July Community Meeting

July 17 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm CDT
medtronic, 8200 Coral Sea Street NE
Mounds View, MN 55112 United States
+ Google Map

Join us for our July Twin Cities Business Architecture Forum hosted by our sponsor, Medtronic, on July 17 at 4 p.m. As businesses transform to support the move to "digital," realign focus on information, and seek to drive innovation, IT organizations have an opportunity to act as business partners and demand-shapers. How can an enterprise technology organization position itself to drive to the heart of this model? How are leading strategies developed and executed? What is the critical role business architecture plays in this IT strategy model? Ultimately, do you have a strategy process, or a periodic strategy event? An effective strategy development and execution process can be critical in any organization's ability to adapt to business and market changes. As part of this process, business architecture can be positioned as a critical enabler and 'pulse' monitor across key steps within this lifecycle. In keeping with our "Business Architecture - A New Perspective" theme, we will continue to think about the business architecture mindset; we'll examine the journey and experience of how Business Architecture is integrated into Medtronic's IT Strategy Development & Execution process, as presented by the Medtronic Global IT Chief of Staff, Andrew O'Brien. Register and plan to join us!
