Applying Wardley Mapping and DevOps Techniques to the ERP Ecosystem

EBook Available Now On:

A group of industry experts tackled this challenge as part of the 2020 DevOps Enterprise Forum. This team was primarily trying to offer guidance to enterprises about how they may think about the impact that digital transformation (DevOps, Lean, etc.) is placing on incumbent business systems (such as ERPs and middleware) within their integrated landscapes.

This team applied Wardley mapping to increase their situational awareness and demonstrate this approach as a tool to explore ideas, identify key themes, and hopefully communicate with senior enterprise leaders. As an example, the team looked at custom business processes (some should be standardized, others may need to be removed from the ERP), integrations, and automating business-process testing.
