Architectural Data will Guide the 2020s

Dr Tim O’Neill, Founder and Principal at Avolution and Research Fellow at UTS

What technical and financial analytics should CIOs and decision makers expect from Enterprise Architects in 2022?

Enterprises are in the middle of an application explosion and a transformation acceleration.
Looking just at the application landscape: industry surveys tell us that the average enterprise is using 1,295 cloud services , and also runs around 500 custom applications . The worldwide enterprise applications market reached $241 billion last year, growing 4.1% year-over-year in 2020, according to IDC .

The underpinning architectures of enterprises– made up of interactions between people, processes and technology, and often also physical assets (IoT) – are also growing and changing at pace.

Enterprise Architects keep CIOs and business units informed using IT cost calculations and technical and lifecycle metrics.

They will often present costs and technical metrics for the current IT landscape, plus forecasts to inform planning for new business scenarios and digital transformation projects.

Highlights of 2021, Peek into 2022

By Steve Nunn, President and CEO, The Open Group

Happy New Year! I hope that, wherever you are reading this, 2022 has started well for you and yours. It is clearly a time of continued concern and caution due to the on-going global pandemic, and yet it also feels like a moment of hope and optimism that we might finally begin to regain some kind of normality in our lives. It seems COVID-19 will be with us for some time to come, but I’d like to think that the coming year will be one with far less devastation on a human, social, and economic level. What I can say with certainty is that 2022 will be a busy and significant year for The Open Group.
