Controlling your Systems with Application Architecture

Controlling your Systems with Application Architecture

Overview

Process modelling offers visibility and control over what a business does, delving into tasks, accountability, data, and other essential information. While most modelling notations offer a view into how technology and systems interact with a process, there is little representation of how different systems interact with one another.

Application Architecture can offer this visibility. It provides a visual representation of the connection between various IT programs, modules and databases. This can be essential in rationalising your organisation’s program portfolio; the clear identification of dependencies and interconnections mitigates risk from changes to the architecture.

Explore both when and how to deploy Application Architecture models, adhering to the ArchiMate 3.0 standard, through this interactive workshop.

Enabling Process Standardisation & Harmonisation

Enabling Process Standardisation & Harmonisation

80% Commodity – industry best practises will suffice

20% High Impact – innovation & agility are critical

Targeted Innovation to Maximise Performance

Targeted Innovation to Maximise Performance

Overview

Innovation provides an unrivalled tool for developing a competitive edge over the rest of the market. However, a balance between innovation and conservation, where returns on existing innovations are maximised, is required. Organisations can overstretch on new initiatives without realising potential value from existing ones without this balance.

The organisational transparency afforded by Business Process Management enables a targeted approach to innovation. Using a strategy-driven process prioritisation, innovation initiatives can be designed around specific, critical processes or functions. This provides a competitive edge in the areas that have the maximum impact for attracting and retaining clients.
