This talk will discuss how a modern approach to Enterprise Architecture is crucial to adding value in a world of optimising for Better Value Sooner Safer Happier.
  • How can radical improvements to flow, quality and team engagement transcend the efforts of individual teams and components?
  • How do enterprise application landscapes achieve evolutionary revolution, while living fossils like mainframes and monolithic databases are providing crucial business functionality?
  • How can enterprise architects go beyond their traditional roles and responsibilities of governance and review, and focus on helping organisations achieve the continuous improvement through rapid delivery and feedback, experimentation and learning
Simon Rohrer, Head of Enterprise Architecture and Co-Lead of Ways of Working at Saxo Bank has spent 27 years of his career combining a passion for modern ways of working with both hands on development and senior roles in enterprise architecture and strategy.

Here, he’ll share some of his learnings over the last few years, at Barclays in London (across the entire 35,000 person tech organisation) and latterly at Saxo Bank in Copenhagen (a smaller more nimble 1,000 person tech organisation), where he has been responsible for transforming approaches to Enterprise Architecture by incorporating concepts from eXtreme Programming, Continuous Delivery, Systems Thinking, Team Topologies, Project to Product and more - all to achieve practical business value while delivering longer term architecture and organisation transformation.

Simon has contributed a chapter on this topic and the broader topic of technical excellence to Jonathan Smart’s forthcoming IT Revolution Press book, Sooner Safer Happier
