That’s a wrap on our October 2023 Australia tour as I had the opportunity to moderate three Enterprise Architect SAP Community Meetings in Sydney on October 24th, Melbourne on October 26th and Brisbane on October 31st.
Appreciate everyone that came out and looking forward to seeing more engagement with Enterprise Architects in the SAP Ecosystem in Australia in 2024.
Special thanks to all of our speakers for sharing their insights and to LeanIX for their participation on all three Australia city stops.
I have included in this post presentations that were delivered in all three cities as well as some bonus features that were mentioned during the sessions.
Loved the engagement of attendees as well as the desire to reconnect for future Enterprise Architect SAP Community Meetings in Australia in 2024.
Remember to …
Join the SAP Community Enterprise Architecture Group:
Now is the time to move to the cloud, and new offerings from SAP maximize the benefits of doing so. This session is intended to inform about what SAP is doing to address and meet the business demands of technology, sustainability, and AI in cloud deployments.
You will hear about the Key attributes of our cloud strategy and understand how SAP is supporting our customers to define and realise their strategic goals.
An Enterprise Architect’s Guide to SAP Business Technology Platform
The shift to the cloud and pace of technological change is forcing us all to rethink how we approach software development and delivery. Couple that with the technical debt “sins of the past” and we need to find a better way to embrace change, operate at pace, yet still protect the integrity and stability of our core systems. With SAP’s clean-core strategy, SAP BTP’s side-by-side development architecture, and our Future Ready Engagement model, we can help you understand how to make your business Future Ready with SAP BTP.
Here are a few key takeaways from SAP’s Jason Bell
“The move to BTP should not be an afterthought – embrace BTP now so you drive your Future Ready Enterprise with BTP rather than becoming a “reactive” enterprise.”
“Our “Future Ready” engagement model has BTP maturity at its core so you can understand your current and future state BTP maturity, and most importantly build a roadmap to reach that target state.”
The AI-powered Enterprise Architecture: Redefining the Discipline's Future
Generative pre-trained transformers like ChatGPT and other AI bots have the potential to revolutionize industries and deliver unprecedented value to businesses. Enterprise Architecture (EA), despite being rooted in human interaction and intricate models, is no exception.
Join experts from LeanIX and BCG for an interactive discussion on how AI can empower enterprise architects already today and in the future. We’ll discuss critical topics at the intersection of AI and EA, and demonstrate the first available AI Assistant from an EA vendor.
This session will explore:
- AI and EA: What can already be leveraged today
- How the role of the Enterprise Architect will be AI-augmented in the future
- What to look for in upcoming AI legislation acts
- Exclusive LeanIX AI Assistant demo
Speaker: William El Kaim, IT Architecture Director, Boston Consulting Group
