UNISA Systems Engineering Talk Series – Enhancing Enterprise Architecture with Resilience Perspective
Wednesday, August 18 from 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm
This event is based in South Australia and organised by the University of South Australia, it will be available to SESA members across the country online.
Join us with LCDR Jnitova who will present on enhancing enterprise architecture with resilience perspective.
The research literature has found current Enterprise Architecture (EA) methods are limited in dealing with uncertainty and pathologies of complex systems to enable design and operation of a resilient enterprise. To some extent, EAs’ approaches persist in applying textbook plans and activities in the face of mounting evidence of changing circumstances and the challenges of uncertainty. They rely on a qualitative shift in assessment, priorities, or response strategy, that often lead to a ‘failure to adapt adequately.’ To address this gap in EA resilience representation, we have combined several prior research proposals to produce a wholistic Department of Defence Architecture Framework (DoDAF) resilience architecture and enhanced that with our original underpinning resilience framework. Despite still being in an ongoing major case study, our comprehensive resilience representation shows promise of assisting all enterprise stakeholders with adapting this representation to their capability systems. Doing so will better incorporate resilience considerations in capability systems’ design and likely help capability stakeholders to evolve capability systems with appropriate levels of resilience throughout their life cycle.
LCDR Jnitova is a PhD student in the School of Engineering and Information Technology, University of New South Wales, in Canberra, with her research project focused on organisational resilience. Her current role as the OIC Training Support and Governance provides an ample opportunity to support the study. In 2016 LCDR Jnitova has completed with excellence a Master of Systems Engineering at UNSW@ADFA. She also graduated from the UNSW@ADFA with a Master of Business; from the UTS with a Graduate Diploma in Education; and from the Byelorussian State University with a Bachelor of Chemistry and Biology. She has authored and co-authored a number of journal articles and conference papers in organisational and workforce planning and management contexts.
