Enterprise Architecture:

With wave after wave of innovation, the digital way of business continues to transform organizations, from the inside out. Enterprise architecture and technology innovation leaders are key enablers for digital business and are accountable for helping the enterprise balance the risks and benefits of digital business innovation.

 

Your enterprise architecture (EA) practice should be focused on supporting both the operational and the strategic direction of your business – sometimes through change and disruption, and sometimes in spite of it. Chief Architects must have an in-depth knowledge of technical systems, but they also must have the strategic vision to improve business outcomes through innovation and the ability to influence partners, customers, suppliers, and the broader ecosystem of that vision.

EA’s new opportunity in supporting digital business innovation will mean:
  • Enterprise architects need to develop skills and techniques to help incorporate inclusiveness of business technology perceptions, and clearly value the EA expertise and expectations of business peers.
  • The enterprise architect's personal leadership style must be honed to achieve success beyond pure EA technical expertise.
  • Enterprise architects must help bridge the gap between organizational readiness and IT practitioner skepticism through valuing IT practitioner autonomy and responsibility for decision making.
  • The enterprise architect can help the CIO play a key role in the transition of the organization toward a digital business, through the use of key technology trends, by working closely with business peers and by tying strategy to execution.
