“An up-to-date enterprise architecture is a critical component of an overall technology strategy,” says Johna Till Johnson, CEO of Nemertes Research. “Too often, companies fail to think ahead about how emerging technologies will fit together, resulting in redundant processes and technologies, or ineffective solutions that don’t scale to future needs.”

Seminar and Panel Overview
IT professionals need to respond quickly and effectively to demands from customers, businesses and partners. They must also manage an ever-growing portfolio of digital labor and automation, provide ongoing innovation, and leverage machine learning and instrument feedback loops for continuous improvement.
How can they do all this while:

  • Regulating and governing a complex organization?
  • Sunsetting legacy services and reducing technical debt?
  • Incentivizing millennial developers?
  • Creating multi-modal business adoption frameworks using FinTechs, micro-services, open source software, cloud services and granular access management?
  • Choosing, onboarding, and commoditizing an ever-changing portfolio of services and tools, while ensuring continual compliance?

The answer is a solid enterprise architecture.

But yesterday’s ivory-tower enterprise architecture isn’t suited for today’s dynamic environment. This seminar focuses on how a lean, yet defined, enterprise architecture can enable Wall Street firms to compete at ever-accelerating paces, and quickly winnow through the plethora of emerging technologies to select and deploy the ones that will enable organizations to scale to meet tomorrow’s expectations.
