The Mandate for a Strategic Approach to Management Architectures
There is broad agreement that the rate of business change is faster than it has ever been and that the pace will only quicken. As described in this important paper, broad based business changes result in rapidly escalating IT complexity, which makes the IT environment increasingly more difficult to manage and defend.
One of the drivers of the escalating rate of business change is the steps that companies are taking to become a digital business. According to Forbes, “digital business is the creation of new business designs by blurring the digital and physical worlds. It promises to usher in an unprecedented convergence of people, business and things that disrupts existing business models - even those born of the Internet and e-business eras.”
This white paper has three goals.
- Explain how rapidly evolving business and technology environments are significantly increasing the complexity of IT.
- Describe how it is difficult to manage and secure a complex IT environment with a siloed approach to management data.
- Explore primary sources of management data with a focus on the ability of data to enable IT to manage end-to-end environments.
