Class Description:

Topic: : CIOs Guide to Strategic Architecture for Digital Transformation

Topic Description:
Architecture is a critical enabler of digital transformation, IT flexibility, stability, performance, operational excellence, and more. However, in the past, Enterprise Architecture has often failed to deliver on its promise, prompting many CIOs to forego or curtail architecture effortsunfortunately, just when it is needed the most.

CIOs don't need to be experts in architecture, but they do need to understand the value proposition of architecture, why it is critical, how to make it successful, how to focus it on outcomes, and how to avoid past missteps. More importantly, CIOs need to understand how, when done right, architecture can help them achieve their goals of both operational excellence and innovation to drive transformation.

Participants in this session will learn:
What are the architecture requirements and challenges for sustainable digital transformation
How 'digital capabilities' enable business decisions about digital transformation
The architecture value proposition
How to 'ruthlessly focus' architecture on enterprise outcomes
