What Gartner recommends
Gartner recommends “to drive business transformation and optimization through technology innovation, EA and technology innovation leaders should “Embrace the disruptive potential a digital twin of an organization (DTO) presents for the enterprise by creating visibility, delivering situational awareness and supporting improved enterprise decisions. A DTO forms a proven design pattern for an enterprise operating model to support the realization of an operationalization strategy.”
Gartner also says, “The Three Domains of DigitalOps” show that organizations combine modelling and monitoring in their DTO to enable ideal execution. This makes what Miele CIO Uwe Herold says all the more exciting…
What is a Gartner Market Guide?
This is how Gartner, the world’s leading research and advisory company, describes its Market Guides reports (external link)2: “You can use a Gartner Market Guide to understand how the status of an emerging market aligns to your future plans. In addition, since Gartner has published over 100 Market Guide research notes, IT and strategic leaders and investors can gain a broad view of many markets, including mature and smaller markets, in an easy-to-read format.”
Gartner adds, “A Market Guide can help with such questions as, “How suitable is it to make a buying decision today for this market?” or “What key capabilities are providers generally able to bring to this market this year?”
Why Market Guide for Technologies Supporting a DTO?
Gartner says: “Coordinating interdependencies within and across digital business transformation initiatives is challenging yet key to success. A digital twin of an organization helps enterprise architecture and technology innovation leaders prioritize, guide, plan, monitor, analyze and scale complex initiatives.”

Bee4IT provides this view. It includes not only the enterprise architecture, but also
its change (strategies, portfolios, projects, etc.),
its operation (services, systems, technologies, etc.) and
its governance (financial management, GRC, KPIs, etc.).
