Why EA Is ImportantMartin Kobza, Managing Director, Erste Group IT SK, Slovakia
Sharing Experience of EA Implementation in SLSP
SLSP as a member of the Erste Group Bank AG implemented in last five years two major IT projects: Euro transformation and NIS – new core banking system. These changes dramatically increased complexity of application landscape and its infrastructure. Budget pressure caused by financial crisis leads bank management to find sustainable savings. On the other hand competition in Slovak banking industry motivates us to be more agile and responsive to business needs.
To address these challenges effectively we started Enterprise Architecture program.
The goal of this presentation is to share our experience of EA implementation: Our challenge

How the Flemish Government Is Using EA to Align Business and IT RoadmapsYves Vanderbeken, Chief Technologist & Enterprise Architect, HP Enterprise Services
How the Flemish Government Is Using EA to Align Business and IT Roadmaps
The Flemish Government recently awarded its main IT contract to HP Enterprise Services. This contract stands for a new delivery model, where the “As A Service” model is the default for all entities going forward. Infrastructure, platform, applications, workplace as a service are the new services that will enable the entities of the government to transform the current estate towards a modern and “always up to date” model, based on private Cloud delivery models. This mode of operation will require an even stronger business - IT interlock and EA approach than today and the Flemish Government has been investing in its EA standardization approach to facilitate the transition and become even more response to changing citizen’s needs and interaction with the government. In this session we will cover the basics off the new “as a service” model and how EA helps provide the right alignment between business and IT departments. Practical examples will be used throughout the session to demonstrate reality and how entities are using a long term EA roadmap and governance approach to delivering better services faster to its citizens.

The Concept of Czech Public Administration Enterprise ArchitechturePavel Hrabe, University of Economics (VSE), Prague
The Concept of Czech Public Administration Enterprise Architecture
This presentation will summarize all proposed aspects of structure and implementation roadmap of Government Enterprise Architecture of the Czech Public Administration as one of matters of Public Administration Reform.
The speaker will introduce the current state of Czech eGovernment and achievements like running central registers, secured DatBoxes or Front Office layer called CzechPOINT. This presentation will also uncover existing challenges like missing PA and IT service catalogs or not consolidated application portfolio and insufficient tools and resources for IT investment management.
Next the speaker will explain how the Governmental Enterprise Architect can help to solve these challenges, e.g. how GEA will be used for alignment of results particular process modelling projects, how GEA can help establish homogeneous environment for Czech PA performance evaluation or how Business Cases of individual IT projects can be checked for compliance with federative architecture with aim to preserve and enhance already achieved eGovernment results.
The presentation will discuss the results of multiple case studies conducted in 2013 at 14 agencies, from different levels of Czech Public Administration from central Government to local municipalities. The results of the studies will demonstrate the wish of agency managers to use GEA as a manner of exploration, understanding and PA reform. It will also show their desire to use best practice for building architectural artifacts and share their own results with others
The presentation will summarize the requirements of study participants on EA framework adaptation and localization, like translation from trusted Best Practice resources such as TOGAF® and ArchiMate® to Czech language, simplification, complementing it with practical Czech examples and with various accelerators, e.g. Process Capability Hierarchy or Application Architecture Reference Model.
The final part of the presentation will explain the proposed structure of the whole Czech GEA environment components, implementation concept and expected next steps of Czech Government regarding GEA implementation.
