Architecture Modernization starts with making sense of your current enterprise applications and systems, mapping them to the business capabilities and business processes that they support, and designing the future state of the architecture with a technology strategy in mind that aligns with business goals and objectives. Sounds simple enough, right?
Some consultants or enterprise software vendors might try to sell you on the idea that an undertaking of this magnitude is easy, and that you can skip the line and not have to get your hands dirty by simply buying whatever "solution" it is that they're hawking.
Unfortunately I don't have access to the same magic wands and crystal balls that these consultancies and Silicon Valley tech bros seem to, so I take a slightly more thoughtful and methodical approach to getting this right. I've done this before. Things take time. Nothing is easy. But with the right technology strategy and leadership, coupled with world class application, data, and integration architecture capabilities, the effort can be transformational.
If your organization finds itself constrained by the complexities, friction, and dependencies created by maintaining and integrating with legacy systems, you are probably also experiencing problems with fragmented data and business processes, not to mention growing systemic inefficiencies, distrust in the organization's data and systems, and even potential business disruption.
Designing and implementing a modular enterprise systems architecture takes time and participation from across the organization, but the resulting business agility can put your organization in a position to focus on product and operational innovation, scale capacity, and provide visibility into key end-to-end processes to protect against instability and avoid potential compliance risk.
Future-ready systems create the conditions for novel business capabilities and services to emerge, enabling collaborative interactions and rewarding customer and employee experiences, driven by a deep alignment between enterprise technology strategy and business strategy.
