It’s been a while since I was blogging regularly. The reason: I was in a ship cycle. As we approached our deadline for delivery of a comprehensive end-to-end information model for information technology, more and more of my time was spent focusing on the details.
Is it explained well enough? Are all of the connections correct? Have I captured all of the reviewers’ feedback?
In the end, the MS IT Common Conceptual Model is a set of domain models, all integrated with one another:
- Business Motivation
- Business Architecture and IT Alignment
- Business Program Management
- Business Process Management
- IT Project Management
- Service Level Management
- Analysis and Requirements Management (incl. Traceability)
- IT Software Development and Testing
- IT Software Deployment (Service Transition)
- Application Monitoring and Mitigation
- Operational Traceability and Notification
It has taken over a year of hard work, first by Bob Sturm to lay the groundwork and then by myself to roll the model to an initial version, to get to this date. Whew!
I’m sure I’ll still be involved with this, and I may end up writing a book about it, but for the most part, I’m done!
We shipped. On to the next thing…
