Data Sources, Data Management and Data Spaces in the context of Sustainibility and Environmental Challenges

Lean Leader Summit 2024

There are many different data sources with different spatial and temporal resolutions that are already used by experts in Environmental und sustainibility topics. This data is usually very domain specific, e.g. the monitoring of the number of insects to calculate an indicator for biodiversity.

To fulfill the requirements of monitorings and decisions in the field of circular economy, biodiversity, pollution and climate adaption use cases require combination of different data sources, data and the concept of data spaces as the European Green Deal Data Space.

The presentation will focus on the challenges and use cases.

Positionierung von EAM als Vordenker und Taktgeber

Lean EAM Konferenz 2019

Die Rolle des Enterprise Architekturmanagements wird seit seines Bestehens diskutiert. Wo ist das Thema heute in Unternehmen angesiedelt, wie ist seine Rolle in der Digitalisierung und was wird und sollte sich verändern?
Im Zuge der Digitalisierung kommen neue Rollen wie der Chief Digital Officer auf, andere verändern sich, z.B. wird durch die Zunahme der Bedeutung von Cybersecurity über die Positionierung der CISO-Rolle in Unternehmen diskutiert. Innovation Labs, neu geschaffene Digitalisierungsbereiche und neue Zusammenarbeitsformen verändern bisherige Unternehmensstrukturen.
Was sind dabei die Erwartungen an die Enterprise Architektur? Was sind die Stärken guter Enterprise Architekten? Wo, in welchen Themen kann Architektur (Business-)Mehrwert schaffen und wie kann sie sich positionieren? Und wo sollten Architekten die eigene Komfortzone verlassen? Ein interaktiver Vortrag mit Beispielen aus der Praxis.
