- The Eni Enterprise Architecture model is intended to represent:
- Applications within a production environment
- The relationships between business processes and infrastructure
Eni’s EA model contains a vast amount of information including objects, properties, logical associations between objects, and diagrams. As a result, the frequent backup and publication operation of the model utilizes a vast amount of time and memory resource for the server undertaking this procedure, meaning it becomes unavailable for normal use. To avoid any unnecessary disruption, these activities are therefore schedule to run at night.
Furthermore, a federated model has been developed for the infrastructure area to support them in capacity planning. The maintenance of this dynamic federation (alignment of shared classes between models, and updated links for navigation between the HTML publishing) is the second critical element for the maintenance of care of the whole solution.
