Key Take-Aways from the 2015 Summit

Image Shift to a focus on business outcomes As the digital tide transforms the business, enterprise architects, solution architects and application infrastructure leaders must get involved much earlier in the development
cycle, helping to enable and guide technology decisions as trusted advisors.

Go bimodal to deliver digital business capabilities Digital business requires two modes of development, one that’s predictable, reliable and fairly inflexible, and another that’s exploratory, improvisational, highly adaptive and often disruptive.

Embrace digital humanism to lead innovation As smart machines and the Internet of Things bring technology deeper into our lives, applications must deliver valuable experiences that are richly contextual and inspire participation. People are in the power seat.

Bury the zombies! It’s time to decommission aging apps Half-dead apps are clogging portfolios, thanks to a lack of life cycle planning and post-project cost transparency. Designate an application undertaker, create a process and clear out the dead wood to make room for innovation.

"Great Conference. Very informative for architects. Absolute must for keeping up to date with the applications."

- Raj Nakka, Tech Principal FedEx

"Very comprehensive event. Provided a balance of where IT is at present and where it needs to be positioned in the emerging digital space"

- Roberto Alex Romano, Web Development Supervisor Baptist Health South Florida
