Special Recognitions (pre-SOA CoP)
• Special Recognition for "Break Through" Performance
  Presented at the ArchitecturePlus Seminar, January 18,
  2005, American Institute of Architects, Washington, DC.
   – Richard Murphy, Enterprise Architect, U.S. General Services
     Administration, and Sun Certified Enterprise Architect and
     Founding Member of the Worldwide Institute of Software
     Architects, for breakthrough performance in "skating to where
     the puck is going, not where it's been" by supporting multiple
     communities of practice, bridging enterprise architecture and the
     Semantic Web in the SICoP White Paper, and leading the
     development of the FEA Reference Model Ontology, which is
     expected to become a core component of many applications. As
     an avid hockey player and fan himself, Rick understands the
     value of teamwork "in skating to where the puck is going, not
     where it's been."

Special Recognitions (pre-SOA CoP)
• Special Recognition for "Break Through" Performance
  Presented at the Second Quarterly Emerging
  Technology Components Conference, January 26, 2004,
  White House Conference Center.
   – George Thomas, GSA Enterprise Architect, and Member of the
     Emerging Technology Subcommittee, for "having a conversation
     with everyone" about an open standards orientation to Enterprise
     Architecture as a community of practice and solution for
     business-driven Enterprise Architecture leading to the
     "Executable FEA". This design-time MDA (Model-Driven
     Architecture) and runtime SOA (Service-Oriented Architecture)
     toolset provides an EA repository in support of GSA's vision of
     "One GSA EA".

 3. SOA CoP SOA Maturity Model
• Dick Burk, OMB Chief Architect and
  Manager, Federal Enterprise Architecture
  Program recently spoke about:
  – The Federal Transition Framework (FTF).
  – Beyond the Reference Models.
  – Solving Business Problems Using Enterprise
    Architecture:
    • Recommended Reading – Enterprise Architecture
      as Strategy by Jeanne Ross, Peter Weill, and
      David Robertson, Harvard Business School Press,
      2006, 234 pp. (see next slide)
                                                    21
 3. SOA CoP SOA Maturity Model
• “When it comes to successful execution of your
  strategy, your operating model may matter far
  more than your strategy itself.”
• Research shows that organizations follow a
  consistent pattern the authors call the “Four
  Stages of Architecture Maturity”:
   –   Business Silos
   –   Standardize Technology
   –   Optimized Core
   –   Business Modularity
• The Fifth Stage of Architecture Maturity:
   – Dynamic Venturing (partnering)
 Source: Enterprise Architecture as Strategy by Jeanne Ross, Peter Weill,
                                                                            22
 and David Robertson, Harvard Business School Press, 2006, 234 pp.
 3. SOA CoP SOA Maturity Model
• The FEA focuses on the OMB budget process
  and project management while SOA is the actual
  modeling of complex IT and governance
  environments like GSA is doing for the Financial
  Management Line of Business (LoB).
• Both are needed and can be complimentary and
  the SOA CoP is about “dynamic partnering” in
  support of the Lines of Business (LoB), the new
  Federal Transition Framework (FTF), and the
  new Data Reference Model 2.0 Management
  Strategy (see next slide).

     3. SOA CoP SOA Maturity Model
This “publish catalog” could lead to…       This metamodel for DRM 2.0 could…




the “publish”, “find”, & “bind” of a SOA.    become services layers in a SOA.
                                                                         24
