Enterprise Architecture 2020 is returning to Melbourne this 14 - 16 September 2020! View the Official Guide to see what we have planned for you.

Enterprise Architects are no longer alone in driving Digital Transformation. The challenge for EA is to realign to business and customer needs before it is forgotten by stakeholders, and other business counterparts overtake the function in driving organisational change across technology and people.

Against this backdrop, whilst the future of frameworks and traditional IT approaches may seem bleak in the face of aspiring agile organisations, Enterprise Architects are rallying to revise value propositions and adapt approaches to emerge driving new levels of engagement: successfully.

Designing Event-Driven Systems

Designing Event-Driven Systems

With compliments from our Event Sponsor Confluent, enjoy this 160+page eBook authored by Ben Stopford on 'Designing Event-Driven Systems'

This book looks quite specifically at the application of Apache Kafka to this problem.

  • In Part I we introduce streaming and take a look at how Kafka works.
  • Part II focuses on the patterns and techniques needed to build event-driven programs: Event Sourcing, Event Collaboration, CQRS, and more.
  • Part III takes these ideas a step further, applying them in the context of multiteam systems, including microservices and SOA, with a focus on event streams as a source of truth and the aforementioned idea that both systems and companies can be reimagined as a database turned inside out.
  • In the final part, we take a slightly more practical focus, building a small streaming system using Kafka Streams (and KSQL).

Industry Report: Enterprise Architecture in the Age of Covid-19

Industry Report: Enterprise Architecture in the Age of Covid-19

EA is all about triaging data points and making important decisions.

But when the business no longer has time to think about future state, blueprints and roadmaps a.k.a. the key bits an enterprise architect spends their efforts on, how does the enterprise architecture team demonstrate its value to the business?

In March 2020, our Enterprise Architecture team partnered with leaders across Australia & New Zealand to evaluate the state of the EA capability post-outbreak.

The 22-page report delves into tough questions of leading enterprise architects around how the virus has impacted their organizations; what it means for the architecture team,  most interestingly, how they can use this as an opportunity to re-invent traditional enterprise architecture as we know it.
