Use Emerging ICT for competitive advantage

Cyclus addresses the architecture for today's business.


In a large modern enterprise, a rigorously defined framework is necessary to be able to capture a vision of the "entire system" There is a growing general awareness over the need for architects. An architecture is a proven approach for structuring the design. It implicits a professional control of implemented systems. As architecture guides the overall design, all ICT disciplines are involved and have their impact on the ICT and its place in the company.

Architecture in recent years is not exclusively placed in the set up and implementation of information infrastructures. Architecture impacts the business as a whole including its operational implementation. It covers operational organization and its implementation, what was more traditionally considered 'the infrastructure'. The here intended "infrastructure" is not only consisting out of technical provisions such as network facilities and computer platforms, and application design. Architecture includes and places itself in the common organizational set up of the business and its environment. It also consists out of shared data- and knowledge bases within and in-between the complete organization.

Quote:"The leaders of the organisation must have a clear vision of the desired future state of the entire system, including such dimensions as its business, its organisation and its ways of working. This vision must be used as a common context both for diagnosing the needs for changes and for managing the process of change, so that it acts as an integrating force for the multitude of apparently disparate changes to be made. The plan for making changes must be an integrated one." (Beckhard and Pritchard, 1992))
