Scientific Way of Managing Enterprise
At iCMG, we have proven beyond doubt that “Enterprise Architecture is a scientific basis for creating, maintaining and running an Enterprise. Use of enterprise primitives, complex composites, dynamic traceability models, relationship matrix, gap analysis, impact analysis, simulation etc. provides necessary enterprise x-rays for visualization and understanding enterprise disorders. These enterprise x-rays provide mathematical basis for enterprise diagnosis. The year 2012 have been a breakthrough year as we have successfully demonstrated (few dozen times) how to address enterprise issues and problems in 45 days cycle. This is unlike popular belief that enterprise architecture initiatives need at least six months to deliver something significant.
The idea of Enterprise Architecture is to describe the fundamental structure of an Enterprise. In order to achieve this, we need to discover the underlying, elementary, single variable, “primitive” structural element. These primitives in their aggregate would describe the Enterprise in its entirety.
The way nature is populated with chemical compounds, enterprises are populated with “enterprise compounds” or “composites"(multi variable models).
One has to remember that “Enterprise Architecture” is not a time bound project or initiative. It’s scientific way of managing and running an enterprise effectively. Of course, a specific enterprise problem could be taken up as a time-bound project. As and when new problems are being addressed, the enterprise primitives can be created, so as the basic composites. Just like a human body, every Enterprise will evolve (change) on a daily basis.
