Gartner EA Summit 2016: The Role of EA in Digitalization
This year’s Gartner EA Summit is taking place in London on 15 and 16 June, it is one of the major EAM conferences in Europe. As a Platinum Sponsor LeanIX will be at the conference and is looking forward to meeting you there.
Gartner’s theme for this year’s summit is “Leading Digital Business Innovation and Transformation“. The agenda appeals to Enterprise Architects to become leaders of digital change, especially when it comes to creating and implementing digital strategies. Of course topics like bimodal IT, cloud and Internet of Things are playing a major role in this.

Especially when it comes to bimodal IT there have been a lot of heated discussions recently. This can be quite a contentious issue – some have good arguments why bimodal IT can be risky for organizations. Notably a two-class system is feared, in which investment in “slow IT“ is neglected. On the other side our client Axel Springer is one example showing that separating slow from fast IT can be the best way to deal with the current IT landscape – if you manage to link up both aspects.

Gartner says that today 70% of Enterprise Architects are taking on a major role in digital transformation already. We can see the opportunities given by lean EAM to companies in the digital transformation but can also see that the implementation will pose challenges. That is why LeanIX is offering companies an affordable tool that can be used immediately to support this process in the best way possible.
