Actual exam question from The Open Group's OG0-092
Question #: 3
Topic #: 1
[All OG0-092 Questions]

Scenario: AGEX Inc.
AGEX is a large, global commodities trading company which has been growing rapidly through a series of acquisitions.
Each new business is performing well in its markets. However, the lack of integration between headquarters and the business units has increasingly caused problems in the handling of customer and financial information. The inability to share information across businesses has resulted in lost opportunities to "leverage the synergies" that had been intended when the businesses were acquired. At present, each business unit maintains its own applications. Despite an earlier initiative to install a common application to manage customer, products, supplier, and inventory information, each business unit has different ways of defining each of these core elements and has customized the common application to the point where the ability to exchange information is difficult, costly, and error-prone.
As a result, AGEX has begun implementing a single Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system to consolidate information from several applications that exist across the lines of business. The Corporate Board is concerned that the new ERP system must be able to manage and safeguard customer information in a manner that meets or exceeds the legal requirements of the countries in which the company operates. This will be an increasingly important capability as the company expands its online services offered to clients and trading partners.
The CIO has formed an Enterprise Architecture department, and one of the primary goals in its charter is to coordinate efforts between the ERP implementation team and the business unit personnel who will be involved in the migration process. The CIO has also formed a cross-functional Architecture Review Board to oversee and govern the architecture.
After reviewing the available alternatives, and based on recommendations from the ERP vendor, AGEX has selected TOGAF 9 as the basis for its Enterprise
Architecture program.
The CIO has endorsed this choice with the full support of top management.
You are serving as the Chief Architect.
You have been asked to recommend the approach to take in the Preliminary Phase to ensure that the Corporate Board's concern is addressed.
Based on TOGAF 9, which of the following is the best answer?

  • A. You evaluate the implications of the Board's concern in terms of regulatory and security policy requirements. You then update the AGEX security policy to reflect the concern, ensuring that this policy is communicated across the organization. You allocate a security architecture team to ensure that security considerations are included in ongoing architecture planning. You then assess the security implications and agreements within the AGEX businesses and their suppliers.
  • B. You evaluate the implications of the Board's concern in terms of regulatory requirements and their impact on business goals and objectives. Based on this understanding, you then issue a Request for Architecture Work to commence an architecture development project to develop a solution that will address the Board's concern. You allocate a security architect to oversee the implementation of the solution in the ERP system that is being developed.
  • C. You start by clarifying the intent that the Board has for raising this concern. This enables you to understand the implications of the concern in terms of regulatory requirements and the potential impact on current business goals and objectives. You propose that a security architect or security architecture team be allocated to develop comprehensive security architecture.
  • D. You evaluate the implications of the Board's concern by examining the potential impacts on business goals and objectives. Based on your understanding, you then update the current AGEX security policy to include an emphasis on the Board's concern. In addition, you allocate a security architect to ensure that security considerations are included in the architecture planning for all domains.

A and D are similar, but A is better because it includes the assessment of impacts on business units and third parties (assess the security implications and agreements within the AGEX businesses and their suppliers), which is a part of "Scope the Enterprise Organizations Impacted" step.

Architecture Principles & Enterprise Scope are a key component/aspects of Preliminary phase . The question is focused only on the Architecture planning phase and not other phases. Option D is incorrect because of the following “Based on your understanding” Option C is incorrect because this is generic answer and no TOGAF specific methods/tools mentioned Option B is incorrect because of “Based on this understanding, you then issue a Request for Architecture Work to commence an architecture development project to develop a solution that will address the Board's concern” Hence the most appropriate answer is A where it talks about Security policy – communicating the policy& including suppliers as well ( this is related to the Scope of Enterprise aspect which is a key element in Preliminary Phase)

A Chief Architect neither issues a 'Request for Architecture' nor does [s]he allocates a Security Architect or Architecture Team. Allocating resources is a function of portfolio and capability managers. Therefore, the correct answer is C.

A is definitely not correct. Not of the items listed are part of the preliminary steps listed in the TOGAF 9.2 spec (chapter 5.3) B has the potential to be correct but you would not break out a separate project to address this. As such as “Request for Architecture Work” would not be issued. C: This has potential to be correct but D is better as it helps to ensure that security is “baked in” since it mentions “that security consideration are included in the architecture planning for all domains”. As such, D is the best answer.
