  • Is it possible to measure architecture ROI on project basis? Or is it only applicable on a long term, multiple projects, portfolio basis.

  • Architecture is a powerful tool for CFOs to mitigate risk in long term? Or is it a strategic tool for CEOs for market competitiveness?

  • What are some of the tangible and intangible benefits of architecture?

  • How do we measure architecture benefits such as:
    • Modifiability
    • Risk Mitigation
    • Avoiding Technology Obsolescence

  • How easy to estimate the investments on series of "current", "intermediate" and "target" reference architectures

  • Does ROI calculation is just a value-based approach to implementing enterprise architecture when the team is first being formed. And it may not have a serious long term concerns?

  • How easy to calculate
    • If the current architecture is meaningful and adding value to the organization?
    • How might architecture be modified so that it adds more value to the organization?
    • Readiness of the architecture to support what organization wants to accomplish in the   future

If you thought, these are some of the issues that constitute 3% of your daily stress (based on the assumption that your current IT induced stress level is 3.4%), you may like to listen to some of the key people and how they are working around to address some or most of the issues (discussed above) in the panel discussion.

SunilRemember, several organizations that have been successful with their architecture initiatives have done so without spending much on ROI calculation. They just felt that having a proper structure is fundamental to survival of their burgeoning IT systems and of course survival of organizations as well. Remember the slogan, JUST DO IT …;-).

See you at the conference!
