As large enterprises face competition from digital disruptors, they must change their IT from a low-cost service provider to an innovative business partner and opportunity driver. Such a transformation requires fundamental changes in technology, processes, and organizational setup. Architects play a critical role in this transformation because they can “ride the architect elevator” between the penthouse and the engine room to connect company strategy with concrete technology implementation.
Join Gregor Hohpe for a highly interactive workshop that shows you how to recognize and overcome the challenges digital disruption places on traditional enterprises. IT architects and IT managers will learn how to take an active role in driving IT transformation at all levels of the organization, while senior developers and aspiring architects will learn how to get started on a chief architect career path. Through a combination of lecture, discussion, and exercises, you’ll understand your role in the broader context of a large organization, including understanding corporate strategy, organizational structures and dynamics, senior management communication, and vendor management.
The workshop discusses cultural, organizational, and communication aspects rather than specific technologies.
