Resulting from practical experience with clients, this version integrates important updates to the Architecture domain, notably:

  • Enterprise Architecture founded on required business capabilities, favoring a service-oriented architecture (SOA) approach;
  • A "Definition of Capabilities" process to rapidly respond to the need to adapt the enterprise architecture to new business requirements;
  • Team structure focusing on three key roles in the process: Specialist in Enterprise Architecture, Business Architecture and Technology Architecture;
  • More intuitive documentation structure easily adaptable by project teams;
  • Glossary adjusted and enriched with terminology related to requirements and Service Management;
  • An approach that goes beyond the traditional enterprise architecture frameworks by taking a holistic view of the business and work architecture;
  • Implementation of the enterprise architecture management process as proposed by COBIT® 5;
  • Integration of business analysis activities as proposed by frameworks such as the BABOK®;
  • And many more important changes to be discovered in the What's New section (under "Support" on the Macroscope menu bar).

Additional changes will soon further enrich this version, in particular:

  • Processes to support management and governance of the enterprise architecture;
  • Available since 2014, August 15th: Enriched techniques to support the definition of business capabilities and of the business and technology component architecture.

Get more detail about the changes to the processes, roles and deliverables through the notes under the Support Material tab.
