Heightened customer expectations and the need to survive in volatile markets have set businesses on a quest to become more agile, resilient, and relevant. To achieve these goals, it is crucial for them to adopt a transformation strategy that goes beyond the service they provide. The fastest way to do so is to delve into an innovation-driven enterprise transformation that equips them to think holistically about technology, teams, and data.
In my blog today, I will help you get acquainted with the three cornerstones of bringing about a comprehensive enterprise transformation.
Typically, enterprises have multi-layered interactions between systems, processes, and people making it a complex affair. At any given point in time, it is crucial that stakeholders have a clear understanding of what is going on at every juncture. Enter enterprise modelling!
Enterprise modelling essentially gives you a big picture view of the issues in your enterprise by creating interactive models based on your data, key values, and hypothesis.
Enterprise models are a result of engineering expertise coupled with scientific rigor that help you gain a better understanding of complex business systems and provide you with the tools to create robust strategies to deal with unanticipated outcomes.
Here are the different components of an enterprise model:
Put simply, enterprises are a set of unique entities that have a common goal of generating revenue and achieving customer satisfaction. In order to get there, enterprises need to apply certain engineering principles related to design, implementation, operation, and analysis to the management of the enterprise.
Enterprise engineering is based on the premise that every enterprise has an underlying framework which can be broken down into sects, studied, and modified to improve its design and function. Think of it like an old machine which can be taken apart into several mechanical components and analyzed. Rusty old pieces are repaired or replaced, making your machine better than what it was before!
There is a cyclical process involved in enterprise engineering consisting of these five key steps:
Enterprise architecture is a unique concoction of technology and strategy that you need to deploy to achieve your business vision. In essence, enterprise architecture is a methodology with which enterprises arrange their IT infrastructure in a way that can help them deliver best-in-class products and services while also futureproofing themselves against market changes.
Enterprise architecture is guided by robust architectural framework principles based on modern technologies, current business trends, and organizational data, all put to work to help you achieve your desired goals.
With enterprise architecture you can form a comprehensive and cohesive blueprint of your organizational structure which describes the hierarchy, technologies, business processes, and informational systems. Additionally, it also leaves room for adoption of cutting-edge innovations driven by technologies such as AI, machine learning, Blockchain, etc.
Here are the steps involved in the enterprise architecture methodology:
With these cornerstones in place, you will be able to avail benefits such as
