Digital technologies have raised customer expectations for responsive, seamless online services and information-enriched products. Many companies are struggling to meet those expectations and will continue to struggle unless they embrace enterprise architecture. Enterprise architecture is the holistic design of people, processes, and technology to execute digitally inspired strategic goals. Every negative customer interaction via a company app, website, telephone call, or service provider exposes architectural inadequacies. Left unresolved, these issues will destroy formerly great organizations.


Companies are being bombarded with digital technologies, such as social, mobile, analytics, cloud, the Internet of Things, robotics, artificial intelligence, block chain, edge computing and as well as a steady procession of future technologies. This constant stream of technology change has the potential to disrupt your business.

At the same time, many businesses are designed around product verticals. Those verticals optimize profits and define a customer experience for that specific product independently of the rest of the organization. The digital economy, however, rewards integrated solutions, which require that people work across product lines. To meet these demands, companies must rethink how work gets done and how that work relies on people, processes, and technology.

Enterprise architecture designs an organization’s critical people-process-technology bundles in a way that facilitates both operational excellence and adaptability to change. Enterprise architecture breaks processes and products into components that can be used across business verticals. Enterprise architecture influences strategy and guides companies through radical redesign.

Join us for the October 22nd SIM Minnesota meeting where we will review the disciplines within Enterprise Architecture, the value that this role provides and hear stories from Enterprise Architect's about their experience. Q & A will follow.
