to your Business
Businesses are also complex collaborations of people,
technology, and machines performing processes to produce products and
deliver services. The use of business system engineering processes can reduce
risk, reduce cost and reduce
time to deployment of transformed business systems. The
Organizational alignment brought about
by an Business Architecture team using blueprints and specifications leads
also to increased capacity to change.
nDyn's Products Can Help Your Business
Businesses need to build a
culture that is capable of coordinating the efforts of
"subcontractors" to meet the strategic needs set by the
executive team. The nDyn Knowledge Nexus and Business Architect have
been designed to support such cultures. Management of operational
knowledge and development of business "blueprints" and
specifications are core capabilities of nDyn products.
organizations competing for eBusiness transformation work can take
advantage of nDyn’s methods and tools.
The “business system” (or
enterprise) engineering approach can be used as a discriminator when
competing for business transformation engagements.
The primary business benefits to service customers that result from
their service provider using nDyn products and processes include:
Time to Deployment
concurrent enterprise engineering approach integrating the activities of
human resources, and operations with information technology efforts
results in shorter project durations.
The customer’s change program is accelerated enabling them to
deploy eBusiness capabilities sooner, and consequently gaining advantage
over their competition.
Cost of Transformation
concurrent enterprise engineering approach considers people, technology
and operations requirements and design issues in an integrated manner at
the earliest time possible. This
reduces the cost of eliminating requirements and design errors thus
reducing the overall cost of the program.
interfaces between organizations that are typical of serial stovepipe
approach introduce errors. The
concurrent enterprise engineering approach brings the organizations
together from the start. The Knowledge Nexus provides visibility into each
of the components, and the blueprints provided by the Business Architect
also provide cross organization visibility.
The enterprise engineering approach establishes human resource
requirements from the start. The
integrated learning system approach insures that the staff can be rapidly
and economically trained to carry out the new processes using the new
enterprise engineering process, the increased cross organizations
visibility provided by the Knowledge Nexus, and the grass roots
collaboration that goes on during business transformation programs leads
to a greater mutual understanding and alignment between
organizations. Executives can feel confident that the strategies
they endorse will be carried to implementation. Shared development
of shared blueprints and specifications for transformation by the Business
Architecture team insures that the alignment. Because of the
collaborative prociess introduced by the business system engineering
approach to transformation, executives can feel confident that their
organizations are working together to achieve their stated business
Capacity to Change
gained through a eBusiness transformation program can be leveraged on
subsequent change programs. The
body of knowledge can be used as the basis for reasoning about further
changes to operations. The
Enterprise Knowledge Nexus provides the organization with a language for
discussing operational changes with the goal of improving financial
performance. The spread and
use of the vocabulary of the enterprise supported by the Knowledge Nexus
and Business Architect have the effect of increasing the organizations
intelligence (in the domains of business operations and financial
intelligence of an organization describes its ability to change in
response to evolving environmental conditions in order to reach its
objectives and increase its performance. According to
Heritage® Dictionary of the English Language,
intelligence is a combination of the
capacity to acquire and apply knowledge and the faculty of thought
The neXus provides the
capacity to acquire and apply knowledge of how a business operates to
produce bottom line results.
With the body of knowledge
available it is possible to begin to reason. Businesses need to reason
about how they operate in order to develop options for change. The
neXus provides the capabilities to capture and overcome the complexity
of knowledge required to understand business operations. With
comprehensive operational knowledge available members of transformation
teams can examine options for change with confidence.
The neXus extends their
minds with connections from their immediate functional concerns to the
related implications in other components of the business system.
The neXus provides the
ability to acquire knowledge of business operations and the framework
for reasoning about how to change them. It thus provides the ability to
increase the overall intelligence of business organizations.
