[Business Focus Area Line of Business Name] Modernization Blueprint

1. Introduction

    1.1 Purpose

    [Briefly define the purpose of the document. This document provides a comprehensive

    Modernization Blueprint which defines the target state vision and transition plan for business

    transformation.]

    1.2 Scope

    [Briefly describe the scope of the Modernization Blueprint. This should be specific to the line of

    business within the business focus area.]

    1.3 Methodology

    [Describe how the MBT analysis was used in developing the modernization blueprint.

    The Methodology for Business Transformation (MBT) was employed in developing the

    Modernization Blueprint. The MBT is a disciplined analysis best practice employed for

    developing strategic plans for business modernization. The methodology encapsulates analysis

    of all aspects of business and technology to deliver a complete modernization roadmap. MBT

    ensures a successful application of enterprise architecture disciplines in defining and analyzing

    a defined business focus area (BFA). ]

    1.4 Document Overview

    [The Modernization Blueprint is comprised of five primary sections:

    ? Executive Overview: This is a brief (1-2 pages) overview that describes the motivation

    behind the Modernization Blueprint. It is focused on providing clear, concise answers to

    key questions, such as: Where are we? Where do we want to go? How do we get there?

    ? Business Overview: Provides a quick reference to the opportunities for improvement and

    a general context for maturity of the business focus area (BFA) line of business (LoB).

    Provides a brief description of the business functions and services that are provided and

    the strategic objectives that are to be achieved by the transformation.

    ? Recommendations for Business Transformation: Describes the existing architecture

    issues from a variety of perspectives. The Findings and Recommendations (F&R) are

    described in the context of the specific business products and services where

    improvements are recommended due to strategic drivers such as eliminating

    redundancies, filling voids, or other general industry trends. All findings are associated

    to specific recommendations on how to proceed.

    ? Target Technology Environment: Describes target state for the technology environment

    required to support the business transformation recommendations and the strategic

    systems migration plan.

    ? Target Data Environment: Describes the target conceptual data model and environment.

3. Business Overview

    [The purpose of this section of the document is to explain why this Blueprint was done. The

    executive audience needs to understand "why" this document has come to them. Tell the story of

    "what" has happened in the past (background) and "how" the proposed Modernization Blueprint

    will alleviate that pain (conclusion). Summarize what benefits the stakeholders will derive from

    implementing the recommendations.

    Include a paragraph that covers the high priority findings and recommendations. Where

    appropriate, include the page number reference to the detailed findings and recommendations to

    which the reader may refer for additional information.

    Also include a brief summary of the risk planning, monitoring, and transition scoping activities.

    This should be a very high level discussion.]

    3.1 Overview of the Business Area

    [Describe the business focus area, including an overview of the mission of the organization.

    This should also include an overview of the target business value chain and the associated

    products and services. Reference Figure 8-1: Target Business Value

    Chain Product and Services.]

    3.2 Stakeholders including priorities

    [This section describes the stakeholders of the business focus area. The stakeholder hierarchy

    and stakeholder exchange diagrams can be included. This section should also describe which

    stakeholders were determined to be most important, and how this prioritization was developed.

    Reference Figure 8-2: Stakeholder Hierarchy Diagram and

    Figure 8-3: Stakeholder Exchange Diagram.]

    3.3 SWOT

    [The SWOT analysis is included for the high-priority stakeholders. Reference

    Figure 8-4: SWOT Analysis. ]

    3.4 Vision

    [This section describes the to-be state. Using the SWOT analysis, describe which specific

    elements of the SWOT are to be addressed as part of the Modernization Blueprint, and how these

    elements relate to the stakeholder needs.]

    3.5 Goals and Objectives

    [This section summarizes the goals and objectives of the organization with respect to eh business

    focus area. A hierarchy of goals and objectives may be included to illustrate the relationships.

    The end outcomes and intermediate outcomes will provide the basis for deriving the business

    value associated with specific recommendations. Reference Figure 8-5:

    Hierarchy of Goals and Objectives. [Organization Name] Page 8 of 22 Version 1.0

    [Business Focus Area Name] January, 2006

[Business Focus Area Line of Business Name] Modernization Blueprint

    End Outcomes (EO) are long term performance goals which describe and support the organization’s strategic goals. End Outcomes express a desired result and are measured by one or more performance measures or indicators. Performance measures indicate the success in achieving the long-term goal. Intermediate Outcomes describe and support major milestones of an annual End Outcome goal. There are two or more Intermediate Outcome Goals to every End Outcome Goal. These outcomes provide key guiding criteria and principles in identifying issues and formulating recommendations. ]

    3.6 Overview of Business Products and Services [This section includes a detailed discussion on each product and service from the Products and Service Matrix including the maturation of each written as findings and recommendations. Reference Table 8-1: Business Products and Services Matrix.]
