2-day In-person Seminar: What does an effective Enterprise Architecture Program look like when implemented? By Greg Kohl

Date: 20-Feb-14 to 21-Feb-14
Location: Hilton Zurich Airport / Zurich / Switzerland
Category: Education IT Technology Engineering Conferences & Trade Fairs

Today's Business/IT Environment for medium and large corporations can often be characterized as:
An IT environment that is highly complex & costly - organizations were spending more and more money extending, enhancing, and maintaining existing IT systems and services
Ineffective business alignment - organizations were finding it more and more difficult to keep their increasingly expensive IT systems aligned with business needs and drive the level of innovation required to grow the business

Many organizations have attempted to build an Enterprise Architecture (EA) Team to address these issues.

Most have failed to deliver what the business wants - an effective balance of spending control while adding flexibility and the ability to innovate & grow the business as needed

An effective EA Program should play a leadership role in addressing these needs & wants.

An effective Enterprise Architecture (EA) Program can deliver significant benefits to an organization including:
Reduced cost to maintain existing IT systems by reducing the number of technologies in operation (lower the cost of maintenance and training) as well as increasing the utilization of IT assets
Reduced time to bring new business products/services to the market by enabling the re-use of Business and IT services
Increased effectiveness of IT resources (capacity planning, solution teams) including increased efficiency of operation (design for change)
Increased effectiveness of Business resources by providing information and support for decision making (triggers points) and enabling impact analysis (reduce technology risk)
Reduce the all-to-often "firedrills" that divert focus from business imperatives

Why should you attend:
IT and Business Leaders that want to hear some ideas on how to make dramatic improvements in their ability to control IT costs as well as improving their companies' ability to respond effectively to business opportunities.
