Enterprise Architecture Trends 2015

I’m looking forward to speaking about trends in enterprise architecture at the EA2015 conference on 4 November in Copenhagen. Having spoken at this annual conference over the past several years, it is 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:

  1. The current state of #EntArch
  2. So, is there a problem?
  3. “The only thing that’s changed, is everything”
  4. EA scholary analysis
  5. EA scope creep
  6. Gartnertology
  7. We’re not in Kansas anymore
  8. Enterprise Investment
  9. Enterprise Design
  10. Suggestions

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’ve even invented a new word: Gartnertology. This I use to describe how Gartner is becoming something akin to a religious cult.

I will of course here refer to Kuno Brodersen’s recent blog post about Gartner’s tool assessment practice, but 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.

Enterprise Investment Certification Course

Mastering Enterprise Investment Practitioner Certification Course

How good is your enterprise at delivering value through change?

This intensive three-day course developed and delivered by Chris Potts provides a comprehensive exploration of the strategy, key principles and techniques for success at Enterprise Investment.

By combining Enterprise Architecture and Investment Portfolio Management into one highly-influential leadership strategy, Enterprise Investment can deliver much more than the sum of these two individual disciplines.

It concludes with an examination on the syllabus it has covered, providing successful delegates with a Practitioner Certificate in Strategies for Enterprise Investment.

The next course is held in Farum, Denmark, on 23-25 November 2015.
