Editor's Notes

  • Spoke to my friend – IS prog. Mgr in well known Pharma in Cheshire Said I was going to Arc event – Boring! I’m an Arch.! – Boring! OK, what’s the problem? Next slide
  • Architects tend towards…. So what does She want us to be like Next slide
  • So, we get a kicking, have our failings pointed out, get told what we rubbish at.. How does that feel? We’ll it doesn’t have to be like that. Next slide
  • This is a recent headline from WIRED magazine “ in silicon valley, data scientists are the new Tech rock stars” So how do we get a piece of this Kudos? Next slide
  • Well, obviously there’s a model for this! As Architects we need to be about the Information to enable the Business to meet it’s Strategic goals Technology is important but we need to make that invisible to the business. But, we need to work with the business to ensure all aspects of the capability are understood, all gaps are addressed (not just the Tech ones) and We deliver against one single business change plan Next slide
  • In summary, Our focus should be to be passionate about the business change and Curious about the technology In order for the business and colleagues to want us to work with them And Deliver business results Next slide
  • I leave you with one thought, Once described as the most beautiful woman in the world and also Co-inventor… Some nerds are real stars Questions?
