Conference Overview

For IT managers across the government, it can seem like the perfect storm: new mandates are shifting the enterprise in one direction, new budget pressures are forcing greater scrutiny of existing investments and the shape of computing, Enterprise Architects find themselves once again at the center of the storm. How will EA help to guide the adoption of a shared-first infrastructure? How is it fostering the creation of a secure cloud environment? And what will be the role of EA in big data? Get your most pressing EA questions answered at the 10th Annual Enterprise Architecture Conference.

1105 Government Information Group’s 10th Annual Enterprise Architecture Conference and Expo will bring together chief enterprise architects, CIOs, and program managers from across federal civilian agencies, the Department of Defense and state and local organizations, as well as industry to discuss the critical application of EA methodologies to today’s top government priorities, including: Cloud Computing, Shared Services, Information Sharing, Cybersecurity and Mobility.

EA 2012 Will Focus On The Following Dynamic Educational Tracks:

Enterprise Track: Mapping a Strategy 

With the threat of sequestration on the horizon, Mapping a Strategy takes a big picture view of Enterprise Architecture and its impact on business processes, organizational culture and ROI. From GAO’s 2012 report on program duplication and PortfolioStat to the new Common Approach to FEA 2.0, sessions will discuss how EA can be used to meet the Administration’s and agencies’ mission through operational efficiency and innovation.

Solutions Track: Honing the Tactics

Enterprise Architects find themselves at the center of architecting 21st century agile development with another set of maps to incorporate from the Digital Government Strategy to shared services. Honing the Tactics will feature case studies, methodologies, and frameworks illustrating the practical application and implementation of EA. From examples at the IRS, FAA and HHS, the audience will gain new segment and enterprise architecture approaches to push EA programs forward in their own organizations.

Defense Track: Defense Enterprise Architecture - NEW

The Department of Defense (DOD) has a robust enterprise architecture (EA) in need of modernization and standardization. Great strides have been made with the DoD Architecture Framework (DoDAF), but many still have questions about governance, funding models, shared services, data standards, and much more. Sessions in this track provide an update on the DoDAF, how it aligns with other initiatives like “Shared First,” and how IT professionals can better understand these efforts to better achieve their missions.
