What you can expect from this paper...

If you were asked to draw a picture of an enterprise before its transformation and a picture after its transformation, like in the classic before/after house renovation advertising, what would it look like?

Enterprise Transformation

As an enterprise architect looking for a way to represent an enterprise, we can interrogate TOGAF. It tells us that an enterprise is a system of systems, and that Enterprise Architecture is about managing enterprise transformation toward a target operating model; unfortunately TOGAF does not tell us how to draw a system of systems.

This paper discusses:

  • How to illustrate enterprise transformation 
  • What is an enterprise?
  • The need for transformation
  • Enterprise as a system of systems
