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. 2010 presents a variety of technologies that may deliver IT efficiencies on a grand scale. Technologies such as desktop virtualization, cloud computing, mobile application delivery 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?

Conference Program

8:00am - 9:00am - Registration and Continental Breakfast

Patel

9:00am-10:00am

How to Develop an Enterprise Architecture Governance Framework

Ajay Patel, Technology Leader, Manager, Agilysys

Modern Enterprise Architecture is driven by a combination of business and IT architectures. For EA to achieve its goals a governance framework needs to be implemented so that it is pervasive throughout the organization at both strategic and tactical levels. EA governance is viewed as a part of IT governance and begins with the development of a solid business strategy. Once the business strategy is defined the IT strategy starts to evolve which then helps to form an EA Governance Framework.

In this session attendees will learn:

  • How to design an EA governance framework
  • How to make sure the framework aligns with business needs
  • When to revisit the framework for refinements
  • How to involve stakeholders from the business and IT

10:00am -10:30am - Refreshment Break

Moturu

10:30am-11:30am

How to Define the Architectural Changes in Terms the Business can Understand

Praveen Moturu, Enterprise Architect, Navistar

One of the main challenges many IT organizations face is articulating value to the business in terms they can understand. Enterprise architecture is no different and can be even more complicated given how abstract it can be.

In this session attendees will learn how to articulate the current architecture and proposed changes in terms that business can understand.

Topics that will be covered in terms of business value include:

  • Business Architecture
  • Data Architecture
  • Applications Architecture
  • Technology Architecture

Chernov

11:30am-12:30pm

How to Derive and Implement Metrics to Achieve EA Governance Objectives

Sergey Chernov, Manager, Enterprise Architecture, NiSource

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

12:30pm - 1:30pm Luncheon

Vaselopulos

1:30pm-2:30pm

How to be Relevant in 2011: Selecting Technologies that are Business Enablers

Jim Vaselopulos, Vice President, PSC Group, LLC

With limited budgets, staff, and time, CIO's must be shrewd in selecting the right projects, methods and technologies. Irrespective of elegance or merit, technologies must be evaluated in the context of business value.

In this session attendees will learn:

  • How to evaluate a list of emerging technologies and their importance to the business
  • An understanding of what the growth mechanisms are to your respective business
  • Best practices for clearly identifying business project needs and prioritization
  • How to work the CIO and IT enablement challenges
  • How to articulate the direct contribution in business terms to the board, the business units and IT
  • How to evangelize to the IT organization that their work on new technologies is an investment to the business and how they can develop that mindset
  • How to determine when a new technology is "ripe" enough for your company's us

2:30pm - 3:00pm - Refreshment Break

 

3:00pm-4:00pm

How to Integrate Combinations of New Technologies into the Current Architecture

Ganapathy Subbarayalu, Managing Architect, Allstate

When evaluating these new technologies for IT modernization, one must evaluate how well they can be implemented with their existing environment technically as well as how they can lead to business improvement, cost savings, and new services being offered to internal users.

In this session, attendees will learn how to build a plan that evaluates many new technologies as to how well they can be implemented in their current environment.
