Avolution Sponsors IDC Enterprise Architecture Conference 2015, Previews Abacus 4.4

Avolution founder Dr Tim O’Neill to chair discussion on SOA and EA.

London, United Kingdom, March 19, 2015 --(PR.com)-- For the third consecutive year, Avolution is sponsoring the IDC Enterprise Architecture Conference, to be held at London’s Victoria Park Plaza Hotel on March 19th.

Avolution will also be providing the first showcase of ABACUS® 4.4, the new release of its flagship enterprise modeling and roadmapping toolset, and leading a roundtable discussion: ‘SOA and EA: Coexistence or conflict?’.

IDC's Enterprise Architecture Conference 2015 is themed around Demonstrating Value of EA to Business Stakeholders.

Dr O’Neill said: “The key to a successful EA initiative is to bridge the gap between the models we build and successful delivery into the business, and then to demonstrate and communicate the ROI of these efforts to management. In large businesses, this is hugely complex, and although you can’t make complex things simple, you can make them understandable.”

The full ABACUS product suite will be available for delegates to view at the conference and Avolution experts will be available to discuss:

- Developing an enterprise architecture strategy
- Aligning technology and application strategies with your business
- Best-practice Enterprise Architecture roadmapping with ABACUS
- Using ABACUS for Enterprise Portfolio Management (EPM), IT strategic planning, Business Process Management (BPM), Solution Architecture (SOA), IT Service - Management (ITSM), Business Intelligence (BI), and Governance, Risk & Compliance (GRC)

The IDC Enterprise Architecture Conference takes place at Victoria Park Plaza Hotel, 239 Vauxhall Bridge Rd, London SW1V 1EQ. Places are still available, free of charge. Visit the conference website.
