In order to swiftly and effectively transform their organization to a cloud-based model, SunTrust implemented what they call a ‘Business Accelerator stack’ to help them move faster and serve their clients better.
Our Business Accelerator stack is made up of five layers: cloud, modular architecture, DevOps, agile development, and design thinking. Each plays a critical role in allowing us to better serve our clients and to move faster.
…Design thinking is really at the core of our Business Accelerator. It enables us to look at problems from a client-end viewpoint and come up with the right solutions from the start.
…As a full stack, the Business Accelerator is helping SunTrust keep pace with technology, become more agile, and better anticipate client needs. Along the way, it’s also helped us to identify critical talent and culture issues standing in the way of our success. I’d encourage other CIOs to consider incorporating all or as many of these components as they can into their IT strategies moving forward.
SunTrust describes its Business Accelerator as combining five layers: cloud, modular architecture, DevOps, agile development, and design thinking. Successful businesses of the future will similarly have to consider a holistic approach to prepare their organizations for a more agile future.
