Overview

This section explains
the
scope

of this guide
,
describes
the intended audience

and suggests

how the
y

might

use this
guide
, and summar
izes

how this guide is structured
.

Scope of This Guide

This
guide
provides information about

design
ing

a logical architecture for an enterprise platform that
is based on Microsoft
®

technologies and that optimizes

the Saving M
oney

solution area
. It also
contains references to other
resources
that describe how to design a physical architecture and how to
plan for developing and deploying the designed platform.

U
se the information in this
guide
in the context of business needs and
integrated

capability
requirements that the Microsoft Optimization
solution area

for
Saving Money

discusses. This
solution
area

helps structure conversations with
sales

executives and IT managers to better understand their
business
drivers

and priorities,
discuss potential
business capabilities
, and design and deploy a robust
enterprise platform that supports the solution.

Who Should Read This Guide

This
guide
is for solution implementation team members who specify and plan an enterprise platform
that
optim
izes
sav
ing

money
. Solution implementation team members typically include business
analysts, solution architects, platform architects, infrastructure architects, IT infrastructure managers,
and IT operations managers.

How to Use This Guide

This
guide
provi
des useful information about a
n

integrated

capability analysis
, which is a structured
process for validating the requirements, specifying the design, and planning to develop and deploy an
enterprise architecture.

Section Summaries

This
guide
has four major

sections:



Customizing Your Solution
:

This section provides an approach to us
ing

the remaining sections of
this document and other Optimization
solution area

materials to validate requirements, specify the
design, and plan to develop and deploy an enterpri
se architecture that meets your specific needs.



Phase 1
:

This section provides the definition; Optimization mapping; technology mapping; logical
architecture; illustrative physical architecture; system components; and references to plan, develop,
and deplo
y
Phase 1
.



Phase 2
:

This section provides the definition; Optimization mapping; technology mapping; logical
architecture; illustrative physical architecture; system components; and references to plan, develop,
and deploy
Phase 2
.



Phase 3
:

This section provides the definition; Optimization mapping; technology mapping; logical
architecture; illustrative physical architecture; system components; and references to plan, develop,
and deploy
Phase 3
.

Customizing Your Solution

This section provi
des an approach to us
ing

this document and other Optimization
solution area

materials to validate requirements, specify the design, and plan to develop and deploy an enterprise
architecture that
saves money.

Why Customize?

This document and the other Optim
ization
solution area

materials define three illustrative solution
phase
s

that increase in complexity and potential business value:
Phase 1
,
Phase 2
, and
Phase 3
. Each
solution
phase

specifies
business capabilities

that map to the Optimization maturity mod
els,
architecture diagrams, and technologies.

The definitions of these three illustrative solutions are quite robust, so it is likely that no solution
exactly matches your particular needs because your business has:



Specific priorities of
business
driver
s.




Specific priorities of
business capabilities
.



Existing architecture and initiatives in your environment.

The Customization Process

The following steps

help

to
ensure a resulting
technology
platform that is robust, agile, and
manageable
. You can use the

solution phases as starting points as you complete these steps
:

1.

Understand your priorities
.

2.

Choose a starting point
.

3.

Adjust the Optimization mapping
.

4.

Adjust the logical architecture
.

5.

Design the physical architecture and plan
.

Understand Y
our Priorities

The first step i
s

to clearly understand, document, and baseline
your

priorities.

You can use t
he Business
Priorities
Guide

for
a solution area

to discuss, capture, and baseline the relevance and priority of
specific

business

drivers

and potential
business
capabilities
.

Figure 1

illustrates an example where:



The business driver, “Optimize sales cycle,” is the first priority.



Red text emphasizes the compelling business capabilities that address the organization’s specific
needs.

Choose a Starting Point

Based on your priorities,
Phase 2

is the starting point for this example because it is the least advanced
solution that covers the first
-
priority
business capability
.

Adjust the
Optimization
Mapping

Review and adjust the Optimization mapping that corresponds to the starting
-
point solution. You can
remove capabilities that you do not need and change the maturity levels for the capabilities.

Figure
2

illustrates this process for the specific
business capability

priorities. In this figure:

Adjusting your
solution’s Optimization mapping


Tips

for adjusting your solution’s
O
ptimization

mapping:



For capabilities that may

not match the specific requirement for your customized solution (that is,
capabilities that are marked with an asterisk [*]):



Refer to the
Optimization

model definitions.



Consider using an alternate maturity level that corresponds to your requirements, as

Figure 3
shows.



Remove items in a capability that you do not need
.

Figure 3


Using an alternate maturity level



Architecture Guide


Page

of
135



For capabilities that may not be relevant (that is, capabilities that are marked with a question mark
[?]):



Identify, document, and discuss
how a capability might be relevant.



Identify the Core capabilities that may not be critically relevant, as Figure 4 shows.

Figure 4


Identifying a Core capability that is not critically relevant


Server Security

helps protect and secure the server infrast
ructure at the data center from viruses, spam,
malware, and other intrusions.

Adjust the Logical Architecture

After you identify a stable set of
business capabilities

and corresponding required Optimization
capability maturity levels, you can adjust the te
chnology mapping, logical architecture, and system
components of the starting
-
point solution
phase

to remove what you do not need.

Design the Physical Architecture and Plan

From the system components list that you adjusted, you can refer to the correspondi
ng lists to design
a specific physical architecture that meets your needs and environment and to plan how to develop
and deploy your customized platform.

.

Envision

This section provides
the
definition

of Phase 1

and other usef
ul information, such as starting points, to
help you envisi
on your solution’s definition,
Optimization mapping, and technology mapping.

Definition

Phase 1

is a
robust, enterprise
-
class deployment that
addresses the following goals:



Focusing on
the most typ
ical compelling business priorities.



U
sing the new platform with high visibility, leading to positive return on investment.

The conceptual architecture diagram in

Figure
5 represents the collective set of
business cap
abilities

that
Phase 1

includes.

This section describes the integrated capabilities of the Phase 1 solution. Organizations can use this
section to better understand which integrated capabilities they need to customize
for

the solution to
meet specific business needs.

Organizations that re
quire a Saving Money solution in Phase 1 need to enable stakeholders to view,
gather, and collaboratively act on data for financial and budgeting processes through portals that have
workflow capabilities.

Employees gain insight into specific tasks through
role
-
based, easy
-
to
-
use
applications. Data is created, captured, and stored electronically through electronic forms to eliminate
manual errors and ensure data integrity. To encourage focus on continual improvement, contextual
inferences are presented throu
gh scorecards and self
-
service reports. A centralized, collaborative
proposal
-
document library enables operational collaboration from both headquarters and remote
locations, which can lower costs and increase efficiency. Content
-
centric social computing ca
pabilities
enable the organization to provide a low
-
cost marketing platform.

system components for
Phase 1
, which are useful

starting points to help you design your solution.

Logical Architecture

Figure 7 is the logical architecture diagram that shows
the

infrastructure
