Background

ETA Project was established in early 2003 and completed in September 2003.– Derived from IR’s Technology Strategy.

Based on TOGAF, with appropriate adjustments– To suit IR needs– Engaged IBM expertise to assist in establishing work

products, and enhance IR/Method.

Overall Enterprise Architecture established – 3-year horizon– Key capabilities of Enterprise Application Integration (EAI),

and Identity and Access Management System (IAMS), acquired and deployed.

ETA – What is it?

“A framework for making IT investment and design decisions in support of business objectives.” (IBM)

ETA Vision is to establish a technology environment which strives to:

– be responsive to the business.– maximise the use of information technology components.– ensure informed and consistent technology decision making.

ETA consists of the following:– Architecture Drivers which describe what the architecture must do to

support the business.– A set of IT Principles that define the underlying general rules to

deploy technology resources across the organisation.– Reference Architectures which provide a design of how logical

components can fit together for a particular technology.– Standard Operating Environment (SOE) specification which provides

product standards governing the use of hardware, software and application systems.

– Architecture Management Framework (AMF) – defining the processes, roles and responsibilities to manage and implement ETA.

IR’s Enterprise Architecture needs to be aligned with its Business & IT

Strategies in order to put in place an effective ETA.

ETA’s Architecture Framework is used as a starting point. The ETA focus, at this time, is on the Information Technology Architecture &

associated Governance.

12

ETA Challenges

Increasing speed to market – ability to quickly react to change.

Moving away from build to re-use to buy – embrace open industry standards.

Aligning business and IT – making informed business decisions.

Facilitating greater accessibility of IR services – diverse mix of channels that are highly available.

Lowering cost of ownership of IR systems – Systems consolidation, rationalisation and standardisation.

ETA Goals

Virtual Organisation – providing location independence for IR staff

Systems Consolidation – providing standardised and simplified IT infrastructure

Channel Independence – providing consistent user experience across multiple channels

High Availability – providing standards and techniques to deliver reliable and highly accessible customer services

Single Identity – providing consistent security treatment for internal users and external customers

Time Horizon – 3 years (05/06 to 07/08)

SOE Decision Criteria

Core Existing assets that we want to re-use (e.g. maintenance).

Emerging Existing and future Assets that are going to feature in our strategy going forward (e.g. new development).

Declining Existing assets that will not be invested in or re-used, and, are ultimately candidates for de-commissioning.

Special Case

Assets that are not Core or Emerging, but granted special dispensation (i.e. Apple Mac’s for publishing).

Each asset will be categorised with these decision criteria…

ETA Governance Model

ETA Governance Model has two objectives, namely:

– The effective ongoing development and maintenance of the ETA as a whole.

– The enforcement of architecture compliance within Inland Revenue.

Implications

Project life cycle will be different Project initiation – ETA delivers architected solutions outline

up front Project design – ETA assures architecture compliance Project completion – ETA adds re-usable components to

asset base

Project funding model will support both business and technology benefits (ie. projects’ contribution to technology asset base)

Lessons Learnt

Page 26: Enterprise Architecture IRD

Enterprise Technology Architecture

Monday, April 10, 2023

Lessons (being) Learnt

ETA is more effective when focusing on the future – difficult to influence projects already commenced.

– ETA & Project goals are in conflict – balancing “enterprise goodness” goals against delivery goals of time and cost.

Need to be better connected with key parts of the organisation– Strategic Planning, Finance, Risk & Assurance– Project Governance groups

Need to watch out for “short termism” or “quick wins”– Short term always looks cheaper– ETA benefits are always in the long term.

Standards enforcement is difficult– Must demonstrate business value – why the standard is important– Guidelines to projects on how they can conform – shift in emphasis to Vendors– “Take away the choice” from projects – provide a standards based

infrastructure

Sound and top-down Governance is key
