The Project developed an Enterprise Architecture for the Vanuatu Government. The first phase of the Project was to acquire a thorough understanding of the Government’s existing applications, systems and network technologies, deployed across various agencies. Based on the Government’s business and applications requirements, the next phase saw the development of an Enterprise Reference Model using the TOGAF framework as a guide.
Using the outputs from the previous phases, the Project recommended the most appropriate network and systems technology architecture and standards. Comparison with existing and proposed IT architectures identified several migration projects.
The Vanuatu Government recognised that a hallmark of successful E‐Governments is a comprehensive, universally accepted Enterprise Architecture (EA) framework that defines interoperability standards for ensuring IT systems and data are secure and can be integrated, with optimal ICT investment efficiency.
The Project followed the construction of the Governments MPLS Broadband Network (GBN), which was a major initiative for the Government and the people of Vanuatu.
The Project included the following deliverables and services:
- Technical review of the Government’s IT systems and network architecture, including identification of issues that can be addressed in the short term;
- Conceptual design for the new IT Architecture;
- Identification of a programme of works for migrating the existing environment to the new IT Architecture;
- An Enterprise Architecture Reference Model; and
- General IT Consultancy and participation in the Government’s IT Technical Advisory Group.
