PLENARY KEYNOTE: What Do EPM, PPM and BPM Have in Common? Change!
Ashley Braganza, Professor of Organizational Transformation, Brunel Business School

In the course of this keynote presentation Ashley will be challenging some tried and tested, taken-for-granted models of change that you may well believe to be true. You may think – why bother? The reason is that many of the assumptions about change are adversely affecting the very programs and projects you are committed to. This keynote provides you with an opportunity to clear out many of the misconceptions about change, how it is implemented and what you can do going forward. Ashley will provide practical examples and case studies to illustrate the issues leaders face during EPM, PPM or BPM initiatives and how they have overcome these.
  • Recognise change management methods that are outdated
  • Understand the impact change issues have on your ability to deliver your initiatives
  • Incorporate fresh thinking into your initiative

Architecting a €1bn Megahospital
Preben Matzen, Enterprise Architect, New University Hospital Odense
John Gøtze, Director, Center of Excellence, QualiWare

This session will discuss how to use EA in order to secure a coherent architecture for clinical logistics, service logistics and booking in a brand new hospital building project (greenfield). This case-based story presents how to deal with digital business architecture in a highly complex megaproject.

The Danish government decided in 2008 to spend 10 billion Euros on 16 new hospital construction projects. In Odense, the total budget is 1.3 billion Euros. The hospital’s approximately 220.000 m2 will be ready in 2022.

A core vision is to build the digital hospital: “Digital solutions at New OUH will be for all, to all, between all, everywhere – always”. One strategic focus area is a coherent and semi-automated logistics system, where clinical logistics, service logistics and planning/scheduling (the logistics complex) are the central but interdependent elements. The new logistics solution will help the hospital cope with fewer beds, be more efficient and increase quality overall. A real time location system (RTLS) has been acquired, so it is possible to track mobile equipment, beds, trolleys, patients and personnel.

TOGAF was chosen as a solutions framework. TOGAF has proven itself as a reliable framework in order to map the business architecture of the future and select and design appropriate information system architecture and technology architecture. ArchiMate was used unreligiously in a mix with other modelling standards.

The First 365 Days:  What Can You Achieve with a New Architecture Team?
Martin Sykes, Head of Architecture and Design, Cambridge Assessment
Simon King, Solution Architect, Cambridge Assessment

Martin joined Cambridge Assessment in April 2015 with a remit to build an architecture function. This is a significant period of change, with a portfolio of projects that touch every part of the organisation. For many reasons they were starting at ground zero, no architects and a lot to do in a very short time. Martin took the experience from nearly 20 years of doing IT architecture and challenged everything to build a function fit for purpose. Most of this you won’t find in the guides to architecture created for a simpler world where you can gather all the inputs, know all the options and define a clear future state.

Martin has been keeping a diary and an archive so they have real data to compare the intent with the reality of what can be done. They have introduced Kanban as a way to manage architecture resources, storyboards to engage the organisation, and an education programme to develop internal talent. In this session Martin and Simon will tell the story of our journey and how a modern architecture team works in a mid-sized organisation.

How Gazprom Marketing & Trading Created its Business Architecture Model
Andrew Pincott, Director Business Capability, Gazprom Marketing & Trading

GM&T created its business architecture model in 2012 and has been actively using it to support process and change initiatives since then.  At previous conferences and networking events, Andrew has found there is a misconception about the time it can take to create a high level model that is of use to the business.  Delegates will learn:
  • How GM&T produced a useful model in as little as four months with limited resources
  • How they engaged stakeholders from across the business to ensure their model was complete, correct and useful
  • How GM&T used this model to identify process improvement projects without any fancy IT software (they have since implemented a BPM system to continue our work)

Applying Business Outcomes to EA and the PMO
Mike Daley, Chief Architect, PageGroup
Morten Stender, Director, byBrick Management

PageGroup needed a new take on Enterprise Architecture, but bottom-up EA via traditional frameworks was a no-go. They decided to change the approach for creating alignment between planning IT and building IT. Traditional EA is often abstract, almost irrelevant and makes plans that hardly becomes reality, whereas the PMO builds projects that were better not realised. The synergies, however, on aligning the perspectives in a bimodal model were huge to become relevant and realised. PageGroup has radically changed the how to deliver IT with a fresh new methodology and a strategic take on implementing plans for IT. In this way, PageGroup focuses on evolving EA to provide relevant and urgent decision support for business outcomes.

Successful Enterprise Architecture in a Digital World: Surfing the Wave of Digital Transformation
David Hunt, Head of Digital Banking, Enterprise Blueprints

Enterprise Architecture must evolve to support the major transformation that organisations need to make if they are to thrive in the face of the digital challenge.

EA practices are beginning to find themselves increasingly marginalized within their organisations as they struggle to respond to demands for digital transformation in a timely manner.  How can an EA practice carry out strategic planning, create systems roadmaps and govern the overall strategic direction for an organization’s IT when we have high rates of technology churn and uncertainty about which business models and strategies will ultimately allow the organisation to thrive in a digital world?   This presentation will include:

  • Practical examples of new techniques we have used e.g. how EA can sit alongside DevOps and Agile development while still providing strategic oversight
  • Techniques for modelling how systems evolve over time
  • The changing nature of the EA’s role and skills in a digital world

Why We Moved EA Out of IT
Mustafa Dulgerler, Senior Enterprise Architect, National Bank of Abu Dhabi

In this session Mustafa will discuss the benefits of having EA as a business function and not an IT function. In this model, artifacts are designed around corporate objectives, more strategy driven, customer centric; rather than only focusing on enterprise wide policies and system standardization. There are a number of financial institutions testing this model as the reflection on P&L is immediate and visible.

Gaining Commitment to a Process-centric Business Model: A Panel Discussion
Moderator: Sasha Aganova, Managing Partner, Process Renewal Group
Panellists:
Andrew Pincott, Director Business Capability, Gazprom Marketing & Trading
Halina Pomykała, Head of Process Management, Orange Poland
Neal Oswald, Co-Founder, Wanilah Advisors Inc.

The marketplace continues to remind us of the essential need for organizations to be sharply focussed on the customer, anticipating and meeting their ever changing needs and providing the best experience possible while doing so. Many management experts have naturally concluded that this means end-to end business processes must become seamless and holistically managed as enterprise assets. The implications are that a new management system is essential; one that subordinates functional ways of managing the day to day business and governing its investment choices. Those who have made the management paradigm switch did so for good reasons and are now realizing the results.

This panel session will address the difficulties in making such a change in the organization's leadership thinking and tackle how this essential capability can be adopted in an enterprise. The panelists will be comprised of operational executives that have already made the decision to manage horizontally and global experts in the management models required to do so.

  • What is a horizontal management system?
  • Why is it so hard to escape the gravity of hierarchy and functional management?
  • What are some examples of success?
  • What are the arguments that convinced the panelist to take the decision to change?
  • How can you make the case in your organization?

Modelling with Business Process Patterns
Peter Hilton, Signavio

As BPM practitioners, we're used to modelling with low-level workflow patterns, such as tasks that occur in sequence, in parallel, or optionally. While notations like BPMN 2.0 let us express low-level process structure, we prefer to discuss real business process models in larger chunks. Replacing technical details with business-level concepts improves our communication.

This presentation introduces a catalogue of business process patterns, such as Management Approval, Consultation and Document Distribution. The goal of this presentation is to inspire attendees to enrich their process modelling vocabulary so that process analysts and business operations can use a shared language. The benefit of this practical technique is clearer communication.

Avoiding the Bimodal Disaster: New Life For EA
Jason Bloomberg, President, Intellyx

As enterprises around the world struggle with their digital transformation efforts, many are finding that innovative digital teams are moving much faster than their hidebound IT organizations. Rather than struggling to convince traditional IT to get with the digital program, executives are taking advice from IT research firm Gartner, and encouraging existing IT to continue in their desultory ways.

However, many CIOs are realizing the dangers of following Gartner’s advice. The central challenge with bimodal IT is that it encourages IT management to shift their transformation efforts away from 'slow' IT to 'fast' digital efforts.

Such bimodality is a recipe for disaster, as transformation efforts must be end-to-end. If IT governance remains buried in 'slow' IT, then 'fast' digital risks compliance breaches, security vulnerabilities and worse.

To help bimodal enterprises avoid such a fate, enterprises require professionals with an end-to-end view of the organization -- experts who understand the organizational, technological, information, and process challenges that digital transformation efforts must surmount. Who better than the Enterprise Architects to lead their organizations out of the bimodal quagmire?

Attendees of this session will:

  • Gain an understanding of the bimodal pattern in today's enterprises and why Gartner's advice is so dangerous
  • Learn how business transformation impacts both 'fast' digital efforts as well as 'slow' IT organizations
  • Understand how Enterprise Architects can be instrumental in helping their organizations avoid bimodal pitfalls and succeed with their digital transformation efforts

Outcome Driven Architecture
John Slater, Senior Manager Group Retail Strategy, Nationwide
Mike Clark, Business Designer and Digital Technologist, Cohesion 360

Historically organisations have struggled to strike the balance between delivering at pace and building a sustainable architecture. In most cases this results in either a solution that can't be scaled or one that goes over budget, delivers late and fails to meet the desired customer and business outcomes. Using a traceable outcome driven approach to connect the business goals to the machinery of the organisation and following MVP (minimal viable product) and MVA (minimal viable architecture) principles, enabled Nationwide to co-create new features with customers and colleagues, test their impact against a consistent group of value measures and iterate, pivot or scale & roll-out at pace, whilst still building a cohesive architecture.

One of the main challenges that Enterprise Architects face is to be seen as being relevant in any Enterprise Transformation Programme.  The irony is that one of the core disciplines that Enterprise Architects practice it to create a common language across an Enterprise - yet so often the term "Enterprise Architecture" is misunderstood.

With a real-life case study from VISA Europe, Michael and Lorne will dig into some of the challenges that Enterprise Architects have in becoming relevant to the organisations that they serve and come up with some alternative terms that might better fit when selling the relevance of EA to the board.

Using Processes as Architectural Lego® 
Andrea de Stefano, Head of BPM and Integration, NTT DATA

There is an emerging market trend in Italy that shows a growing use of BPM platforms to replace the usually software-specific needs addressed, for instance with CRM solutions, TTS systems, etc..... along with custom (tailored) solutions.

The time to market needed to follow commercial offers and the related processes requires a more productive approach based on high reuse and flexibility.

Client are then really interested in understanding how they can move from a vertical architecture to a new process centric approach to help them improve governance, flexibility, usability, and time to market.

The approach discussed in this session will highlight the advantages of using each process as a Lego block with the idea of composing them to build up complex process centric architecture to fulfil customer needs.

Driving Business Consolidation and Software Creation with Business
Michael Lenzen, Head of Bonding IT, Atradius Credit Insurance N.V.

Next to other financial services, Atradius provides companies a wide range of bonding products. A bond protects the beneficiary if the supplier fails to meet the agreed performance level.

Running business in a rather autonomous country oriented organization throughout Europe for years has resulted in distinctive ways of working on individual application systems.

Atradius has chosen a Business Process driven approach to address an increasing demand for consistent services for international customers across Europe, a larger flexibility and an improved user experience.  

This session explains how BPM was engaged to identify commonalities among countries’ ways of working as well as peculiarities of the various markets.  How it was used to align the business procedures and to drive the creation of a single common application shared across all countries:  As common as possible as different as necessary.

PLENARY KEYNOTE: Engaging and Collaborating (or Whose Moment Is It Anyway?)
Neil Mullarkey, Comedian and Actor    

What can we learn from improvised theatre? Plenty. The roots of "Improv" are in Chicago in the 1920's. Viola Spolin, a social worker, was working with inner city children to enhance their communication skills. This led her son to create Second City Theatre in the 1950's, from which so many talented writers, performers and directors have graduated - not least Dan Aykroyd, Steve Carell, Tina Fey and Mike Myers. 

Improv is about listening, taking on board what others say, then using that as a springboard for your response, teamwork, coping with uncertainty, thinking on your feet, waiting for the best idea to emerge (wherever it came from), and, um, having fun. EA and BPM professionals need to engage with the business, assert themselves, and co-create innovative solutions. Neil Mullarkey's unique, high energy, interactive style will guarantee that you will both laugh and learn.  You will Learn:

  • The key skills of improv theatre
  • How not to be stuck for words ever again
  • How to engage and influence people
