Overview

Every decade we see massive changes in the IT industry. In the 80s we saw desktop computing flourish, and progressed to a client server model in the 90s. Mobile computing grew quickly in 2000 and beyond. 2016 presents a variety of technologies that may deliver IT efficiencies on a grand scale. Technologies and trends such as The Device Mesh, Ambient User Experience, 3D Printing Materials, Information of Everything, Advanced Machine Learning, Autonomous Agents and Things, Adaptive Security Architecture, Advanced System Architecture, Mesh App and Service Architecture, Internet of Things Platforms, and others may be game changers. What technologies are right for your organization? What is your decision making process? How can you capitalize on these for your organization?

Enterprise Agile Implementation within the Seven Layers of Agility

Kirti Vaidya, Vice President, Business Architecture and Transformation, Gallagher Bassett

Agile software development processes and frameworks are increasingly gaining popularity. Two key questions that organizations need to consider are: why go agile, and how to do it. This presentation will show why going agile for software development would support business agility, using a seven layer view. It will also leave the audience with a framework for enterprise-wide agile implementation and corresponding organizational change that it would usher in.

Ellerbee

How to Derive and Implement Metrics to Achieve EA Governance Objectives

Jeff Ellerbee, Solutions Marketing Manager, Planview

For the past several years Enterprise Architects have been hearing they should be at the center of their organizations digital transformation efforts. To achieve this they must adopt a business-centric approach towards delivering EA services. But how does the EA organization know it is adding value and making progress towards these goals and objectives? In this presentation, we will outline a maturity framework and a scoring method EA leaders can use to get there.

Enterprise Architecture as a Catalyst of Change

Jeff Fraleigh, Vice President, Marketing, CAST Software

Enterprise Architecture (EA) is the technical framework of an enterprise but it also transcends technology and integrates with the business. Therefore, the discussion and implementation of EA needs to done in an integrated, holistic manner. Because the entire IT ecosystem is drastically changing, EA as a discipline has no other option but to embrace this revolution and anticipate these changes from multiple viewpoints.

  • How to ensure a seamless cloud migration for your large, complex & decentralized App Portfolios
  • Get closer to Product Teams that require insights on more complex architectures
  • Leverage objective metrics to assist in the Agile Practice
