Since the whole is much much more important than the parts (Context is King™), it is important to have a cohesive and holistic Framework for all the Tools used to aid Enterprise Transformation, to ensure that the emphasis is to use these different Tools to optimise the whole of the Transformation domain rather than just the parts. To stop Enterprises optimising the parts at the expense of the whole, and to begin to allow Enterprises to optimise the whole at the possible expense of the parts.

POET provides this cohesive and holistic Framework and provides two main benefits:

¨      Firstly, and most importantly, POET provides this framework to Enterprises today - for Enterprises to be able to consider and take a holistic, strategic and joined up view of all the Tools they use for Enterprise Transformation rather than point solutions. POET is the only framework in the world that does this.

¨      Secondly, it provides a framework to Tool Vendors as a basis (a super-type if you will) to allow Tools to begin to change and align themselves with this coherent and holistic environment. This will provide another benefit to Enterprises in the future because it will allow them to see much more clearly how these Tools relate and interface to each other in clear and straight forward ways which allow the holistic adoption of them much more straightforward. Of course this is likely to take a long time because Tool vendors tend to want to argue about their differences rather than agree on areas of similarity and demarcations.

Currently, to try to understand how all these different tools are related is almost impossible. For all the tools you want to use or do use, you need to map each tool to each other tool, to try to understand how they relate.

But as tool vendors begin to use POET as the context for their tools, and map their tools to POET, it will become much much easier for Enterprises and the people who are accountable for how Transformation is effected, to be able to understand how they all relate, enabling them to make more informed decisions about who needs to use what, where, why, how and when.

Questions to ponder...

What do the Tool Vendors you use, do to ensure the Tools they provide can co-exist with others?

How do they integrate their Tool with all the other Tools in the Transformation Domain?
