S3.1: Outsourcing an existing application to a new company

Use the following PlanIT and SAM Advisors to develop the iT plan for the app being outsourced:  


  • Enterprise Modeller to build model of the new company site (this may be very simple depending on the info available about the other company). Also define a site of your company -- only define the existing business functions (BFs) and apps that will be outsourced. Also include BFs that will need to be interfaced with the app being outsourced.  
  • Application Advisor to determine an application plan for the site with focus on the service being outsourced. Also show the related apps of the new company and what will be automated, what automation strategy will be used (buy, rent, outsource, develop, extend) and what application packages will be used.

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 select the application(s) that will be outsourced.
  • Intelligent Requirement Generator to generate requirements for the target applications
  • Integrated Architecture Advisor and choose remote hosting (outsourcing) to develop a detailed SOA-based architecture
  • Integrated Solution Advisor to evaluate the  suggested architectures
  • Reiterate for all applications of the new service that will need to be integrated.
