11:30am – 12:30pm: Leadership for Enterprise Architects: How to Measure and Manage Technical Debt

Running a successful business requires constant trade-offs between financial, time and technical constraints.
But as technical debt builds up it can impact business risk, IT costs, service outages and time-to-market. Architects can guide CIOs and business leaders in understanding which IT assets to prioritize, when it’s time to migrate, and the business costs and opportunities of doing so.

 


1:30pm – 2:30pm: Transforming Enterprise Architecture Today to Embrace Generative AI Tomorrow

 

Enterprise architecture is one of the industries that will benefit the most from the support of generative artificial intelligence (AI) tools.There are five key areas where AI can support enterprise architects:

*Minimize the time spent on low-value tasks and increase presence and collaboration between the business and IT
*Reduce time and effort needed to govern architecture and technology at the enterprise level
*Improve quality of analysis using up-to-date IT landscape data
*Ensure best compliant architecture using guided design and automated model generation
*Accelerate the transfer of knowledge

 

 


2:30pm – 3:00pm: Refreshment Break


 

 

3:00pm – 4:00pm: An Enterprise Architecture Innovation Framework

 

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!

 


 

4:00pm – 5:00pm: How to Measure the Value of Enterprise Architecture (Panel Discussion)

 

Panelists include:

 

  • Chuck Lawton, Sr, Director, Enterprise Architecture, EVERSANA
  • Matt Jones,  Senior Manager, Information Technology & Security Operations, The Fitch Group
  • Karen Semonson, Senior Advisor, FarWell
  • Yuri Camargo, Application Architecture Director, Avanade
  • Todd Fontana, Microsoft 365 Architect & Collaboration Manager, John Bean Technologies Corporation

One way to measure the success of enterprise architecture is by creating IT roadmaps that support business objectives. The more objectives the IT roadmap supports, the better we can conclude the success of EA within the business, and the higher quality of the end result can be.
