The Troux Worldwide Conference is returning to Austin, Texas on March 19-20, 2013. If you are a Troux customer, partner, or actively involved in Enterprise Architecture (EA) or Enterprise Portfolio Management (EPM), this is your opportunity to enjoy peer networking and joint learning with a focus on delivering rapid results with Troux EPM solutions.
I’m flattered and feel very fortunate to be invited back to speak on the EA Industry Expert Panel for a third year in a row! This is certainly an honor and I thank Troux for the opportunity to be invited back to this exclusive event each year. I especially am humbled to be surrounded by a great line up of speakers and EA practitioners.
It should be a great event!
If there are folks that are the conference or in the Austin area that want to meet up to discuss EA please let me know either through the comments on this post or through Twitter.
You can see me in two sessions:
- Presentation – Highly Impactful EA Organizations Make Value Driven Decisions
- EA Industry Expert Panel – Success in the Connected Enterprise
Below I have provided the descriptions of each:
Highly Impactful EA Organizations Make Value Driven Decisions
Enterprise Architects are faced with a rapidly changing business climate, competitive pressures and a shifting technology landscape that is forcing the enterprise to evolve. With this acceleration of change in the market it requires faster decisions that are well informed to maximize value. Enterprise Architects are at the tip of the spear to enable this change but need the tools.
In this session I will explore one of the proven practices that I have found from highly impactful Enterprise Architecture (EA) organizations, namely enterprise portfolios. Enterprise portfolios extend past the traditional project and program discipline to cover all aspects of the enterprise. Moving from disconnected, static and context-less pieces of data to a governed portfolio of enterprise knowledge that can maximize value and mitigate risk to our businesses.
Success in the Connected Enterprise
Success in the connected enterprise requires that executives understand the cause-effect relationships that exist across their organization. They must know what can and should change, when to change it, and where to take risks, all while avoiding unintended consequences. Transforming people, product and processes is difficult, but it is even harder without having access to detailed and reliable knowledge about how the parts of their organizations fit together, operate and evolve. In this session our panelists will share their personal insights, and answer your questions, on how they use various portfolio concepts to navigate and guide critical decision-making in their organizations
