PowerDesigner Architecture

Through link and sync technology, PowerDesigner captures intuitively and automatically the connections between the layers that make up the architecture of the enterprise, allowing users of any level view and implement reliable, easy and predictable business changes. Not the slightest doubt as Jorge Gabriel Londono emphasized, the implementation of an enterprise architecture allows, among other things, encourage the best use of the information technologies, promote the implementation of a set of standards and implementation guides, bearing clear that the proposed architecture is a bet for the future, which is not a shirt force (therefore is recognized the permanent evolution of the technology and the business needs), and that in this way we must be ready for evolution and change (not definitions forever). To this is added, that an enterprise architecture must be supported in tangible benefits for the business; at the strategic level it would be represented in the business agility that would be gained by facilitating the introduction of new business models quickly and business efficiency for better orchestrated via a more natural, reliable and timely integration processes, and that at the operational level of it (information technology) would be mainly represented in cost reduction (via the exploitation of economies of scale and the destination of less support resources), ease of scalability, better security, recovery and management backing, among other processes. Adds us Londono, deemed that you business objectives must be well defined and agreed upon before the implementation of any it solution. Add value to the business through information technology is the primary reason to make investment decisions. It architecture decisions should maximize interoperability and reusability. It architecture decisions should lay the groundwork to enable the organization toward the development of new ways of doing business, i.e., should enhance the agility and business efficiency.

The architectural framework must set standards for common needs of internal and external customers of the company. It and business requirements should adopt commercial technology solutions instead of custom, or own solutions that respond to the architectural principles in their level. The identification, integration and implementation services is the key to ensure flexibility and adaptation of business. The architectural framework should be consistent with the policies and strategic objectives of the organization. It definitely says Londono, you have to understand the implementation of enterprise architecture as a journey toward a goal clear and temporarily stable, amid a great organizational dynamic of change; framed in the juridical and favorable business cases. Today we are acting in each of the levels, from the generalities of mission and strategy business to the particularity of the implementation of services at the level of application domains.
