What is the consequence of disorganised system architecture?
It is, of course, possible to develop an organisation's processes and information systems without a consistent architecture plan, but this often results in an incoherent systems entity that becomes difficult to manage. Even small changes to one part of the system can cause unexpected consequences elsewhere and result in heated disputes about responsibilities.
The risk of service disruptions can be avoided with careful architecture planning, or the modernisation of the entire IT environment, if necessary. You should strive to develop an IT architecture that meets the goals you have set for digitalisation and your business. Change requirements can extend from existing application systems to the entire service infrastructure.
Digitalisation often requires you to make changes to operating processes. With purposefully designed enterprise architecture, you always have an overall picture of all the processes, the data they require, the information systems you have in place, and the technologies that are in use.
