Scenario S1.2: Setting up a new division of an existing company

Use the following PlanIT and SAM Advisors to develop the iT plan for the new division:


  • Enterprise Modeller to build model of the new division (site) of the existing company. Only define the sites (new plus say the corporate) that will interact with each other. Only select the business functions (BFs) that will be done by the new division (e.g., manufacturing related BFs for a manufacturing division) or will need to be interfaced with the existing company.
  • Application Advisor to determine an application plan for the new division that shows what will be automated, what automation strategy will be used (buy, rent, outsource, develop, extend) and what application packages will be used.
  • Platform Advisor to determine the computing hardware and software plan for the new division
  • Network Advisor to determine the wired/wireless network plan for the new division
  • Security Advisor for securing the new division
  • Project Planner to develop a work breakdown structure, Gant charts and staffing estimates
  • Consolidated report to generate extensive documentation that contains the IT plan for the new division

Use the following AIM (Architecture and Integration Module) Advisors to determine how the new division applications will be integrated with the existing company:

  • Business Problem Explorer to  determine which applications of the new division interface with the existing company
  • Intelligent Requirement Generator to generate requirements for the target applications
  • Integrated Architecture Advisor to develop an SOA-based architecture
  • Integrated Solution Advisor to evaluate the  suggested architectures
  • Reiterate for all applications of the new division that will need to be integrated.
