EA Summit London – That’s a Wrap!

by Brian Burke  |  May 19, 2010  |  Comments Off on EA Summit London – That’s a Wrap!

We closed out another great EA Summit in London yesterday!  Dave Aron delivered an insightful talk on how to leverage business model analogies to bring some new ideas to the business strategy planning table. 

And to wrap it up, Andy Kyte discussed how to overhaul a bloated application portfolio and of course applied all of his talents for delivering great research in a very entertaining way.

I had a meeting with a delegate today who told me that they have been asked to cut their IT budget by 40%.  I thought the worst was over in this downturn!

First ash clouds threatened our delegate’s arrival and now a strike by British Airways crew threatens their departure – I hope our delegates get home without too much disruption today.  Thanks to all of our delegates and sponsors for coming to the Summit and making this a great event.

We will be back next year with the EA Summit 2011 on the 9th – 10th May at the Park Plaza hotel in  London.  I’m looking forward to seeing you there!
