OG0-092 TOGAF 9 Part 2 Question and Answers

Question # 4

Scenario: Sollace Manufacturing

Please read this scenario prior to answering the question

Sollace Manufacturing is a major supplier in the automotive industry, headquartered In Cleveland, Ohio with manufacturing plants in Chicago, Sao Paulo, Stuttgart, Yokohama, and Seoul. Each of these plants has been operating its own planning and production scheduling systems, as well as custom developed applications that drive the automated production equipment at each plant.

Sollace Manufacturing is implementing lean manufacturing principles to minimize waste and improve the efficiency of all of its production operations. During a recent exercise held for internal quality improvement, it was determined that a significant reduction in process waste could be achieved by replacing the current planning and scheduling systems with a common Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system located in the Cleveland data center. This central system would provide support to each of the plants replacing the functionality in the existing systems. It would also eliminate the need for full data centers at each of the plant facilities. A reduced number of IT staff could support the remaining applications. In some cases, a third-party contractor could provide those staff. The Sollace Manufacturing Enterprise Architecture department has been operating for several years and has mature, well-developed architecture governance and development processes that are strongly based on TOGAF 9. At a recent meeting, the Architecture Review Board approved a Request for Architecture Work from the Chief Engineer of Global Manufacturing Operations who is the project sponsor. The request covered the initial architectural investigations and the development of a comprehensive architecture to plan the transformation. The Common ERP Deployment architecture project team has now been formed, and the project team has been asked to develop an Architecture Vision that will achieve the desired outcomes and benefits. Some of the plant managers have expressed concern about the security and reliability of driving their planning and production scheduling from a central system located in Cleveland. The Chief Engineer wants to know how these concerns can be addressed.

Refer to the Sollace Manufacturing Scenario

You are serving as the Lead Enterprise Architect for the Common ERP Deployment architecture project. One of the earliest initiatives in the Enterprise Architecture program at Sollace Manufacturing was the definition of a set of IT principles and architecture principles that are well aligned with the overall enterprise principles. These now need to be updated to address the concerns raised.

You have been asked to select a set of principles most appropriate for guiding the team to define a robust solution. [Note: You should assume that Sollace Manufacturing has adopted the example set of principles that are listed and defined in TOGAF 9, Section 23.6.] Based on TOGAF 9, which of the following is the best answer?

A.

Common-use Applications, Data is Shared, Data is Accessible, Data Security, Interoperability, Control Technical Diversity

B.

Business Continuity, Service-orientation, Data is Accessible, Data Security, Responsive Change Management

C.

Maximize Benefit to the Enterprise, Business Continuity, Common-use Applications, Data is Shared, Data is Accessible, Data Security

D.

Information Management is Everybody's Business, IT Responsibility, Data Trustee, Technology Independence, Responsive Change Management

Question # 5

Carter Woods, a global furniture firm, wants to improve the efficiency of its sales force by replacing their legacy configuration and ordering systems based on manual and paper based processes with an online ordering platform.

Carter Woods uses the Architecture Delivery Method from TOGAF 9. The CIO sponsored this activity and the Baseline Architecture was defined on the initial iteration defining: approach, scope and architectural vision including a set of architecture principles related to the Data domain:

Data is an asset.

Data is shared.

Data is accessible.

A set of aspects to clarify arose from the business analysis from the assumption to replace the legacy systems with an online centralized one. These main concerns are:

· To identify the changes to existing business processes.

· To identify the data entities that can be shared among the sales agents.

· To clarify how to keep the data secured.

· To identify the list of non-sales application to be integrated with the sales applications

Refer to the scenario above

You, as Lead Enterprise Architect, need to identify the most appropriate architecture viewpoints to address the concerns above mentioned.

Question # 6

Scenario

Please read this scenario prior to answering the question

Your role is that of Lead Enterprise Architect working at the headquarters of a fast food chain. The chain manages over 7500 restaurants across 33 countries. Each restaurant in the chain is an independently owned and operated franchise.

Many of the restaurants still use the first generation IT systems deployed over 10 years ago. The Chief Operating Officer (COO) of the chain has stated his concerns about the inefficiencies of the current systems and identified the need to change. He has defined a new strategic vision that will enhance the business including providing its franchisees new support services to help them address the increasing competition from coffee shops. This is part of the long-term commitment to enhance the brand image and increase revenue for the chain. He has also stated that he expects improved financial results by the end of the current fiscal year.

The changes will help provide the chain with improved products, including healthier alternatives in the menu, and more efficient operations. The addition of a corporate-wide data warehouse will provide analytics that will enable the marketing group to improve its ability to target advertising and new products to specific regions.

The chain has a mature Enterprise Architecture practice based in its headquarters and uses the TOGAF standard as the method and guiding framework. The CIO is the sponsor of the activity.

In planning the change, the Chief Architect engaged the services of a well-known consulting firm that specializes in business strategy. An initial study has been conducted to identify the strategic changes needed to implement the COO’s vision. This recently completed with approval of a strategic architecture encompassing the entire chain, including detailed requirements and recommendations.

Based on the recommendations from the initial study, the decision has been taken for the chain to adopt a packaged suite of integrated applications that is tailored to the needs of the franchise.

Refer to the scenario

You have been asked by the Chief Architect to propose the best approach for architecture development to realize the COO’s vision.

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

A.

You propose that the focus be placed on architecture definition, with emphasis on understanding the strategic change parameters. The requirements, drivers, issues, and constraint for this engagement can then be identified. You would ensure that the target architecture addresses non-functional requirements so as to ensure the target architecture is robust and secure.

B.

You propose that the target architecture is defined first by going through the architecture definition phases (B-D). This is because the initial study identified the need to change. This will ensure that the change can be defined in a structured manner and address the requirements needed to realize the vision.

C.

You propose that the baseline Technology Architecture is defined first in order to assess the current infrastructure capacity and capability. Then the focus should be on transition planning and architecture deployment. This will identify requirements to ensure that the projects are sequenced in an optimal fashion so as to realize the vision.

D.

You propose that the target architecture is defined first, followed by transition planning. This is because the vision is well understood and the strategic architecture agreed. The target first approach will ensure that the current problems and inefficiencies of the baseline architecture are not carried forward, and that the proposed solution addresses the requirements identified in the initial study.
