Enterprise Information Architecture and a Year 2000 Project

In turning business and IT strategies into architectural proposals, Canadian Tire Corporation has developed a suite of tools called AIE that deploys the architectural principles and guidelines needed to support the framework to all IT areas. The Year 2000 programme utilises a similar framework.

This development work is a living process that goes from requirements to a workable solution. Its main principle is to guarantee a common meta-data and easy access, in a simple and organized view of documents and project deliverables. This session describes the framework, the organisation aspects and different roles involved in the process, and includes a prototype demonstration.
