What are you doing on June 4th? If you’re a business or technology leader, you might be heading to the Gartner Enterprise Architecture Summit. Every year, EA is recognized by more and more CIOs and other executives as the window into their organization and the business landscape. Leadership requires decision-making, and decision-making requires accurate information delivered quickly. When executives can pull back the curtains and throw open the shutters, information about the operating model streams in, providing context and perspective.
With EA delivering results to the C-suite, it’s no surprise that Gartner continues to see increases in the number of decision-makers and innovators attending the EA Summit. Check out some of the hot topics at the center of this year’s event:
To make this valuable, it can’t just be talk. Academic discussions are (yawn) entertaining at best. It has to be about action. Defining goals that are both realistic and worthwhile. Crafting strategies that actually achieve goals. Ensuring business activities and IT are supporting corporate strategies.
You know, delivering results.
How does MEGA fit into this? Not only have we been ranked as a Leader in Gartner’s Enterprise Architecture Magic Quadrant five years in a row, but MEGA acts as a business GPS to help companies understand where they are, where they want to take the business, and how they’re going to get there.
Kevin Costa, MEGA’s esteemed orator du jour, will be presenting on “Using Business Capability Maps to Deliver Business Outcomes”. Wednesday, June 4th at 1pm in the Solution Showcase Theater (Prince George A), following lunch, Kevin will review how to help executives make key decisions more quickly, how and why to share business capabilities with management, and how you can understand where to focus your efforts.
Following that, visit booth 201. Come talk to Kevin, Rick, Dan, Jacqui, and David. Tell them about your goals and challenges, have a coffee or a beer, and maybe uncover ideas about how to turn some of Gartner’s discussions into actions for your business.
