Towards Risk-aware Scheduling of Enterprise Architecture Roadmaps

Christophe Ponsard, Fabian Germeau, Gustavo Ospina

Abstract

Enterprises need to keep their organisation aligned with their business objectives. Enterprise Architecture provides a way to identify the current and target states as well as defining the evolution roadmap taking the form of a complex project portfolio. Conducting changes requires to deal with the occurrence of several risks at the project level which can affect strategic decisions. This paper investigates how to optimally deal with such risks in the global scheduling process. We start by identifying and structuring risks and projects concepts based on a domain model. We then identify a set of risks and related management scenarios. Experiments in risk control are carried out using two local search optimisation tools able to consider risk information in addition with inter-project and resource dependencies. We show the feasibility of efficiently anticipating risks and even dynamically adapting the scheduling. A dedicated focus is set on specific characteristics of IT projects.
