EA Café 19: Enterprise Architecture in the Era of Consumerization plus Cloud.

Dear EA professional,

If you have been an Enterprise Architect for some time, no doubt the name of Chris Potts will ring a bell. Chris is a corporate strategist, specialising in Enterprise Investment.

In 1994 he established the first formal Enterprise Architecture (EA) capability in the company he worked for.  This kick-started Chris’s interest in corporate strategies, including the differences and independencies between strategy, architecture and investments, and how enterprises create value by investing in invest in change and IT.

Nowadays he is an independent practitioner and mentor. At our Architect Café he will present the following topic: “Enterprise Architecture in the Era of Consumerization plus Cloud.”

The combination of consumerization and cloud has changed the game for enterprises the world over.  The architectural challenge is to achieve a radically different balance between outside-in and inside-out design.  For Enterprise Architects themselves, the opportunity is about influencing and leading senior decision-makers in assessing the potential scenarios for their strategies and business models, choosing the best architectural innovations to invest in, and making the very most of those investments.

Come and participate in the most important EA conversation that’s happening right now!

EA Café 15: EA and innovation

Dear EA professional,

With spring coming up, it is time to present you the next Architect Café on Thursday 10th of May.

Ever wondered how EA can contribute to innovation? Also, how to bring innovation to existing EA practices? Or do you rather think of EA and innovation as a contradiction in itself?

Come and find out by participating in our interesting and fun workshop!

Deloitte Belgium has run for several years now “Innovation Weeks” for several clients. Our Deloitte innovation services assist and advise clients on their innovation journey, from ideation to implementation to assessment. The facilitators will bring these concepts now to EA.

This highly interactive session will be facilitated by 4 Deloitte EA practitioners: Philip Van Langenhove, Koert Declercq, Michel Dirkx and Thomas Olyslaegers.

AE will be the host of this Architect Café.

The Architect Café will be held in the AE offices in Haasrode. Doors are open as from 17h30 and the presentations will be held from 18h to 20h00 (with networking event after the presentations). If you would like to register, please click here.
