Move beyond digitalization of the enterprise to graphitization of the enterprise. Here’s a great diagram that explains this concept. (click on it to enlarge it)
Graphitization of not only all of your corporate information assets across all of your constituencies and stakeholders – at the data, application entity, and business object level – but also the graphitization of all of the interconnections between every business process, application system, infrastructure component, cloud service, vendor/service provider, and business role that uses, manages, or stores corporate information (Crossing the EA Chasm: Automating Enterprise Architecture Modeling #2).
Use graphitization to make your existing corporate information more available, more usable, and more informative. Graphitization enables you to “Keep Calm and Have IT Your Way“.
What is Graphitization?
Graphitization is a data science approach for collecting, organizing, analyzing, and visualizing any domain of endeavor by using graphs – networks of connected nodes and relationships with each node and relationship annotated with additional descriptive information (metadata).
Use graphitization of your organization to help close both the Enterprise Architecture Chasm and the Operational Data Chasm. See below.
