Gartner EA Summit 2016 – Enterprise Architects have a lead role when it comes to Digitization

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.

This is a brief comparison of the differences between the 2012 and 2013 Magic Quadrants for Enterprise Architecture Tools based just on the X/Y position in the quadrant. We have chosen this approach because many people just look at the position in the quadrant and don’t read the report in detail. 

Analyzing the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Architecture Tools 2013 is quite interesting. In 2012 the Leader Quadrant was quite crowded and a couple of products very close to each other. This year Gartner has chosen to provide more clarity of the position of each tool and separates tools much more from each other. In the 2013 Quadrant you can draw a line from the bottom left to upper right where most tools are at.
