The Needs of Enterprise Architects

Presented by

Dennis Bijlsma, Head of Product, and Joost van den Meerakker, Agile Proposition Lead

About this talk

Everyone in the IT industry knows about enterprise architects, but what does this role actually entail? Do these people sit in their ivory tower all day, drafting draconian policies? As you can probably tell, the real answer is a lot more nuanced. In this 12-min session, we’ll talk about what we learned after interviewing 40 enterprise architects: what are their top concerns, what do they see as their challenges, what are they most proud of, and how do they stay up to date.
