Enterprise architecture (EA) is recognized as a discipline that translates business strategy into implementation of changes in an organization with support of information technology (IT). Many organizations have started to develop their EA capabilities in hope of more effectively utilizing IT resources to deliver business values. Different IT standards organizations have developed various EA frameworks. However, many enterprise architects and IT practitioners think that these frameworks are too abstract to follow, or the added business values cannot justify the EA implementation overheads. Therefore, real-world practices and experience are as important as these EA frameworks in helping enterprise architects create business values from EA.

In this seminar, several experienced IT architecture leaders in major organizations will discuss their journeys in developing EA capabilities to reap business benefits. They will cover not only the best practices but also the challenges and lessons learnt. They will also share their vision on the roles of EA in business and IT. Most of all, this event is an invaluable opportunity for us to network with the speakers and other IT architects to exchange knowledge and share experience.
