Presentation: "Where's Captain Kirk? Charting a Course Through Enterprise Architecture - Part I"

Track: Enterprise Architecture - Day 2 / Time: Tuesday 14:40 - 15:30 / Location: Lille Sal

Is it just an apology for legacy software and spaghetti IT or is it a meaningful way of describing software systems in particular business contexts? What considerations make a difference when it comes to developing within an enterprise context? What technologies and practices help or hinder?

In these two sessions, we'll wade into the shallows with Kevlin Henney and into the depths with a number of invited speakers; Eva Andreasson, Ola Bini and Randy Shoup.
