IDC MaturityScape: Strategic Architecture 2.0

This IDC study identifies the key components of successful strategic architecture in terms of five dimensions: vision, ecosystem, process, deliverables, and people, detailing each with four sub-dimensions. Together, these fully describe the components and approach necessary to turn architecture into a powerful management tool that enables competitive differentiation at speed. This insight into strategic architecture provides guidance to CIOs, IT directors, business leaders, and CEOs on where they stand with strategic architecture, the business outcomes associated with more mature practices, and what they need to do to achieve them."Architecture is a critical ingredient of successful, scalable, and sustainable digital transformation," says Mike Rosen, research vice president with IDC's IT Executive Program. "But a new world requires new architecture. Organizations that embrace a new strategic architecture approach will be a step ahead in achieving competitive differentiation at speed."
