09:00 AM - 09:30 AMIntroduction By Johanna Värild & Barry O'ReillyModeratorer

For many years we’ve been telling the world about digital transformation, about disruption, about how to cope with and manage change. Now in 2020 we find ourselves in the midst of the most disruptive event of the last 70 years. In all of this, we have a duty to take a step back and ask what disruption means for architects and architecture. While we’ve been telling the rest of the world about disruption, we’ve ignored its impact on ourselves. Can architecture possibly remain the same, with the same old frameworks and ideas that have survived since the late 1960’s?

09:30 AM - 10:30 AMKeynote: Complex Adaptive Systems By Dave Snowden Founder and CSO of Cognitive Edge & Director of the Cynefin Centre

Dave Snowden divides his time between two roles: founder Chief Scientific Officer of Cognitive Edge and the founder and Director of the Centre for Applied Complexity at the University of Wales. His work is international in nature and covers government and industry looking at complex issues relating to strategy, organisational decision making and decision making. He has pioneered a science based approach to organisations drawing on anthropology, neuroscience and complex adaptive systems theory. He is a popular and passionate keynote speaker on a range of subjects, and is well known for his pragmatic cynicism and iconoclastic style.

11:15 AM - 12:00 PMResiduality Theory By Barry O’Reilly Founder of Black Tulip Technology and creator of ”Antifragile System Design"

Software is a young industry with high failure rates and few empirically established practices. The engineering that we describe as Software Architecture currently lacks a scientific basis. Residuality Theory is applied complexity science, and presents a new way to look at how we treat componentization and risk in the process of software design and links research to pragmatic engineering techniques. This session presents an introduction to an exciting, new, and potentially revolutionary topic.

01:00 PM - 01:45 PMSecurity (in Swedish) By Jan Olsson Detective & operations developer

Ett enda ögonblicks felbedömning blir totalkatastrof för företagen. Nästan alla sorters high tech crimes injiceras genom det mest banala analoga misstaget som existerar nämligen phishing. Varför-hur-skyddsmöjligheter likväl som case baserade exempel presenteras i ett högt tempo men också annat.

01:50 PM - 02:35 PMServerless Architecture By Gunnar GroschAWS Serverless Hero

Serverless allows you to build and run applications and services without thinking about servers, and it promises automatic and flexible scaling as well as to provide built-in availability and fault tolerance. Is there even a need for skilled architects with this is place? Let’s dive into the world of serverless architecture and look at serverless patterns and practices, common weaknesses, and how we work to make our serverless applications more robust and reliable.

03:00 PM - 03:45 PMCloud @ HM By Jakob Knutson Cloud Architect at @HM

How do we enable cloud transformation within the enterprise? From strategy to execution – Listen to how H&M mobilized their cloud transformation to enable speed and innovation. How modern ways of working and DevOps created a customer obsessed value driven new focus and organization powered by people, data and tech.

Top highlights:

  • Learn H&Ms experiences from the real world
  • Enterprise adoption of cloud
  • Enabling the organization maturity in Cloud, DevOps and Agile
04:00 PM - 05:00 PMEmma Frans (in Swedish) By Emma FransDoktor i epidemiologi, forskare vid Karolinska Institutet & vetenskapsskribent i SvD

Vi lever i en digital tidsålder där information och desinformation flödar snabbare än någonsin, och med en pandemi följer också en infodemi. Emma Frans hjälper er att förstå hur ni skiljer sanningen från lögn och hur man bör tänka när inte ens experterna är överens.

12:00 PM - 01:00 PMWhat the VUCA? Digital Responses to COVID-19 By Gar Mac Críostaan IASA certified architect and Product Lead for the COVID Tracker App in the Health Service Executive (HSE) in Ireland

COVID-19 hit; country by country the world ground to a halt. We all became familiar with the headline stats, epidemiology became an interesting new profession. The R-number and contact tracing entered our lexicon as things we all knew about. One good if it’s low, the other something we needed to be able to do. March 21st Singapore released the TraceTogether app a Bluetooth, proximity-based digital contact tracing app. Many other countries had already started on similar journeys to build a system that could use technology to speed up and solve the problem of warning people when they became close contacts. The journey started on our national patron saints day March 17th – after 100 days (100 days in COVID time approximates to 3 years in the old world) an app was born (110 days there was a long labour).

This is the story of all the apps born or buried during COVID-19 crisis to-date. It’s a story of rapid decision making, global collaboration, intense external scrutiny and hopefully redemption.

01:30 PM - 02:15 PMMorgondagens risker med artificiell intelligens (in Swedish) By Åsa Schwarz Författare, säkerhetskrönikör och IT-säkerhetskonsult

Åsa berättar om morgondagens risker med artificiell intelligens med exempel från verkligheten och fiktion. Hon går igenom åtgärder som kan göras för att minska dessa, både för vårt samhälle men också i specifika projekt.

02:20 PM - 03:05 PMAgile architecture By Thijmen de GooijerIT architect at the Swedish Local Government Debt Office

The Swedish Local Government Debt Office began implementing its digital strategy two years ago. It had few modern practices in place. Now the team consistently delivers value increments, and everyone is an architect. Our philosophy is ‘just enough’. Just enough Agile for continuous learning. Just enough architecture to manage risk and technical debt. Just enough DevOps to remove friction. We learned to take small steps towards mature practice. Our customers already use new services and did not wait in vain for a failed multi-million eurobig bang. The secret is to take small steps, implementing only the architecture practices that the organization and the team are ready for.

Join me for a retrospective on an architect’s agile journey and learn how to entrust your team with the architecture.

03:05 PM - 04:05 PMSituation Normal, Everything Must Change By Simon Wardley Researcher for the Leading Edge Forum

We live in a competitive world. That competition forces change. It has always forced change. Change is normal. The question is not whether our organizations will change, that’s a given, but can we see this change before it hits us, do we know where we’re heading or are we simply floating aimlessly being carried by a river? It certainly feels that way sometimes.

To answer the question, we need to understand our landscape, the economic forces at play, the context we operate within and our situational awareness of this. Can we navigate the waters, can we see a storm coming or are we being battered by rocks because we refuse to look?

04:30 PM - 05:30 PMPanel Discussion the Future of Architecture

Join our panel for a free form discussion on the future of architecture.

05:30 PM - 06:30 PMAudience response: The future of architecture.

This is ITARC and there will be many opinions and perspectives in the room. This session gives the audience a chance to ask questions of the panel, present ideas that the panel might have missed, and conclude the event with the most important factor in the future of architecture: the architects!

09:00 AM - 12:00 PMAntifragile: Designing the Systems of the Future By Barry O’ReillyFounder of Black Tulip Technology and creator of ”Antifragile System Design"

Based loosely on the book ‘Anti-fragile’ by Nicholas Nassim Taleb, we look at how his theories on fragility and the ability to withstand shocks can be interpreted to help us design, produce, and manage better systems that can help us deal not only with failures, but also with rapidly changing markets and expectations in modern software development. The workshop will cover

  • The role of Systems Engineering in architecting modern solutions
  • Understanding volatility as the driver of complexity and as the major input to design
  • Why we need to spend more time on System Behaviour and less time on System Functionality
  • The role of architectural decision making in the resulting behaviour of a System
