Five Steps to Designing a Fully Optimized Enterprise Architecture

The enterprise architect must, despite all the technical complexities and challenges, remain outcome focused; rarely are stakeholders interested in the science behind the processes, but rather they are happy to trust their experts. It is simply the results that matter. This requires measurable deliverables and milestones that tangibly demonstrate our progress in an easily digestible format. Working in iterations architects can develop and target a set of goals, tied to key business outcomes.

By making use of a maturity model, you drill deeper into each iterative step, understanding what it looks like and how to move towards fully optimized enterprise architecture. The Orbus Software Enterprise Architecture Maturity Assessment demonstrates where your organization currently sits, and provides a platform for you to benchmark against competitors, and industry standards. You are able to use the assessment as a way to develop your EA practice to meet the demands of the digital age.

Financial Services: Rapid Adaptation to the Unforeseen Requires Enterprise Architecture

At this point, it almost goes without saying that the global pandemic completely upended the idea that companies could be prepared for anything. No amount of 5 year plans or cautious growth can help when your whole business is forced to close or all your workers stay at home. Organizations that survived and even thrived were those that were able to adapt their business models along with the supporting technology. The only preparation that proved valuable was being prepared to move quickly.

Adaptability is an easy gospel to preach for nimble startups and agile tech firms, but for banks and financial services companies you might as well start speaking Hungarian. Even if institutions can get a grip on the blockchain or can define DeFi, there are still huge regulatory barriers to everything a company tries to do.

This eBook will look at 4 major challenges facing financial services firms in the near future, and the potential solutions that can be delivered.

Accelerating Patient Payments

Patient A/R is an ever-increasing focus for many practices. Deductibles alone have changed the game as they've ballooned over 200% in the last decade. You can't guarantee payment, but you can improve your patient financial experience and (in turn) collect more, faster. We'll discuss the following strategies to accelerate your cash:

  • Introducing the financial component earlier in the revenue cycle.
  • Communicating with patients through modern platforms.
  • And digitizing payment channels.

By increasing patient financial transparency you'll not only accelerate payments and collect more, you'll also improve the patient experience. This will lead to a happier patient base, a broader referral network, lower A/R, fewer balances going to collections, and a highly efficient team focused on outstanding balances.

LogMeIn Case Study

LogMeIn was looking for a new partner to help them seamlessly handle a consistently growing invoice count and integrate with NetSuite. Their current partner had a static solution with no new releases or updates, and the team at LogMeIn wasn’t even sure whom to contact when they had questions or needed support.

The added challenge that Covid-19 brought was the shift many businesses had to make to handling all invoicing electronically. From 2019 to 2020, LogMeIn experienced a 26% increase in the number of invoices they are handling monthly.

The LogMeIn team decided to partner with YayPay by Quadient to manage their credit-to-cash process based on several factors:

YayPay has a commitment to continuous improvement, so there have been frequent updates and releases to add value to the product on a regular basis.

YayPay has a seamless integration with NetSuite, creating a more powerful solution for managing AR.

The YayPay product team was open about sharing the product roadmap and receiving ideas and feedback from LogMeIn about how their needs could be better met.

The user interface and customer portal were far friendlier and easier to use than the Salesforce.com interface they had been working with prior.
