The following information is contained in the Issues Catalogue

Issues: – Issue item name
Org Scope: – The organisation it impacts
Issue Source: – Issues reporter
Status:- The status of the issue
Last Modified:- Date of the most recent changes to the issue item
Impacting:- The strategic requirement the issue impacts. This can be linked to any architectural element(s) (Business, Information/Data, Application and/or Technology) in the landscape


The issues catalogue provides a list of known issues and the elements that they impact. This allows organisations to understand the issues that might impact a Strategic Plan or Project, or an element that is
being updated, for example an Application or Business Process so it can be addressed.
