Business Ecology is a business-technology imperative focused on streamlining business processes, removing waste from technology portfolios, and adjusting resource consumption, to optimize business operations and foster business innovation.
An important enabler of Business Ecology is the use of technology beyond automation. Business Ecology practitioners employ technology to identify, measure, model and drive business change.
The Business Ecology Initiative provides education, advocacy and member programs to enable organizations to achieve Business Ecology success, employ Actionable Architecture, and carve a path to business-IT integration.
BEI Practice Area Communities
Critical to Business Ecology success is the exchange of real-world stories, practices, lessons and insights amongst the adopter community. Associated with BEI are Communities of Practice for several Business Ecology enablers, including BPM/SOA, CyberSecurity, Event Processing and Green CIO.
The CoPs are advocacy groups comprised of practitioners, service providers and technology vendors, dedicated to promoting the business value, and enabling the successful adoption, of specific, key business-technology strategies, by the Global 1000, major government agencies and midmarket businesses.
All CoP members belong to BEI and contribute to, and benefit from, the Business Ecology Practice Collection.
