Nationstate Insurance Case Study

Read the Nationstate Case Study on pages 160-164 in the textbook. Expalnation and Answer Discussion Questions 1-2 at the end of the Case Study. Your responses must be complete, detailed and in APA format.

1 ,List and describe all of the potential benefits (and costs) that Nationstate would realize from the establishment of an enterprise wide architecture as envisioned by Jane Denton?

2,  Build a business case for Seamus O’Malley to present to the senior management team at Nationstate to get their buy-in. In addition to benefits and costs, the business case must answer the “what’s in it for me” question that the BU 3presidents all have.

Seamus O’Malley is rightfully worried about governance (i.e., making sure that the enterprise architectural standards are adopted by all Bus).  Both he and Jane are wary of forced compliance because such measures lead to “architecture police.”  What governance procedures could they put in place that would win “hearts and minds”; that is, BU architects would comply with the enterprise architecture standards because they believe in them – not because they are forced to comply with them?
