Is your organization capability driven? Do you understand the intersection of Technology, Process, Stakeholders and Policy within your organization? If your company is like most, you are undergoing transformations to your Processes, Technology and Teams to better serve your customers, reduce costs and work faster. But most transformations aren’t succeeding. Despite everyone’s best efforts, fewer than 33% of digital transformations achieve improved performance. A disconnect between strategy and execution is one of the biggest challenges as organizations often fail to grasp the full impact of the changes they are making. Business Architecture maps that intersection to provide a clearer picture and helps you effectively execute business strategy quicker to improve the customer experience and reduce costs.

Implement Business Architecture best practices into your Application Portfolio Management, Solutions Architecture and Performance Management to establish an efficient enterprise and deliver the best solution to your customers.

 Application Portfolio Management

There is no question that your portfolio of applications is essential to helping your business move forward. But how do you integrate new applications and new platforms with your legacy applications? Your application portfolio should align applications with supporting capabilities and cross-reference capabilities to identify and address capability gaps and redundancies.

Redesign Solutions Architecture

You must deliver a solution that aligns to business needs. Redesigning Solutions Architecture using core principles of Business Architecture ensures your solutions connect to business needs and make the optimal use of your technology capabilities to deliver the most efficient solutions.

Performance Management

As an organization, you want to measure success. Are your solutions delivering value? Leverage Business Architecture to cross-map business objectives, business units, initiatives and Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) for feedback that provides real-time perspective on how your solutions are performing.

Business Architecture Best Practices help you look at your application portfolio, understand your capabilities, make sure you are delivering solutions that optimally utilize your technology and then monitor the success of solutions using appropriate KPIs.
