New technologies and trends (think of artificial intelligence, machine learning, IoT, robotics, wearables etc) are lowering barriers of entry and disrupting the traditional businesses, making it impossible for established companies and industries to ignore them. These new emerging technologies, have also impacted businesses that want to reap the rewards of transforming into a digital enterprise.

But, this digital transformation needs to be successful in order to create new opportunities for growth, performance and competitive advantage. The fundamental structure of an organisation’s business, information systems and technology, for delivering a business-driven approach will change the way we manage the digital business.

To reduce the complexity associated with digital business transformation, the Enterprise Architects or EA team can play a central role in overseeing the entire systems architecture, including business strategies, processes and all the way to IT infrastructure.

The EA team can also help to establish new rules and processes around technology usage, to ensure consistency across business units and functions and how they collaborate together in realizing the mission and vision of the enterprise. This in turn aids organisational leadership, in driving the whole business transformation towards achieving its goals.

ATD Solution in collaboration with IASA; a global association for all IT architects; recently organised the IASA Digital Enterprise Architecture Seminar in Kuala Lumpur.

Aaron Tan Dani, Chief Architect at ATD Solution and President of Iasa in APAC, presents about traditional versus digital EA

During this event, Aaron Tan Dani, Chief Architect at ATD Solution and President of Iasa in APAC, presented the comparison of the Traditional EA (up to 2013) in contrast with the Digital EA (since 2014) that has evolved for the full alignment with the digital context that we are in today. Aaron believes that every enterprises need to adopt this Digital EA as a culture to cushion the impact of digital disruptions and being able to do continuous transformation using Digital Enterprise Map.

CEO and founder of Iasa Global, Paul Preiss, presented “Mastering Digital Business Transformation Complexity through EA”. He shared about EA best practices and case studies of how organisations should formulate its digital strategies and overcome new challenges during their digital business transformation journey.

Why Do We Need Enterprise Architecture in Digital Transformation?

Since the 1980s, IT departments were only seen as enabling worker productivity, and making sure everything from emails to the Internet to our PCs run smoothly. This was still the computerisation or automation era, and projects were tech-focused; every time there was a new application, new hardware and software were purchased while time, resources and budgets were also fixed and allocated before IT could ask the business what were the goals it wanted to achieve.
