“Case Study: How Agile EA Delivered Value in 7 Week Sprints” Monday 9:15–10:15 AM
The case study, “How Agile EA Delivered Value in 7 Week Sprints” follows the experience of Conexiam and CSC creating an Agile Enterprise and using EA in an Agile way. The use case follows the creation of a high functioning EA team at CSC within three 7 Week Sprints. CSC’s EA team evolved from an ad hoc to fully iterative and self sufficient team within these 21 total weeks. The combination of Agile development elements along with EA governance and iteration methods, results in an aAgile approach to EA. Quickly identify what stakeholders needed, and map out an efficient transformative plan to accomplish stakeholder requirements. Going forward CSC is governing a multi-year initiative to create an Agile Enterprise. Using agile methods to develop EA is very effective, able to reach goals and deliver value within 7 week iterative cycles.

“Case Study: Transformation of a Legal Services Organization” Monday 4:45–5:30 PM
The “Transformation of a Legal Services Organization” case study follows the experience Conexiam had with a digital architecture transformation of CSC. CSC is a legal services organization, and relies heavily on data flow, accurate repository storage and control of data accessibility. Through the case study, we will discuss the seven aspects of a digital transformation journey. The direct changes to digital architecture in this case were the development of strategic architecture, target architecture, a migration to Cloud, a selective foray into mobile, and an adoption of DevOps model. Agile delivery in EA will also be a takeaway, and how to use analytics to power digital transformation.

“Using the Open Business Data Lake Standard” Wednesday 11:45 AM – 12:30 PM
In today’s world, we are having to do Information Architectures for very complex Enterprise-Wide Ecosystems. These ecosystems have information needs that are composed of services both cloud and non-cloud, Operational Data and Business Information, structured and semi-structured, to name but a few.
Our discussion will focus on how using a standard like the Open Business Data Lake can help address the Enterprise-Wide Ecosystems Stakeholders information concerns by creating a standards-based architecture that ensures the architecture delivered is at the right level of completeness and delivers confidence to the stakeholder.
We will also discuss the future information needs of an Enterprise-Wide Ecosystems and how a standard like the Open Business Data Lake can evolve to address those needs.
