Architecture planning and governance embedded in the solution delivery process

EAM and SOA practice established in a down-to-earth, highly collaborative manner within the teams of Oman Telecommunications Company S.A.O.G.. Atoll helped to define, test and fine-tune the practice and supplied SAMU as an EA and service repository and planning tool, 2011.
In the past, we initiated a number of projects that were related to transformation. I am very pleased to say that our project with Atoll has successfully met the requirements and produced the deliverables that brought value to the organization.

The Challenge

Omantel had developed a complex architecture over the years. Business requirements needed to be satisfied quicker as competition was increasing. Business required a sharp reduction in IT solution development time in order to bring new products and services to market faster, while controlling the risks of changes better.

The Solution

Emerging business demands are channeled to enterprise architects. They create a project architecture plan together with business analysts and other IT areas collaboratively for each demand. Plans live together with the projects and are used for decision making, budgeting, governance, and change approvals. Architecture plans are built in SAMU by reusing existing architecture elements and creating new ones.


Project scoping time saved


Changes due to wrong scoping saved


Changes with impact assessed in advance

Mitigate risk, faster time to market

Detailed change impact analysis

Change managers generate impact analysis reports when planning changes on components. Decisions and approvals are made with a full understanding of the possible impact and how risks can be mitigated.

Joint planning of project architecture design

Demands are translated into high-level architecture plans in the repository. Visual architecture diagrams implement a common understanding of goals, scope and responsibilities across the enterprise.
