<< step 1 || step 3 >>

After having the overview over the main processes (step 1) we will have a look into the IT landscape.

The main task is to identify gaps, redundancies or missing interfaces in the IT landscape. To get a clear picture about this we use the method of modeling a process application map (model type IT landscape).

The context for this model are processes (step 1), Users (or organizational units) and IT applications. All on a more or less high level.

In the show case we have:

  • 2 user groups: end users and regatta administrators
  • 3 process clusters: regatta / declaration management, regatta evaluation, publication of results
  • 2 existing IT systems velumNG and Excel marked green

We can also identify that there is a gap (marked red) in the process support: the both processes regatta / declaration management and publication of results are not supported. This is a gap the application jointherace.net is placed. You can see it red marked in the model.

Conclusion - what do we have after step 2?

  1. A big picture of our process landscape 
  2. An overview about existing IT applications
  3. A big picture about the to-be IT landscape and process support
  4. An idea about interfaces between the IT applications
  5. Possible modules for the new IT application (jointherace.net)

... and this is quite a lot!!
