White Paper
(Dynamic SystemsDevelopment Method)
(The Open Group ArchitectureFramework)
 ______________ A joint publication of the DSDM Consortiumand The Open Group Architecture Forum
Executive Summary
As Information Systems grow across departmental, division boundariesand even inter-company, the need to have a coherent technology strategyacross the diverse business areas increases in order to ensure efficiency,robustness and business agility in the business and information systems.If you consider the situation just after desktop PCs became popular,isolated pockets of data were developed that were embedded in a varietyof proprietary formats and the only way to share the data was by printingreports from one application and maybe typing it in again to another.Businesses soon realised the inefficiency of this and, at some cost,implemented policies for common office automation packages.It is considered that the inefficiencies that can be caused by havingdiverse underlying technologies that do not interoperate are possibly anorder of magnitude higher than just having data in differing proprietaryformats.However, the task of implementing a coherent technology strategy couldbe orders of magnitude more difficult for those tasked with this activity.This paper aims to show that using a combination of the Dynamic SystemsDevelopment Method (DSDM) Framework and The Open GroupArchitecture Framework will help discover what architecture is currently inplace, what architecture is needed that supports technology diversity andflexibility, and aid the projects defined for implementing the chosenarchitecture.
This Executive Summary lists the main similarities and differencesbetween DSDM and TOGAF. Following the Executive Summary, the WhitePaper gives a brief description of the two frameworks in isolation and thenexplains in detail where facets of each should be considered for use in theother.
