10:30am-11:30am: Cloud Native Software and its Impact on Enterprise Architecture

 

Patrick Emmons, CEO, DragonSpears

 

All roads lead to the Cloud, that much is clear to everyone at this point. Cloud native software is how startups and some larger organizations are taking advantage of this new paradigm. How does this affect the Enterprise Architect? Patrick Emmons is going to share what EAs can do to embrace the upcoming challenges and opportunities…and make sure you don’t get stuck in Mode 1 purgatory.

11:30am-12:30pm: Enterprise Architecture Leadership: Creating a Value Proposition

 

 

Many enterprises are either designing, starting, restarting or refining their EA program. It is now more important than even to cultivate a business outcome driven approach. However, most enterprises don’t know how to successfully develop, master and position a value proposition to their enterprise.

 

In this session attendees will learn:

  • The importance of the value proposition
  • What should be included in the value proposition

 

 


12:30pm – 1:30pm Luncheon


1:30pm-2:30pm: Roadmaps in Enterprise Architecture: Current vs. Future State Architectures

 

 

Roadmaps are a fundamental part of strategic planning and enterprise architecture. It allows businesses to map out a set of actions that are required to move from where it is today, to where it wants to go; those actions turn into plans. Roadmapping enables organizations to tie strategy to deliverables using enterprise architecture, crucial for delivering on initiatives that have been prioritized.

 


2:30pm – 3:00pm: Refreshment Break


3:00pm-4:00pm: How to Derive and Implement Metrics to Achieve EA Governance Objectives

 

 

After you have designed and/or refined your EA governance framework, it is best to design easy-to-use metrics to help maximize the effectiveness of the governance process.

 

Implementing EA metrics can help simplify and validate architecture decisions and can then be used to articulate the value of the architecture to the business.

 

In this session, attendees will learn:

  • How to identify metrics that can be used by both the business and IT
  • How to assess and evaluate IT assets and their value
  • How to measure alignment with business objectives
  • How to measure risks inherent in planning for legacy modernization business transformation, or application rationalization initiatives
  • A series of steps for leveraging EA metrics

 


4:00pm-5:00pm: Business Outcome Driven EA and Alignment: Lessons Learned from the Field

 

Panelists will include:
Nimrod Bareket, Senior Enterprise Architect, US Cellular
and other Chief Enterprise Architects sharing experiences and lessons learned

 

Old EA architectures focused on the needs of enterprise architects. To move the business forward, IT organizations must focus on creating a business outcome driven EA.

 

In this session, experienced EAs will shared their experiences adopting a business driven Enterprise Architecture.

 

Areas that will be covered include:

  • How this will improve business processes
  • Addressing specific business outcomes
  • How to work with other business and IT disciplines such as PPM, BI, Finance and HR
  • What is the ROI?
  • How to balance the right amount of resource investment

Each attendee will receive a certificate awarding 7 CPE credits for CISSP continuing education, in addition to 0.7 CEUs and 7 PDUs. CISSP is a registered certification mark of (ISC)², Inc.
