In my recent blog post on stakeholder communication, I described various basic forms of communication about architecture, with diagrams, tables, heatmaps and the like. What I did not touch upon in that post is how you can enrich your architecture (and other) models with additional data and display the results in various dashboards. That is […]
Challenges to business enterprise architecture adaptation
A key challenge to enterprise architecture is delivering business value at speed and providing short-term business outcomes while also executing on a longer-term strategy. Communicating clearly with management about options and alternatives in a complex environment is not easy. To control this complexity, you need to have all the relevant facts at your fingertips, but these are often spread out across many different sources and systems. So, the question becomes: How do you ensure your architecture practice is well-aligned with stakeholders’ needs and the organization’s strategy?

It supports the architect by guiding the creation of diagrams and it supports the reader by not creating overly complex diagrams (too many different types of concepts). Each viewpoint addresses a specific concern, e.g. a capability […]
-Fabian Aulkemeier & Marc Lankhorst In our previous blog post, we outlined why Enterprise Architecture and Agile/DevOps are key in becoming an adaptive enterprise. We also described several use cases where EA can strengthen Agile and DevOps practices. Now, we want to focus on the ways in which you can connect these in practice, using […]
-Nick Reed and Bart Molenkamp In today’s business landscape, effective transformation is critical for enterprises to stay competitive. By definition, transformation happens over time. Enterprises (or some subsection thereof) have a current state which needs to change for the better. That change – however small or large – results in a different future state. With […]
Kevin Wallis (MOD ISS) & Marc Lankhorst (BiZZdesign) In the previous instalments in this series, we discussed common drivers for architecture in defence and industry, commonalities between the architecture practice in defence and the civil sector, and why the ArchiMate language was chosen as a recommended standard for expressing architectures in the NATO Architecture Framework […]
