What's it all about?

At it's most simple, it is about making decisions in the best interest of the entire organisation, as opposed to serving the selfish profit&loss motivation of individual divisions/departments.

By adopting an enterprise approach, organisations:

  • can focus on the business needs of the entire enterprise
  • become aware of multiple systems in different divisions that are providing the same service
  • develop solutions for the whole organisation to benefit
  • save money by reusing solutions across divisions (instead of duplicating per division)
  • reduce support costs by not needing to support different vendor solutions for the same service in different departments
