Recently, at a Mobile Monday event, I heard about DiCoDE, a framework developed by Fabian Tilmant.
I immediately noticed some similiarities between DiCoDE and my eReading Reference Architecture (eRRA) method. The “eReading content life cycle” can be mapped to the DiCoDE model. In the eRRA methodology we also work on 2 additional topics: the Business Goals and the Entreprise/ICT Architecture.
DiCoDE complements the architecture by providing a kind of “Generic Media Business Process Template”.
I might sound a little bit “Chinese” but it isn’t. These are just techniques to make sure your new Media initiatives will succeed
Combinig DiCoDE and eRRA could achieve great results. Here would be a possible modus-operandi :
(Note the eRRA methodology can be applied on all kind of Media, not only on eReading. If the “eReader” is a Tablet, there is much more to do than just “read” on the “eReader Tier”.)
In order to illustrate a litle bit step 3 I have taken the DiCoDE building blocks and drawn them in an Architectural Overview over the 4 eRRA tiers.
If you want to give it a try (DiCoDE and/or eRRA), just contact us:
If you immediately want to know mode about the eRRA, you can get the eBook here :
The DiCoDE ebook is not ready yet, so you’ll have to point your browser here :
“(ArchiMate® Extension for Modeling and Managing Motivation, Principles
and Requirements in TOGAF
A White Paper by: Dick Quartel, Wilco Engelsman, Henk Jonkers)
specifies a Motivation aspect, and adds the following objects:
Stakeholder, Concern, Assessment, Goal, Principle, Requirement, as
well as some new relations. This would make a great addon. “
Great ! If such an extension is added, that would allow me to use only one method instead of combining KAOS and Archimate in the eRRA methodology.
