2:00 pm - 2:40 pm EA in a VUCA World: From Collaborative to Actionable EA

André Christ - CEO & Co-founder, LeanIX

The global impact of the COVID-19 pandemic caught the world unawares. Not only did the pandemic tax our healthcare systems in ways we couldn’t imagine, it forced businesses to adjust to a largely remote workforce, cut costs, and make very difficult decisions to stay afloat. This unprecedented time elevated the role of enterprise architects into the champions of IT as they quickly assessed their companies’ business capabilities, determined how to provide more self-service abilities to employees, cut IT costs, and ensure business continuity throughout an organization. By stepping up during this testing time, EA has proven that it has the potential to engineer both future and immediate advantages for organizations.

  • Developing a clear model that showcases the business ecosystem, its dynamics, and the creation and sharing of information
  • Designing an intelligent information architecture that supports digitalisation and strategic innovation

3:50 pm - 4:30 pm Why SASE is the Future of SD-WAN and Security

Eyal Webber-Zvik - Vice President of Product Marketing, Cato Networks

SD-WAN is set for strong growth as enterprises migrate from MPLS to a more agile and affordable alternative. But be warned: IT teams worldwide have come to realize that deploying point products to address emerging connectivity, security, cloud, and mobility requirements at a global scale – is simply not sustainable.

The resulting cost, complexity, and rigidity contrast with the needs of a modern, digital business. There is a better solution. 

Join us in this session, where Eyal Webber-Zvik, Sr. Director of Product Marketing and Business Development at Cato Networks will explain why Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) is the future of SD-WAN and security, perfectly fit to address the needs of modern and digital enterprises.
