Day two was jam packed with content from both Gartner analysts and case studies. I personally led a round table session on innovation with a group of about ten people which led to some amazing insights, the most interesting was a discussion on how to build a passion for innovation in an organization. Andy Kyte delivered a brilliant talk on Applications Overhaul. As always, Andy provides enlightening ideas in a very entertaining way. My favorite quote from Andy, “Applications are dogs not puppies”.
Philip Allega introduced Gartner’s IT Market Clock – a new tool for looking at technology lifecycles. I loved the part where he describes airline architects as, people who want to define the architecture based on articles found in airline magazines.
Jeff Gibson delivered an insightful presentation on team dynamics, and JP Rangaswami, Chief Scientist from BT talked about design from a business perspective. Check out other comments on Twitter hashtag #GartnerEA.
