Governance, Risk Management and Compliance

Written by
Governance, Risk Management and Compliance Good governance helps guide good decision making for public organizations and companies. This helps to provide transparent decision making, that adheres to relevant government legislation, providing a safe and fair environment for the end-users of the designed systems. There are numerous advantages of using Enterprise Architect to model the strategy within a repository and link that strategic direction and executive thinking to the processes, architectures, software and capabilities that are being directed and then modeled. This is a highly effective and powerful means of ensuring that strategic direction is followed and tied to the fundamental…
One of the latest features of Sparx Enterprise Architect 15 is the model based add-ins which can be created using JavaScript.  These model based add-ins are defined by a combination of Receptions, Attributes and Operations which can be easily added in a model by just creating with a valid stereotyped classes. Assuming having basic knowledge with Sparx Traditional add-ins, broadcast events and JavaScript. Why model based add-ins Accessed by all the users within a model Purely Model specific  No installation, registry entries , distribution or license worries Self-Documenting as everything is modelled and created directly in EA Prerequisites Signal Reference Library (…

How-to: Functional Documentation in Enterprise Architect   Written by: Carolien de Langen Chan Kerste
A Standards-Based Modeling Approach for Industry 4.0 Architectures Authors: Christoph Binder, Christian Neureiter, Goran Lastro, Mathias Uslar andPeter Lieber Abstract. Emerging technologies in the industrial area lead to a continuously increasing complexity concerning systems development. Varying approaches dealing with the same problem generate a number of heterogeneous solutions instead of concentrating on a mutual tool-set in order to provide a common basis. Having recognized this issue, the German industry introduced the Reference Architecture Model for Industry 4.0 (RAMI 4.0), proposed in the standardized technical speci cation DIN SPEC 91345. Providing a three-dimensional model on how to structure industrial systems, the starting point for the discussion on how to…

Data Identity Security

Written by
Abstract We live in an information paradigm. The standard model of physics is being challenged and replaced by a data centric probabilistic universe. It turns out that our deterministic material reality was a subjective human view of events, when viewed in the light of advances in quantum energy, fractals and chaos mathematics. Automated industrial and personal computing applications are now completely pervasive in the fabric of human society in both the developed and developing world. And they are all built of blocks of data. We do have to evolve our concepts of data to understand that information technology is now…
Enterprise Architect supports comprehensive architecture modelling through its extensive support for standards and ability to allow extending such standards to suit organization specific needs.  Enterprise Architect can be used to create a holistic view of the organization with all granular details across the Business , Application , Information and Technology Layers captured in a single source of truth. The details are stored as Attributes associated to indvidiual artifacts, which can be used for slicing and dicing and further due diligence. Application Portfolio Management includes several tasks which require careful analysis of Enterprise Architect model information. Dynamic, intuitive reports and charts…
