In last week's Cortex newsletter, I introduced the following diagram of a customer-centric digital architecture, where digital architecture is shorthand for enterprise architecture that's laser focused on driving digital transformation.   Customer-Centric Digital Architecture In the diagram above, the traditional architectural layers (represented here as concentric bands) have been grayed out in favor of customer journeys that cut across user interface, process, technology infrastructure, and data concerns, instead focusing on the preferences and behavior of individual customers as they conduct all their interactions with the company in question. The notion of customer journeys, of course, are central to the digital marketer's playbook. Clearly, enterprises should focus their digital efforts on such journeys, as they represent customer interactions over time. But... (more)

Seven Extreme Employee Journey Digital Principles | @ThingsExpo #IoT #DigitalTransformation

Digital means customer preferences and behavior are driving enterprise technology decisions to be sure, but let's not forget our employees. After all, when we say customer, we mean customer writ large, including partners, supply chain participants, and yes, those salaried denizens whose daily labor forms the cornerstone of the enterprise. While your customers bask in the warm rays of your digital efforts, are your employees toiling away in the dark recesses of your enterprise, pecking data into arcane screens as they struggle to retain a thread of sanity under the onslaught of m...

Your Digital Architecture | @CloudExpo #BigData #IoT #DevOps #DigitalArchitecture

Digital transformation impacts all corners of the business, and perhaps the most important corner to us here at Intellyx is the dark cul-de-sac where the enterprise architects huddle.

Instead, EAs must empower their organization to achieve success with digital efforts through the proper use of digital architecture... (more)

Spread the DevOps Virus in Your Organization (Part One) By @TheEbizWizard | @DevOpsSummit #DevOps

When an organization finally figures out how to get DevOps to work properly, it's unquestionably a beautiful thing. A team working together at full speed, delivering value to their organizations, while laughing in the face of roadblocks that threaten to impede their progress. Getting to this point wasn't easy. We had to learn numerous lessons, many from Agile and Lean and other practices, each of which offered part of the answer. And then the technology itself had to reach a level of maturity, both among the tools themselves as well as the infrastructure. Clearly, DevOps owes mu... (more)

Trimodal IT Doesn’t Fix Bimodal IT | @CloudExpo #DevOps #BigData #Microservices

Normal 0 false false false false EN-US X-NONE X-NONE The battle over bimodal IT is heating up. Now that there’s a reasonably broad consensus that Gartner’s advice about bimodal IT is deeply flawed – consensus everywhere except perhaps at Gartner – various ideas are springing up to fill the void. The bimodal problem, of course, is well understood. ‘Traditional’ or ‘slow’ IT uses hidebound, laborious processes that would only get in the way of ‘fast’ or ‘agile’ digital efforts. The result: incoherent IT strategies and shadow IT struggles that lead to dispersed, redundant, and ri... (more)
