Once the future state vision for the organisation’s IT and Business (with suitable principles) is in place, it becomes necessary for day-by-day design guidance to be given to development projects. This is required on 2 levels — guidelines to be employed by the business process designers, and in turn the IT solution designers. The benefit is that the entire process and system creation and enhancement effort should comply with sound practices and design methods from the architecture, rather than each step being taken as a single event with design on an ad hoc design approach.
