Blogs on What and How of doing Enterprise, Business & IT Architecture. Did you hear "fail early"?
Enterprises are complex living organisms that need to address their own “Health Issues” to survive and thrive. When they ignore this it results in premature “Death” of the Enterprise. Over the years, while the average life expectancy of human beings has improved tremendously, the life expectancy of Enterprises have come down. It is interesting to note that human life expectancy has improved after a thorough understanding of Human Anatomy and improved Diagnostics. A key to fixing Enterprise Disorders is the understanding of Enterprise “Anatomy” and improved Enterprise “X-Rays”.
It is also interesting to note that thousands of Business and IT Managers are throwing money down on projects without knowing anything about the anatomy of the Enterprise beforehand and carrying it forward to posterity. It's like doctors making recommendations without looking at X-rays and other Diagnostics. Also, many Projects are executed on a stand alone basis with no understanding of how they relate to other Projects.
Almost all Enterprise disorders are systemic in nature and can be traced to multiple functional areas within the Enterprise. In the absence of Enterprise AnatomyTM , it is rather impossible to understand cross relationships. Sales team, Manufacturing team, Engineering Team etc., drive their own Projects in isolation. Very few Enterprise Managers can comprehend multi-disciplinary approach to solving Enterprise issues.
The Enterprise AnatomyTM is an inter-connected Model of systems from Sales, Engineering, Production, Marketing, Support, IT, etc. Each system (department) contributes to the functioning of the Enterprise. Relevant and timely Enterprise X-Rays are then produced from the Enterprise AnatomyTM to solve Enterprise Problems.
For example, we can look at the application of Enterprise AnatomyTM to address conflicting business strategies, out dated processes, and IT redundancy. It is also equally relevant for a worldwide roll out of a new product or business transformation.
