Keynote - Enterprise Architecture = Architecting the Enterprise? - YOW! Hong Kong 2018

Architects in the enterprise are often regarded as ivory tower residents who bestow their utopian plans upon project teams in the form of colorful diagrams that bear little to no resemblance to reality. The most suspicious in this group are often the “Enterprise Architects” who are perceived as being furthest from actual technical problems.

However, large-scale IT operation and transformation require transparency across hundreds or thousands of applications running on all sorts of middleware in data centers around the globe. The very enterprise architects are likely the only ones who stand a chance to bring transparency into such an environment and who can direct IT investments in the hundreds of millions of Euros towards modernization and run-cost reduction. This sounds a lot more exciting and valuable than drawing pictures!

This session takes a serious but light-hearted look at the role of enterprise architects in modern IT organizations.

Architecting Enterprise Transformation 37 Things One Architect Knows - YOW! Hong Kong 2018

Gregor Hohpe has been a recognised expert in architecture for over 15 years, most recently with his work with a large worldwide insurance company. This is a special opportunity to spend a day learning and sharing experiences on how to navigate a digital transformation in the enterprise.

Many large enterprises are under pressure to transform their IT architecture and organization, as their business is attacked by “digital disruptors”. IT architects can play a key role in such a transformation because they combine the technical, communication, and organizational skill to apply IT for the benefit of the business. Their job is not an easy one, though: they must maneuver in an organization where IT is often still seen as a cost center, where operations means “run” as opposed to “change”, and where middle-management has become cozy neither understanding the business strategy nor the underlying technology.

This workshop illustrates how software or IT architects can play an active role in driving the digital transformation of a large enterprise. To do so, they need to extend their horizon beyond dealing with technology to navigate organizational politics, get management attention, work with external vendors, and pick the right battles. The examples and anecdotes originate from the presenter’s experience as Chief Architect in a large financial services organization that is undergoing a massive IT transformation.

Enterprise Integration Patterns 2: The Making of a Pattern Language - YOW! Singapore 2017

The book Enterprise Integration Patterns, published some 14 years ago, has become the common language for most open source ESBs. Still, integration is much more than just messaging, so there are bound to be many more integration patterns. The second volume of EIP will contain conversation patterns that describe interactions between systems over time. This talk reflects on EIP and gives a behind-the-scenes look at how this new pattern language evolves.
