Design the intelligent organization.

To achieve growth and competitive advantage at times of economic uncertainty, CEOs are turning their enterprises into intelligent organizations. 

EA & Technology Innovation Leaders will need to design intelligent business and operating models by increasing their focus on information architecture, continuous support of innovation, agile and security architecture, and using family of technologies related to intelligence - such as AI and machine learning. This will enable the organization to: 

  • Bring order out of chaos by identifying patterns in seemingly complex and intractable business problems.

  • Respond rapidly to change in the internal or external business environment far faster than humans can alone.

  • Learn and adapt by creating and evolving their own models of the internal or external business environment.

  • Reinvent work, replacing some roles and augmenting others.
