Iasa conf2016 experimenting with digital architecture - slide share

  1. 1. Experimenting with digital architecture Paddy Baxter Digital Disruption Consultant
  2. 2. digital architecture What is digital architecture? I don’t know … that’s the honest answer … there is no “industry definition”. Best I can do is say that it is fractal and recursive. That seems to be the way nature manages complexity. But seeing as we don’t know we need a way to explore what it might be. That’s where experimentation comes in …
  3. 3. Q. Why experimenting? A. It’s the best approach for this kind of challenge. Tom Graves covers it really well. http://weblog.tetradian.com/ Bottom line - if you want to be a business anarchist you have come to the right place!

  5. 5. My intro – who and what am I? 1. In terms of my career I’ve worked on both sides of the fence – the supply side and the demand side but pretty much always in the change space. I’m never happy with the status quo. Here’s a quick run though of my career … 2. BBC – setup and operated enterprise MS Mail system for 8000 users – then spent 6 months skiing in France! 3. Joined ARI to work in retail systems – Channel Tunnel and Bangkok – focused on system implementation and adoption. 4. Time to specialise – jumped to supply side – Digital Professional Services. 6 great years – e-mail/Exchange world domination with Tony Redmond & co. Ireland, US, Switzerland, Belgium and Australia. Deep into Microsoft world. 5. After returning from Oz I spent some time with SureSkills and then went back to HP to work as an infrastructure architect on a big financial services outsourcing project. 6. I could resist no longer – 6 years with Microsoft as both a consultant and a Technical Account Manager. 7. Supply side blues – needed to move to the middle – EY as an architecture consultant. But too much of a disruptor for Big 4  8. Building a new business now in Digital Architecture … early days but going well. 9. Last but not least – I’m more than a tech architect – for example I’m an ENFJ …. More on that later!

  7. 7. Art Science? IT Architecture “The art or science of designing and delivering valuable technology strategies.” What is Digital Architecture? Let’s start at the start … 1. Are there any good definitions of architecture out there? The IASA definition is pretty good. 1. The “art or science” …. what does this phrase actually mean? You see it in lots of things. Let’s explore.
  8. 8. Holism ReductionismArchitecture? Holism vs. Reductionism Holism: “The whole is greater than the sum of its parts” Architecture[edit] Architecture is often argued by design academics and those practicing in design to be a holistic enterprise.[19] Used in this context, holism tends to imply an all-inclusive design perspective. This trait is considered exclusive to architecture, distinct from other professions involved in design projects. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Holism#cite_note-19 Holm, Ivar (2006).
