Over 1,700 experts in the fields of enterprise architecture (EA) and IT management registered for LeanIX’s virtual EA Connect Day, held May 20, 2020. The conference marked the largest of its kind with attendees from all over the world coming together as a community to hear our featured speakers who spanned the globe.
It’s worth looking at the advice given in Forrester’s recently published Now Tech: Enterprise Architecture Management Suites, Q1 2020. Why? Forrester emphasizes that EA professionals are increasingly relying on enterprise architecture management suites (EAMSes) to accomplish six primary challenges: modeling, strategy translation, risk management, financial management, insights and change management.
Yesterday’s Enterprise Architecture is no longer enough for competitive digital businesses. Digital transformation enabled by cloud technology has emphatically disrupted what our profession does—or, at least, what we’ve spent the past decade thinking it did—and requires us to again explore and adopt new methodologies and tools to manage IT.
By all accounts, the 2019 LeanIX EA Connect Days was a success. With 450+ participants, 27 presentations, and 1000+ trees sponsored for planting in Nicaragua by LeanIX and its attendees, the international Enterprise Architecture community took full advantage of two days’ worth of knowledge sharing on IT and modern business strategies. Not to mention an opportunity for hands-on demonstrations of our company’s latest product releases: LeanIX Cloud Native Suite and LeanIX Smart Xplore™.
Detailed summaries and video recordings of each of the EACD presentations will be posted to the LeanIX blog in the coming weeks, but until then, here's just a small glimpse of what took place.
