I’m looking forward to speaking about trends in enterprise architecture at the EA2015 conference this week on 4 November in Copenhagen. Having spoken at this annual conference over the past several years, it has become my annual “state-of-the-union” address to the Danish EA community.
This year, I will talk about several trends and issues. The outline of the lecture looks like this:
- The current state of #EntArch
- So, is there a problem?
- “The only thing that’s changed, is everything”
- EA scholary analysis
- EA scope creep
- We’re not in Kansas anymore
- Enterprise Investment
- Enterprise Design
You can get my slides here, but most of them are not very informative on their own.
Although I use different evidence, many of my points are also expressed in my crossroads blog post and article. But I will also bring up several other points. I will present findings from other recent research we’ve made in the EA field. On EA and innovation, and more about the role the the architects.
Oh, and I’ve even invented a new word: Gartnertology. This I use to discuss whether Gartner is becoming something akin to a religious cult. I of course here refer to Kuno Brodersen’s recent blog post about Gartner’s tool assessment practice, but I will focus more on Gartner’s recent messages about digital business, and discuss these. And then rather quickly move on to something more interesting, including enterprise investment and enterprise design.
All in all, a lot of content for a 45 minutes lecture. So participants will be told to fasten their seat-belts.
