WHAT: Forrester Research, Inc. (Nasdaq: FORR) Enterprise Architecture Forum 2008: Building An Innovation Culture: Shaping Your Future With Enterprise Architecture.

Today’s businesses require innovative practices and capabilities to increase bottom-line performance and keep up with the competition. Enterprise Architecture professionals are in a unique position to drive the IT innovation that supports these business initiatives. But, to be effective, Enterprise Architecture professionals must be able to articulate business strategy better than their business executives and govern IT implementations to ensure that the enterprise is headed toward its strategic goals.

Designed for Enterprise Architecture professionals, the inaugural Enterprise Architecture Forum is also well-suited for business analysts and consultants and other professionals that play a role in driving IT innovation, such as Application Development & Program Management professionals and Information & Knowledge Management professionals. The forum will demonstrate to attendees how a well-executed enterprise architecture program can accelerate value delivery using technology trends — such as service-oriented architecture, business process management, and Web 2.0 — and proactive approaches to improve business efficiency and flexibility.
