Enterprise Architecture

Any successful business starts with a clear vision and purpose. Business leaders translate vision and purpose into strategies and plans, ensuring everyone in the business knows how each aspect of their role contributes to achieving the vision. This approach also informs the application of technology.

Enterprise Architecture provides a framework to translate business vision, purpose, strategies and requirements into a series of plans that provide a roadmap for the introduction or change of technology to support the chosen business direction.

Just as an Architect designs and plans new homes and buildings, or prepares changes to existing facilities, enterprise architecture provides the varying levels of information required to build or transform a business. The enterprise architecture output is matched to the size and complexity of the business, just as an architect designing a house will produce different outcomes to an architect designing an office tower.

The enterprise architecture therefore plays an important role in business decision-making.

So, why have an Enterprise Architecture?

·      Effective management and exploitation of information through IT is key to business success

·      Good information management is a competitive advantage

·      Fragmented, poorly understood, difficult to change IT systems do not meet the needs of business

·      Without an enterprise architecture, investment in Information Technology becomes focused on system maintenance and tactical developments, rather than enabling a strategic plan

Two key reasons why you need enterprise architecture:

·      Critical to business survival and success

·      Enables managed innovation within the enterprise

Business Benefits of Enterprise Architecture:

·      It helps an organization achieve its business strategy

·      Faster time to market for new innovations and capabilities

·      More consistent business processes and information across business units

·      More reliability and security, less risk

·      A more efficient business operation
