Enterprise Architects: The Champions of IT

The global impact of the COVID-19 pandemic caught the world unawares. Not only did the pandemic tax our healthcare systems in ways we couldn’t imagine, it forced businesses to adjust to a largely remote workforce, cut costs, and make very difficult decisions to stay afloat.

This unprecedented time elevated the role of enterprise architects into the champions of IT as they quickly assessed their companies’ business capabilities, determined how to provide moreself-service abilities to employees, cut IT costs, and ensure business continuity throughout an organization.

Driven by the IT needs during the pandemic, Hylton Southey, Managing Director of LeanIX, Inc.will discuss what organizations need to consider as they transform their IT and leverage enterprise architecture for business continuity.

Key takeaways from this presentation:

 Learn how the global pandemic forced companies to rethink their IT transformation to accommodate a remote workforce

 Understand the issues enterprise architects need to address to ensure business continuity

 Gain insight into the steps EAs can take to keep IT running while balancing the needs ofthe business

 Learn how the Government of Yukon ensured business continuity using enterprise architecture

Business Capabilities - the cornerstone of Enterprise Architecture

 

Business capabilities are foundational elements of enterprise architecture in any business organisation. They organise and describe abilities an organisation needs to deliver its business objectives. Having a determined set of required capabilities is just a beginning, though. 

  • How business capabilities can be used to effectively steer and support organisational development? How they can help to deliver expected business results? 
  • The presentation will use real-life examples to discuss why every organisation should consider establishing and maintaining business capabilities.

Architecture in the Product-Oriented Delivery Model

To address the demands of digital business, many organizations adopt a product-centric approach todelivering solutions. This approach is based on creating cross-functional product-centric teams whichhave a high degree of autonomy to experiment, innovate, and iterate to continuously deliver value for the customers.

The product-centric model requires a nimble approach to architecture, in order to balance the teams’ freedom to innovate with the risks of creating redundant, overlapping, or disconnected solutions.In this session we will discuss how Architecture can provide valuable services in the product-oriented delivery model by influencing the digital business strategy, connecting strategy to execution, shaping the product portfolio, and enabling sound technology decisions to maximize value from technology investments.

Some key takeaways include:-

What is the role of Architecture in the product-oriented flow of work?

Which services should the Architecture team offer to create value for stakeholders?

How can Architects connect multiple perspectives: business strategies, IT strategies, product portfolios, and investment portfolios?

How the architecture teams can earn trust and avoid an “ivory tower” perception?

Become indispensable: Strengthen your EA practice by producing valuable business outcomes

Abstract

Organizations have spent the past years focusing on efficiency, which meant when hit with a major disruption like COVID-19, many business processes were too brittle to quickly adapt and simply broke.  During the rebuilding process, Gartner indicates that leaders must design an architecture that: enables better access to information; can augment that information with new insights; and is composable, modular, and can change and respond more quickly as decisions are made. 

But how do you do that?  A good first step is to add a business architecture top layer to your enterprise architecture efforts.  Using this lens, you can connect IT to business objectives (ensuring your efforts are business-outcome-driven) and therefore easily changeable when business objectives evolve or change.

In this session you will learn how to:

  • Create a strategic roadmap where you can plan future business capabilities and other IT investments
  • Understand how emerging technology can be leveraged to support business objectives
  • Optimize your current IT portfolio for cost, lifecycle, and agility
  • Ensure transformation projects are aligned with strategic objectives
  • Implement business-outcome-driven enterprise architecture

Scale Agile effectively with strategic portfolio management

Organizations such as yours are pursuing Agile development of products and services to get a continuous stream of digital innovation out the door. Yet not without challenges. Agile demands big changes to the way we plan, make decisions and deliver results.

It demands that we embrace the spirit of independence and entrepreneurialism for the benefit of working software, customer collaboration, and speed-to-market. But proliferation of autonomous development across the enterprise can bring with it serious consequences such as autonomous and non-aligned Agile development teams, an exploding inventory of IT assets, and no coherence with overall business and IT strategy.

Find out in this webinar how you can use strategic portfolio management to ensure Agile teams remain connected to the whole. When you start strategically managing your Agile portfolio, you’ll align Agile activities to business strategy. You’ll avoid wasteful investment by consolidating and maximizing the potential of existing assets. And you’ll accelerate digital product delivery by eliminating any deployment hurdles.
