- Plagued by rising IT costs, increased complexity, high or unknown risks?
- Struggling with impossible lead times or hard to implement technology changes?
- Worried about how your systems will keep pace with planned growth or remain compliant with regulation?
It seems you need to transform how you transform. Enterprise Architecture is a tool that can help.
Enterprise Architecture is a strategic asset, which when adopted, manages and aligns the business processes and Information Technology with a company’s overall strategy.
The Enterprise Architecture is a comprehensive framework and repository defining the:
- models that specify the current “legacy” and target “future” architectures,
- information technology structure, processes, and capabilities necessary to deliver the company’s themes, and
- change management processes necessary for adopting new technologies in response to changing business needs
At Imperators, our primary aim is ensuring we understand the context of your position, whether that refers to your business strategy, processes, drivers, goals, principles, existing trials or technology in use. We do this by using a blended approach from:
- MSP (Managing Successful Programmes)
- Prince 2 (Project Management Framework)
- SCRUM (Agile project management methodology)
- TOGAF (The Open Group Architecture Framework)
- PEAF (Pragmatic Enterprise Architecture Framework)
- Zachman Framework (Enterprise Architecture Framework)
Informing understanding in your teams enables them to drive effective transformation both internally and with your external suppliers.
We recognise that when well executed, this activity materially improves your desired outcomes. Providing focus, clarity and alignment to transformations, and improving understanding at all levels of the business.
We can help you establish this capability, review or improve an existing function, or supply you with professional and experienced people when more capacity is required.
By using common components, we gain the benefits of an evolved framework around purposes, scopes, principles, approaches and structure. At the same time, we tailor these components to the specific needs of the organisation, scale of transformation. Consequently, this removes the burden, realised in cost and time, of:
- Gathering information and research on all or most frameworks
- Understanding the differences, similarities, and type of information
- Deciding which frameworks and which parts of those frameworks make the most sense
- Reducing and distilling the information down to create a pragmatic and sustainable Framework
- Creating a set of quick start models, processes, spread sheets, PowerPoints, principles, metrics, etc
- Communicating and training (including creating the training material) in a bespoke framework
- Getting suppliers and external parties to use your bespoke framework
- Iterating around this cycle and adjusting as necessary
