Back in 2011, Gartner predicted that within 10 years, the majority of global enterprises would support Enterprise Architecture (EA) as a distinct discipline that is integral to business planning. Now, in 2020, EA has grown from a support function into a highly strategic one, responsible for designing an intelligent information architecture that supports digitalisation and innovation. By 2023, 60% of EA practices will design intelligence into their business and operating models to support strategy development and execution.
Today, and for the foreseeable future, organisations will face ever-increasing levels of complexity and uncertainty. Many believe that EA will help organisations address such difficult terrain by guiding the design of adaptive and resilient enterprises and their integrated information systems.
As a first step to starting EA adoption as a solution for overcoming the future enterprise challenges, Singapore Computer Society EA Chapter is bringing our first virtual conference to you!

The virtual Conference will deliberate on the following:

  • -Best practices for driving successful digital transformation journey
  • -Transform towards digital business with enterprise architecture
  • -Design the organisations with strategic values and new capabilities to thrive in the today uncertain world
  • -Experience sharing on the effective EAO functions in addressing to various stakeholders' requirements
