Continue Your Change Projects in Times of Lockdown
So, suddenly we’re a remote company. For some of us, this is very new; for others, it’s how it has always been. For Enterprise Architecture (EA) it’s definitely a rare thing. One more reason why EAs need Ardoq.
Enterprise Architects haven’t exactly been spoiled with new and state-of-the-art technology. Case in point: there are only very few vendors in the 2019 Gartner Magic Quadrant for EA tools that are true SaaS solutions. The rest - and all the leading vendors, require some form of on-prem deployment.
How can large companies in this day and age manage their growing, diversifying and ever more complex application portfolio with technologies from the 80s and 90s?
The New “Business As Usual”
Just like productivity suites, such as G Suite from Google or Microsoft Office 365, SaaS is about to become the rule rather than the exception. Collaborating on documents and presentations from your remote office is “business as usual”. SaaS, with continuous releases and cloud storage, is what is expected in the workforce.
Your Enterprise Architecture should be no different.
Making Real Change and Impact
As an EA you are probably either starting or are in the midst of your digital transformation efforts. Then Covid-19 happens. For management, it might be easy to assume that, in this disrupted world, your business transformation efforts will also have to fall by the wayside. Don’t accept that. As long as people are healthy and can work remotely, this can be a time to really differentiate and push that change forward.
Did you know: Studies show that productivity actually increases when your employees work remotely.
As a business leader, your job is to enable your team with technology that actually empowers your people to continue achieving project goals, even in times of disruption. Now more than ever, you need to have higher expectations in your EA solution - expect Saas, expect continuous feature development, and expect agility from your team. That is how you can drive continuous, meaningful change.
Let us show you how Ardoq can bring value to your business.
