all Informatics students. The course is focused on introducing students to the aspects of industrial software development: large-scale systems and their software development projects, compliance to requirements of a specific customer, business goals driving requirements and design, a required level of quality to be assured, deployment and long-term maintenance of systems. It consists of lectures and laboratory sessions. The lecture presents the…
 Using Enterprise Architect and the Pro Cloud Server in Education System Thinking in IT Solutions and Digital Fabrication - Course     What is the Cost of Poor Quality IT Solutions Who knows the true cost of poor qualitry IT systems? Who cares about it? How can you measure the quality of IT solutions?  We can estimate, but it must be a relatively large proportion of the final cost for the completed solution. And it is not just a matter of money. I am convinced that a systematic approach throughout the whole lifecycle of IT solutions must be more advantageous than using…
SparxSystems CE: Belgian Railway relies on Enterprise Architect In order to prepare itself for the liberalisation of national railway markets in 2023, the Belgian National Railway Company SNCB has developed an architecture continuum using Enterprise Architect over the last three years. With more than 1000 applications in use and a huge volume of data, this was not an easy task. Today, IT decisions can be made more easily based on reliable information, and the company is now able to move toward a modern IT landscape.  Luc Alix (left), Head of Enterprise Architecture and Alain Garsoux (right) in charge of Architecture Governance…
During his time as an Enterprise Architect consultant, Jan van Oort trained numerous SparxSystems Central Europe customers eager to improve their modeling skills and methodologies. When he co-founded the startup KIVU in 2016, he naturally introduced Enterprise Architect there as well, which quickly became a key development tool. KIVU Technologies is a provider of scalable software for network analysis which is currently in demand, not only in the security sector. In times of increasing monitoring and collection of mass data, KIVU is an exceptional example. Using well-designed software, KIVU enables the analysis of networks (not just social networks) from known…
