Business Transformation is a key driver why companies should think about Enterprise Architecture – however this is never really well positioned in an EA Context.
In order to change this, i decided to post the release of the first Business Transformation Academy (BTA) Journal. BTA is an organization consisting of Customers, Business Schools and Consultants. The goal is to develop a holistic Methodology for managing Business Transformations.
Here the overview of the content:
This new quarterly publication is a great example of our global Business Transformation Academy (BTA) network with 110 active members, including leading academics, practitioners from diverse industries as well as experienced SAP consultants.
The journal provides a platform for sharing information and key learnings from business practice and research with clients, academics, and consultants.
To reflect different levels of learning about transformation, the journal contains the following four sections:
• The First section describes selected “Drivers” as a result of monitoring developments and trends. The articles in this issue examine IT-enhanced forms of sharing know-how in printed publications and of managing the world‘s growing energy challenges.
• The Second section, “Methodology and Research“, presents the findings of a recent statistical survey on business transformation as well as background information about the BTA, its philosophy and its methods.
• The Third section includes a variety of “Case Studies”, based on real transformation projects from all over the world. This issue showcases a very successful transformation in the manufacturing industry and an ongoing project in the financial services industry.
• The Fourth section allows a look behind the scenes of the BTA, portraying individual network members and listing BTA events and trainings.
