For last several years, technology industry is preparing for the Internet of things, a type of computing characterized by small, often dumb, usually unseen computers attached to objects. These devices sense and transmit data about the environment or offer new means of controlling it.


As computers with wireless capability become cheap, it’s becoming affordable to connect more things to the Internet, like sensors in sewer pipes, factory machinery, lights, and home appliances.


What are some new applications of Internet of Things, that you are looking to leverage in the next 3 years?

Perhaps we should be asking ourselves..."what could possibly go wrong?"!

What is architecture? What do we do in architecture? And how do we do it?

The Leonardo Di Vinci famous quote: "Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication"  summarizes well the challenge that any architect is facing everyday. 


In his post, Tom gets to this fundamental point, that is the difference between theory (principle) and reality (practice):


"Right down at the root, in principle, architecture is incredibly simple. It all comes down to just one idea, one aim: that things work better when everything works together, on purpose.


Right down at the root, in practice, architecture is incredibly hard. It all comes down to just one aim, one requirement, that everything works together with everything else, on purpose."


To me, the key is how people, within the same enterprise, are able to cooperate in order to achieve their objectives, with the less waste as possible. That is what enterprise architecture is trying to help with.

Emeric Nectoux's curator insight, May 8, 2014 2:07 PM

As usual, John Spacey on behalf of Simplicable, wrote a very pedagogical and "straight to the point" post.


The 7 mistakes are very accurate and unfortunately also very common. Not that I want to classify them, but the #1 "Focusing on one domain" might be the most severe ones especially for people (as enterprise architect are) who should embrace the complete scope of the enterprise. Focusing on one domain only (not matter if it is technology, business, process...) makes the whole thing unbalanced and likely to fail from the beginning.

Enterprise architecture is mainly about strategic planning and portfolio management. As such, Business Capability is an useful way to describe what a business needs to do to fulfill its mission in a context of a specific business model. A useful way to think about capabilities is as of individual skills that can be attributed to an organization and delivered through the combination of people, process, information, and technology.

The Business Capability Canvas

Designing businesses is not a trivial activity. Having a simple structure that one can use to design and / or understand a capability makes designing business architecture so much easier.

Just realized that I never got around to sharing this most important paper from McKinsey. It is important for anyone concerned with digital transformation because it highlights how digital transforms the way we do things, not just how we do things. 


For example, eCommerce has not only made catalog ordering faster by providing us with a browser on the Internet as opposed to a paper ordering form that must be mailed or faxed in to the retailer office. eCommerce has transformed the way we purchase digital goods such as music and travel, allowing social integration with reviews, comments and suggestions.


McKinsey highlights here how different the process is and moving us away from the funnel metaphor to a never-ending loop that, if all goes well, builds on itself and grows.


Part of the essential reads one must make to understand digital transformation.

Mobile apps need service-oriented systems behind them | ZDNet

Mobile apps need service-oriented systems behind them | ZDNet | Enterprise architecture | Scoop.it
Service oriented architecture was intended to render technologies and device choices irrelevant. This plays well in the BYOD era, when a new device comes through the door every day.
Yves Peeters's insight:

- SOA is about "standardizing on the inside" to "differentiate on the outside"

- The intention of SOA is to make various functions available as services that can be run across any type of system or device.

- Having a service-oriented back end paves the way for reliable, real-time information for business transactions.

- real-time data enhances mobile business analytics, thus improving cross-selling capabilities

- Mobile is also a competitive tool for employees, and now play a role in improving sales, customer service, scheduling and dispatch

We don’t need another Hero - Enterprise Architecture

We don’t need another Hero - Enterprise Architecture | Enterprise architecture | Scoop.it

This post starts of as a bit of a rant.   For far too long, we (me included) have been guilty of playing the “Hero” role when a crisis occurs.

Emeric Nectoux's curator insight, May 31, 2014 12:48 PM

The problem with this approach is that we end up throwing away all the good work we did to establish policies, procedures and best practices in favour of an ad hoc, one off solution.  In  a “crisis”, we don’t have time and all our practices get thrown out the window in order to solve the problem as quick as possible.
