Editorial Review: Enterprise Digitization Patterns

About the Book

Digitization and AI are at the center of every board room conversation these days.  Most CEOs, senior management and boards are less worried about their traditional competitors.  The impact of disruption through digitization is real and quantifiable – 52% of Fortune 500 companies have been replaced since 2000. The task of enabling new digital business models gets exponentially harder as the complexity of systems are greater. Most CIOs, CTOs are struggling with when to start, what to do, and how to meet the expectations of their CEOs and Boards.  Design patterns help narrow this gap by documenting a well-working solution to a problem that occurs repeatedly in a given context. Our book “Enterprise Digitization Patterns” breaks down digital disruption enablers and delivers a cookbook across three key pillars – Digital Experience, Enterprise IoT and Autonomous Systems. The book provides reference architectures, design patterns, maturity models and practical case studies to drive new forms of customer value, business outcomes and business models. The design patterns are distinct or relevant to modern-day enterprise digital platforms that enables enterprise digital business models.
