Why do I need a data strategy? – Architecture & Governance Magazine

Why do I need a data strategy? – Architecture & Governance Magazine | Enterprise Architecture | Scoop.it

Everyone talks about data strategy but what exactly is it, why do you need it, how do you define, execute and measure the effectiveness?

Emeric Nectoux's insight:
  • Each organizational data strategy is unique but is typically tied to the business strategy.
  • The data strategy provides a shared understanding and vision enabling everyone to relate technology and data management activities to business strategy.
  • The data strategy may vary at different levels according to the organisational complexity. For example, data strategy may be defined within specific lines of business, but should ultimately have some commonality and connection with the organizational data strategy.
  • Consider a Center of Excellence to provide a frictionless engagement model to accelerate execution of the data strategy across different business groups.

Implementing a digital transformation at industrial companies

Implementing a digital transformation at industrial companies | Enterprise Architecture | Scoop.it

Industrial companies have long trailed behind retailers and other B2C players when it comes to digitizing their marketing and sales operations, but they are now on the cusp of change. With the COVID-19 pandemic forcing workers to stay home and limiting in-person interactions, digital solutions are now essential to customer outreach and support. In fact, a recent McKinsey survey showed that two-thirds of B2B customers prefer remote human assistance or digital self-service when making a purchase. What’s more, 80 percent of B2B leaders said that omnichannel sales were equally or more effective than traditional methods.

A comparison of the top four enterprise architecture frameworks | BCS

A comparison of the top four enterprise architecture frameworks | BCS | Enterprise Architecture | Scoop.it
For many people, the very notion of enterprise architecture (EA) is closely associated with EA frameworks, if not entirely synonymous to them, writes Svyatoslav Kotusev, Enterprise Architecture researcher.
Emeric Nectoux's insight:

Interesting view point. 


My one penny to the discussion: frameworks (any kind of) must not be applied blindly. As a professional practitioner, you have to know them (in details), know their pros & cons, and decide when to apply the different pieces that match to your context and needs. 


Not to forget, EA Frameworks, as any method and framework, is a business by its own. Trainings, certifications and new versions are there to remind you that you will be obsolete at a point in time. 

Richard Platt's curator insight, September 17, 7:46 PM

Overall, the phenomenon of EA frameworks most certainly is a grand management fad that was shamefully swallowed by the EA community. Moreover, it arguably represents one of the most ridiculous fads in the history of management, or ‘the fad of the century, which proposed so few new ideas relative to the previously existing approaches, wasted so much money in organizations globally, brought so little value to practice and, taking all that into account, is still not unanimously acknowledged as a fad. Even worse, instead of being rejected outright as impractical and forgotten, EA frameworks slowly get institutionalized into the fabric of society in the form of university courses and prerequisite certifications for architects, perpetuating themselves and causing permanent cognitive dissonance between rhetoric and reality throughout the EA community.  As it requires a rich imagination, unshakeable faith, or strong commercial motivation to find any resemblance between how successful EA practices actually work and what popular EA frameworks prescribe, these frameworks do not deserve to be discussed seriously, but only to be derided and thrown out. Do not try to implement EA frameworks and, please, beware of the next fads!

How You Can Simplify Your Provisioning With NaaS

How You Can Simplify Your Provisioning With NaaS | Enterprise Architecture | Scoop.it
Quick and simple cloud provisioning is a must for businesses in 2021 – and the key to achieving it is by using Network as a Service.
Emeric Nectoux's insight:

As-a-service networking creates this flexibility by reducing time and effort spent on manual tasks including configuration and management of network devices, security management, and response to capacity demand fluctuations. In the case of cloud connectivity, managing each individual direct connection with each of your CSPs can create and proliferate those manual tasks IT network teams are trying to avoid.

PLM and graph data

PLM and graph data | Enterprise Architecture | Scoop.it

This article aims to describe the main core functions of a PLM by taking the perspective of graph data.

As the industry is beginning to look towards IT a bit more seriously that what was done in the last decades, it may be important for IT people inside and outside the industry to understand the basics of a PLM. This can lead to points of comparison with other kinds of IT systems that are met frequently outside the industry (in the so-called "tertiary" sector).

La chaire « PLM du Futur » : une approche cognitive et sémantique de l’exploitation des datas | Arts et métiers

La chaire « PLM du Futur » : une approche cognitive et sémantique de l’exploitation des datas | Arts et métiers | Enterprise Architecture | Scoop.it
La chaire a pour ambition de répondre aux enjeux de la transformation digitale industrielle, en s’appuyant sur la convergence du monde physique et du monde digital du cycle de vie d’un produit, depuis le cahier des charges jusqu’à sa fin de vie. L’association de spécialistes du digital et d’experts en PLM est essentielle pour modéliser l’industrie du futur.

Développer des travaux de recherche innovants par une approche cognitive et sémantique

D’une durée de 6 ans, cette chaire permettra de développer des travaux de recherche innovants dans le domaine des méthodes et outils de gestion des cycles de vie des produits. A ce jour, deux thèses y contribuent.

Optimiser l’exploitation de données hétérogènes

Au sein du Lispen, sur le campus d’Aix-en-Provence, Lise Kim a débuté une thèse pour répondre aux problématiques de l’industriel Capgemini. Ses travaux portent sur l’exploration des données de l’industrie manufacturière afin d’en optimiser l’exploitation.

Lise Kim explique « 16% du temps moyen d’un salarié en entreprise est consacré à la recherche d’information. Les données sont en perpétuelle croissance, hétérogènes, implicitement liées et distribuées. L'accès à l'information est donc un enjeu majeur ».

Comment obtenir des informations performantes, à la demande ?

L'orientation prise par Lise Kim pour répondre à cette question est d’exploiter les technologies des graphes pour réaliser une recherche d’information rapide, pertinente et exhaustive.
Le premier défi est de construire un graphe capable de représenter l’ensemble des données hétérogènes de l’entreprise en prenant en compte la diversité syntaxique des données.
Le second est de produire un graphe de connaissance permettant l’extension de la recherche vers des termes sémantiques proches.

Pour en savoir plus sur les enjeux et les propositions de solution en cours d’implémentation : présentation de la thèse de Lise Kim "How to use graphs for information retrieval in the manufacturing industry ?"

Démontrer la pertinence d'une approche cognitive dans la conception d’environnement de design augmenté

Sur le campus de Paris, Armand Huet a, quant à lui, rejoint le laboratoire LCPI. Ses travaux de thèse visent à développer un assistant de conception pour structurer les connaissances sur les règles de conception d’un produit soumises à la réglementation juridique et aux contraintes techniques de l’industrie.

« L'application des règles en matière de conception de dessins ou de modèles n'est pas une tâche aisée en raison de leur nombre et de la variété des domaines qu'elles couvrent » précise Armand.

Les outils existants nécessitent une action directe de l'utilisateur qui ralentit le processus de conception. Ils ne peuvent pas traiter tous les types de règles de conception. Un nouvel outil est nécessaire pour appliquer et optimiser de manière transparente ces règles en adéquation avec les besoins de l’industrie manufacturière.

L’originalité de l’approche réside dans la situation dans laquelle le concepteur sera placé. Un écran est utilisé pour la conception et l'autre pour la recherche de règles de conception. « Cette expérience nous permet de mesurer l'impact de notre assistant sur différents paramètres tels que le temps total de conception, le nombre de règles de conception appliquées avec succès et le poids cognitif de l’utilisateur » conclut Armand Huet.

Former les salariés de l’industrie dans les domaines du PLM

La transformation numérique fait émerger de nouveaux métiers, de nouvelles façons de travailler et d’apprendre.

« Préparer l’avenir en formant en interne les salariés de l’industriel sur de nouvelles approches de la gestion des cycles de vie des produits et de la maquette numérique, c’est également l’objectif de la chaire « PLM du Futur » rappelle Frédéric Segonds, maître de conférences au LCPI (campus de Paris) co-responsable de la chaire avec Philippe Véron, professeur des universités au Lispen (campus d’Aix-en-Provence).

Cette action fédère, côté Arts et Métiers, 8 enseignants répartis sur 3 campus pour environ 40 heures de cours dispensées par session. A ce jour, 5 sessions ont été réalisées pour environ 60 personnels formés au socle de compétences du PLM. Ces parcours sont proposés par l’Ecole by Capgemini, au sein de la filière 3DExperience en collaboration avec Dassault Systèmes. Ils sont accessibles aux salariés qui en font une demande motivée.

4 essential themes for adopting low-code software development culture

4 essential themes for adopting low-code software development culture | Enterprise Architecture | Scoop.it
Growing trends suggest CIOs must adopt a new philosophy for executing a low-code culture in IT – and across the business.
Emeric Nectoux's insight:
Welcome to the buzz surrounding low-code software.

 

Low code offers the potential to facilitate the development of solutions by using a graphical user interface instead of the traditional approach of relying on hand-coded programming, thus requiring little to no coding to build applications and processes.

 

This more visual approach to software development is on the rise, particularly after a Gartner prediction that low-code application development would represent about 65% of application development activity. In February, Gartner forecast worldwide low-code development to grow 23% this year.

 

This growing trend suggests CIOs must adopt a new philosophy for executing a low-code culture in IT.

 

Four themes are essential to executing this shift.



  • Keep it simple, stupid.



  • All about speed.



  • Crowdsource the IT department.



  • IT department adjustments.

Composable architecture: The latest trend in EA helping companies adapt and grow – Architecture & Governance Magazine

Composable architecture: The latest trend in EA helping companies adapt and grow – Architecture & Governance Magazine | Enterprise Architecture | Scoop.it

We live in uncertain times. Volatility in terms of market, business, and customer needs is here to stay. So, we must ask ourselves how do we plan for a future that keeps on changing? One answer is composable architecture. This article will discuss the importance of composability and how to use composable architecture to help organizations transform and keep up with change.  

Emeric Nectoux's insight:

During my time at Gartner, I was part of the one of whose preaching for Composable architecture, which, of course, aims to support Composable Business. 

 

I was and still am convinced of such an approach. Beside my believes, the main issue, when it comes to Composable Business, is the ability (or not) of the organization to adapt to such model.

 

To reach a Composable Enterprise, companies have to to work in an ecosystem, where none of the components (companies) doesn’t control every pieces (by definition the ecosystem is composed of different companies). This requires trust and very well defined contracts between the different actors. As an example, the « Software Republic » promoted by Luca De Meo, current Renault’s CEO, is working on this topic since it has been launch early 2021. Without such definition work and a well defined and working governance, it is impossible to reach a Composable Enterprise. 

 

This I being said, I do belief a Composable Enterprise is worth the effort. It leverages so many benefits and strengths. Leveraging excellences that exists in different compagnies, without trying to re-invent the wheel each time, composing them. It is a huge gain, not only for the time to market, but, also when it comes to adapting the enterprise to continuous quick market changes and world risks / disasters.

Refactor Legacy Manufacturing Execution Systems into Event-Driven Microservices | AWS for Industries

Refactor Legacy Manufacturing Execution Systems into Event-Driven Microservices | AWS for Industries | Enterprise Architecture | Scoop.it
Introduction Breaking the traditional methods of factory floor transformation using emerging cloud technology is often met with resistance. Transformation of manufacturers legacy Manufacturing Execution Systems, MES, commonly know as command and control systems is seen as a high-risk disruption.
Emeric Nectoux's insight:

MES is a complex topic. We must adopt the use case driven approach in order to slice capabilities from home-grown MES without making changes to the existing production system, allow manufacturers to consistently leverage the value of industrial data to operating costs.

 

Background

Automotive OEM’s factory floors are highly automated and efficient, operating at 90%+ efficiency. Connected factory and solutions for collecting performance inputs from the machine line has been in place for at least a decade. Unfortunately, the data collected has not been analyzed effectively and the machine layer has not been effectively integrated into MES. Prior to COVID-19, most manufacturers were working toward their long term 8 to 10 years connected factory Vision.

 

Today’s challenges

Now, manufacturers are reducing their long-term MES and connected factory to a near-term 1 – 3 year implementation. Factory business leaders want to analyze the right operational data to allow production lines to quickly scale, use machine learning to predict and remove factory floor devices that will most likely cause downtime. Factory automation has historically been the responsibility of the control system engineer—the device guy who managed PLCs, HMIs, DCS and SCADAs.  

IT and OT  speak different languages: Engineers who interact with OT work generally with closed, proprietary protocols and programmable logic controllers rather than technologies that afford full computer control. Enterprise IT professionals speak a foreign cloud-native vernacular. This language barrier hinders cross-functional collaboration and perpetuates siloed cultures — both of which are incompatible with mitigating the risks of converging IT and OT systems.
