Avolution’s co-founder, Dr Tim O’Neill, to chair debate on ‘Evolving Architecture Strategies’.

For the second consecutive year, Avolution is sponsoring the IDC Enterprise Architecture Conference, this year taking place at Tower Hill, London on March 13th. The company is showcasing the latest release of its flagship product, ABACUS® 4.2, as well as leading a roundtable discussion, “Enterprise Architecture, the evolution from modelling to visualisation and analytics to determine an optimal architecture strategy”.

Enterprise architects have one of the most complex jobs in the organisation.  Their role is to understand both the needs and strategy of the business and translate this into a practical roadmap for IT delivery and transformation. 

During this conference, IDC will explore both sides of the coin:

• How business trends are transforming the way that IT needs to be delivered within the organisation; and
• How new technology trends are driving transformation.

Leading analysts and industry experts will examine:

• Developing an enterprise architecture strategy
• Aligning technology and application strategy with the business
• Providing Technology and Application Implementation Models, based on Architecture Models, for Enterprise Management and Systems • Management
• Integrating enterprise architecture tools with BPM and SOA etc
• Application portfolio management
• Developing effective governance processes for IT architecture and investment
