Technology companies are taking over. The thinking, design and language are now different. This presentation will focus on the trends of modern EA from the context of survival in a real sense. It is no longer about aligning Technology with the business, Technology is the business.
BIO: Andrew Bird wants to live in a world where business and IT work as one, and he’s on a mission to bring the two seamlessly together. Visionary enterprise architect. Strategic leader. He’s different. He simplifies. He brings order. He tells clients not just the ‘what’, but the ‘how’. He finds the business within a business. Microsoft’s Regional Director for the Silicon Valley, Juval Lowy, extols his “unique combination of leadership, business acumen and interpersonal skills.” His engagements - 100+ projects, totalling over a £billion so far … prove the point. When he isn’t using his ‘past life’ experience as CTO, CIO and Head of Architecture to advise governments, multi-nationals, defence contractors, arts and media organisations, healthcare groups and financial institutions, Andrew is committed to ending the drought of good software architects. Having been mentored by some of the best in the business, he’s now sharing his knowledge with the next generation of software engineers.
