Transform Your IT and Get in Shape for the Digital Economy

Today’s information technology (IT) organizations face a dilemma. On the one hand, the digital economy is accelerating the pace of change in IT. The adoption of emerging technologies, the development of new business models and the consumerization of IT require that it evolve rapidly. On the other hand, IT faces a constant cost pressure and an increasing commoditization of services, which enable new sourcing approaches. In either case, incremental improvements and minor upgrades are not sufficient to meet these challenges; IT needs a transformational change.

Enterprise and Solution Architecture Forum: The New Generation IT Operating Model

Enterprise and Solution Architecture Forum: The New Generation IT Operating Model | Operating models | Scoop.it

Martha Heller at Heller Search Associates brought my attention to the discussion on The New IT Operating Model, which is mostly associated with the current trend of Service Orientation. It is a good topic to discuss, especially in a more comprehensive manner for its practical reason. Also, during current economic downturn, this effort can get folks prepared for the upcoming leap. Mark Settle, CIO of BMC Software presented a Broker/Integrate/Orchestrate model at Forbes online, and Richard Barton of PA Consulting presented a Service-Based IT Operating Model at @CIOPortfolio with emphasis on Service Portfolio. These are good stimulation to the discussion, and both articles contributed as a part of the story for the Service-Oriented IT Operating Model.

Platforms and Networks: Business Model Analysis, Part 1: Key Questions

Business model analysis is central to the lean startup approach developed by Eric Ries, Steve Blank, and others.

Operating Models in Contex The theory and practice of creating a more joined up enterprise

Recent research has shown that all large organisations suffer from disjoints and disharmony across the business to one degree or another, with tangible consequences in terms of elevated costs and missed opportunity. While Business Process Management (BPM) can be used to optimise discrete processes, bigger picture synergies between divisions and business units can only be fully exploited with the help of a higher level operating model.

The Evolving Role Of Business Architecture | Forrester Blogs

The Evolving Role Of Business Architecture | Forrester Blogs | Operating models | Scoop.it

Business architecture has become a bit of a watchword for organizations thinking about their future. It’s about all sorts of things – the “what” we do and “why” we do it. It’s about the “who with”, or more importantly “who for.” But it’s also about the “how we do it”, and “how we build engagement” to ensure we “do the right things,” rather than just “doing things right.”
