Darren Yeo

Director- Enterprise and Solution Architecture Foxtel

Conference Day One: 20 April 2021

11:10 AM Evaluating Critical Concepts To Retain And Translate From Traditional Frameworks Into Modern Architecture

Only a small percentage of Enterprise Architecture frameworks are currently used on a practical day-to-day basis. With usage at an all time low, our panel of Chief Architects will discuss whether the idea of a an EA framework needs to be dropped or evolved, and provide next-step solutions to move past this central issue:


  • Do Enterprise Architects need a Framework, or are there new undervalued approaches?
  • How can traditional frameworks stand up in current and future operating environments?
  • How do we adapt the likes of TOGAF to the requirements of Agile Business?
  • Which supplementary processes offer added flexibility and practical benefits?

1:10 PM How Foxtel Is Leveraging EA To Disrupt Products, Speed-Up Service, And Remain Competitive

With the shift in industry towards nimble online services, business becomes faster and EA needs to keep up and stay ahead. Foxtel has speedily transformed their EA function to produce a nontraditional team that is execution-oriented rather than framework and roadmap centric. Now the goal is to translate plans into real work faster, and Darren has been trialing new operating model without losing intention of governance. In this session:


  • Long term plus short term planning to look 12-18 months ahead with awareness of quick technology changes.
  • Share constructively: setting up nimble teams and engineering at a platform level.
  • Embedding new skill sets to drive the company ahead through a confluence of soft skills, mechanical skills, and ability to be open minded for pragmatic solutions.
  • Peer to peer review forums with stakeholders to capture feedback and assess whether they are adopting solutions put forwards, the quality of work, and measure team performance.
