IDC MeasureScape: KPIs for Strategic Architecture

Authors: Mike Rosen, Suya Xiong


This IDC MeasureScape focuses on how to design a new set of KPIs that can evaluate the effectiveness and influence of strategic architecture within today's DX-centric enterprise. Also, there is an accompanying Excel file that includes a self-assessment tool that enables organizations to:

  • Assess their current state and readiness to leverage architecture KPIs supporting digital transformation
  • Understand architecture KPI success areas and benchmark their scores against the score of their peers and business needs
  • Use the baseline to define short- and long-term goals and identify areas in need of improvement for achieving business and technology transformation objectives

"Successful digital transformation requires architecture, now more than ever. But, success requires new approaches to architecture that integrate with the other business, operations, and organizational changes. KPIs will be critical in affecting all of these changes," says Mike Rosen, research vice president, Strategic Architecture at IDC.
