Bringing Together Enterprise Architects with the Right Skills, the Right Standards, the Right Framework, and the Right Style of Architecture

The Key Ingredients to Successful Enterprise Architecture

What should all successful Enterprise Architects have in common? The right skills, the right experience, the right standards and the right style for architectures.

The Enterprise Architecture Practitioners Conference in Bangalore featured a morning plenary session on each day followed by afternoon tracks and sessions where attendees heard what best practices, standards, tools and technologies are being used to develop today's most successful enterprise architectures.

Topics ranged from the relation of SOA to Enterprise Architecture and TOGAF, to practical issues of deployment and governance, and the presentations included case studies of SOA in action.

Each day included a mix of end-user case studies, testimonials and panel discussions examining various focus areas.
