The utilization of suitable building blocks for digital transformation is a critical factor of success in the competitive field. The Cross-Business-Architecture Lab is a user association with member companies from all business and industrial sectors. These companies jointly develop, refine, simulate, and implement best practices that benefit the entire association.
Digital convergence of technical departments, production units, products, and office IT systems.
The digital transformation is turning IT into business and business into IT. Innovative enterprise architectures are now being developed by CIOs in cooperation with CDOs and technical departments that are viewed as being on an equal footing in this regard. We at CBA Lab know which types of building blocks are needed here.
Innovations developed by application users for other application users
The Cross-Business-Architecture Lab is a user association. Best practices that have been tried and tested in the field are shared and further refined into leading-edge results that are reliable and ready for immediate use.
The Cross-Business-Architecture Lab has its roots in IT and enterprise architecture, not least because of its ten years of operation under the name SOA Innovation Lab e.V. CBA Lab member companies firmly believe that powerful (enterprise) architecture is a fundamental factor of success for digital transformation.
Knowledge increases when it is shared: The members of the Cross-Business-Architecture Lab know this to be the case from their own experience. New, innovative topics; changed conditions – the Cross-Business-Architecture Lab and its members are moving forward quickly and dynamically together. Key topics in 2017 include “Blockchains” and “Cross-Cloud Communication.”
Speed, flexibility, agility – none of these can be achieved in monolithic hard-wired environments. The Cross-Business-Architecture Lab stands for modular building blocks and components, flexible architectures, and interoperability across various structures and boundaries: Together these form the foundation for the digital transformation.
Our network connects people across all companies and business sectors.
The Cross-Business-Architecture Lab provides an active cross-business / cross-sector network for the DACH region. Our association offers companies and their employees and experts a secure environment of trust in which they can openly exchange ideas and experiences with their peers. “Wait a second, let me just call someone at Bosch, Daimler, or Telekom” – what enterprise architect wouldn’t love to be able to get that kind of assistance after encountering a problem?
The utilization of modular building blocks for digital transformation is a critical factor of success in the competitive field. The Cross-Business-Architecture Lab works with and for its members companies to develop innovative “building blocks”that shape the nature of enterprise architectures, and serve as a basis for their organization: Standard software, governance, EAM, the cloud, mobility, industrial analytics, microservices, APIs, and blockchains – these are the building blocks of digital transformation.
