Leveraging Architecture in the New Style of IT
Today’s disruptive IT developments are affecting the practices of the IT architect.
The products that emerge from the digital information society challenge enterprise IT operations. They can deeply affect enterprise business models and IT departments in what can be called the New Style of IT.
The question is, to what extent will the new concepts – cloud, as-a-service and mobility – affect the way enterprises implement architecture competencies? Our whitepaper, “Leveraging Architecture in the New Style of IT,” considers these issues.
Architecting is about changing the frame of reference for the business-IT relationship. The time has come to let go of the business-IT alignment paradigm and enhance architecture practices to leverage the New Style of IT in businesses. IT operations have evolved over the years and are entering an era in which they develop into real-time brokers of IT resources, either internal or external. The shift from services to brokerage requires them to develop competences on smart buying and agility.
Architecture increasingly will become instrumental in considering the choices that are fundamental for enabling new or enhanced business models with the concepts that come with the New Style of IT. The paper sheds light on:
- Constant miniaturization
- Self-propelling qualities of data
- From system of record to systems of engagement
- Sustainability of current infrastructures
- Changes of in business and strategies
- Changes to the architecture realm (function and profession)
