I had the pleasure of being asked to speak on the Industry Perspectives Panel at the very first Troux Enterprise Architecture conference in Austin, TX. I am looking forward to networking with this vibrant community of practitioners and sharing some of my insights with the Enterprise Architecture community.

Stop by as we have some great speakers and industry experts on the panel that will be worth the watch.

Industry Perspective: Great Performances
Moderated by George Paras, A&G Editor-in-Chief; Guest speakers: Mike J. Walker, Principal Architect, Microsoft, Aleks Buterman, Founder, SenseAgility, Tim Westbrock, Managing Director EAdirections, Paul Preiss, CEO, Iasa

What is it about certain EA teams that makes them great? In this session, a panel of industry experts will share their real-world observations on how and why a few EA teams consistently deliver value to their organizations, while others struggle.
The panelists will explore and debate some of the key attributes of top performing teams, those who have mastered the balancing act required for success; teams that understand the big picture, who gather data, synthesize and analyze, create appropriate recommendations, and provide actionable guidance that informs the rest of their organization. Their influence helps shape how organizations address everything from large scale transformational change to understanding how to optimize their portfolios.
Join our panelists as they discuss their observations, take questions from the audience, and share examples of the people, processes, structures, and approaches that EA teams use to deliver Great Performances.
