Intelligent Sustainable Enterprise Capability Model and Enterprise DevOps
As generative AI recently took the world by storm, there is lot of discussion on how we can create private large language models for enterprise use to meet regulatory, compliance and legal requirements. According to Gartner reports, Generative AI has already been used to design drugs for various uses within months, offering pharma significant opportunities to reduce both the costs and timeline of drug discovery. A truly intelligent and sustainable enterprise is composable and is based on 3 principles and new value chain framework:
The three building blocks of composable business are:
- Composable thinking, which keeps you from losing your creativity. Anything is composable. When you combine the principles of modularity, autonomy, orchestration and discovery with composable thinking, it should guide your approach to conceptualizing what to compose, and when.
- Composable business architecture ensures that your organization is built to be flexible and resilient. It’s about structure and purpose. These are structural capabilities — giving you mechanisms to use in architecting your business.
- Composable technologies are the tools for today and tomorrow. They are the pieces and parts, and what connects them all together. The four principles are product design goals driving the features of technology that support the notions of composability.
As there is a need for looking into value chain from triple bottom line and sustainability angle , Gartner thinks our outdated business value chains needs refreshing to create a multi-factor value chain.
Multifactor enterprise value takes continuous account of a range of material variables and value levers, enabling you to balance the value you deliver to stakeholders with the value you realize in return. This approach provides the visibility decision makers need to create opportunity, sense and respond to the critical demands of stakeholders and iterate against multiple factors as conditions change.
To employ a multifactor approach to enterprise value, you first have to listen to stakeholders so you can identify — despite the breadth, urgency, pace and volume of issues and concerns — what is material to them and you. You also need to monitor for fast-moving, high-impact disruptions.
This may require new listening mechanisms, as many organizations lack transparency on those critical elements of nonfinancial performance that are indirect but leading indicators of long-term value. You also need to measure where efforts to create value will not actually realize the intended value. This is where Intelligent Sustainable Enterprise and Enterprise DevOps will help to accelerate the new value chain.
Intelligent Sustainable Enterprise Capability Model
The fun part of this is to execute this abstract principle in large and complex transformation programmes ex : SAP. In addition to the solution complexity, the idea of composable Devops makes a lot of legacy SAP consultants and SAP CoE consultants nervous to an extent that they think it is impossible to move to real DevOps model in future especially in a SAP landscape as redesigning ERP processes can be very risky, costly and complex. The fit to standard and clean core for SAP and NON-SAP COTS products principles makes it a bit simpler [unless there is business value] but data and integration becomes the nightmare if the innovation at edge apps are not designed carefully.
While there is lot of theory on moving to Intelligent Sustainable Enterprises, I don’t think we have capability map on what an intelligent sustainable enterprise should look like and hence I want to share the rough sketches of Intelligent Sustainable Enterprise for Pharmaceutical Industry with my beloved SAP community members to exchange more ideas and perspectives on how we can turn this great future into reality in SAP transformation projects.
Do we now think, the above capability model will help us to deliver below user stories for a pharmaceutical industry in an SAP transformation project:)?
