An integrated EA (business and technical) can provide the necessary support for a business transformation that makes the business ready for the variety of business and technological challenges it will face.

As Enterprise Architecture (EA) practices balance the mature domain of traditional IT governance, while embracing the dynamically changing worlds and ecosystems of digital innovation – new skills, missions, and methods – will further enable enterprise objectives of capturing emerging and driving mature markets growth. Today’s session showcases an adaptable framework construct for guiding innovation by EA teams and Partner organizations!

 


11:30am-12:30pm: Become Indispensable: Strengthen Your Enterprise Architecture Practice by Producing Valuable Business Outcomes

 

Organizations have spent the past years focusing on efficiency, which meant when hit with a major disruption like COVID-19, many business processes were too brittle to quickly adapt and simply broke. During the rebuilding process, Gartner indicates that leaders must design an architecture that: enables better access to information; can augment that information with new insights; and is composable, modular, and can change and respond more quickly as decisions are made. But how do you do that? A good first step is to add a business architecture top layer to your enterprise architecture efforts. Using this lens, you can connect IT to business objectives (ensuring your efforts are business-outcome-driven) and therefore easily changeable when business objectives evolve or change.

 

In this session you will learn how to:

  • Create a strategic roadmap where you can plan future business capabilities and other IT investments
  • Understand how emerging technology can be leveraged to support business objectives
  • Optimize your current IT portfolio for cost, lifecycle, and agility
  • Ensure transformation projects are aligned with strategic objectives
  • Implement business-outcome-driven enterprise architecture

There are 3 keys aspects to transformation – culture, business model and technology.

How do you get there?

 

A few highlights of the content that will be covered:

  • Business and Technology trends driving the need for modernization
  • How to develop a clear vision, define a strategy and create roadmaps for execution
