We asked some of our partners to talk about their views on enterprise architecture, here Inspi talk about how they see EA
In 1878 Margaret Wolfe Hungerford (née Hamilton) was widely credited with coining the saying “beauty is in the eyes of the beholder”. Fast forward to the digital world of business today and the quote still resonates. Why? Because technology has transformed all businesses into a digital business model, and now every business needs a Business Portrait to serve as a common lens or “digital mirror” of the processes and the underlying technology which enable it.
When I think of Enterprise Architecture, my mind “paints a picture” of many invaluable aspects of the Business Portrait which I feel can best be described through a series of questions, each from a different lens. Some of these questions have been highlighted in the table below:
|LENS||QUESTIONS||SERVICES & DELIVERABLES||BENEFITS|
|COMMON LENS||Do I have a single common framework (business capability) which will resonate with business and technology leaders to ensure understanding and alignment.||Definition & delivery of the Business Capability Framework
|STRATEGY||Can I easily view the capabilities of my business and quickly understand where and how innovation e.g., Artificial Intelligence can help my business to reduce costs, improve efficiency, and enhance the customer experience.||Assessment of the Business Model
||Adaptability & Alignment- Strategy to Execution
|OPERATIONS||Can I easily view the capabilities of my business and quickly understand which processes are still manual, and or poorly automated?||Assessment of the Operating Model
Identify and automate manual tasks so they can be:
|ASSET MANAGEMENT||Can I easily find, and update the people, processes, and tools necessary to sustain and grow the business?||Inventory and Health Assessment of:
|COMPLIANCE & RISK MANAGEMENT||Can I quickly respond to a request to identify where regulated data is captured, stored, or transmitted within the enterprise digital ecosystem?||Inventory of:
|REVENUE||Can I conceive of an innovative software solution and bring it to market faster than my competitors?||Inventory of:
The tricky bit is to capture all these aspects and sustain the accuracy of the data within an easy to use, shared repository. This is Essential.
