Enterprise Continuum Q1-5, Architecture Repository Q6-10

1.What best describes the Enterprise Continuum? - D - Is a view of the Architecture Repository that provides methods for classifying architecture and solution artefacts

2. From left to right select the correct order of the Enterprise Continuum pieces - E - Foundation, Common, Industry, Organisation-Specific Architectures

3. Where would the following sit within the Enterprise Continuum - a data model representing the business functions and processes specific to a particular vertical , such as Retail 's“Active Store” architecture, or an  Architecture that incorporates the Petrotechnical Open Software Corporation (POSC) data model - D - Industry Architecture 

4. Which Enterprise Continuum Solutions provide highly generic concepts, tools, products, services, and solution components that are the fundamental providers of capabilities - B - Foundation Solutions

5. What does IIIRM mean? - A - Integrated Information Infrastructure Reference Model
6. Which one of the following correctly shows Architecture Repository components -A - Architecture Landscape, Governance Log, Architecture Capability, Standards Information Base, Reference Library

7.  At a high level, how many classes of architectural information are expected to be held within an Architecture Repository? - E - Six At a high level, six classes of architectural information are expected to be held within an Architecture Repository:

The Architecture Metamodel describes the organizationally tailored application of an architecture framework, including a method for architecture development and a metamodel for architecture content.
The Architecture Capability defines the parameters, structures, and processes that support governance of the Architecture Repository.
The Architecture Landscape shows an architectural view of the building blocks that are in use within the organization today (e.g., a list of the live applications). The landscape is likely to exist at multiple levels of granularity to suit different architecture objectives.
The Standards Information Base captures the standards with which new architectures must comply, which may include industry standards, selected products and services from suppliers, or shared services already deployed within the organization.
The Reference Library provides guidelines, templates, patterns, and other forms of reference material that can be leveraged in order to accelerate the creation of new architectures for the enterprise.
The Governance Log provides a record of governance activity across the enterprise.
The relationships between these areas of the Architecture Repository are shown in Overview

8. The three levels of the architecture landscape consist of - D - Strategic, Segment, Capability
