Bu08h - An Information Model for Landscape Management - Discussing...

Last modified Apr 4, 2012


Planning, managing, and maintaining the evolution of the application landscape is a focal point of enterprise architecture (EA) management. Whereas, planning the evolution of business support provided by the business applications is understood as one challenge to be addressed in landscape management, another challenge arises in the context of historization and traceability of management decisions, which determine the EA projects actually changing the application landscape. This paper discusses the requirements regarding support for landscape management as risen by practitioners from industry. These requirements were gathered in an extensive survey during which the tool support for EA management was analyzed. Thereby, a lack of support for this management discipline was discovered, which is caused by the way, application landscapes are modeled in tools as well as in EA approaches from literature. We subsequently discuss how to incorporate these requirements into an information model, taking into account related modeling techniques from nearby disciplines
