Guru Lecture: ‘Enterprise architecture: From cathedrals to the cloud’

“This lecture will reflect on the work of well known IBM architects of the past, providing examples of their work. It will then consider some of the current issues in designing enterprise software applications using IBM’s Maximo and Blueworks Live products. The focus will be on how we can capture and model user requirements and then deliver product to meet those requirements.”
