New Gartner’s Magic Quadrant report for Enterprise Architecture Tools (Oct 2019)


Gartner has published an updated Magic Quadrant report for Enterprise Architecture, and they have updated its market definition and functionality for enterprise architecture (EA) tools for 2019.

Enterprise Architecture Definition:

 "EA is a discipline that proactively and holistically leads enterprise responses to disruptive forces. It does this by identifying and analyzing the execution of change toward the desired business vision and outcomes. Mainstream viewpoints of EA include:
-  Business architecture, which guides people, process and organizational change
-  Information architecture, which focuses on the consistent sharing of information across the enterprise
-  Security architecture, which is focused on relating business problems, threats and agile IT to the defenses the organization needs to build
-  Solution architecture, which develops a direction for managing the portfolios of to-be solutions
- Technical architecture, which focuses on evolving the technical infrastructure"  (Gartner, 2019)




About the Magic Quadrant

The Magic Quadrant are focused on the  diverse market of EA tool vendors, and Gartner studies 15 evaluation criteria, one of them is related to product or service functions, but the other 14 evaluation criteria are focused on  the vendors’ ability to meet the requirements of this market, so Gartner advises that the best EA tool vendor for their organizations might be outside the Leaders quadrant.

What are The Next Big Trend in Software Development on Business Process?

The expert panel of Forbes Technology Council has published  "13 Tech Experts Predict The Next Big Trend In Software Development", and there is 2 experts that talk about business processes:

 AI-Powered Business Processes 

"The growth of AI-powered business processes will grow exponentially in the next few years. There is a large opportunity for companies to retool routine business and technical processes using AI technology. This can lead to greater efficiency and accuracy, thereby improving the bottom line." - Linda Apsley, capitalone.com 

 Low- And No-Code Tools 

"According to McKinsey, digital transformation success is two times more likely when employees are empowered by self-serve technology. Here’s where low-code/no-code tools shine, as they allow for building custom business processes and apps with minimum IT resources in a blink of an eye. They empower less tech-savvy employees to build and deliver solutions they need for efficient work. " Katherine Kostereva, Bpm’online

OPENCLASS 24 Octubre: ¿Digitalizar, Orquestar o Automatizar Procesos?

 
https://forms.gle/aZGn6PbPmNr9RBdA9

El 24 de octubre impartiré la OpenClass "¿Digitalizar, Orquestar o Automatizar Procesos?" a las 19 horas (GMT+2) desde mi aula de formación del Máster Universitario en Business Process Management para la Transformación Digital de UNIR.
 
En la actual revolución digital, las empresas deben plantearse transformaciones digitales que les permitan sobrevivir y para ello buscarán innovación en nuevos modelos de negocio, nuevos productos y nuevos servicios, lo que implicará racionalizar, simplificar, mejorar o crear procesos de negocio que respondan a las nuevas necesidades. Todo el mundo habla de Automatización de Procesos, pero tenemos que preguntarnos qué es lo que deseamos hacer: ¿Digitalizar procesos? ¿Orquestar Procesos? ¿Automatizar Procesos? o ¿Digitalizar, Orquestar y Automatizar Procesos?
Resolveré estas preguntas en la OpenClass de UNIR de acceso gratuito.

Informe "The Intelligent Automation Global Market Report 2019 H1" de SSON


El informe "The IA Global Market Report 2019 H1" es el 5to. de una serie de informes sobre Automatización Inteligente que SSON publica dos veces al año. Cada año, sus Informes de Mercado Globales sobre Automatización Inteligente (IA) se centran en un aspecto clave de la adopción e implementación de IA. 2017 fue el año del "qué y cómo" de IA, y tanto los informes H1 como H2 elaboraron la definición y respuesta de ese desafío. En 2018, consideraron lo que se requiere para escalar con éxito la automatización en toda la empresa, definieron más de una docena de puntos de atención y ofrecieron  consejos sobre cómo sortearlos. El informe H1 fue para aquellos que se embarcan en el viaje de automatización; H2 para aquellos que ya llevan unos años. En 2019, se trata de apoyar la transformación a través de una gestión eficaz del cambio. La falta de un soporte efectivo para la gestión de cambios, según su encuesta de 2019, es el principal caso de "fracaso" de automatización. SSON indica que un plan de gestión de cambios bien pensado y adherido debe ser un elemento crítico en la estrategia de automatización. La gestión eficaz del cambio impulsa el éxito. Por el contrario, cualquier brecha en la gestión del cambio hará que el programa se estanque.

En el informe se destacan datos como:

Más del 70% de los expertos en automatización e inteligencia artificial citan que la automatización inteligente es la máxima prioridad de inversión para ellos. Y el 92% ha mencionado que gestionar el cambio y la cultura es su principal desafío para lograr la implementación exitosa de la automatización inteligente.  

SSON comenta que con la Transformación Digital,  no está lejos el día cuando la automatización se convertirá en una forma de vida para las empresas futuras.

El informe Global Intelligent Automation H1 describe las consideraciones críticas que los líderes deben tener en cuenta al introducir la automatización inteligente en su organización. Este informe es para aquellos que se embarcan en el viaje de la automatización de procesos mediante robots de software (RPA - Robotic Process Automation), que buscan apoyar su transformación a través de una gestión eficaz del cambio.

Descarga el informe ahora para crear una estrategia sólida de automatización inteligente respaldada por un programa eficaz de gestión de cambios.

MEGA International Launches HOPEX Integrated Risk Management Solution

MEGA International has announced the launch of its HOPEX Integrated Risk Management solution offering a comprehensive platform enabling organizations to implement an efficient and effective risk-aware culture through an integrated approach by gathering IT assets, business processes, and risk data into a single repository for a complete view of existing risks.

MEGA’s Integrated Risk Management solution provides an integrated view of risks, controls, incidents, compliance, and audit with business operations, so that risk is treated as a whole and not in silos.

“In today’s digital era, a siloed approach to managing risks, without a comprehensive view of risks, business, and IT assets, is no longer effective,” remarked Lucio de Risi, CEO of MEGA. “With continuous business and regulatory changes, companies are challenged with needing to quickly and comprehensively assess the impact on risks and operations due to these changes.”

Thanks to HOPEX’s single platform that encompasses risks, processes, and IT assets, risk and compliance management is centralized, enabling companies to move from a check-the-box compliance approach to a risk-aware culture.

HOPEX Integrated Risk Management enables the alignment of risk types with business processes, IT systems, and centralized control systems. As a result, organizations can manage their risk more efficiently, economically, and holistically by managing all dimensions of governance, risk, and compliance from strategy and business modeling to IT systems analysis and data modeling.

“Our risk management solution has the ability to provide organizations with more detailed and reliable information about a company’s risk exposure,” noted Ludovic Relandeau, Senior Vice President and Global Head of Products for MEGA“These improved estimations of potential risks will help business leaders and executives make better informed business decisions about corporate priorities to help reduce the company’s exposure to risk and possible liabilities.”

MEGA’s HOPEX Integrated Risk Management solution includes:
  • An integrated view of risks, controls, incidents, compliance, and audit so that risk is treated as a whole, rather than in silos.
  • Ability to efficiently identify risks in a structured risk library and assess them based on their impact and likelihood. For faster increased productivity, risk assessments are performed through automated assessment campaigns.
  • An aggregated view of risks, controls, incidents, compliance, and audit with business operations, including IT assets and business processes. This provides a clear picture of how these items are tied to business and IT portfolios and the impact on each due to regulatory changes or new business needs.
  • Embedded features to increase the efficiency of risk management efforts including: assessment templates to quickly assess risks and controls; integrated information on risks, controls, incidents, and regulatory requirements; a personalized to-do list to manage daily activities in an efficient manner; multiple widgets to build custom dashboards and monitor key indicators; and action plans, collaborative workflows, and social features to enhance risk mitigation efforts.

Through a single shared collaborative platform, HOPEX Integrated Risk Management creates a synergistic environment to support all stakeholders involved in managing risk. With a completely redesigned user experience, the solution offers a smooth and seamless design that’s simple to navigate.

NEW BOOK: The hugely popular book Real-Life BPMN by Camunda has been updated


The co-founders of Camunda, an open source software company reinventing workflow automation, today released an updated, fourth English edition of Real-Life BPMN at the preeminent annual user conference CamundaCon. The hugely popular handbook enables developers, architects, business analysts and business process owners to learn about and implement the global Business Process Model and Notation standard.


Real-Life BPMN, written by Camunda Co-Founders Bernd Rücker and Jakob Freund, is based on the ISO BPMN 2.0 standard that they helped create. Published in English, German and Spanish, it has sold more than 35,000 copies worldwide to date. 



The fourth edition was sparked by the rising popularity of microservice architectures – slicing functionality into smaller pieces which can be developed and maintained autonomously. A 2018 Camunda Survey revealed 63% of companies had already adopted microservice architectures and the updated handbook addresses how splitting business logic into microservices affects business processes and BPMN models.  



Co-Author of the book, Bernd Rücker, Co-Founder and Chief Technologist, Camunda, says: “I think our book has been so popular because it equips anyone who’s interested in using BPMN with easy-to-follow guidance and best practices, especially in the context of workflow automation endeavours. In fact, in this latest edition, we’ve introduced guidelines to avoid creating BPMN monoliths that conflict with microservices architectures. This is particularly important as companies are modernizing their IT architectures, moving to the cloud and striving to respond to the ever increasing business demand for more software applications.” 



Real-Life BPMN – available now – has been praised for making the complex topic of workflow modelling accessible, with its clear structure, easy-to-follow examples and a genuine sense of humour often lost in technical publications. 


To learn more, join Jakob Freund and Bernd Rücker in a webinar on October 16th, where they’ll explain the latest Real-Life BPMN updates and best practices.

NEWS: Software AG to Become Member of Open Industry 4.0 Alliance Linking OT and IT

The topics of platform economy and digitalization began making an impact on industry some years ago as part of the overall concept of Industry 4.0. But successful scaling and implementation of new business models have been hampered thus far by the heterogeneity of industrial components and systems. The Open Industry 4.0 Alliance was started in an effort to accelerate the creation of value on the journey to digitalization. The objective of this new alliance is to establish an open ecosystem and framework for interoperability between vendors. It enables IT and OT vendors to engage in open dialog and generate common customer value. Software AG will position itself in the segments of IoT Connectivity, Open Edge Computing and as a Hybrid Integration Operator.
The positive effects of the digital transformation on production and logistics processes across companies and the establishment of the first digital business models have already been successfully tried and tested in the process industry and in discrete manufacturing. But the variety of different protocols, standards and frameworks is a hindrance to platform-based scaling and monetization approaches.
In response to these experiences, well-known and powerful IT and OT organizations such as ifm electronicBeckhoff,SAPKUKAHilscherEndress+Hauser and Multivac have partnered to drive cross-vendor standardization of digitalization projects in production and logistics. Their proviso is “One and Open.”
More than 21 manufacturing and software companies now belong to the Open Industry 4.0 Alliance. Together, they are developing open, compatible and standardized solutions for industrial customers. 
According to Bernd Gross, Software AG’s Chief Technology Officer,The members of the alliance have agreed on an open and pragmatic approach to ensure interoperability for industrial automation (Industry 4.0). This approach puts customer value front and center. The interplay between IT and OT requires multi-vendor interoperability. That is the only way factories in the manufacturing and process industries can reap the benefits of Industry 4.0. The open standards-based approach is the perfect fit for our philosophy, Freedom as a Service.”
Dr. Stefan Sigg, Software AG’s Chief Product Officer, added, “Distributed environment interoperability and connectivity are essential to an open Industry 4.0 environment. We look forward to contributing our expertise and experience in these fields to the alliance’ discussions and projects.”

Gartner published the Magic Quadrant for Robotic Process Automation (RPA) Software

The analyst Gartner Inc. has published its Magic Quadrant for RPA software in July 2019. According to Gartner, "RPA is still relatively small market with a total revenue of slightly less than $850 million in 2018. However, RPA is the fastest-growing software subsegment officially tracked by Gartner, with year-on-year growth of over 63% in 2018". Gartner defines RPA as "Robotic process automation (RPA) is a digital enablement technology that predominantly leverages a combination of user interface (UI) and surface-level features to create scripts that automate routine, predictable data transcription work". 

This Magic Quadrant focuses on the providers of RPA products and not service providers that leverage RPA capabilities licensed from another vendor. This research informs them of the main RPA tool vendors in an evolving marketplace driven by the dynamics of digital business, that it includes the following vendors: UiPath, Blue Prism, Automation Anywhere, Workfusion, Pegasystems, Another Monday, EdgeVerve Systems, NICE, Kofax, Servicetrace, Softomotive, Kryon, AutomationEdge, HelpSystems, Jacada, NTT, Antworks and Datamatics.

The main use cases for RPA solutions are based on integration of data. 

Gartner has evaluated all vendors individually and did not rank or score them against each other.
