Architects of IT Transformation

Agile Architecture

Why IT architecture deserves attention

Does your organization face challenges to translate business strategy into real changes? Do you feel information technology is slowing you down instead of helping you to enter new markets and grow existing ones? Do simple business needs lead to multi-year projects before delivering results? Chances are your IT architecture is causing these problems.

Creating a solid yet agile IT architecture requires a deliberate effort. In a modern, Agile organization this cannot be achieved by doing IT architecture the traditional way. An Agile organization requires Agile Architecture which is outcome-based, operates at multiple levels, reaches out and collaborates across the whole organization, showing an open mind, lean thinking, and leadership.


Customer Story Shimano-Medium-Quality

Focus on Strategic Business Values

Learn how Shimano aligned their IT architecture with their strategic business values, paving the way for initiatives like API's or a new cloud platform. 

“I asked Xebia to assist in defining a pragmatic IT architecture avoiding too much complexity.

With the help of their solution architects and an internal team from different disciplines, we created what we now call: Shimano Customer Oriented Architecture (SCOA) supported by a number of guiding principles and governance.

This paved the way for IT to support new projects and initiatives from business and as IT we shifted from reactive to proactive.

As result, we have introduced a new cloud platform and develop our own APIs. All within a period of 2 years, how cool is that.”

-Toine Siemerink, ICT Manager Shimano Europe Group
