Transform EA Practices To Accelerate Your Future Fit Journey

Despite its widespread adoption in mature organizations, enterprise architecture (EA) continues to suffer from perception problems. In the world of hypergrowth, digital-first, cloud-native startup firms, EA has a reputation for not being pragmatic — or worse, being unnecessary. This session gives technology leaders in Asia Pacific and beyond a holistic view of how to bridge different worlds within EA practices, accelerate digital transformation, and become future fit.

Key takeaways:

  • What defines a high-performing EA practice and the business value that it offers
  • The approach that EA leaders should take to transform their EA practices
  • The most critical factors impacting technology architecture in the cloud-native era

Presented by: Charlie Dai, VP, Research Director, Forrester
