How To Translate Abstract Strategy Into Concrete, Measurable Business Actions

How To Translate Abstract Strategy Into Concrete, Measurable Business Actions As I discussed in the “Strategy and Enterprise Architecture” series , business capabilities are the link connecting strategy and business model to enterprise architecture and the underlying technology that executes the strategy. Understanding this link enables companies to align resources, people, and processes to transform themselves in response to market dynamics, maintaining a competitive edge. The game plan for strategy execution Another important dimension, which drills through one specific capability, is integrated business planning. This capability translates the strategy down to operations through the enterprise architecture. For many decades, business planning focused almost entirely on financial and budgeting activities. Meanwhile, operations developed its own short-, mid-, and long-term planning processes, sometimes including its own separate financial projections after the fact. As a result, different functions of the organization make decisions on individual conflicting plans, disconnected from the corporate strategic priorities and...

Data Assurance (DA) : Bulk data copy (Oracle to HANA)

At the end of  my last blog I mentioned a new Data Assurance (DA) feature that allows you to materialize (aka bulk data copy) a table without the overhead of first sorting and comparing the source data.  I’ve been putting off writing this blog because, while the new feature has been working great on my current project, the feature wasn’t available to the general public until recently (DA 16 SP04 PL06). REMINDER: While DA can run on its own, SAP has continued Sybase’s method of distributing DA as a subsystem within the (Sybase)SAP Replication Server (SRS) product.  In other words, you have to download SRS to get at the DA distribution software, which means you need to download SRS 16.0 SP04 PL06 (or better) to get access to this new feature. Background   In an earlier blog I mentioned working on a project where the client needed to migrate 180+ TB...
