In this, the age of digital, it’s abundantly clear that business survival is highly dependent on the IT organization’s ability to evolve technological infrastructure to keep pace with the rapidly changing demands on the business.
After all, seemingly all new business capabilities are dependent on new initiatives that are realized by digital systems and services. Simply, there can be no true business agility without an adaptive enterprise architecture. This is why we are so excited to be working with The Feld Group Institute (TFGI), the industry leader for enterprise architecture transformations that align business with IT.
For many years, TFGI has helped some of the world’s largest enterprises transform through enterprise architecture initiatives. During this time, they have identified a ‘Blind Spot’ between top-down, high-level, business-focused strategy and bottom-up, technology-focused execution.
Not surprisingly, TFGI’s method and SAFe align in many ways to address the blind spot – organizing around value, moving from projects to products, and more.
To that end, we are pleased to announce the release of the new White Paper Eliminating the Blind Spot: A Proven Approach to Enterprise Technology Strategy Formulation. You can download it here.
In this whitepaper, Jon Feld, TFGI COO, explains their Transformation Framework and how it integrates with SAFe. As our collaboration continues, we expect to provide additional guidance on how organizations can achieve business agility through better business and technology alignment.
