Enterprise Architecture Enabling Process Governance For Agility, Compliance And More

Enterprise Architecture (EA) provides a comprehensive approach to analyze, design, plan, and implement strategies successfully by creating transparency. In today's business landscape, enterprise-wide agility and compliance have become crucial success factors for most companies. However, agile technologies, such as intelligent automation or robotic process automation (RPA), and compliance and standardization solutions only yield the desired results if managed efficiently. This article focuses on how Enterprise Architecture enables process governance, thereby aiding in achieving enterprise-wide agility and compliance.

To ensure the right level of agility and compliance, processes and supporting applications must be managed effectively. Process governance provides the necessary framework to manage end-to-end business processes driven by value. This value-based approach to agility and compliance is defined in the context of specific processes, operationalized through key performance indicators (KPI), and delivered through EA. EA delivers information about the process in an appropriate structure, with the right quality, and using the best-suited tools to enable process governance for agility and compliance.

The basic version of process management discipline can support agility and compliance, but the combination of EA and process governance can be extended to support other strategic goals continually. Hence, enterprises must use EA and process governance to drive value, ensuring agility, compliance, and the realization of strategic objectives.
