Everyone dreams of “Go Digital” but first you have to know HOW to go

The use of a smart business architecture prepares the business for Going Digital. You cannot make a Digital transformation without digitalising the business. Going directly to acquiring or developing applications, and hoping Digital Transformation happens on and of itself, is magical thinking.

  • Prepare for change

    Prepare the business for the unknown
    The business shall always be fit for the purpose of reaching its ambitions and goals
    Changes are made quickly and frequently
    Our architecture approach prepares the business for this type of change
  • Weeks – not months or years

    High Level Architecture(HLA) core architecture: What you need  – nothing more
    No details up front
    Fast deliveries – weeks, not months or years
  • You need information

    Too much data, too little information
    We show you how you should reuse information you already have
    Information must be managed as an essential common resource
    The key to value creation and flexibility
  • Tear down data-silos

    Data siloes are easy to create, but hard to get rid of
    We show you how to de-complexify
    We show you the optimal sequence of acquisitions or development of applications
  • Get rid of waste

    Clean up data and application portfolio
    You save money, reduce risk, and become flexible.
  • IRM Architecture Process

    Three step process:
    1. Build architecture
    2. Launch change projects
    3. Govern projects

Component blocks identified for application acquisition/development, based on Information group dependencies.

From the information architecture we can derive dependencies between information groups. From these dependencies we can

  • Find the most effective order to develop an application portfolio
  • See what risk we have for overruns in projects
  • Plan how to best coordinate projects
  • Remove applications with manageable risk
  • How To Develop A Sustainable Digital Platform

    “The digital world is here but our old companies are simply not yet designed for digital”; stated by Jeanne Ross in her new book “Designed for Digital.”

  • Data-centric or data-driven?

    These two terms, “data-driven” and “data-centric”, are both relatively new. They are both frequently used, and they seem to get much attention nowadays. As with all new expressions their meaning can be vague.  

  • Prepare for the unknown III

    When you prepare for the unknown you do two things in combination; you clean up the mess and you build pure and simple, open structures that give the right level of flexibility. This will never happen by accident. You will need an architecture tailored for this purpose.
