Posted by Ton Baas on 26 May 2015

Tags: Enterprise Architecture Management

Bring your own device, bring your own technology, bring your own phone or IT consumerisation (respectively BYOD, BYOT, BYOP). Whatever you want to call it, anno 2015 everybody knows the concept of bringing your privately owned device to access company information and applications. This was thrown in high gear with the proliferation of smartphones and tablets, making it impossible to imagine a working world without the concept. However people stand divided regarding the effects of BYOD. In this blog we discuss the good, the bad & the ugly regarding BYOD – leading to the conclusion that it is all about a good BYOD strategy, policy and plan how things work out for your organization.  As we always like to finish on a positive note we’ll start with the bad and the ugly and finish with the good.

The Art of Scoping: 5 lessons to be learned

Posted by Ton Baas en David van Eck on 24 April 2015

Tags: Business Process Management

Everybody scopes in their daily life at school or work. Mostly this is done without any second thought. Whom is responsible for getting groceries and making dinner? Considering holidays where do I go, with whom and how many days? All these questions are quite familiar to all of us. However, not only in daily life these types of questions are asked.

The same goes for scoping within the area of Business Process Management. When do I start modelling a process, or how do we scope that kind of complexity? It is very difficult to decide where your process starts and finishes or who (roles or systems) and what (data) is involved in the process.

Ready for action? Not yet!
