An enterprise comprises multiple views such as strategy/version n, strategy/version n+1, concept, analysis, design, implementation, structure, behavior, and input/output data views. A systems model is required to describe and represent all these multiple views. The systems model describes and represents the enterprise multiple views possibly using two different approaches. The first one is the non-architectural approach and the second one is the architectural approach. The non-architectural approach respectively picks a model for each view. The architectural approach, instead of picking many heterogeneous and unrelated models, will use only one single multiple views coalescence (MVC) architecture model.
In general, MVC architecture is said to be synonymous with the enterprise architecture. Since structure and behavior views are the two most prominent ones among multiple views, integrating the structure and behavior views becomes a superb approach for integrating multiple views of an enterprise. In other words, structure-behavior coalescence (SBC) leads to the coalescence of multiple views. Therefore, we conclude that SBC architecture is also said to be synonymous with the enterprise architecture.
Enterprise architecture is emerging as an important discipline for enterprise modeling and architecting. This book focuses on the SBC architecture which consists of a) SBC architecture description language (SBC-ADL), b) SBC architecture development method (SBC-ADM), and c) SBC view model (SBC-VM).
Enterprise architecture used for enterprise modeling and architecting is on the rise. By this book’s penetrating introduction and elaboration, all readers shall clearly understand how the SBC architecture helps enterprise architects effectively construct fruitful enterprise architectures.
