09:00 AM - 10:00 AMSpeaking truth to Power By Megan ReitzMA (Cantab), MSc, MRes, PhD

As an architect, you make choices everyday about whether to speak up or stay silent. You choose who to listen to and whose voice to discount. Your teams and your organisations develop ‘conversational habits’ internally and externally, with stakeholders, around what gets said and who gets heard.

These habits have enormous consequences on your capacity to challenge and be challenged and offer and hear different perspectives. Ultimately, what you say and who you hear defines your reputation, your career, your ability to pivot in crisis and is a critical factor in shaping your lasting influence on the physical environment.

Professor Megan Reitz’s research suggests that counter to common perceptions, speaking up is more than a simple question of individual courage; speaking truth to power should be understood as relational and systemic.  Listening up is as important, if not more important, than speaking up. Findings illustrate how those perceived to be powerful are often deaf to the consequences of their power and how it silences others. Inviting others to speak and listening skilfully, proactively encouraging truth speaking and creating a culture of psychological safety is a fundamental leadership task.

In this talk Professor Reitz will explain how to say what needs to be said, and hear what needs to be heard.

10:30 AM - 11:30 AMPhilosophy of architecture By Barry O’Reilly Founder of Black Tulip Technology and creator of ”Residuality Theory"

The argument about what an architect is or isn’t is endless. This talk takes a step back from the old cliches about alignment and whether or not we should code and instead looks at the historical perspective through the wider lens of the philosophy of science. Who are we? Why do we think the way we do? Is it really working out for us?

11:35 AM - 12:15 PMThe five elements of successful industry/academia collaboration By Jan BoschProfessor at Chalmers University of Technology

During the early days of computer science, there was very close collaboration between research, both academic and industrial, and industry practitioners. During the recent decades, however, the two worlds have moved apart and academic research has little impact on industrial practice and visa versa. One example of this is that during the last 30 years or so, not a single major computer science innovation in industry has originated in academia.

The Software Center is a collaboration between 16 companies and five universities with the mission of accelerating the digital transformation of the European software intensive industry and aims to regain close collaboration between industry and academia. During the talk, I will present the collaboration and highlight five elements that are of strategic importance for successful industry/academia collaboration.

01:10 PM - 01:40 PMSäkerhet för IT-arkitekter [SV] By Patrik BjörkmanIT Architect @ Swedish Match

Patrik kommer att prata om vad som har hänt på säkerhetsområdet det senaste året. Vilka utmaningar finns kring ämnet? Hur kan man definiera risk? Vad innebär det att säkerhetsarkitekten alltid ska gå hand i hand med verksamhetsarkitekten?

Häng med Patrik och få insikter kring varför säkerhet är viktigt och vilka konsekvenser säkerhetstänk får för arkitekturen.

01:45 PM - 02:30 PMRedesigning Everything By Alberto Brandolini

EventStorming was born for a physical world.

How did the pandemic change it, how can we leverage collaborative modelling to design and redesign organisations, business processes and software in a remote-first world?

03:00 PM - 03:50 PMBortom konventionell arkitektur – så lyckas ni [SV] By Åsa Norman & Mats JegeboHead of Enterprise Architecture & Co-Founder, WoW Agile AB

2018 startade Handelsbanken om sin agila resa genom att använda ramverket SAFe som grund för sitt agila arbetssätt. Denna transformation pågår just nu och den har krävt en totalomstrukturering av sättet man arbetar med arkitektur och hur arkitekterna arbetar.

Arkitekterna är nu placerade i framsätet av den agila transformationen och har flyttat sig från en dokumenterande och granskande roll till en coachande och ledande roll. Detta visade sig vara en nödvändighet för att kunna genomföra alla nödvändiga förändringar av befintlig arkitektur och anpassa den till de krav som ställs I den nya världen, när man ska arbeta agilt.

Åsa Norman, Chef för Handelsbanken Enterprise Architecture, och Mats Jegebo, kommer att visa hur Handelsbanken introducerar ett nytt sätt att organisera arkitekterna, hur man åstadkommer ett verkligt flöde av affärsnytta, genom att utmana traditionella strukturer, introducera agil målstyrning samt hjälpa arkitekterna att bli ledare, istället för många vanliga modeller som nu är utdaterade.

Du kommer att lära dig hur Handelsbanken organiserar arbetet med sin arkitektur på ett nytt sätt, som ger alla arkitekter tydlig styrning på formen syfte, mål och principer och hjälper dem att se helheten i varje situation och därmed bygga framtidens arkitektur

03:00 PM - 03:50 PMHow to be wrong By Rusell Miles CEO and co-founder of Reliably
Being wrong is often seen as the worst thing that can happen™, especially when you architect, build, and run business-critical applications and services. But the increased velocity of modern software development, plus the increased need for systems to be resilient, reliable, and right has increased the pressure on teams, and in particular architects, exponentially. Never before have software owners had such an opportunity, or the power, to be wrong. We need to get better at being wrong.

Russ Miles, CEO of Reliably, discusses the tools and techniques he uses to turn inevitably being wrong into being successful at being wrong. Being wrong can be turned to your advantage, and Russ shares stories of how this has happened and also the challenges to look out for.

The myth of always being right when you architect, build, and operate software is over. You’re going to be wrong most of the time. Time to get better at being wrong and learn how to turn accidents such as outages into opportunities.

04:00 PM - 05:00 PMTeam Topologies in action: early results from industry By Matthew Skelton co-author of Team Topologies | Head of Consulting at Conflux

In this talk we explore how several different organizations from around the world have begun to adopt the principles and patterns from Team Topologies and how these changes have helped to improve software delivery. We will look at examples from these organizations:

Footasylum gives fashion-focused youth a multi-branded retail experience mixing global sportswear household names with emerging brands and its own stable of in-house labels. Founded in 2005, Footasylum now has 70 stores across the UK and a thriving ecommerce platform, with revenue of £260m per annum and over 2500 employees. Footasylum used Team Topologies patterns to revolutionize their ecommerce platform.

PureGym is Britain’s largest gym chain – the first to gain over 1 million members. As PureGym expanded, so did the need for software to enable their members to book and manage gym sessions. Since 2019, PureGym has re-aligned its teams and team interactions based on Team Topologies patterns, helping to scale the engineering teams and improve flow.

uSwitch / RVU, one of the UK’s leading consumer price comparison websites, has grown a modern platform from scratch, allowing stream-aligned teams to focus on consumers needs, offloading infrastructure provisioning concerns to the platform which also provides cross-cutting services around scalability, security and data management

Wealth Wizards is a UK company making financial advice affordable and accessible to everyone through online tools and apps. The engineering division at Wealth Wizards has used the Team Topologies ideas around team cognitive load to help right-size their teams and align teams to the most important flows of business change.

09:00 AM - 12:00 PM// WORKSHOP // Strategy Execution and Alignment: Powered by Architecture By Whynde Kuehn Founder and Managing Director of S2E Transformation

Business architecture is now increasingly being recognized as a key enabler of strategy execution by organizations, industry associations, and even in academia.  The benefits of helping organizations with effective end-to-end strategy execution and alignment not only bridges a unique and important gap but can also bring new relevance to the entire enterprise architecture team as well as enhance our collaboration.

In this workshop, we will first discuss strategy execution challenges and opportunities.  We will then consider an end-to-end perspective on strategy execution, including architecture’s critical enabling role, along with how various teams and people with different strengths partner across it.  We will work with a few techniques that provide good starting points for architecture to help with strategy translation, alignment from strategy through initiatives, and investment decision-making.  Finally, we will discuss practical ways to move into action and introduce these concepts to organizations.

Participants will take away:

  • A framework for end-to-end strategy execution and how teams connect across it
  • Techniques and tools to help architecture get involved in strategy execution
  • Practical tips on where to start and how to socialize concepts with others

12:25 PM - 01:10 PMBeyond standardized frameworks, the concept of business capability demystifies governance in public sector digitalization [SV] By Malin NordströmPhD Adjunct Senior Lector, Department of information systems and digitalization, Linköping University. Expert Digital Innovation, Swedish Prison and Probation Service

The past fifteen years have been marked by framework driven standardization of governance of digitalization in public organizations. The concept maintenance objects (förvaltningsobjekt) has its theoretical roots in the four-layer architecture but takes as its starting point the current business conducted in an organization. Organization of digitalization using maintenance objects thus inevitably leads to a focus on the prevailing motley digital landscape and counteracts strategy driven by vision.

At the Swedish Prison and Probation Service we therefore decided to put to the test the concept of business capability, but soon discovered a conceptual ambiguity. We describe our work toward creating conceptual clarity by using an actual case from Swedish Prison and Probation Service. This is a work in progress.

[SV] The lecture will be in Swedish, however, for those of you who do not speak Swedish there will be an English-using video made available during the lecture.

01:15 PM - 02:00 PMThe Business Architecture Lens: Today, Tomorrow and Crucial Conversations By Whynde Kuehn Founder and Managing Director of S2E Transformation

Business architecture has been gaining traction and recognition, especially as an enabler of strategy execution and transformation. The discipline has also continued to formalize and advance within organizations, industry associations, and even academia. This talk will first offer a global snapshot of business architecture, including a pulse on how organizations are using the discipline along with recent developments and focus areas. We will then explore some possible futures for how business architecture can make the greatest impact, extrapolating from the trends and indications we are seeing today.  Finally, we will illuminate a few crucial conversations that could help our global architecture community breakthrough in new ways.

01:15 PM - 02:00 PMDigitalisering och människan [SV] By Florence DavaineDigitaliseringsansvarig @ Almega

I takt med att digitaliseringen i samhället sker allt snabbare så ökar även företagens och organisationernas satsningar för att uppnå nästa nivå av digital transformation.

Men vad händer med den mänskliga faktorn och hur påverkar människorna inom organisationerna den utvecklingen?

02:00 PM - 02:45 PMHow to Architect Something Really Big By Clemens Vasters

This talk will give you a behind-the-scenes look into building hyperscale cloud platform services for Azure at Microsoft, using the upcoming Azure Event Hubs Premium event streaming service as an example. Clemens will discuss architectural considerations for single- and multi-tenancy, for shared and isolated resources, will talk about failure modes and failure domains and availability zones and “blast radius”, and many other topics that influence the technical approach for building large services. Expect a conceptual talk from which to take inspiration and ideas, not recipes.

02:00 PM - 02:45 PMDigitaliseringens möjligheter och hot [SV] By Ulrika Thor & Alexandra GrimforsChefsarkitekt på Säkerhetspolisen &Strategichef på Säkerhetspolisen

Digitalisering har näst intill blivit ännu ett uttjatat buzzword – men i och med pandemin och den omställning som många organisationer i vissa fall tvingats in i, kan ingen ifrågasätta dess relevans eller betydelse.
Digitalisering innebär både fantastiska möjligheter men även hot och sårbarheter i nya skepnader.

01:15 PM - 02:00 PMThe Business Architecture Lens: Today, Tomorrow and Crucial Conversations By Whynde Kuehn Founder and Managing Director of S2E Transformation

Business architecture has been gaining traction and recognition, especially as an enabler of strategy execution and transformation. The discipline has also continued to formalize and advance within organizations, industry associations, and even academia. This talk will first offer a global snapshot of business architecture, including a pulse on how organizations are using the discipline along with recent developments and focus areas. We will then explore some possible futures for how business architecture can make the greatest impact, extrapolating from the trends and indications we are seeing today.  Finally, we will illuminate a few crucial conversations that could help our global architecture community breakthrough in new ways.

02:00 PM - 02:45 PMHow to Architect Something Really Big By Clemens Vasters

This talk will give you a behind-the-scenes look into building hyperscale cloud platform services for Azure at Microsoft, using the upcoming Azure Event Hubs Premium event streaming service as an example. Clemens will discuss architectural considerations for single- and multi-tenancy, for shared and isolated resources, will talk about failure modes and failure domains and availability zones and “blast radius”, and many other topics that influence the technical approach for building large services. Expect a conceptual talk from which to take inspiration and ideas, not recipes.
