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.

How Security Departments Can Leverage Enterprise Risk Management

How Security Departments Can Leverage Enterprise Risk Management | Enterprise Architecture | Scoop.it

Put simply, ERM provides an umbrella under which all other risk management activities fall. Organizations face an ever growing array of potential risks, and while some organizations are adept at managing certain types of risk, few have the skills to mitigate the full spectrum of risks that they face—from physical security concerns to network security to anticorruption and compliance programs.

TEDxNewWallStreet - Sean Gourley - High frequency trading and the new algorithmic ecosystem

Via Karlo Jara
Emeric Nectoux's insight:

The speed of human strategic thinking is fundamentally limited by the biological hardware that makes up the brain. As humans, we simply cannot operate on the millisecond time scale - but algorithms can, and it is these algorithms that are now dominating the financial landscape. In this talk, Sean Gourley examines this high frequency algorithmic ecosystem. An ecosystem, Gourley argues, that has evolved to the point where we as humans are no longer fully in control.

Limits of digital transformation: a bunch of theories

Limits of digital transformation: a bunch of theories | Enterprise Architecture | Scoop.it

It seems like almost everyone is putting out some sort of theory on “Digital Transformation” these days – whether we want them or not. So much is being aired about related phenomena such as digital business models, new work, and A.I. that I found it hard to just keep watching the debate from the sidelines.
So here is another take on the topic: a bunch of thoughts on the limits of digital transformation.

Emeric Nectoux's insight:

Niels Pflaeging brings us his viewpoint of the on-going hype related to Digital transformation:

 

    1. Theory 1: There is no such thing as a digital transformation. Period.
    2. Theory 2: Machine intelligence differs from human intelligence.
    3. Theory 3: Machine intelligence and ability to solve blue problems are important to organizations. What matters most to them is something decidedly different, though.


What is the most interesting to me in this post is that Niels Pflaeging presents the digital transformation as the continuation of the automatization movement. I do agree (up to a certain point), that if we stick to business (digital transformation applied to business only), this is very true. As an example among others, take a look at what is on-going and how digital transformation is used in bank industry.

 

 This said, now let's step back and consider also the effect of the digital transformation on the entire society/people (not only at work). Then, the story is different. Connecting people, giving them the possibility to quickly share ideas, information (good or wrong), cross check/compare this information, make each individual's voice heard, counter attack on lobbying perform by the institutions or rich companies, organize themselves to re-establish a democraty... All of this and more is made possible by the digital transformation that we are actually operating to ourselves. Now, let's combine this apetite for a different social setup with the business world, then I have real difficulty to couple with Niels' theory 1... Or maybe it's more a digital revolution than a digital transformation!

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.
