On Monday, September 19, 2016, Cutter Consortium released the August/September double-issue of Cutter IT Journal, focused on business-driven digital transformation. S2E Principal, Whynde Kuehn, was honored to serve as Guest Editor for the issue, collaborating with top leaders in the field, to bring a new perspective on how to approach defining, designing, planning, executing, and measuring digital transformation from a truly top-down and business-driven perspective. Various articles in the issue highlight the key role of business/enterprise architecture as the key link to bridge strategy and execution, and accelerate continuous transformation and innovation.
Kuehn provides an overview of the approach and sets the tone for the journal in her introduction. Kuehn states, “Digital transformation starts with big visions and strategies, but the organizations that can execute upon them in a coordinated way, with agility, will win. The ability to move strategy into action, and constantly innovate and adapt to change, has now become a competitive advantage in itself.”
An unabridged, complimentary copy of the Cutter Business Technology Journal may be accessed from the Cutter site.
Kuehn will also be presenting at the 2016 Cutter Summit on Unlocking Digital Transformation, to be held on November 14-15, 2016 in Cambridge, Massachusetts. She will lead a deep-dive workshop entitled Building a Transformational Business Architecture Practice on Tuesday, November 15th from 9 – 11:30 AM ET.
