Pattern

A Generic Pattern is a set of Generic Functions that define the possible behaviour of (part of) an infrastructure Product/Solution. A Generic Pattern describes an archetypical architecture of a solution, being technology and implementation and organization agnostic. One ore more Generic Patterns serve as archetypes for the modelling of a Applied Pattern, that outlines a solution at the Functional Design level. It houses the general description of the intended functionality of the Applied Patterns based upon it. The full set of Generic Patterns form the universal and basic structure of all Infrastructure Landscapes. A clickable map of the Generic Patterns that together form the archetype of the Infrastructure Landscape is depicted below:

Generic Pattern Function Mandatory GFs Optional GFs Sector Maturity
Access Distribution Provides smart access to back-end facilities, providing services such as caching, health/capacity based load balancing etc. J.A.H. Schoonderbeek 3
Access Security Controls and secures (external) user connections with back-end facilities and applications J.A.H. Schoonderbeek 3
Application Hosting Accommodates (business) applications and services ?S.A.D. Jumelet? 3
Content Hosting Hosts content and makes it available in a suitable form(s) to users J.A.H. Schoonderbeek 3
Streams Management A generic pattern to send out and/or receive data in time-dependent streams, such as audio, video or gaming information J.A.H. Schoonderbeek 3
Message Handling Provides transport, storage and delivery of messages S.A.D. Jumelet 3
Orchestration Provides facilities to create, execute and control automated (business/application) workflows S.A.D. Jumelet 2
User Workspace Comprises a set of facilities that offer a digital workspace to end-users, that enables them to use and access applications and/or communicate with other end-users S.A.D. Jumelet 3
Authentication & Authorization Secures usage of facilities and applications by validating identities and permissions J.A.H. Schoonderbeek 3
Data Management Provides preservation, retrieval, manipulation and management of strictly structured data, such as databases ?J.A.H. Schoonderbeek? 3
Data Transport Comprises a set of facilities to transport data between automated systems J.A.H. Schoonderbeek 2
Data Zone Protection Controls and secures data exchange between two data transport zones J.A.H. Schoonderbeek 3
File Storage Carries out the storage and retrieval of loosely structured data at a single, logical location; can provide advanced functionality ("intelligence") to administrators and/or users. J.A.H. Schoonderbeek 4
Raw Storage Carries out the storage and retrieval of "raw bits" data at a single, logical location; optionally provides advanced functionality ("intelligence") to administrators and/or users. J.A.H. Schoonderbeek 4
Facilities Deployment Provides a set of facilities to automate the deployment and administration of platforms, applications and/or configurations S.A.D. Jumelet 3
Facilities Monitoring Comprises a set of facilities to enable centralized and intelligent monitoring of automated systems, either or both for system health care and security purposes S.A.D. Jumelet 3
Identity & Permission Management Provides consistent deployment and management of identity stores and/or permission registers J.A.H. Schoonderbeek 3
