The architecture seeks to represent the contextual knowledge of an organization in terms of information, process, capability, performance either as it exists or as it is intended to be. 

Business Architecture is like a compass tool for the organization to navigate through the right direction, implement a good strategy by enhancing the processes of problem diagnosis (current state), setting up policy/guideline, doing gap/impact analysis to define where and how, that bridges the gap between what is required and how it is implemented, and taking cohesive actions in change management. 

The information provided in the architecture provides guidance/direction on what steps need to be taken by the board and senior executives to reach their strategic goals for the company.

Business Architecture can be invaluable for performing a wide array of services, including strategic positions via competitive analysis, process optimization and governance, culture design & reinvention, as well as a wide array of other business functions. The ultimate goal of Business Architecture is to envision and design the future state of the business.

Business Architecture is a critical framework that should support the requirements of the business and will need to be adjusted periodically. It helps the management build the roadmap on how an organization executes their strategy by taking into account varying business factors such as the maturity of the company, its business goals, its technology landscape, etc, to facilitate transformative changes, integrate different pieces into a holistic organization and design a strong governance model to improve business agility and maturity.

Thereby, it helps to facilitate the varying business dialogues, the planning and communicating of business change initiatives, the analysis of business issues, opportunities, or marketing dilemmas, develop further architecture standards to become an instrument for leading changes.

Any architecture has to accommodate the fact that all organizations operate simultaneously as open and closed systems. It's an important tool for business executives to fine tune critical success factors, facilitate continuous digital dialogues, optimize process coherence and improve business agility.

Innerconnectioninofphilosophy&architecture In face of constant changes, frequent disruptions, management is both science and art. The traditional linear management practices working in the considerably static industrial age are simply not sufficient to manage hyper-connected, interdependent business. Philosophy allows the management to ask insightful questions which are still current and meaningful to architect a purposeful organization for achieving high performance results. Evolutionary business architecture conveys the management philosophy as the abstract wisdom to set guidelines for business change; navigate the business transformation journey step-wisely.

The “Future of CIO” Blog has reached 7 million page views with about #9300th blog posting in 59+ different categories of leadership, management, strategy, digitalization, change/talent, etc. The “Digital Master” book series includes 29 books to share insight from the multidimensional digital lens and perceive the multi-faceted impact the digital era upon us is making to businesses and society. The content richness is not for its own sake, but to convey the vision and share the wisdom. Blogging is not about writing, but about thinking and innovating new ideas; it’s not just about WHAT to say, but about WHY to say, and HOW to say it. It reflects the color and shade of your thought patterns, and it indicates the peaks and curves of your thinking waves. Unlike pure entertainment, quality and professional content takes time for digesting, contemplation and engaging, and therefore, it takes time to attract the "hungry minds" and the "deep souls." It’s the journey to amplify diverse voices and deepen digital footprints, and it's the way to harness your innovative spirit.


Yeah, I agree with you that now the world is running in minutes. Technology has made our world faster than before and easy for all of us. Now we can do anything by sitting in the house using the smartphone.
