Committee Leaders

B&EA committee kicks off its thought leadership series with a discussion of the role architecture will play in making cloud computing successful. In this series, we will look into the impact of cloud computing on the static (infrastructure) and dynamic (processes) components of an organization.

While cloud computing will simplify infrastructure architecture for most organizations, it may also expose the weaknesses in business and enterprise architecture. During this series, the B&EA committee will highlight how the cloud computing platform connects its own components internally, and how it should align itself with the strategic objectives of the organization for achieving maximum efficacy and prosperity.

With the focus on business and technology leaders, B&EA committee is planning the following events in the coming months:
