Modern Enterprise Architects are clever and dynamic; leveraging the digital world to help them do their job. They are the modern superhero. Like most superheroes, they need sidekicks to help them defeat the villains of technical debt and lack of application rationalization. A modern Enterprise Architect needs to work with their sidekicks with the use of cool gadgets like: workflows, chats, walls, hashtags, post, and review notes... In a world where everything goes fast, modern Enterprise Architect need to rely on the collaborative work and collect feedback quickly. New collaborative features of our new software release (HOPEX V2R1 for our customers) provides outstanding features to speedup collaboration work, and be the superhero that saves the day.
If you were an Enterprise Architect in the 90’s, you probably looked like Superman. A superhero that does everything by himself, that has foresight, that is fast learning and that saves the day alone. You were feeling a little lonely in the world; nobody knew who you really were and you could not share your secret nor ask anyone to help you. As superman, your place to rest was your fortress of solitude, not that exciting to say the least.
At that time, you had to run fast in and out of workshops to collect information; you had to be Flash to have the time, in a year, to collect information or to spread the word on the latest architectural pattern.
Unfortunately for you, Enterprise Architecture tools were reflecting the situation.
But digitalization came in and impacted the Enterprise Architecture practice, thus impacting the role. “The increasing interconnections of people and devices also reinforce the need for enterprise architects to consider all of their organization’s ecosystems”, Amy Forni, said from Gartner.
So just like modern superhero had to adapt, enterprise architect must adapt. In this recent TV show Barry Allen assembles a team with The Arrow, Thea, the Legends, and Supergirl to do his job. Just like today, modern enterprise architect must interact with product owner, project leader, scrum master, or Data Protection Officer (DPO).
To speak with this new audience Enterprise Architects cannot rely only on their own skills. They need helps and Enterprise Architecture tools should provide them the means to be faster, more efficient with good foresight to trends.
So just like modern superhero you will need collaborative tools to:
These features are a “must have” to modern Enterprise Architect. Especially if you want to be a superhero. So be a superhero, be collaborative and leverage our new HOPEX collaborative features mentioned above.
