Questions 20

Please read this scenario prior to answering the question

Your role is consultant to the Lead Architect within a multinational company that manufactures electronic components. The company has several manufacturing divisions located worldwide and a complex supply chain. After a recent study, senior management have stated a concern about business efficiency considering the company's multiple data centers and duplication of applications.

The company has a mature Enterprise Architecture (EA) practice and uses the TOGAF architecture development method in its EA practice. In addition to the EA program, the company has several management frameworks in use, including business planning, project/portfolio management, and operations management. The EA program is sponsored by the CIO.

A strategic architecture has been defined to improve the ability to meet customer demand and improve management of the supply chain. The strategic architecture includes the consolidation of multiple Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) applications that have been operating independently in the divisions' production facilities.

Each division has completed the Architecture Definition documentation to meet its own specific manufacturing requirements. The enterprise architects have defined a set of work packages that address the gaps identified. They have identified the value produced, effort required, and dependencies between work packages to reach a farget architecture that would integrate a new ERP environment into the company.

Because of the risks posed by change from the current environment, the architects have recommended that a phased approach occurs to implement the target architecture with several transition states. The overall implementation process is estimated to take several years.

Refer to the scenario

You have been asked what the next steps are for the migration planning.

Based on the TOGAF standard which of the following is the best answer?

Options:

A.

You conduct a series of Compliance Assessments to ensure that the architecture is being implemented according to the contract. The Compliance Assessment should verify that the implementation team is using the proper development methodology. It should include deployment of monitoring tools and ensure that performance targets are being met. If they are not met, then you would identify changes to performance requirements and update those in th

Questions 21

Please read this scenario prior to answering the question

You are the Lead Enterprise Architect at a major agribusiness company. The company's main

annual harvest is lentils, a highly valued food grown worldwide. The lentil parasite, broomrape,

has been an increasing concern for many years and is now becoming resistant to chemical

controls. In addition, changes in climate favor the propagation and growth of the parasite. As a

result, the parasite cannot realistically be exterminated, and it has become pandemic, with lentil

yields falling globally.

The CEO appreciates the seriousness of the situation and has set out a change in direction

that is effectively a new business for the company. There are opportunities for new products,

and new markets. The company will use the fields for another harvest and will cease to process

third-party lentils. Thus, the target market will change, and the end-products will be different

and more varied. This is a major decision and the CEO has stated a desire to repurpose rather

than replace so as to manage the risks and limit the costs.

The company has a mature Enterprise Architecture practice based in its headquarters and uses

the TOGAF standard as the method and guiding framework. The practice has an established

Architecture Capability, and uses iteration for architecture development. The CIO is the sponsor

of the activity.

The CIO has assigned the Enterprise Architecture team to this activity. At this stage there is no

shared vision, or requirements.

Refer to the scenario

You have been asked to propose the best approach for architecture development to realize the

CEO's change in direction for the company.

Based on the TOGAF standard which of the following is the best answer?

Options:

A.

You propose that the team focus on architecture definition, with emphasis on defining

the change parameters to support this new business strategy that the CEO has

identified. Once understood, the team will be in the best position to identify the

requirements, drivers, issues, and constraints for the change. You would ensure that the

architecture development addresses non-functional requirements to assure that the

B.

You propose that this engagement define the baseline Technology Architecture first in

order to assess the current infrastructure capacity and capability for the company. Then

the focus should be on transition planning and incremental architecture deployment.

This will identify requirements to ensure that the projects are sequenced in an optimal

fashion so as to realize the change.

C.

You propose that the priority is to understand and bring structure to the definition of the

change. The team should focus iteration cycles on a baseline first approach to

architecture development, and then transition planning. This will identify what needs to

change in order to transition from the baseline to the target, and can be used to work out

in detail what the shared vision is for the change.

D.

You propose that the team focus its iteration cycles on architecture development by

going through the architecture definition phases (B-D) with a baseline first approach.

This will support the change in direction as stated by the CEO. It will ensure that the

change can be defined in a structured manner and address the requirements needed to

realize the change.

Questions 22

Please read this scenario prior to answering the question

You are working as the Chief Enterprise Architect within a law firm specializing in personal injury cases. Many of the firm's competitors have improved their litigation strategies, and efficiency by streamlining their processes using Artificial Intelligence {Al).

The CIO has approved a Request for Architecture Work to examine the use of Machine Learning in defining a new Al-driven litigation and finance process for the firm. This process would instruct the lawyers and analysts as to what tasks and portfolio they should work on. The key objectives are to increase task profitability, maximize staff utilization, and increase individual profitability.

The CIO has emphasized that the architecture should enable the fast implementation of continuous Machine Learning. The solution will need to be constantly measured for delivered value and be quickly iterated to success.

Some of the partners have expressed concerns about letting the Al make the decisions, others about the risks associated with use of it for the type of service they deliver. The CIO wants to know if these concerns can be addressed, and how risks will be covered by a new architecture enabling Al and Machine Learning.

Refer to the scenario

You have been asked to respond to the CIO recommending an approach that would enable the development of an architecture that addresses the concerns of the CIO and the concerns of the partners.

Based on the TOGAF standard which of the following is the best answer?

Options:

A.

You recommend that a Communications Plan be created to address the key stakeholders, the most powerful and influential partners. This plan should include a report that summarizes the key features of the architecture reflecting their requirements. You will check with each key stakeholder that their concerns are being addressed. Risk mitigation and agility will be explicitly addressed as a component of the architecture being developed.

B.

You recommend that an analysis of the stakeholders is undertaken resulting in documenting the stakeholders and their concerns in a Stakeholder Map. The concerns and relevant views should then be defined for each group and recorded in the Architecture Vision document. The requirements will include risk mitigation through regular assessments. This will also allow a supervised agile implementation of the continuous Machine Learning.

C.

You recommend that all possible models be created for each candidate architecture that will enable the Al and Machine Learning solution. This ensures that all the necessary data and detail is addressed. A formal review should be held with the stakeholders to verify that their concerns have been properly addressed by the models. Agility will be considered during Phase G Implementation Governance.

D.

You recommend creation of a set of business models that can be applied uniformly across all architecture projects. The stakeholders will be trained to understand the business models to ensure they can see that their concerns are being addressed. Risk will be addressed once the Security Architecture is developed, which will happen later to avoid slowing down the agility required by the CIO.

Your role is that of a consultant to the Lead Enterprise Architect to an international supplier of

engineering services and automated manufacturing systems. It has three manufacturing plants

where it assembles both standard and customized products for industrial production

automation. Each of these plants has been operating its own planning and production

scheduling systems, as well as applications and control systems that drive the automated

production line.

The Enterprise Architecture department has been operating for several years and has mature,

well-developed architecture governance and development processes that are based on the

TOGAF Standard. The CIO sponsors the Enterprise Architecture.

During a recent management meeting, a senior Vice-President highlighted an interview where

a competitor company's CIO is reported as saying that their production efficiency had been

improved by replacing multiple planning and scheduling systems with a common Enterprise

Resource Planning (ERP) system located in a central data center. Some discussion followed,

with the CIO responding that the situations are not comparable, and the current architecture is

already optimized.

In response, the Architecture Board approved a Request for Architecture Work covering the

investigations to determine if such an architecture transformation would lead to improvements

in efficiency. You have been assigned to support the architecture team working on this project.

A well-known concern of the plant managers is about the security and reliability of driving their

planning and production scheduling from a remote centralized system. Any chosen system

would also need to support the current supply chain network consisting of local partners at

each of the plants.

Refer to the scenario

You have been asked to explain how you will initiate the architecture project.

Based on the TOGAF Standard, which of the following is the best answer?

Options:

Your role is that of a consultant to the Lead Enterprise Architect in a multinational automotive manufacturer.

The company has a corporate strategy that focuses on electrification of its portfolio, and it has invested

heavily in a new shared car platform to use across all its brands. The company has four manufacturing

facilities, one in North America, two in Europe, and one in Asia.

A challenge that the company is facing is to scale up the number of vehicles coming off the production line to meet customer demand, while maintaining quality. There are significant supply chain shortages for electronic components, which are impacting production. In response to this the company has taken on new suppliers and has also taken design and production of the battery pack in-house.

The company has a mature Enterprise Architecture practice. The TOGAF standard is used for developing

the process and systems used to design, manufacture, and test the battery pack. The Chief Information

Officer and the Chief Operating Officer co-sponsor the Enterprise Architecture program.

As part of putting the new battery pack into production, adjustments to the assembly processes need to be made. A pilot project has been completed at a single location. The Chief Engineer, sponsor of the activity, and the Architecture Board have approved the plan for implementation and migration at each plant.

Draft Architecture Contracts have been developed that detail the work needed to implement and deploy the new processes for each location. The company mixes internal teams with a few third-party contractors at the locations. The Chief Engineer has expressed concern that the deployment will not be consistent and of acceptable quality.

You are the Chief Enterprise Architect at a large food service company specializing in sales to trade and

wholesale, for example, restaurants and other food retailers.

One of your company's competitors has launched a revolutionary product range and is running a very

aggressive marketing campaign. Your company's resellers are successively announcing that they are not

interested in your company's products and will sell your competitor's.

The CEO has stated there must be significant change to address the situation. He has made it clear that

new markets must be found for the company's products, and that the business needs to pivot, and address the retail market as well as the existing wholesale market.

A consideration is the company's ability and willingness to change its business model, and if it is a temporary or permanent change. An additional risk factor is one of culture. The company has been used to a stable business with a reasonably well known and settled client base - all with its own local understandings and practices.

The CEO is the sponsor of the EA program within the company. You have been engaged with the sales,

logistics, production, and marketing teams, enabling the architecture activity to start. An Architecture Vision, Architecture Principles, and Requirements have all been agreed. As you move forward to develop a possible Target Architecture you have identified that some of the key stakeholders' preferences are incompatible. The incompatibilities are focused primarily on time-to-market, cost savings, and the need to bring out a fully featured product range, but there are additional factors.

Refer to the scenario

You have been asked how you will address the incompatibilities between key stakeholder preferences.

Based on the TOGAF standard which of the following is the best answer?

Options:

A.

You would seek to understand value preferences and priorities of the stakeholders. You would

develop alternative Target Architectures, highlighting the gaps between current state and the

alternatives. You would consider combining features from one or more alternatives in collaboration

with the stakeholders. A formal stakeholder review should then be held to decide which alternative is

fit for purpose and should be mo

You are serving as the Lead Architect for an Enterprise Architecture team within a leading multinational biotechnology company. The company works in three major industries, including healthcare, crop production, and agriculture. Your team works within the healthcare division.

The healthcare division is developing a new vaccine, and has to demonstrate its effectiveness and safety in a set of clinical trials that satisfy the regulatory requirements of the relevant health authorities. The clinical trials are undertaken by its research laboratories at multiple facilities worldwide. In addition to internal research and development activities, the healthcare division is also involved in publicly funded collaborative research projects with industrial and academic partners.

The Enterprise Architecture team has been engaged in an architecture project to develop a secure system that will allow the healthcare researchers to share information more easily about their clinical trials, and work more collaboratively across the organization and also with its partners. This system will also connect with external partners.

The Enterprise Architecture team uses the TOGAF ADM with extensions required to support healthcare manufacturing practices and laboratory practices. Due to the highly sensitive nature of the information that is managed, special care has been taken to ensure that each architecture domain considers the security and privacy issues that are relevant.

The Vice President for Worldwide Clinical Research is the sponsor of the Enterprise Architecture activity. She has stated that disruptions must be minimized for the clinical trials, and that the rollout must be undertaken incrementally.

You have been appointed as Chief Enterprise Architect (CEA). reporting to the Chief Technical Officer (CTO), of a company established as a separate operating entity by a major automotive manufacturer. The mission of the company is to build a new industry leading unified technology and software platform for electric vehicles.

The company uses the TOGAF Standard as the basis for its Enterprise Architecture (EA) framework, and architecture development follows the purpose-based EA Capability model as described in the TOGAF Series Guide: A Practitioners'Approach to Developing Enterprise Architecture Following the TOGAF® ADM.

An end-to-end Target Architecture has been completed with a roadmap for change over a five-year period. The new platform will be a cross-functional effort between hardware and software teams, with significant changes over the old platform. It is expected to be developed in several stages over three years. The EA team has inherited the architecture for the previous generation hardware and software automotive platform, some of which can be carried over to the new unified platform. The EA team has started to define the new platform, including defining which parts of the architecture to carry forward.

Enough of the Business Architecture has been defined, so that work can commence on the Information Systems and Technology Architectures. Those need to be defined to support the core business services that the company plans to provide. The core services will feature an innovative approach with swarm data generated by vehicles, paving the way for autonomous driving in the future.

Your role is that of a senior architect, reporting to the Chief Enterprise Architect, at a medium-sized company with 400 employees. The nature of the business is such that the data and the information stored on the company systems is their major asset and is highly confidential.

The company employees travel extensively for work and must communicate over public infrastructure using message encryption, VPNs, and other standard safeguards. The company has invested in cybersecurity awareness training for all its staff. However, it is recognized that even with good education as well as system security, there is a dependency on third-parly suppliers of infrastructure and software.

The company uses the TOGAF standard as the method and guiding framework for its Enterprise Architecture (EA) practice. The CTO is the sponsor of the activity.

The Chief Security Officer (CSO) has noted an increase in ransomware (malicious software used in ransom demands) attacks on companies with a similar profile. The CSO recognizes that no matter how much is spent on education, and support, it is likely just a matter of time before the company suffers a significant attack that could completely lock them out of their information assets.

A risk assessment has been done and the company has sought cyber insurance that includes ransomware coverage. The quotation for this insurance is hugely expensive. The CTO has recently read a survey that stated that one in four organizations paying ransoms were still unable to recover their data, while nearly as many were able to recover the data without paying a ransom. The CTO has concluded that taking out cyber insurance in case they need to pay a ransom is not an option.
