This is exactly what we are going to discuss, learn and experience during the upcoming Digital Architecture Summit.
In 2019, as well as the in the coming decade, modern information and communication technology combined with industrial production would redefine the Enterprise landscape completely.
If you want to know how will your Digital Enterprise perform in ABSENCE of ARCHITECTURE, don't look far, just look around your city, the roads, facility, services...clogged, isolated, brittle, difficult to change.
What are the chances that your Digital Enterprise might resemble your city of today? high, i guess. That's why it's important to apply DIGITAL ARCHITECTURE as the basis for DIGITAL TRANSFORMATION. This is the theme of this year's Digital Architecture Summit scheduled on 14-15-16 Oct in Bengaluru. The three days summit will feature over 32 architecture sessions and will focus on Business value of doing architecture. We have taken care to choose the exemplary case studies which will be delivered by the seasoned and hands-on practitioners.
Of course, it's not about a blind call on future. However, a CEO must evaluate the current standing regarding service offerings and how does Enterprise want to reinvent in the digital world.
One of the critical question in digital transformation is how much and when to start shifting the old models and structures to the new. I guess Socrates had a pearl of great wisdom to all when he said THE SECRET TO CHANGE IS TO FOCUS ALL YOUR ENERGY NOT ON FIGHTING THE OLD, BUT ON BUILDING THE NEW.
It's Probably The Only Platform In The World Which Tells About Digital Enterprise Like It Is. There is Lot of good work in the Global Enterprise Domain about Architecture. I think that message is getting clearly articulated here and I don't think there are many places people can go to hear that message so I appreciate the ICMG WORLD conference.
Andrew Bilecki, CIO, UK Power Networks observed that speakers are from various industries, all speaking about the importance of Enterprise architecture.
The best part is there are more case studies from business people less from IT people talking about how it's done. Frankly speaking, I think we need to see more of that. A greater understanding in business is needed, and again from a business point of view how they had used the Zachman framework to drive genuine business performance. It's great to hear from business people, sharing how they've become enlightened and see the power of Enterprise Architecture.
