I was already planning to attend the Open Group Conference in Toronto next week to catch up on what’s happening in the enterprise architecture space, and now I’ve been invited to join Dana Gardner’s panel on Monday morning, which will also be recorded as a podcast. The panel is on architecture’s scope extending beyond the enterprise, bringing together elements of EA, SOA and cloud computing. Also on the panel will be John Gotze, president of the Associate of Enterprise Architects, and Tim Westbrock from EAdirections. There are big aspects of business process to this, specifically when you start orchestrating processes that span the enterprise’s boundaries, and I hope that we’ll have time to explore that.
I’ll probably be at the conference each day to check out some of the other sessions, and I may stick around for some of the evening events, such as CloudCamp on Wednesday. If you’re there, drop by my session and say hi.
