High-performance architecture: Key to enterprise transformation

High-performance architecture: Key to enterprise transformation | Enterprise Architecture | Scoop.it
Today's complex business process management (BPM) initiatives often rely on integration with enterprise architecture (EA). Find resources on BPM, architecture and integration topics.

Via Frederic Blondieau
Emeric Nectoux's insight:

The key to achieving integration, mobility and high performance: Understanding your user requirements and building a flexible, scalable architecture to meet them, says Adam Bari, managing director of IPM, an IT consulting firm. “If you don’t provide that architecture in your enterprise, users will take out their credit cards and buy it from someone else, regardless of security mandates,” he warns.

Does Your Board Need a Tech Expert? | Enterprise Architecture | Scoop.it
The answer isn’t always yes.

Via Joost van Lier
Emeric Nectoux's insight:

The answer to this question depends on two factors:

  1. Whether technology is a strategic differentiator for the business, and the nature of the industry.
  2. Market structure in which the company operates.

 

 

These questions help define the degree to which a board should be involved in technology.

Avoiding Analysis Paralysis With "Just Enough" Enterprise Architecture

Avoiding Analysis Paralysis With "Just Enough" Enterprise Architecture | Enterprise Architecture | Scoop.it

When it comes to planning & enterprise architecture (EA), there is actually such a thing as too much. Use "just enough" EA to increase time to market.


Via Joost van Lier
Emeric Nectoux's insight:

"Analysis paralysis or paralysis by analysis is an anti-pattern, the state of over-analyzing (or over-thinking) a situation so that a decision or action is never taken, in effect paralyzing the outcome."

 

During my career, I've seen so many times such behavior and I fought against it almost as many times I encountered it. Trying to be right, avoiding uncertainty, people end up without being able to shoot for a decision. To avoid such behavior apply the following pragmatic rules:

 

  1. Set a decision deadline.
  2. Ask colleagues / peers for a sanity check.
  3. Don't get lost in the detail.
  4. Don't wait for optimal decisions.
  5. Step forward a decision. 

 

Of course, doing so, you could feel unsecured and incomplete, but the most important is to get things moving ahead, isn't it?

Three data challenges for the public sector from 2016

Three data challenges for the public sector from 2016 | Enterprise Architecture | Scoop.it

This blog post was authored by David Chandra, Director for Public Sector Cloud Services, Asia.


Picture the scene: you are a senior official and your city is becoming more crowded and your citizens are demanding more real time information and better service while your resources are not increasing at the same pace.


Can your computer systems cope with the massive increase in workload? Can your staff? And do you have the skills required to make the most of the data?

Emeric Nectoux's insight:

Hyperscalability:  quite simply, it means that your computer systems will expand their capacity as your need increases.


Making the parallel with power grid, such information system as public sector one's will need to have the capacity to adapt to brutal increase of demand. Of course, Cloud computing is the answer behind this. Officials can use computing power on demand – scaling up when an emergency occurs.

In the Information Age We Need Brain-Based Enterprises

In the Information Age We Need Brain-Based Enterprises | Enterprise Architecture | Scoop.it

Enterprises based on brainpower therefore need to understand higher order business questions of leadership, innovation and creativity to stay ahead. Questions such as:

  1. Where does creativity and imagination come from at a personal level? How can you make collective creativity work? What part do tools and techniques for divergent and convergent thinking play in the mix?
  2. What kind of leadership is required to make innovation and creativity “business as usual” in your enterprise?
  3. What ensures creativity turns into innovation? What stops it?
  4. What are BBEs really doing beneath the veneer?
  5. How do culture and structure support or limit innovation and creativity? What can we do about it? How may we become a genuine learning enterprise?

Two Short definition of "Enterprise Architecture" and " Service Oriented Architecture" in order to compare them.

Emeric Nectoux's insight:

Short and straight to the point article. Explaining the differences between Enterprise Architecture discipline and Service Oriented Architecture style.

Worth to share the two definitions from the article:

 

Enterprise Architecture - The documenting and mapping of corporate strategic initiatives and strategies to the technological underpinnings that need to be in place to optimally deliver on those strategies.  What makes EA more than an intellectual or academic exercise is that it provides the governance scaffolding to ensure that the required work gets done to plan and deliver on required/key IT products/services/capabilities.  Importantly, EA is not focused on any one technology or technology bucket in isolation, but how they work in consort to ultimately provide business capabilities.

 

Service Oriented Architecture – An architectural approach to creating software applications and system integrations which focuses on the notion of Services; reusable software components that leverage open standards.  This provides a vehicle for companies to create applications more rapidly than ever before through composite service assembly/orchestration.  Because they are Service-based, they are, at the same time, more flexible. Though SOA itself has nothing to do with any specific technology (it is architecture and an approach),

Security risk management: Where companies fail and succeed

Security risk management: Where companies fail and succeed | Enterprise Architecture | Scoop.it
Businesses constantly fail to identify risks at the board level or implement the right security measures. But where does the breakdown occur, and how can other organisations avoid making the same mistakes?
Via Riaz Khan
Emeric Nectoux's insight:

"We need better day-to-day collaboration between privacy officers and CIO/CTO to surface all the subtle information flows and information collections,".


It is sometimes that comes down to the IT architects and managers on the ground, but that the message these more operational staff are sending is the important factor.


IT needs to become more business-minded, and while an IT manager may be concerned with the technical aspects of a vulnerability or risk to the business, what really matters is how that manager could describe the impact to the business, not the inner workings.

Microservices, SOA, and APIs: Friends or enemies?

Microservices, SOA, and APIs: Friends or enemies? | Enterprise Architecture | Scoop.it

Comparing a microservices architecture and service-oriented architecture (SOA) is a sensitive topic and often cause for a swift source of disagreement.

This article examines where these controversies stem from and considers how best to resolve them. It then looks forward to see how these concepts are combining with those of API management to enable more agile, decentralized, and resilient enterprise architectures.

Emeric Nectoux's insight:

"Service" term is always discussed, since it has a lot of room for interpretation. No matter the level of service you will discuss about, you will always find people to argue with you.

 

Micro-services, APIs and SOA are not an exception to this rule. As usual, when you end up in such confusion, you must start by defining what you and your interlucutor mean by "service". Once this is done, and only when this is done, you will be able to have a fruitful discussion.

 

In this article, the proposed simple definitions, are the following:

  • Microservices architecture is an alternative approach to structuring applications. An application is broken into smaller, completely independent components, enabling them to have greater agility, scalability, and availability.
  • SOA exposes the functions of applications as more readily accessible service interfaces, making it easier to use their data and logic in the next generation of applications.

EA Value - Quick Wins or Long-term Strategy? ~ Future of CIO

EA Value - Quick Wins or Long-term Strategy? ~ Future of CIO | Enterprise Architecture | Scoop.it

Classically, EA delivers value from a long-term strategic alignment perspective. Increasingly, EA teams are feeling pressure to deliver tangible results quickly and on a per-project basis. So tough choice for Enterprise Architect:  Do you tend to drive value from a short-term / quick-win standpoint, a long-term strategic perspective, or a combination thereof?

Emeric Nectoux's insight:

There are two approaches in EA implementation – top-down and bottom-up approach - that should run in parallel (at the same time).


The combination of a long-term perspective with some quick-wins,  is definitively the good approach to present some deliverables continuously.
