A global survey on Enterprise Architecture. Topics include IT Complexity, the evolution and scope of current EA practices, and the tangible benefits of investing in higher EA maturity.

Farid Mheirs insight:

WHY IT MATTERS: a survey conducted by LeanIX, an EA tool maker, conducted mostly on IT and EA professionals, is thus very biaised. Nevertheless the results are interesting. As an EA practionner of 20 years, I know EA can bring value if 2 conditions are met

1- business should lead EA, not the CIO

2- EA is a community, not a business unit or a group within IT

More on this view later, stay tuned...

Enterprise-architecture best practices for digital transformation via @McKinsey

Enterprise-architecture best practices for digital transformation via @McKinsey | WHY IT MATTERS: Digital Transformation | Scoop.it
Focusing on business processes can lead companies to end up with multiple systems that perform similar functions, such as customer-relationship management. Concentrating too much on technology can cause EA teams to organize their work around building applications rather than enabling the business.
Farid Mheirs insight:

WHY IT MATTERS: this article relates to a recent post on EA tools. The conclusion is clear: EA should focus on delivering what business needs instead of pushing for technology infrastructure. Instead of having milestones related to building single sign on or identity management solutions, align roadmap to the delivery of employee self-service portal for HR or supplier B2B eCommerce for supply chain BU. Basically align the EA roadmap on the business priorities.

The Forrester Wave on Enterprise Architecture Management Suites reminds us that EA tools change but inherent problems of EA remain... | WHY IT MATTERS: Digital Transformation | Scoop.it

In our 35-criterion evaluation of enterprise architecture management suites (EAMS) providers, we identified the 12 most significant ones — Ardoq, Atoll Technologies, Avolution, BiZZdesign, BOC Group, LeanIX, MEGA International, Orbus Software, Planview, QPR Software, Software AG, and UNICOM Systems — and researched, analyzed, and scored them. This report shows how each provider measures up and helps enterprise architecture (EA) professionals select the right one for their needs.

Farid Mheirs insight:

WHY IT MATTERS: enterprise architecture remains a great idea with awful delivery IMHO.

Great idea because most organizations do not have a complete high level view of their organizations from a business, data, application and technology in order to drive governance and security and manage project portfolio priorities.

Awful delivery because most EA groups tends to isolate themselves in ivory towers, with hard to define value and limited deliverables.

EA tools, in the same vein, have traditionally been bloated versions of difficult to maintain and often stale information, the main issue not being the software but the content and its maintenance...

CIOs should think like #startups and industrialize business innovation if they want to stay relevant via @Deloitte | WHY IT MATTERS: Digital Transformation | Scoop.it

​As technology transforms how business is done, innovation has become a strategic imperative. CIOs can play a leading role in driving and industrializing technology-led innovation.

Farid Mheirs insight:

WHY IT MATTERS: a very good article that highlights the CIOs goals to stay relevant with regards to innovation but that there is a lot of work ahead of them. Getting help from the outside is a must it seems because of many limitations within their own teams.

Scott Fuhriman's curator insight, June 11, 2019 2:30 PM

Innovation should now be a core driver of organizations.

 

I find the following interesting, should more be invested?:
"Seventy-two percent of CIOs say projects that generate revenue or focus on innovation and emerging technology are the most appealing to CEOs and executive leadership, but only 18 percent of technology budgets are spent on these types of projects."

IT operations teams struggle to maintain service quality when they apply legacy approaches to monitoring. Infrastructure and operations leaders responsible for monitoring should take the steps outlined here to increase their effectiveness and limit their exposure to challenges raised by the cloud.

Farid Mheirs insight:

WHY IT MATTERS: cloud computing has moved infrastructure to the cloud, limiting visibility and control of IT teams on key components of the infrastructure that may be required to monitor and troubleshoot. This report from Gartner highlights the different solutions and skills required to cover cloud computing solutions from private cloud to SaaS.

Digitalization is now going mainstream. For example, the Economist has devoted a full issue to it.  “Whether you are going for a run, watching TV or even just sitting in traffic, virtually every activity creates a digital trace—more raw material for the data distilleries. Meanwhile, artificial-intelligence (AI) techniques such as Machine Learning extract more value from data. Algorithms can predict when a customer is ready to buy, a jet-engine needs servicing or a person is at risk of a disease.”

Farid Mheirs insight:

WHY IT MATTERS: AI and machine learning will be embedded into every product and solution in the future, as evidenced by this recent SAP technology vision. For most companies, they will need to focus on data gathering, cleaning and building capabilities to analyze and use AI insights than to develop their own AI solutions.

How enterprise architects can help ensure success with digital transformations is actually a very sad statement about the value that EA groups bring to organizations via @McKinsey HT @daniellambert07 | WHY IT MATTERS: Digital Transformation | Scoop.it

Digital transformations are, by their very nature, complex. There are multiple moving parts, integrated processes and technologies, and the need for expertise that cannot already be found in the company. In most firms, however, there is a small cadre of technology professionals who can impose relative order on the proceedings. CEOs and CIOs should consider the benefits of pulling enterprise architects closer to the center: bringing them to the table with business leaders, devising metrics that reveal the value of their work, and creating the type of incentives that will challenge them and prompt them to stay for the long term. Such an approach is critical not just for limiting risk and protecting against the potential challenges and downsides of digital transformations but also for ensuring a clear upside—a close and lasting partnership between the business and IT.

Farid Mheirs insight:

WHY IT MATTERS: I've practiced enterprise architecture since I learned from the best at Capgemini back in 2003. Although the concept and the tools are great, and I use them daily, I find the EA groups in large organizations is quite shameful. This article provides insights into what EA groups can bring.

When Your Employees Post Passwords Online in public Trello boards and other public SaaS solutions you may have serious data security issues via @brianKrebs #KrebsOnSecurity

When Your Employees Post Passwords Online in public Trello boards and other public SaaS solutions you may have serious data security issues via @brianKrebs #KrebsOnSecurity | WHY IT MATTERS: Digital Transformation | Scoop.it

Last month’s story about organizations exposing passwords and other sensitive data via collaborative online spaces at Trello.com only scratched the surface of the problem. A deeper dive suggests a large number of government agencies, marketing firms, healthcare organizations and IT support companies are publishing credentials via public Trello boards that quickly get indexed by the major search engines.

Farid Mheirs insight:

WHY IT MATTERS: this article is a reminder that the use of public software as a service tools may lead to exposure of critical and private corporate data. In the past, locking everything down behind corporate firewall and network meant this was not possible. At the same time, remote work and collaboration with partners around the globe was very difficult. CIOs would like to return to the good old days but users certainly do not want that. Proper governance must be enforced with these new tools and systems.

Who Owns Digital Transformation? According To A New Survey, It's Not The CIO

Who Owns Digital Transformation? According To A New Survey, It's Not The CIO | WHY IT MATTERS: Digital Transformation | Scoop.it
Digital transformation is one of those terms that seems to mean, well, everything.

Whether it's IT, marketing, CX, HR, service and support, etc., each group, in their own right, is investing in advancement. It's not [...]
Farid Mheirs insight:

Another data point that shows CIOs and technology teams are not able to carry the digital transformation in organizations.

 

WHY IS THIS IMPORTANT

Digital transformation is more profound than simply installing new technology or tools. What this recent survey shows is that it often is customer-focussed, which leads the marketing team to carry the ball forward. Because the digital transformation *also* implies new technologies, we see tension between CIOs and CMOs, which often lead to internal struggles, duplication of effort and sometimes the creation of the CDO role to sit between the 2.

Digital technology is revolutionising business but the role that IT departments play in digital transformation is not clear.
Farid Mheirs insight:

A survey of 812 senior executives continues to show that companies expect IT and the CIO to drive the digital transformation but that IT department are not ready or equipped to lead the way. Been like that for a long time. Sad.

IT talent shortage is global via @HBR

IT talent shortage is global via @HBR | WHY IT MATTERS: Digital Transformation | Scoop.it

A lot of research is available about the IT talent shortage in the United States. The unemployment rate in just about any metropolitan area is close to zero for many functions, despite the recent slight slowdown in hiring linked to ever-greater cloud adoption.

 

12 TIPS TO SURVIVE THE TALENT CRISIS

Proven Advice from CIOs and HR Leaders

  1. Ensure team members feel they’re part of something greater than themselves
  2. Invest in coaching, mentoring, training—one CIO said he’ll cut headcount before he cuts his training budget. Curt Carver, CIO at the University of Alabama at Birmingham, sets aside 3 percent of his budget for training, “no matter what”
  3. Hire less for skills and more for emotional maturity and the ability to learn and change
  4. Offer interesting opportunities, such as working with the latest technologies or creating an application that will make a real di erence in customers’ lives
  5. Rethink the org chart and keep it flexible—Carver redesigns his every 12 to 18 months
  6. Redesign work around projects rather than roles, then tap into nontraditional sourcing methods such as crowdsourcing and talent platforms; not everything needs to be done by an FTE
  7. Use social media and speaking events to find and engage top talent
  8. Use open source as a magnet for talent by having your team become part of (and contribute to) the community
  9. Create affiliations with colleges/universities (course design, internships, etc.) and even K-12
  10. Invest in diversity programs that go beyond filling your corporate social responsibility requirements— for example, retaining women returning to the workforce or hiring individuals with autism
  11. Build a strong collaborative relationship between IT and HR
  12. Be clear about what you’re offering upfront (culture, mission, type of projects), and then be consistent in delivering that
Farid Mheirs insight:

A survey of CIOs shows challenges ir recruiting talent for IT organizations.

 

WHY THIS IS IMPORTANT

Companies focus on technical expertise and skills but recruiting millennials means that other characteristics are as important - if not more - such as attitude and emotional maturity. The old saying remains true: hire on skills, fire on attitude...

1Seth Hodge's curator insight, October 11, 2016 11:25 PM

A. The indicator being discussed is unemployment of IT workers/support.

B. The article talks about how there are many jobs in the IT industry that are overlooked somehow and how many of these jobs provide good income and don't all require over the top certification requirements. Also tells about how to get some of these jobs. It also seems to point out that there are this many jobs that need to be filled but the unemployment rate is still sort of high for having so many vacant jobs.

C.I did not realize there was such a huge demand for IT support.

2016 Trusted Access Report: The current state of device security health

2016 Trusted Access Report: The current state of device security health | WHY IT MATTERS: Digital Transformation | Scoop.it

5 key recommendations

  1. Don’t reject BYOD — be prepared for it. Give your IT administrators actionable data on device ownership and health that can inform risk-based access control decisions.
  2. Encourage safe computing practices and good security hygiene, such as running regular security updates or using device encryption, passcodes and additional authentication to protect systems and data.
  3. Configure systems and deploy policies that enable automatic updates for as much software as possible to remove some of the friction that users feel when manually installing updates. We found that an overwhelming number of out-of-date browsers and systems don’t take basic steps like enabling automatic updates.
  4. Switch to browser platforms that update more frequently and automatically, like Google Chrome.
  5. Disable Java and prevent Flash from running automatically on corporate devices, and enforce this on user-owned devices through endpoint access policies and controls.
Farid Mheirs insight:

DUO security publishes a report on security findings from over 2M devices its software is installed on and provides recommendations from its findings

 

WHY THIS IS IMPORTANT

Security is better, it seems, when users use software that update themselves automatically. Unfortunately, because enterprises have to pay to keep software up to date, most computers are out of date from a security standpoint. Leaders should prioritize keeping systems up to date or favour solutions with automated and free updates. As the paper describes, there are many out there, you just have to look for them carefully.
