Most often this happens gradually, with small adjustments to strategy, organization, processes, or infrastructure.

But sometimes enterprises need to go beyond minor fixes and transform themselves, in response to a disruptive event or dramatically changing circumstances -- a merger, for example, or a new competitor. In this book, enterprise architecting experts Deborah Nightingale and Donna Rhodes offer a framework for enterprise transformation. Successful transformation, they believe, starts with a holistic approach, taking into consideration all facets of the enterprise and its environment rather than focusing solely on one factor -- information technology, for example, or organizational structure.

This is architecting the future enterprise creating a blueprint for what the enterprise will look like after the transformation.Nightingale and Rhodes introduce the ARIES (Architecting Innovative Enterprise Strategy) framework, including a ten enterprise element model and an architecting process model, and show how to apply it, from start to finish. They explain how to create a holistic vision for the future enterprise and how to generate concepts and alternative architectures- they describe techniques for evaluating possible architectures, tools for implementation planning, and strategies for communicating with stakeholders.

Nightingale and Rhodes offer real-world examples throughout, drawing on their work at MIT, with an extensive case study of enterprise transformation at a medical device manufacturer. An appendix offers two additional architecting projects.Seven Architecting Imperatives- Make architecting the initial activity in transformation. - Develop a comprehensive understanding of the enterprise landscape.

- Understand what stakeholders value and how that may change in the future.- Use multiple perspectives to see the whole enterprise.- Create an architecting team suited to the transformation challenges.- Engage all levels of leadership in transformation. - Architect for the enterprises changing world.
