Enterprise Architecture is about more than just being able to design for complexity. More than anything else it is about managing Change and Stakeholder Concerns and Requirements. In todays world, we are witnessing rapid emergence of disruptive technologies such as Drones, Blockchain, Bitcoin, Micro Services, Fremium business models, etc., etc.
What should the Enterprise do to take advantage of such technologies and respond to them in an agile manner? The answer is in “Enterprise Anatomy”. Enterprise Anatomy helps model the Enterprise in a way that makes it easy to adopt emerging technologies.
In this Case Study, we will analyse how Drone Technology as being trialled by Airbus for its Large Aircraft inspections from an Enterprise Anatomy perspective.

The Internet of Things (IoT) refers to the interconnection of uniquely identifiable embedded computing-like devices within the existing Internet infrastructure.
"Things," in the IoT, refer to a wide variety of devices such as heart monitoring implants, biochip transponders on farm animals, automobiles with built-in sensors, or field operation devices that assist fire-fighters in search and rescue.
Due to the ubiquitous nature of connected smart objects in the IoT, an unprecedented number of devices are expected to be connected to the Internet. According to Gartner, there will be nearly 26 billion devices on the Internet of Things by 2020.
