Most Important Business Architecture Book of 2015 November 25 2015

Most Important Business Architecture Book Recently Published

WASHINGTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--“Business and Dynamic Change: The Arrival of Business Architecture” represents the collaborative work of the industry’s top experts and thought leaders. As explained by best-selling author Keith Swenson, Chair of the Business Architecture Working Group, “The chapters in this book are from visionaries who see the need for business leaders to define their organizations to be agile and robust in the face of external changes.”

“The chapters in this book are from visionaries who see the need for business leaders to define their organizations to be agile and robust in the face of external changes.”

Swenson adds, “The people making the architecture cannot know the pressures that will be faced. Instead, it must support leaders and executives within the organization to make consistently good decisions on how to adapt their practices. The architecture is not a plan that anticipates all the decisions, instead it embodies a set of core guiding principles that enable decision making.”

In 2013, the Oxford English Dictionary added the phrase"Internet of things" to its hallowed pages, along with such neologisms as Bitcoin (a virtual currency), selfie (a self-portrait photo), twerk (a new dance move), and fauxhawk (a mohawk hairstyle achieved with gel and a comb).

"But what exactly is the Internet of things, and how might the emerging technology change our lives?

"The Internet of things is a concept that aims to extend the benefits of the regular Internet—constant connectivity, remote control ability, data sharing, and so on—to goods in the physical world. Foodstuffs, electronics, appliances, collectibles: All would be tied to local and global networks through embedded sensors that are "always on.""

 With estimates of 30 billion or more connected devices, there will be far too many devices and interactions will be far too complex to keep pace with traditional software techniques.

The only way to make sense of the flow of information is to visualize them as part of processes that exchange and process the information byproduct forming something we call BPM Everywhere.

The book discusess critical issues currently facing BPM adopters and practitioners, such as the key roles played by process mining uncovering engagement patterns and the need for process management platforms to coordinate interaction and control of smart devices.

Don’t hold your breath for the industrial IoT platform February 18 2015

Don’t hold your breath for the industrial IoT platform

The industrial IoT is messy, and early adopters should be ready for some DIY before platforms emerge.
https://gigaom.com/2014/11/16/dont-hold-your-breath-for-the-industrial-iot-platform/
Layna Fischer's insight:

"The industrial IoT will eventually eclipse consumer markets, in terms of both the number of connected devices and the volume and value of connections. But the market’s potential is so large because it’s not just one market. The only thing salinity sensors, tire pressure monitors and nuclear density gauges have in common is that they’re all very important devices that someone wants to connect (though not necessarily to one another).

"The industrial IoT is a nearly limitless collection of use cases, each with its own ecosystem of hardware, APIs, networks, security protocols and financial constraints. And unlike the consumer industry, which is forced by markets toward openness and standardization, it’s perfectly reasonable to expect that in many industries, vendors will create and maintain proprietary standards for the foreseeable future. All of that adds up to a mess for the enterprise, device manufacturer, or ISV that wants to get the jump on their competition and lead the charge."

Be interesting to see what emerges from the minds and thoughts of the co-authors on the upcoming book "BPM Everywhere: BPM and the Internet of Things." 

The book will discuss critical issues currently facing BPM adopters and practitioners, such as the key roles played by process mining uncovering engagement patterns and the need for process management platforms to coordinate interaction and control of smart devices.

Thriving on Adaptability January 20 2015

Thriving On Adaptability

The Foreword by Surendra Reddy is particularly insightful:

"ACM also helps organizations focus on improving or optimizing the line of interaction where our people and systems come into direct contact with customers. It’s a whole different thing; a new way of doing business that enables organizations to literally become one living-breathing entity via collaboration and adaptive data-driven biological-like operating systems."
