Erik Wilde : Continuous Architecting:
Architecture for Ecosystems

(2) Summary

Architektur im Kontext digitaler Transformation kann auf zwei Ebenen betrachtet werden: Auf der Produkte-Ebene bestehen wiederverwendbare Bausteine, die Lösungen umsetzen. Auf der Landschafts-Ebene geht es darum, den Gesamtnutzen über alle Produkte hinweg zu verbessern. Produkte sollen so autonom wie möglich gemanaged werden, aber ihr Lebenszyklus soll in die Landschaft eingebettet und von ihr unterstützt werden. Continuous Architecting bietet eine Perspektive und Hilfestellungen, wie Architektur über diese beiden Ebenen hinweg so praktiziert werden kann, dass das resultierende Ökosystem an Produkten eine schnell und ständig verbesserte Grundlage für digitale Transformation bietet.

(10) Digital Transformation Definition

Digital Transformation means adapting an organization's strategy and structure to capture opportunities enabled by digital technology. (Nathan Furr and Andrew Shipilov, Digital Doesn't Have to Be Disruptive, Harvard Business Review 97(4), July/August 2019, pp. 94-103) [https://hbr.org/2019/07/digital-doesnt-have-to-be-disruptive]

(11) Digital Transformation Vision

Trust the Eagle!

Our Digital Transformation Initiative drives innovation by allowing us to more quickly develop and execute on new ideas. Innovation is the driving force that allows us to improve engagement with existing customers and to explore new markets.

The Digital Transformation Initiative will turn us into the leader of the industry. By increasing the number of customer touchpoints and using the resulting feedback to quickly and relentlessly adapt and improve our offerings, we will be able to outperform our competition and turn into the market leader within the next three years.
