Selecting a Scenario Template 

PISA can be used to develop, secure and evaluate IT plans and integrated architectures for a wide range of real-life business scenarios. The following table  illustrates a few business scenarios in terms of the following two broad factors:

-       Business services (new or existing)

-       Organizational units (new or existing)

Please review these scenarios. If a particular scenario fits your situation, then click on it to select it as a scenario template. The template will give you step-by-step guidelines about how to use the different PISA advisors to fit your situation. Keep in mind that these templates provide general suggestions to get you started. After some experience with the tool, you will be able to customize these templates and find better and quicker ways of accomplishing your tasks.
