A description of the The IBM Service Delivery and Process Automation (SPA) Reference Architecture has been posted.
A Reference Architecture (RA) provides a blueprint of a to-be-model with a well-defined scope, requirements it satisfies, and architectural decisions it realizes. By delivering best practices in a standardized, methodical way, an RA ensures consistency and quality across development and delivery projects. It consists of a set of work products, defining requirements, functional and operational aspects. The IBM Service Delivery and Process Automation (SPA) Reference Architecture is a blueprint to guide IBM development teams and field practitioners in the design of a service process automation solution. It was created using the collective experiences from many engagements and the implementation within IBM and its customers.
Consider engaging services to help evaluate current or future deployments of products that help automate process deployment. The current reference architecture contains Tivoli Application Dependency Discovery Manager, Tivoli Provisioning Manager, Tivoli Provisioning Manager for OS Deployment, Tivoli Change and Configuration Management Database, and Tivoli Service Request Manager. This reference deployment architecture will continue to evolve and add products in the space over time.
