Deloitte's Tech Trends 2014: Disruptors & Enablers

Deloitte's Tech Trends 2014: Disruptors & Enablers | Enterprise Architecture ◭ Solution Architecture | Scoop.it
Welcome to Deloitte’s fifth annual Technology Trends report. Each year, they study the ever-evolving technology landscape, focusing on disruptive trends that are transforming business, government, and society. Once again, they’ve selected 10 topics that have the opportunity to impact organizations across industries, geographies, and sizes over the next 18 to 24 months.
Paul Aneja - eTrends's insight:

Report discusses 2 types - disruptors and enablers. Disruptors are areas that can create sustainable positive disruption in IT capabilities, business operations, and sometimes even business models.

 

Enablers are those technologies in which many CIOs have already invested time and effort, but warrant another look because of new developments and new capabilities. Simply put, disruptors are trends that will disrupt current ways of doing things, while enablers will enable ways of doing things differently.

Recapping the Gartner Enterprise Architecture Summit 2013

Recapping the Gartner Enterprise Architecture Summit 2013 | Enterprise Architecture ◭ Solution Architecture | Scoop.it

Highlights from Gartner Enterprise Architecture Summit 2013. 

Paul Aneja - eTrends's insight:

Key characteristics of the new world of Enterprise Architecture.

 

Enterprise Transformation – EA is now and in the future focusing at the enterprise level and emerging out of the project and program level. This is necessary change to get the proper breadth to ensure that solutions are aligned to the business objectives but also maximized for the whole of the company rather than a specific function or business unit.

 

Innovation for Growth – Enterprise Architects will provide innovation services to the enterprise by distilling key market trends from a business and technology perspective. An example of this is the effect that mobility or cloud computing has on specific business models.

 

More than Technology – EA is often confused with IT architecture but EA is much more than technology and primarily focused on providing value for the business.

 

Meaningful Business Partnerships – We use the words align business to IT. For EA’s it’s much more. EA’s must partner with the business. This means we don’t just distill a set of goals and objectives but we work with the business to rationalize, challenge, propose and aid in the business transformation activities.

  

Corporate Sustainability – EA’s play a key role in ensuring the long term success of the business through the enterprise capabilities and solutions we enable. Companies will start to use EA as an insurance policy once we are able to prove this model in a consistent way.

 

Drive through Emotional Intelligence – This is a key theme for enterprise architects. It allows EA’s to have the social and emotional intelligence to lead an organization from these key characteristics.

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.
