System Engineering is the ability to establish several questions in system development, for efficient delivery of business system operations. Automation of business processes has been found common today with resolution of common issues of enterprise agility with the use of AI/ML. Robotic process automation (RPA) was reviewed as capable to handle high-volume, repeatable tasks required by humans to perform. Several tasks of business queries, calculations, maintenance of records, process and business transactions continues to experience changes in IS/IT environment. In today’s digital world, organisations are under pressure, to utilize systems to ensure continuous adaptability of business processes for agility. This paper provided insights to systemic approach of IS/IT, by exploring optimum systems configuration of performances and hybridization of Information Systems Technology for enterprise agility. Enterprise for business organisation respond to changing environment and with the aim of business adaptation to various changes are caused by the emergent of IS/IT systems. Social media adoption are amongst the tools identified for business agility and for IS/IT systems capabilities. This paper explores the process and reviews emergent of IS/IT systems integration as potential impact for enterprise agility.
