Descripción del producto

Descripción del producto

Does it seem you’ve formulated a rock-solid strategy, yet your firm still can’t get ahead? If so, construct a solid foundation for business execution—an IT infrastructure and digitized business processes to automate your company’s core capabilities. In Enterprise Architecture as Strategy: Creating a Foundation for Business Execution, authors Jeanne W. Ross, Peter Weill, and David C. Robertson show you how.

The key? Make tough decisions about which processes you must execute well, then implement the IT systems needed to digitize those processes. Citing numerous companies worldwide, the authors show how constructing the right enterprise architecture enhances profitability and time to market, improves strategy execution, and even lowers IT costs. Though clear, engaging explanation, they demonstrate how to define your operating model—your vision of how your firm will survive and grow—and implement it through your enterprise architecture. Their counterintuitive but vital message: when it comes to executing your strategy, your enterprise architecture may matter far more than your strategy itself.

Biografía del autor

Weill is Foundation Chair of Management and director of the Centre for Management of Information Technology at Melbourne Business School.

4.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas A good primer and EA reference 19 de noviembre de 2013
Por Mohan Babu K - Publicado en
Formato: Tapa dura Compra verificada
Enterprise Architecture As Strategy is perhaps the most quoted book on the topics. Online forums on the topic quote this as one of the few really good references on the topic; and I agree.

The authors do a great job of introducing and packaging concepts in Enterprise Architecture – operating model, maturity model, core diagrams, IT engagement model – that are referenced by EA practitioners, consultants and academics alike. The case studies based on academic research of over “200 companies” keeps the narrative grounded.

Who is this book for?

• Practicing Enterprise Architects and EA consultants will find the topics and case studies refreshing. It certainly got me reflecting on my employer’s target operating model
• The book speaks to business executives as much as it does to EA practitioners. Executives will also find it a handy reference that can equip them to “govern” IT strategies
• Those looking to get into EA (many IS/Technical Architects, business analysts and process consultants) will find the book a good introduction to EA “big picture” topics; and perhaps an introduction to some consulting jargon

The book is not an EA “cook book” or a “how to” guide. Unfortunately, learning how-to-do-EA will only come with experience and a few grey hair.

Jeanne Ross and her associates Peter Weill and David Robertson started out with a research study back in 1995. Intending to to publish technology infrastructure transformations but instead have put together a great insightful read which describes how to design an enterprise architecture and help drive success in your business. This book described the vision and steps to design a solid transformation and how to mature your IT organization to align with your business goals. With the support of the MIT/Sloan center for information systems research these folks conducted a study covers over 2 dozen brand name firms and over 100 surveys conducted in which they drew body of evidence to build a foundation for execution. It's a recommended read for IT managers, Senior managers, strategists and enterprise architects. If you want your IT organization to work smarter and not harder, read this book and spread the word.

4.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas Gives the big picture. But nothing specific. 12 de marzo de 2013
Por Jaewoo Kim - Publicado en
Formato: Tapa dura Compra verificada
This is a worthwhile book to read for every IT leaders. It should set the right trajectory of changing the IT operational and business model to deliver the maximum business value.

This book lacks, however, thorough empirical research and has almost no quantifiable data to backup its suppositions. It also lacks details on "how" to achieve the objectives set by the authors. For example, at Optimized Core level, the authors say that different business units should share data and use standardized processes. But what does "shared" data mean? Does it mean to use the same data warehouse? or just have a master OLTP data that is derived across enterprise? They never get to much detail.

This is a book great overview of the Enterprise Architecture with real great insights and suggestions on IT can better deliver value. Just don't expect them to exactly outline how you can do that.

1)Well thought out book on the big picture strategic thinking of how IT can better deliver better business value.
2)Stays away from explaining technical conceptual frameworks (no SOA, data warehousing etc) that detracts from the big picture message.

1)No technical details on how to build a better IT.
2)No evidence of any empirical research or quantifiable data to backup the suppositions.
4.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas Finally a book that evangelizes Enterprise Architecture as an enterprise (business) activity instead of merely an IT initiative 3 de febrero de 2014

I read this book after Lou Gerstner's book on Elephants (Who says Elephants Can't Dance?) which was perfect. Gerstner shows how he needs all the influence he can muster to change IBM to become the profitable behemoth it once was. More importantly he shows that this change needs to be facilitated by the upperest management. Ross shows in her book how Enterprise Architecture and corporate change for that matter can only succeed when it is facilitated by the upper management, hence Gerstner's book is very illustrative for Ross' point.

The book is clearly based on real life cases, unfortunately only outlining success stories. But it is based on what can be achieved and more importantly what has been achieved. Making this not an Ivory Tower EA mumbo-jumbo book you find so often.

Clearly dated, the stories, cases, are not at the last maturity level she mentions, and the companies she discusses are all looking for massive business integration by implementing ERP systems. Not something many of us would base our business on these days (2014). New evolutions like Cloud and SOA are not in there. But the story holds true.

5.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas This is an amazing book 15 de abril de 2014

I've been interested in and studying the craft of Enterprise Architecture for the past three years and only recently purchased this book because I had read many of the others, this was a mistake.

This book, in my opinion, should have been read first to gain and understanding of why there is a need for EA in the first place. Topics such as selection of the Operating Model, development of the Enterprise Architecture and the Engagement Model are covered in-depth.

What I appreciated even more is this book is the result of years of significant research and backed up by hard numbers. And the numbers never lie.

I would also recommend reading "IT Savvy" after completing this book.
