With organizations depending more on the cloud, comprehensive technology architecture planning is becoming the key to an organization’s success, according to a new report from CompTIA, the world’s leading technology association. The market analysis reports suggest that 34 percent of the organizations are building an IT strategy that extends beyond a 12-month window. Yet a majority of these organizations acknowledge the need for improved planning across their entire IT architecture—hardware, development of software, data, and security. Once a top priority for early adopters and cutting-edge enterprises, digital transformation today has moved into the mainstream. As a contradiction, only a few would argue that digital transformation initiatives are vital to the success of an organization.

The enterprise architecture planning practices have often confined to some of the largest organizations due to their resource-intense nature which could be onerous for smaller businesses. However, the general concept that includes aligning business objectives with technical infrastructure remains the one that most organizations can benefit from.

While performing the digital transformation processes, making sure that the right set of individuals has enough intellectual capability to deal with major business decisions is a critical aspect to keep the program on schedule. To balance the scales, digital transformation leads will have to keep track of the knowledge transfer plan execution. Furthermore, they will also have to maintain a plan for switching costs low.
