2018 IT Architecture Forum

Aligning world-class architecture with business strategy

That’s a wrap! The 2018 IT Architecture Forum is over for another year. 
For two days, the IT Architecture Forum brought together Enterprise Architects, IT Managers, CIO’s and CTO’s, and featured a range of speakers, including Psychologists, Agile Coaches, Risk Manager and Design Directors. 

Stefan Preston and Dougal Watt from Meaningful Technology kicked off the conference with their opening keynote on knowledge-centric architecture. Moderated by the event’s Chair David Molesworth, we had an insightful panel of Architects from Air New Zealand, Vector Group and Auckland Council discussing the role of the IT architect in 2018. 
Day one ended with a series of case studies and an extensive Q&A session with Auckland Council’s Jason Borowicz, the New Zealand Government’s Regine Deleu and Kotahi’s Wayne Bloem. 
Day two started with a theme of local government with sessions from Hamilton City Council’s Chief Technology Officer Pieter Bronkhorst, and Panuku Development Auckland’s Risk Manager David Middleton. 
Roundtable challenges got us up and moving, while Zhi Lee’s session of sketchnoting bought our creative sides to the forefront. 
Registered Psychologist Samantha Patel closed the event with a session on the relationship between art, science, and practice when instigating effective change. 
Thank you to all of our attendees, speakers and sponsors - see you next year!
