Abstract

If companies want to be competitive they undoubtedly have to manage IS evolution and IS architecture. EDF, the French state utility, has developed its own architecture method called DASIBAO. DASIBAO is based on two standards: OMG’s MDA and ISO/RM-ODP. DASIBAO provides guidelines for architecture design from capturing user needs to system implementation. DASIBAO progressive steps helps to choose between architecture scenarios and to keep track of these choices. This track enables to asses the impacts of any IS evolution and to limit them to the bare minimum. This article presents the use of DASIBAO through an example related to customer relationship. DASIBAO has been applied at EDF in various projects and is now on its start to be used on a large scale.
