Gartner predicts that by 2012 40% of today's enterprise architecture programs will be stopped (0.8 probability)

Enterprise architecture goes beyond technology alone. Tied to ever-changing business directions, enterprise architecture is a dynamic and agile process that helps define the future state required to meet that business direction. Practitioners in this discipline provide guidance to their business as to how business and IT can work together to solve business challenges.

Impacting the organizations' ability to mobilize technology for business advantage is a task every enterprise architect wants to take on. But the daily pressures and demands of system delivery and operations often get in the way of creating and using an effective enterprise architecture (EA). In addition, as the complexity and competitive importance of Information Technology continues to accelerate, organizations are increasing; initiating or escalating enterprise architecture programs to better cope with unprecedented rates of change. However, most enterprise architecture initiatives fail to demonstrate sufficient value to the business or even to various parts of IT to sustain themselves over the long run. Innovation and the ability to manage and select appropriate technology trends in support of ones business drive architectural direction, guidance and governance.

Business context is the starting point for the 2007 Summit, which concentrates on the areas that are clearly of concern to enterprise architects. It will highlight exactly when to engage in key activities and what specific tools are available in critical phases, thereby providing vital assistance in avoiding becoming part of the above statistic. We will report on key developments and trends that are important to the role of the enterprise architect, providing insight, analysis and guidance - whatever stage your project is at.

This year's Gartner Enterprise Architecture Summit is the EA event you can't afford to miss! We have used our market intelligence and survey results to create a ground-breaking program. Nowhere else will you get direct access to leading Gartner analysts sharing their latest independent research and best practices, along with hearing about EA successes and insights from practitioners in leading organizations.

Over the course of three tracks, you and your colleagues will learn:
