Timing Architectural Decisions By Olaf Zimmermann

Exciting times for IT architects: agile practices and domain-driven design, cloud nativity and Web APIs, generative AI and DevOps automation and many other trending topics keep on changing the context of our work. The main responsibilities and essence of our role remain, though: serving as advocates of development teams, coaches and communicators, technical risk managers, and, last but certainly not least, decision makers.

This talk introduces old and new Architectural Decision (AD) making practices such as AD Records (ADRs), AD definitions of ready and done, and Most Responsible Moment (MRM). It also identifies criteria for architectural significance and ADR (anti-)patterns.
The talk concludes with a proposal of a maturity model for AD management and a first look on ongoing research to position ethical values such as sustainability as special types of non-functional requirements.

Take aways:
– Find out when to best make which type of decision (MRM).
– Learn how to make and document ADs effectively, efficiently, and responsibly.
– Identify opportunities to improve existing architecture practices

Rollen – Gränssnittet mellan människa och organisation By Sandahls Partners, Frida Skog, Christina Lihagen

I en miljö med hög förändringstakt är gränssnittet (rollen) en avgörande del för människan. Det avgör om vår energi bidrar till hög prestation, kreativitet och hållbarhet.

Vi på Sandahls fokuserar på våra partners mål och leverans. Vi använder vår gedigna kunskap och erfarenhet om hur människor fungerar i organisation för att våra partners ska kunna nå, eller till och med överträffa, sina mål. Vi tränar ledare och medarbetar på att ta roll för att möjliggöra samarbete och utveckling i komplexa sammanhang. Sandahl Partners bygger sina träningar på en gedigen forskningsgrund och fyrtio års erfarenhet av organisationer och organiserande.

What architects talk about after midnight By Harald WesenbergDigital innovator

As an architect your role is to manage the evolving complexity of your system to ensure that they create value for your end users today, but even more importantly, tomorrow. To achieve this, we, as architects, have developed tools and practices that help us in our tasks. But sometimes I wonder, is this enough? Isn’t there more to being an architect? How do we think about systems? How do we deal with increasing complexity? How do we architect in an ever evolving technological landscape where trends and technologies emerge and disappear at the blink of an eye? Join Harald on a journey through 25+ years of software development and architecting experience where we will look at some of the topics architects talk about in the bar after midnight for dealing with the eternal dilemmas of architecting.

Surviving the hybrid work rhythm By Darja SmiteProfessor of Software Enginering, Blekinge Institute of Technology.

The COVID-19 pandemic dramatically altered the landscape of work, pushing knowledge workers into a predominantly remote environment and establishing a new, enduring hybrid work model. This shift has transformed workplace flexibility from a privilege to an essential right, greatly influencing personal well-being and productivity. However, the transition to hybrid work rhythm is not without its challenges. Increased remote working can potentially disrupt workflows, reduce overall efficiency, complicate onboarding processes, and fragment knowledge networks and awareness of what is going on across work units. Based on the insights from studying multiple organisations in Sweden and Norway, this talk will critically examine the dual nature of remote working—highlighting both the increased autonomy for individuals and the resultant challenges faced by software architects. Special attention will be given to effective strategies that reconcile individual flexibility with the need for team cohesion and understanding ”the big picture”. Join us to learn how to create a well-functioning hybrid rhythm that supports both personal well-being and robust group orientation

// WORKSHOP // Ta din roll på jobbet By Sandahls Partners, Frida Skog, Christina Lihagen

Under den här workshopen får du möjlighet att jobba med ditt gränssnitt, tydliggöra och identifiera den samt lära dig om konsekvenserna av att leva med tydlighet versus otydlighet. Arbetet kommer att involvera dig att göra en analys av ditt nuläge samt ringa eventuella nästa steg.

Vi på Sandahls fokuserar på våra partners mål och leverans. Vi använder vår gedigna kunskap och erfarenhet om hur människor fungerar i organisation för att våra partners ska kunna nå, eller till och med överträffa, sina mål.

// WORKSHOP // How Enterprise Architects can increase their impact on the enterprise By Wolfgang Goebl, Helgi Björgvinsson

You are working very hard as an Enterprise Architect, but does it really make a difference?

Enterprise Architecture Management has been around for four decades now. Many promises were made by this discipline, yet today most enterprises still don’t have intentionally designed business and IT architectures. Enterprise Architects usually have some impact on IT application landscapes, but only a very limited impact on the business part of enterprise architectures.

In this workshop we will present game-changing patterns and tools based on the EDGY language. We discuss how they could help in your concrete cases with your concrete challenges.

You will learn how to:

● deal with common obstacles in the Enterprise Architecture practice;
● produce creations that people love to co-create;
● communicate and deal with corporate politics to build the relationships you need for collaborative design

Designing Three Rs of Digital Business Ecosystems: Roles, Responsibilities, and Resilience By Jelena Zdravkovic Professor and Head of Computer and Systems Sciences, Stockholm University.

Digital Business Ecosystem implies several distinctive features including the heterogeneity of involved actors, their interdependence in the exchange of resources, the dynamic nature of their relationships, and the need for self-organization. To successfully design and develop such ecosystems, it is essential to clearly define the business scope, delineate the roles and responsibilities of each participating company, organization and individual, map out their interactions and dependencies, and leverage a range of underlying technologies and diverse data. Furthermore, this process must include an assessment of the ecosystem’s resilience, gauging its ability to achieve its objectives in the face of challenges. This involves identifying and modeling resilience indicators to ensure the ecosystem’s capacity to adapt and thrive under changing conditions.

7 dilemmas of setting up an Enterprise Architecture function By Mats Rygaard

Few IT disciplines are associated to so many questions about its value as Enterprise Architecture; yet, almost every mid- to large-size company has an EA practice. But no matter how many times you start an ”Enterprise Architecture 2.0” project to change the focus, people or organization to improve your EA practice, the end result is often the same: stakeholders do not feel that they’re getting as much out of the practice as they wish they did. But what exactlydo they wish for, and what are the most common reasons for discontent? And, even more importantly, what can we do about it?

In this session, we walk through the building blocks of an EA operating model and discuss 7 universal dilemmas that we all face when setting up or restructuring an EA practice. Making conscious choices for each dilemma creates far better conditions to meet stakeholder expectations that otherwise often stay implicit throughout the design. We’ll go through the ifs and buts of each dilemma, how to quickly position oneself on each dilemma spectrum, and how these dilemmas can inform the design of a more successful EA practice.
