Conference on Enterprise Architecture in the Digital Era: Trends, Opportunities and Challenges

24th and 25th May, at Management Development Institute-Gurgaon

Conference Background

Digitalization is changing the way organizations plan, design, deliver and track their goods and services. The industry has moved from the paradigm of information technology merely being an enabler, to being the driver. Today technology drives business, and this is accentuated by the advent of organizations that are born digital, or the digital natives. The pace and diversity that organization leaders have to contend with, pulls them in different directions, more often than not to the detriment of the organization.

In this fast-paced era, the organization leaders need to rely on innovation to understand customers and embrace disruptive information technologies. This demands holistic integrated thinking and a deep understanding of how all the seemingly disparate dimensions come together to provide sustained differentiation and competitive edge. Competing on processes and products is passé. Organizations today, are creating platforms and building ecosystems anchored around such platforms. Platform-enabled ecosystems are making new business models possible and accelerating network effects by creating value and participation. This is therefore, generating the need for enterprise architects like never before. Enterprise architecture drives transformation that generates newer opportunities through technology innovation, and enterprise architects make this happen. For leaders, the overarching desire to maintain oversight, gain insight and acquire foresight is unparalleled.

One of the largest digitalization initiatives in the world is the Digital India, which aims to transform India into a digitally empowered society and knowledge economy. The NITI Aayog has set a target of US$ 1 Trillion by 2025 for the digital economy in India. Transformation of this scale and complexity needs to be orchestrated and architected. The role of enterprise architecture in making this happen cannot be overemphasized. In realizing the criticality, the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology has taken the lead to develop a national framework for enterprise architecture called the India Enterprise Architecture Framework (IndEA), this has been notified as a national standard by the Government of India this month.

There is clearly a need for greater understanding of current and emerging trends, the opportunities that are being created constantly and the challenges faced in taking full benefits of such opportunities.

Topics of Interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Enterprise Architecture and Digitalization
  • Enterprise Architecture Frameworks and Methods
  • Enterprise Architecture in Government
  • Best Practices in Enterprise Architecture
  • Enterprise Architecture with Emerging Technologies such as Cloud, IoT, AI and Blockchain etc.

With more than 630 member organizations, we have a diverse membership that spans all sectors of the IT community; customers, systems and solutions suppliers, tool vendors, integrators and consultants, as well as academics and researchers. TOGAF®, an Open Group standard, is a proven enterprise architecture methodology and framework used by the world’s leading organizations to improve business efficiency. It is the most prominent and reliable architecture approach, ensuring consistent standards, methods, and ommunication among enterprise architecture professionals. The TOGAF standard is widely used for developing a broad range of different enterprise architectures. The TOGAF framework complements, and can be used in conjunction with, other frameworks that are more focused on specific deliverables for particular vertical sectors such as Government, Telecommunications, Manufacturing, Defense, and Finance.
