Emerging Enterprise Architecture Drives 10 Trends for 2013

Emerging Enterprise Architecture Drives 10 Trends for 2013 | Enterprise Architecture ◭ Solution Architecture | Scoop.it
2013 Enterprise Architecture Forecast: Cloud is the undercurrent for unusual, transformative synergies
Paul Aneja - eTrends's insight:

Innovation continues to evolve with increasingly intertwined uses of Cloud, Mobile, Social/Collaborative technologies, Devices, and Services, in transformative ways that herald new ways of doing business.


Development of personal Cloud ecosystems, with a requirement to integrate multiple devices and their data based on individual user requirements. This will become increasingly urgent in 2013, and will have a variety of consequences, including the need to maintain some separation between business and personal device Clouds.
By YE2013, Personal Clouds will need to be integrated into IT management and security offerings, which will create new markets, and result in a re-adjustment of requirements for software and services meant to provide unified solutions.
Increased emphasis upon the Velocity Component in Big Data, resulting in a shift in emphasis from Hadoop – and from and concentration upon volume alone – toward a more complex vision. The increasing velocity of business will require changes to data warehousing, and it will definitely favor Cloud deployment.
By YE 2013, we will see widespread business reliance on real-time predicative analytics within and across business functions and operations in all industries – which in turn will create new and unexpected business opportunities for user firms, and for the providers enabling those opportunities.
Significant move by telcos into mobile SaaS provisioning, as has started to happen, with a few missteps. This is being tried around the world as a way for the telcos to gain more margin. Since they have greater control over mobile networks than over fixed ones, they have special leverage here. Currently, they lack sophistication in this area, but that is likely to be temporary. This goes along with increasing channels for marketing SaaS solutions.
By 2015, telcos grow their share of the mobile SaaS market by at least 15 percent.
Rapid Evolution of IT organizational processes, and therefore IT’s organizational responsibilities, roles, and influence, will occur as a result of widespread use of multiple emergent, shifting, and unstable enterprise Cloud ecosystems.  
By YE 2014, this evolution will require significant change in the roles and responsibilities of IT, while becoming a major cost center in at least thirty percent of large enterprises.
By YE 2013, we will also see the beginnings of this with a transition of traditional enterprise systems integration into business process integration.


Cloud platforms and software suite offerings will expand quickly and substantially along industry verticals as customers realize the business value of integrative, industry / vertically-optimized Cloud solutions.
By YE 2013, at least one-quarter of new business software will be acquired and delivered as industry / vertically-optimized solutions, including “suites” integrated from multiple vendors via a single Cloud platform.


Analytics will be increasingly woven into Cloud-based offerings.
By YE 2013, at least fifty percent of major Cloud-based business management software offerings will include integrated Analytics to provide insights into usage of the offering (for vendors) and insights into value of the offering (for users).


Adoption of mobile commerce will be governed mostly by social factors, similar to those that governed the adoption of Smart Cards, rather than by technological factors.
Through at least 2014, Mobile commerce will be primarily a user-driven innovation despite attempts of technology providers and participating businesses to shape its adoption and usage.


Mobility will catalyze better integration and interaction between IT and LOB leaders to a level not previously seen. This will happen partly because of Mobility’s massive scale of use, partly because of its promise to deliver benefit through integration with Cloud, Mobile, Social/Collaborative and Analytics, and in part because of its exceptionally-accelerated pace of development and change.
By YE 2014, “Mobility” will be the leading force in all aspects of enterprise business and IT planning, budgeting, and management – and will be the pervasive force driving real Business and IT alignment as a result.


Mobility will dominate.
Through at least YE 2015, the single greatest driver in IT and Business org and operational change will be Mobility, based on its “90/90/90” influence factoring: 90 percent of business users in 90 percent of IT vendors’ targeted markets have a mobile device in reach or in use 90 percent of the time.


The strategic business benefits of Cloud IT will not be realized, until development and integration efforts/investments focus on optimizing Cloud for business workloads and vice-versa.
Until at least YE 2015, most Cloud implementations will exist as limited-scope, point-oriented and tactical paybacks, and will continue to increase IT and business management costs.

Top 10 Strategic Technology Trends For 2013 - Gartner

Top 10 Strategic Technology Trends For 2013 - Gartner | Enterprise Architecture ◭ Solution Architecture | Scoop.it

Top 10 list from Gartner, from the Gartner Symposium IT Expo 2012.


Mobile device battles: Mobile experiences eclipse the desktop experience. Consumerization drives tablets into the enterprise. Cloud and mobile are mutually reinforcing trends. Bring your own device trend accelerates. In 2013, mobile devices will pass PCs to be most common Web access tools. By 2015, over 80% of handsets in mature markets will be smart phones. 20% of those will be Windows phones. By 2015, tablet shipments will be 50% of laptop shipments, with Windows 8 in third place behind Apple and Android. Microsoft‘s share of overall client platform will fall to 60%, and could drop below 50%. In smartphones, Windows could pass RIM to be #3 player, and could be same size as Apple in units by 2015. Windows 8 will be “relatively niche,” with mostly appealing to enterprise buyers.

Mobile applications & HTML 5: Through 2014, JavaScript performance will push HTML5 and the browser as a mainstream application developer environment. There will be long shift to HTML5 from native apps as HTML5 becomes more capable. But native apps won’t disappear, and will always offer best experiences.


Personal Cloud: Cloud will be center of digital lives, for apps, content and preferences. Sync across devices. Services become more important; devices become less important.


Internet of Things: Internet of things is already here. Over 50% of Internet connections are things. In 2011, over 15 billion things on the Web, with 50 billion+ intermittent connections. By 2020, over 30 billion connected things, with over 200 billion with intermittent connections. Key technologies here include embedded sensors, image recognition and NFC. By 2015, in more than 70% of enterprises, a single exec will oversee all Internet connected things. Becomes the Internet of Everything.


Hybrid IT and Cloud Computing: Changes role of IT. IT departments must play more roles in coordinating IT related activities.


Strategic Big Data: Organizations need to focus on non-traditional data types and externa data sources. Hadoop and NoSQL gain momentum. Big data will meet social. Five richest big data sources on the Web include social graph, intent graph, consumption graph, interest graph and mobile graph. Concept of single corporate data warehouse is dead. Multiple systems need to be tied together.


Actionable Analytics: Cloud, packaged analytics and big data accelerates in 2013, 2014. Can now perform analytics and simulation on every action taken in business. Mobile devices will have access to the data, supporting business decision making.
Mainstream In-Memory Computing: Changes expectations, designs and architectures. Can boost performance and response times.


Enables real-time self service business intelligence. SAP and others will accelerate delivery of applications in 2012/2013 to leverage in memory capability.


Integrated Ecosystems: More packaging of software and services to address infrastructure or application workload. There will be more shipment of “appliances,” with software delivered as hardware. New trend: virtual appliances, which Gartner sees gaining in popularity over the next five years.


Enterprise App Stores: By 2014, there will be more than 70 billion mobile app downloads from app stores every year. Also by 2014, most organizations will deliver mobile apps to workers via private application stores.

Open Data – An Introduction | Open Knowledge Foundation

Open Data – An Introduction | Open Knowledge Foundation | Enterprise Architecture ◭ Solution Architecture | Scoop.it
Building technology and communities to create, share and use open information.


“Open data is data that can be freely used, reused and redistributed by anyone – subject only, at most, to the requirement to attribute and sharealike.”


The key features are:

Availability and Access: the data must be available as a whole and at no more than a reasonable reproduction cost, preferably by downloading over the internet. The data must also be available in a convenient and modifiable form.


Reuse and Redistribution: the data must be provided under terms that permit reuse and redistribution including the intermixing with other datasets.


Universal Participation: everyone must be able to use, reuse and redistribute – there should be no discrimination against fields of endeavour or against persons or groups. For example, ‘non-commercial’ restrictions that would prevent ‘commercial’ use, or restrictions of use for certain purposes (e.g. only in education), are not allowed.
