Deloitte’s “Linking Architecture” solution received the 2011 Partner Innovation Award, from leading BPM vendor Software AG, which sets the stage for an innovative and promising market offering for business IT alignment and enterprise architecture in general.
The “Linking Architecture” solution allows the CIO to align much closer with the business as it puts business drivers, processes and the enabling IT into context and forms the basis for a holistic CIO dashboard. The Deloitte concept allows clients to structure and instantiate business, process, systems and people dimensions into a governable and commonly accepted operating model, supporting business transformation through improved transparency, a collaborative approach and more controlled execution.
By clarifying the connection between the different components of the operating model, "Linking Architecture" can perform a more accurate impact analysis for IT but also for the business. This is very important for the operational evolution and transformation of a business when objectives, such as improving business agility, cost reduction or risk management and compliance move into focus.“Linking Architecture”, a Deloitte solution powered by Software AG's ARIS platform, makes best use of ARIS to model, publish and control a company's operating model while simultaneously aligning with the latest Deloitte Industry Print developments as a standard toolset for business and process modeling.
