How to deal with scope creep using concept statement
The purpose of the talk is to share experiences and tell you how we struggled with the situation of the infinite growth of the project’s boundaries, which often led to a breakdown of time and budget overruns. I will tell you how we managed to avoid the constant emergence of new functionality and new processes that have no relation to the goals of the system, by creating a solution concept at the start of the project. It will tell about what the concept should be able to solve this problem, and with what tools it can be created, as well as about our bitter experience that brought us to such a life.
Applying DEMO Methodology for the Enterprise Architecture Design
Enterprise Architecture (EA) is the main mechanism of the organisation goals implementation through appropriate information systems. EA enables a comprehensive assessment of the enterprise in terms of objectives, processes, an organisational structure, and their IT support. In this talk, we will focus on the business process analysis as a part of the overall EA effort.
In today’s world, we have a large number of languages and methodologies aimed at business process modelling and analysis. Unfortunately, most of them (BPMN, UML, IDEFx, etc.) are unable to describe an enterprise as a whole. Indeed, best decisions are hardly possible without understanding business process interrelations and having a holistic view of the enterprise.
Among others, DEMO is a methodology based on such a systematic approach. Considering a real-life example of the process landscape, we will describe basic principles of DEMO and provide you with an idea when and where to use it during the EA design.
