A Digital disruption presentation delivered as a webinar to the Open Group by Hugh Evans - CEO of Enterprise Architects.
The world is undergoing unprecedented change, driven largely by developments in digital technologies.
Organizations must now consider how to invent new business models as well as new products and services, and they must hone their transformational capabilities to rapidly execute on these plans.
In the recently published Hype Cycle for Enterprise Architecture 2013 Gartner places disruptive forces at the center of the emerging EA mandate:
"Enterprise Architecture (EA) is a discipline for proactively and holistically leading enterprise responses to disruptive forces by identifying and analyzing the execution of change toward desired business vision and outcomes."
"EA practitioners have the opportunity to take a quantum leap toward not only becoming integral to the business, but also leading business change."

Today, businesses are being forced to come to terms with their vulnerability and opportunities when it comes to disruptive innovation. Enterprise Architecture, by leveraging its emergent business architecture capabilities and its traditional technology and innovation focus, has the opportunity to fill a key void, aiding businesses to win in this new world.
This webinar will explore how EA can drive an organization’s disruptive agenda.
