Similarly, it’s important to anticipate possible shifts in stakeholder value that could occur as transformation progresses. The elements and element interactions are employed here as lenses to elaborate the vision and gain insight into which elements will be critical to realizing the vision. In conjunction with formulating the vision, the architecting team will decide on an architecting evaluation method for selecting a preferred future architecture from among a set of alternatives. Enterprise capabilities often play an important role in this evaluation.
Enterprise capabilities can be designed into the architecture to enable the enterprise to respond to anticipated ecosystem shifts, as well as survive significant and unanticipated disruptions. The explicit identification of ecosystem factors is an important task for the architecting team as it seeks to understand its enterprise ecosystem. For a large enterprise, there are many dimensions for each factor. While all are important to the enterprise as a whole, there will be dominant factors the team will need to monitor and consider in a transformation effort.
