The roles of Enterprise Architecture and Technology Innovation are two fairly new and emerged roles that contain essential dynamics within the business landscape.
Enterprise Architects or EAs and Chief Technology Officers or CTOs must be aware of 5 primary findings from research:
- The major trends impacting their business and their individual role
- The major challenges to overcome in the short-term, mid-term, and long-term
- The reasons their role is becoming increasingly critical
- How leading organizations are successfully overcoming sourcing challenges
- Best practices for delivering business value and outcomes
Enterprise architects particularly must critically examine these five point and leverage these insights to raise the quality of their own team, better influence other IT leaders within their organization, and communicate the value of the sourcing organization to the higher ranks of the organization and other stakeholders.
Enterprise Architects also take steps to make use of advanced analytics, keep track of trends, and overcome challenges.
Advanced analytics are fundamental to customer, consumer, client, and user engagement. Analytics is the foundation for the mediation and value exchange occurring in digital ecosystems. Exponential growth of data has led to distributed and embedded analytics, and to accompanying capabilities such as logical data warehouses and in-memory computing.
Regardless of the company’s level of Enterprise Architect maturity, those who identify and understand economic and financial functions of business are most susceptible to digital transformation. As CTOs and CIOs make investments along these lines, the benefits of digitalization initiatives are endless.
