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. 2017 presents a variety of technologies that may deliver IT efficiencies on a grand scale. Technologies and trends such as AI and Advanced Machine Learning, Intelligent Apps, Intelligent Things, Virtual and Augmented Reality, Digital Twin, Blockchain and Distributed Ledgers, Conversational System, Mesh App and Service Architecture, Digital Technology Platforms, Adaptive Security Architecture., and others may be game changers. How will you capitalize on these technologies, but more importantly how will your Enterprise Architecture embrace the digital world to support all the changes?

10:30am-11:30am: How to Leverage Your Architecture for Digital Transformation

 

Praveen Moturu, Chief Enterprise Architect, Mars, Inc. 

 

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. 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. For example, technologies such Big Data, mobile and cloud computing are all highly disruptive technologies that require a fine balance between their business and technical aspects as the organization moves forward.

 

In this session, attendees will learn how to they need to reinvent and/or refine their EA to embrace a digital transformation.

 

Content that will be covered:

  • How to drive business agility
  • An agile approach to drive business agility
  • How to pull together Cloud, mobile, Agile development, and DevOps to drive rapid product development

11:30am-12:30pm: Rethinking the Wide Area Network – Modernizing Network Architecture for the Edge, Hybrid Cloud and SD WAN

 

Brian Cade, Sr. Solutions Architect, Digital Realty

 

The IT industry is currently undergoing a renaissance with respect to new networking technologies. Software and hardware are converging opening up a breadth of new options and features to enterprises. These enterprises are no longer limited to the routing capabilities and complexities of BGP. Technologies like SD WAN enable IT organizations to reduce their spend and increase application performance across the WAN. New carrier disruptors are driving down WAN pricing and combined with SD WAN are making distributed networking, aka the Edge, more cost effective. These Edge deployments can benefit organizations by putting end users closer to compute and cloud resources. This increases application and end user performance, enables multi-cloud connectivity and reduces costs. The Data Center provides the foundational platform to enable the Cloud, the Core and the Edge.

 

In this session your will learn:

  • Demystify SD WAN and where it fits with your current network.
  • What is a distributed architecture and what technologies are available to deploy it.
  • What is the Edge and where does it sit.
  • How this enables a Hybrid Multi-Cloud strategy.

Michael Sisto, Sr. Infrastructure Architect, U.S. Cellular
Mallikharjuna Valluri, Sr. Architect, US Cellular

 

This presentation provides valuable architectural insights when planning to deploy 5G, including impacts to business and operational support (B/OSS) systems. Details include a high level overview of 5G reference architectures and NSA/SA deployment options for enterprises to consider. Planning milestones and objectives for key 5G technology enablers including eMBB, uLLC and eM2M are outlined. Advanced design concepts including virtualization, network slicing, orchestration enablement, security, standards related to 3GPP/IEEE/IETF/ITU IMT-2020/NGMN and spectrum options will be covered.

3:00pm-4:00pm: Machine Learning by Example: How to Use ML in Your Business

 

Pat Ryan, Chief Architect, SPR

 

As Machine Learning continues to creep into B2B, business leaders need a foundational understanding of the emerging technology to stay ahead of competitors. This session provides a basic understanding of ML concepts through interactive, understandable examples. We’ll show you firsthand how to create ML models for various scenarios, including:

  • autonomous driving
  • predictions based on data
  • automatic image classification
  • public sentiment based on social media

 

Finally, you will take away ideas on how these comprehensible examples can be applied to a real-world scenario in your own business. No programming skills are required.

11:15am-12:15pm: The New Architecture Skillset for Digital Business

 

Shaye Robeson, Director Enterprise Architecture, U.S. Cellular

 

Digitalization has driven the convergence of business strategy and technical strategy – more than anything we’ve ever seen before – and architects need to be ready for it. Many architects who have excelled in the past are finding themselves blindsided in this new business environment – because being a great Digital Architect requires a new set of critical skills (such as Business Acumen, Perspective Fluency and Executive Influence) that many EAs haven’t had to develop before. The good news is that EA is right at the heart of this digital business convergence, and architects who master these 12 critical skills are well-positioned to help lead their organizations through current digital transformations and into the future.
