Experience

Business Process analyst

globalSOF Holdings Pte Ltd; Brunei Aug 2013 - Jan 2015

I have modelled processes in Archimate, for a government project with Senior Consultants & Enterprise Architects to create a software blueprint. I modelled these Business Architecture & Processes using the TOGAF Principles.

MIS2 (Ministry of Education — Brunei Darussalam)

MIS2 was a phase2 project of bringing business processes in the education sector to a digital platform. The target of phase2 were Secondary Schools & Universities. I was involved in requirements gathering, designing of business process in accordance to their government policies. I assisted in the analysis with the Enterprise Architects and modelled their As-Is & To-Be Business Processes.

Over 100 Business Processes Modelled in Archimate 2.1

Method of work

I would usually draw the initial model sketches from listening to pre-recorded audio and written documents before the need to conduct a live interview. The workflow would be something alone these lines:

  1. Received initial documents
  2. Draft initial sketch and provide questions
  3. Receive answers to questions and Conduct interview
  4. Finalise sketch and wait for model feedback
  5. Re-draw model (considered to be minor revision) until both parties are satisfied

An important note here is that, once I have received the feedback from the initial sketches. I will make the necessary changes to reflect the accuracy of the process recorded. Obviously its not going to correct the very first time, thus there is a limited number of minor revisions that would not be charged, it is free.

However to avoid getting into a infinite loop of minor revisions, once the free limit has reached each minor revision is charged.

Once we have agreed on the final model, it is considered delivered. Thereafter if any changes are required, it will be considered as a Major revision, and the fees for that will apply.

Pricing

The price below applies for both offsite (purely online) and onsite (person-to-person). The only difference would be that, if it is onsite based project, accommodation and other travel related cost would have be absorbed by the client. We can negotiate on this matter.

Item Price Free of Charge
1 ArchiMate Model SGD$ 1,000 5 minor revision
1 Certified ArchiMate Model SGD$ 2,000 9 minor revisions
1 Minor Revision SGD$ 33 na
1 Major Revision SGD$ 99 na

prices are subjected to change and will be finalised upon agreement

Difference between ArchiMate Model and Certified ArchiMate Modelled

Certification cost money and time. For certified models, I would have followed the rules of the modelling language to my best of ability inline with the context, and I would also provide you with a valid Certification Number which can be indicated under each deliverable.

Whereas a non-certified model, would mean that I have followed all the rules of the modelling language to my best of ability inline with the context. However I do not provide my Certification Number under each deliverable.

Must I choose Certified ArchiMate Model ?

Not really, it all depends on your project and context. If the project is for internal purposes, you would not need to be this stringent and having some % of error in the modelling would sometimes be of benefit. As not all stakeholders would understand the intricate details of the model, and you are more concerned about getting the message across and documenting the process. For such scenarios, the non-certified models will be perfectly fine.
