Join us on a conversational quest and roundtable discussions addressing how Enterprise Architecture as a Practice can move an organization out of the Digital Dark Ages and into the Enlightenment of Digital Innovation. Regardless of where you are along the path from traditional business to modern digital innovation powerhouse, we want to share with you where we have found success in a dynamic and constantly changing market. We will discuss how Enterprise Architecture when implemented as a community of practice, turns the governance and enablement structures necessary for Digital Innovation into muscle memory across the organization. In this session, we will collectively address legacy tech debt, mapping the journey, and integrating perspectives across the complex enterprise business and technology domains as you seek to move to an enlightened age of digital ascendancy.
