Enterprise architecture

The enterprise architecture work related to the Museum 2015 Project has been implemented by the enterprise architecture working group, the main output of which is the enterprise architecture description ("Museoiden kokoelmahallinnan kokonaisarkkitehtuuri 1.0") published in the beginning of 2013. The publication discusses the collection management of professionally administered museums in Finland: systems, agents and responsibilities, standards, processes and operating instructions, as well as equipment, information networks, services, interfaces and technical requirements. The enterprise architecture description have also included a vision of the desired goal, development paths and future operating environments.

CSC - IT Centre for Science Ltd. has participated in the enterprise architecture work and it has been drawn up using the Kartturi 2.0 model. Changes caused by the new collection management system will be updated in conjunction with the maintenance of the architecture model, which will continue throughout the project.

The enterprise architecture description 1.0 is aimed at museum and information management professionals involved in collection management. Lists of information resources and systems demonstrate what kinds of information the museums possess and what tools are used to manage it. The enterprise architecture focuses on those subareas, the implementation of which, will promote the interoperability of collection management at museums. The principles of the architecture are well-suited as a foundation for strategic work performed by the museums. In addition, the museums may freely utilise and apply the enterprise architecture process descriptions and tables used in the listing of various information resources in their own architecture descriptions.

The purpose of the enterprise architecture work has been to create an overview of the museum sector's collection management as a whole and develop practices and synergy as well as advance the diverse utilisation of information and communication technologies in collection management work. The collection management enterprise architecture is subdivided into four sub-architectures: these are the business, data, application and technical architectures. The collection management enterprise architecture is also connected to several stakeholder architectures. These include the National Digital Library (KDK) enterprise architecture and civil service enterprise architectures (the municipal sector, the State).
