Whichever definition you prefer, and there are more; the role of an Enterprise Architect is to try and pull the essential details from many different technical and business domains, make sense of it and communicate it as one overall story or roadmap.
This SIG tries to help Enterprise Architects, by giving them access to essential information about SAP products and strategy
The SIG is aimed at Enterprise Architects and at decision-making roles in business or IT, addressing questions such as:
- Making mode 1 and mode 2 work in real world
- Dealing with new / transformational technology and embedding it in business processes (Machine Learning, Blockchain)
