Successful ICT transformation requires an agile and structured methodology. Here, operators can benefit from implementing industry-standard Enterprise Architecture (EA) principles.
EA is a practice that bridges the gap between business, IT and networks. It allows an organization to see itself in terms of a holistic view of its components, and can be used to identify and analyze the key dimensions that are needed to provide a solution. As a result, EA is relevant to the development of the whole enterprise – from business strategy, models and processes, to information systems and technical infrastructure.
Operators should apply EA principles to steer decision-making toward the evolution of the future state architecture. They should establish an EA practice as a central planning capability, and as an ongoing program with a solid foundation and tool to support it.
