Many of you who read Gartner blogs and specifically our EA team’s blogs will be attending our Symposium/ITxpo conference next week. As I was using the “My Agenda” function to setup my own time, I thought it would be wise to mention a few things we’re covering on EA topics at the conference for others attending. EA analysts at Symposium Orlando include: Philip Allega, Scott Bittler, Betsy Burton, Nick Gall and David Newman.
Nick and David are both discussing Hybrid Thinking, then Nick adds EA teams and EA maturity and David adds Information Sharing. Philip is discussing EA for CIOs, EA and portfolio management, and ITScore. Betsy is discussing EBA and EA governance, along with Pattern Based Strategy. Scott is discussing EA principles, EA communications, EA requirements and the EA Hype Cycle. I’ll be floating around, meeting with clients and prospects and otherwise meeting all of you attending at the various functions. We’d all love to talk to you if you’re attending, so do please say hello. There will be EA birds-of-a-feather seating at breakfasts as well.
The full layout of different choices (sessions, analyst user roundtables, workshops, and case studies) is listed here. The sessions are described in the “My Agenda” function here. A few things that are new that you may want to check out include:
- ITScore — we’ve updated the EA Maturity Assessment, and Phil will be discussing this 9am Tuesday. Clients can prepare by reading this in advance: ITScore for Enterprise Architecture (G00205016)
- EA Hype Cycle — we’ve created this for the first time, and Scott will be discussing it 12:30pm Tuesday. Clients can prepare by reading this in advance: Hype Cycle for Enterprise Architecture, 2010 (G00201646)
- (check the my agenda function to confirm availability (some workshops and roundtables may be full already)
Finally, if you are attending, please don’t hesitate to setup a one-on-one (1-1) meeting with me or our other EA team members attending: Philip Allega, Scott Bittler, Betsy Burton, Nick Gall and David Newman. You can schedule as you need at the Dolphin Pacific Hall scheduling desk or at interactive kiosks around the event.
See you there!
