World-Class EA: The Agile Enterprise

 

 

The concept of “agile” has recently come to the fore, typically in connection with technical activities, such as software development. Subsequently, the agile approach has been extended and applied to, for example, solution architecture activities.

 

However, we suggest that agile is in fact a way of working, a mindset. It applies to more than just software development, or architecture, or any other one area of activity.

 

The real benefit comes from applying an end-to-end agile delivery approach throughout the enterprise.

    Contents:

    • How to make business intelligence
    • Give your business a BI boost for less
    • How agility will shape the future of Business intelligence in your firm

  • Computer Weekly – 12 January 2016: How open source is beating proprietary software

    In this week’s Computer Weekly, our latest buyer’s guide assesses the impact of open source software on corporate IT and how its growth is underpinning the digital revolution. We examine the prospects for cloud in financial services as regulators give their approval. And we ask if Uber is really part of a new business model for the so-called sharing economy. Read the issue now.

    Buyer’s guide to enterprise open source - Part 1 of 3: Open source – it’s the logical alternative

    It’s round two in the fight between open source and commercial software, and open source is punching well above its weight.

    The Financial Conduct Authority is open to cloud – but what of the firms it regulates?

    The FCA says cloud computing – even in its public form – is acceptable for finance organisations. But will they adopt it?

    Digital platform more than taxi service: Is Uber an app economy paradigm?

    Uber’s significance may lie more in its being a data-rich platform that taps into unused human economic resources than in its role as a passenger pickup service.

    Interview: Departing DVLA technology chief says ‘job done’ and moves back to the centre

    DVLA’s former CTO returns to Cabinet Office after executing ‘exemplar’ government digital programme.

    Creating a CIO legacy beyond the systems

    So much of what a business does today needs to be driven by technology that IT leaders have a choice between leading and lagging.

    Flash and storage tiering: Top five things to know

    Automated storage tiering boosts storage efficiency and saves money, but why is tiering different from caching, why is it suited for use with flash and how do suppliers differ?
