Using an industry-specific reference architecture is central to organizational priorities and has many benefits. It’s critical to understanding, modeling, and communicating the operating environment and the organization's direction, but more significantly, to enabling measurable top-line organizational outcomes and unlocking direct value.
Use this reference architecture to:
- Demonstrate the value of IT’s role in supporting your enterprise capabilities while highlighting the importance of proper alignment between organizational and IT strategies.
- Apply reference architecture techniques such as strategy maps, value streams, and capability maps to design usable and accurate blueprints of your wholesale operations.
- Assess your initiatives and priorities to determine if you are investing in the right capabilities. Conduct capability assessments to identify opportunities and prioritize projects.
