Scaling the EA Role: Business and Technology Innovation - Bridge the Gap Between Strategy and Execution.

Digital business has moved from theory to practice, with the results to prove it. 12% of CEOs report that they are already reaping the rewards of digital business at scale. Another 19% claim to be at the scaling stage today. That leaves the majority of organizations well behind the digital business pioneers, and scrambling to catch up. What does that mean for you as an enterprise architecture and technology innovation leader? You must scale your role to meet growing digital expectations in the future - and you must act now or risk being left behind. Gartner Enterprise Architecture & Technology Innovation Summit, 22-23 May, in London, UK, is the best place to start. Here, you will explore the technologies, tools, techniques, skills and digital innovation strategies that today’s EA leadership requires—and learn how to apply those insights to your own organization’s goals and needs.
