With the year drawing to a close, we've looked back over twelve months of blogs covering a range of different topics including enterprise architecture, digital transformation and business process analysis to bring you our top five blogs of 2019! So without further ado:
1) Take Control of Technology with Application Rationalization
Whilst the trope of advancing technology being used by a malevolent force to control us will be very familiar to sci-fi enthusiasts and conspiracy theorists, in reality no such force exists. We are however, at the mercy of myriad sprawling devices, applications, and systems. This blog from July 2019 explores how taking control of technology using application rationalization lets you harness, rather than fear, innovation.
2) Why Digital Twin Has Got Everyone Talking
Digital Twin was one of the hottest trends in technology this year, but as with anything at its peak in the hype cycle, deciphering the noise and rationalizing the different voices has become a challenge in itself. With a plethora of vendors racing to claim that they 'support/enable digital twins', we have to ask why digital twin is suddenly all the rage? How does it differentiate itself from existing capabilities? How exactly do you go about establishing it within your organization? In March 2019, we sought to answer those questions.
3) Blue Sky Modeling
Migrating your infrastructure to the cloud might sound like a simple task to the CEO, but you are aware of the risks, complications, and dangers to the business. Understanding a new architecture, which will look radically different from the one currently in operation, is no mean feat. Get it wrong and the consequences could be dire. In November 2019, we explored how to mitigate the risks of cloud migration.
4) Enterprise Architecture - No Longer Where Agile Goes to Die
Enterprise architecture and Agile are often portrayed as chalk and cheese. Agile is the darling of digital disrupters, whereas enterprise architecture is exclusive to industry behemoths. You may surprised to hear, then, that the two are not necessarily juxtaposed, and the notion that they are incompatible should have been put to bed long ago. Check out this blog from February 2019 on why enterprise architecture is no longer where Agile goes to die.
5) Why Your Digital Transformation Needs Enterprise Architecture
Change is constant and unpredictable, so how do you adapt and avoid being swept aside by its winds? The modern enterprise needs a digital strategy that brings the speed, quality, and flexibility to respond to market changes and customer demands. In February 2019 we explored how an effective EA initiative can give you the confidence of delivering just this, providing a holistic framework from which you model the entire organization and make informed strategic decisions in near real-time.
