Media Advisory: Forrester’s Enterprise Architecture Forum, February 17-18, 2011, In San Francisco
WHAT: Forrester Research, Inc., (Nasdaq: FORR) Enterprise Architecture Forum: Harnessing Process, Information, And Technology For Business Impact
Today’s most successful companies recognize that they’re operating in an era of digital business. This means continuously refining and adapting core business processes and effectively coupling information and technology to these processes. But it’s not always a seamless task. In most organizations, processes are uncharted; the available information is unreliable; and technology has created stovepipes, not integrated platforms for business execution. To optimize operating models and adapt to the changing business ecosystem, the traditional individual treatment of process, information, and technology must become a thing of the past.
Through keynotes and four tracks of sessions, Forrester’s Enterprise Architecture Forum 2011 will help IT professionals achieve an integrated understanding of business, information, and technology architecture — and the benefits possible when these domains are harnessed together. Attendees will explore four distinct areas: connecting business process and architecture, creating business-driven technology strategies, key technology trends to watch in 2011, and real world best practices from 2010 EA Award Winners.
WHEN: February 17-18, 2011
WHERE: The Palace Hotel, San Francisco
2 New Montgomery Street
San Francisco, CA 94104
