July 3, 2007
Why Read This Report
With so much industry focus on service-oriented architecture (SOA), many firms are planning for their future SOA platform, but this is only one of multiple platforms emerging within the model of Forrester's Digital Business Architecture. As a top-level conceptual model for planning the future of your technology and architecture, Digital Business Architecture aligns your planning with a new reality: More and more, the design of your business must be directly reflected in the design of your technology. The business goals for each technology domain are the basis for a taxonomy of seven major strategic platforms for digital business: SOA platform, information fabric, interaction platform, Information Workplace, unified communications platform, business service management platform, and business design platform. Along with these are six subplatforms for event management, business process management, business rules, analytics, configuration management, and security. The strategic platforms for digital business provide focal points around which you can structure and design the future of your technology base.
