Idea Behind the Digital Architecture Workshop
Mastering IT Architecture for Digital Enterprise in 2 Days Workshop
Digital Architecture is the key to Digital Transformation
Digital Transformation refers to creating business models and value creation in the digital economy by leveraging business process change and process automation using digital technologies. There are inherent challenges in converting existing business models into digital opportunities.
The idea of Digital Architecture" is often confused with another IT "Implementation". The challenges related to growing IT complexity, maintenance overheads, technology obsolescence, time to market, relatively inexperienced resource pool have only added to stress to the Project Sponsors, Product Heads, Project Managers and IT Heads.
It's encouraging to see that "IT Architecture" is getting recognized as a critical element for digital enterprise and value creation.
At ICMG, we have been applying Enterprise & IT Architecture since 1999 when the use of word "Architecture" was still rare in the context of Enterprise or IT. In the last 20 years, we have seen growing adoption and interest in managing.
Resolve conflicting demands of multiple stakeholders
This two-day workshop provides an excellent opportunity to understand how to align the Business goals with digital IT Investments.
We will co-relate the patterns of problem & solutions of other industries. One can learn how to execute digital transformation using six easy steps.
Senior executives can gain insight into the idea of Digital Enterprise and how to realize strategy execution and effective decision making, Product Managers can create a useful business case for a digital product or product line.
Solution Owners will acquire the skill to create anatomy of digital solutions consisting of six key components (data models, application model, network model, rule models, event model), architecture disciplines' best practices to reduce expenditure and time-to-market.
Technology implementers can learn how to define Quality of Service (QoS) such as Reliability, Performance etc. on Functional Requirements using Quality Attributes for digital solutions. Also, how to create effective traceability across IT elements, process elements, operational elements for relationship matrix & change management.
In addition, this program will equip IT heads to tackle Digital IT challenges due to growing Application portfolio, Big data, AI, Robotics, IoT SaaS and cloud-based solutions.
One of the common problem related to the conflicting demands of multiple stakeholders can also be quickly resolved.
Enterprise Anatomy as the basis of Digital Architecture
In the last 20 years, iCMG Consultants have instrumental in creating services to support architecture ecosystem across the globe (42 plus countries). Every year, our consultants are part of hundreds of engagements, learning & certification delivery programs ranging from SMEs to Fortune 100 companies. In the last 10 years alone, over 2000 case studies are evaluated and assessed by the ICMG team.
This workshop will address how to manage the challenges of the digital enterprise using Enterprise Architecture. The key is to understand "enterprise anatomy" (building blocks) and interaction between them. ICMG methodology is inspired from medical practice. There are two important aspects to look at, one is the understanding of "enterprise anatomy" and second is the ability to create “digital x-rays."
An enterprise doctor should be able to use the methodology to isolate and treat digital disorders in a timely manner. We have seen the applicability across a wide range of problems across several business verticals and company of various sizes.
The idea is inspired from medical practice, wherein a medical doctor who understands the human anatomy, uses the symptoms (narrated by a patient) to understand the problem and narrow it down to specific organ/organs, then applies x-ray techniques to get necessary insight, and uses the x-ray for diagnosis before arriving at possible solutions options.
Interestingly, this methodology of problem-solving had been a great success in the medical practice which has succeeded in handling human body disorders in a timely manner resulting in longevity of human beings.
70% Time in Case studies and Hands-on sessions
With carefully chosen case studies and hands-on practice sessions, Business managers and IT Managers can learn how to innovate and create solutions for Digital Enterprise. Also, you will also learn how one can manage multiple digital solutions at the same time. What makes this methodology effective is the ability to manage the whole thing in a 45 days cycle i.e. lean and timeliness.
If you are thinking about how your enterprise can take advantage of new digital opportunities, leverage its existing assets to create new product and services, become lean and use its resources optimally, then workshop may be an answer.
Of course, this workshop will also help you to clear many doubts about how to effectively use Enterprise & IT Architecture as a basis for Digital Enterprise.
