MACC 2018 Workshop

Technologies today can advance business in unprecedented ways and business must leverage them to stay competitive. To support and embrace digital disruption, the business must develop a separate, integrated Innovation Strategy that supports their Business Strategy. To be effective, architects must understand how to apply traditional approaches to dramatically changing technology landscape so Architecture Strategy is the bridge between Business and Innovation Strategy that provides target state architectures and roadmaps for execution of digital business transformation.

Enterprise Architects will become the agents of change in the enterprise as they collaborate with Business Architects to bridge architecture strategy with aligned business and innovation strategies. Architecture processes will need to be modified to support digital disruption and innovation. New disruptive technologies will need to quickly be assessed to determine their use in enterprise transformation. What technologies should be selected? What drives the selection process? How do these technologies support a target state architecture that aligns with the business and innovation strategy? What does this mean to the collaborative architecture process as Solution, Security, Information, Application and Infrastructure architects as projects are delivered to support business and innovation strategies.

We are excited to announce that the Midwest Architecture Community Collaboration is continuing to provide you with a one-day architecture workshop to be held in conjunction with the MACC 2018 Conference: “Scaling Disruptive Technologies-Moving from Innovation to Enterprise Transformation”. In this workshop, we will work through a case study using a pragmatic approach to support a collaborative architecture process that is informed by target state architectures supporting the new world of architecture and increased expectations of all architects involved in the delivery of innovative solutions to the enterprise.  A mix of presentation, group discussions, and exercises will be used to provide an understanding of the role each discipline plays.

This workshop is for all architects who want to understand a pragmatic approach to work collaboratively with other architects to deliver better business solutions. We invite you to participate, contribute, collaborate and learn from colleagues across architectural disciplines.
