Realize Enterprise Architecture with AWS and SAFe

By: Rajnish Harjika

Overview of this book

Agile implementation of enterprise architecture (EA) in the cloud is a powerful organizational tool, but it is challenging, particularly for architects who are used to on-premises environments. This in-depth guide will tell you all you need to know to reap the benefits of applying EA in your organization to achieve operational efficiency. Starting with an overview of the foundations of enterprise architecture, you'll see how it can be applied to AWS as well as explore the frameworks AWS provides for EA, such as the AWS Well-Architected Framework. That's not all – the book shows you how these frameworks align with The Open Group Architecture Framework (TOGAF) architecture development method (ADM) and the Zachman Framework so that you can choose the right fit for your organization. As you advance, you'll learn how to apply SAFe to make your organization agile as well as efficient. Once you've gotten to grips with the theory, you can explore use cases and take a quiz at the end of the book to test yourself and see how EA is applied in practice. By the end of this enterprise architecture book, you'll have the skills and knowledge required to apply EA in the cloud with AWS and drive your organization to become super-efficient and agile.

Part 1 – Enterprise Architecture Foundation and Implementation

In this first part, you will learn about the critical core foundation components of enterprise architecture (EA) and how to relate them to the AWS cloud. This part of the book will assist you in applying EA architecture principles and domains to the AWS cloud by building the right core foundation. 

If you need help with the basic concepts of the EA core foundation or are looking to learn more about its importance, the first three chapters about the core foundation will help you to make decisions and realize business values. With this, you will learn how to achieve business agility. You’ll be in a better place to explain the building blocks of architecture to derive solutions driven by both architecture and solution building blocks.

The EA foundation and implementation help you to achieve operational efficiency and help you define the success of the core foundation.
