Enterprise Architecture Group Project Group Case Study Link Group 05's%20College%20London The above table shows the case study distribution for each group. Once the case study is finalized for each group, the students should start working on their project as follows: 1) The case studies provide a detailed background of the EA based changes that took place at each university. The group chooses one issue from the case study given to them to develop as part of their project, e.g centralization of IT resources, deployment of new student timetabling system, etc. 2) The group should design the As-Is targeting the issue they chose in point 1. Showing the changes in the two states is recommended. (To-Be was required and now deleted) 3) The group should implement the new EA design using the TOGAF ADM lifecycle. For each ADM phase the group should show at least one output. (You can refer to the following link for more assistance: 4) The group should show the design of the Data Architecture for the As-Is and To-Be states. 5) Students can make appropriate assumptions about the given issue they aim to address. 6) Each student must show the ability to convey the technical information in a such a way that it should be understood easily by non-technical audience, and contribute successfully towards the team’s tasks.

Enterprise Architecture (EA) Project

Student's Name
Institution Affiliation

Enterprise Architecture (EA) Project
From the case study, it is clear that King's College London had an issue with their IT
resources after the amalgamation of various autonomous institutions. In particular, the institution
was negatively impacted by their decentralized IT resources since their various departments
managed their own IT systems independently. As a result of the decentralization of their IT
systems, the institution faced a major challenge when recruiting new staff in the central London
location. Implementation of the decentralized IT system was a challenge to institution management
because several factors were forced to consider before making major decisions. Some of those
factors included the nature of the institution's buildings, reliability of power supply used, and
available space. Due to the decentralization of challenges facing the IT system, the College decided
to adopt a new Enterprise Architecture (EA) that encourages centralizing all IT resources. The
institution management believed that the institution would increase its operation efficiency,
enhance effectiveness, and enable the institution to have more rapid communication, enhancing
shared understanding between different previously autonomous institutions that amalgamated to
form King's College London. The issue of centralization of IT resources is a major EA process
that must be carefully addressed to enhance the institution's ability to meet its goals and objectives.
Therefore, this paper presents a designed As-Is targeting centralization of IT resources, and
discusses the implementation of the new EA design using the TOGAF ADM lifecycle, shows the
design of Data Architecture for the As-Is To-Be states, and develops appropriate assumptions
about the issue of centralization of IT resources.
