2-day business architecture innovation sUMMIT - March 20 - 21, 2018

As the business architecture discipline has matured, the business community has seen the evolution in practitioner experience and practice expansion from an industry and a global perspective. With the ongoing adoption of vertical industry reference models, integration with the business community, case study dissemination, standards alignment, and executive buy-in, organizations are finding they can no longer sit on the sidelines when it comes to business architecture. Now past its formative years, business architecture is being applied to an array of business scenarios that include innovation, business design, digital transformation, customer experience, and investment and resource optimization. With a focus on sharing and promoting business architecture efforts and experiences, the Business Architecture Guild® and Object Management Group® (OMG®) are pleased to present the sixth annual Business Architecture Innovation Summit in Reston, VA on March 20-21, 2018. This premier event features business practitioners and experts from around the world who will share a range of experiences from a cross-section of industries such as financial services, insurance, healthcare, manufacturing, transportation, software, retail, and government.

Targeted discussion topics include:
  • Business Architecture and Customer Experience
  • Business-driven Digital Transformation
  • Strategy Definition through Solution Deployment
  • Industry Reference Models for Business Architecture
  • Business Architecture Standards, Competencies, and Roles
  • Business Architecture Practice Development and Governance
  • Business-Driven, IT Architecture Transformation
  • Business Architecture Enabled Risk and Crisis Management
  • Industry Case Studies from Governance through Value Delivery


For those new to the discipline, consider attending the Business Architecture Primer being offered on Monday afternoon, March 19, prior to the Summit.
