Iasa UK North 1

Great Evening on Thursday at Iasa UK North 1 where Astra Zeneca played host to a great series of lightening talks! So good in fact that I have to push mine off the agenda!

Well, I still got chance to introduce the speakers and to give a quick overview of Iasa UK activities which you can find here.

Next up was Bola Rotibi from Creative Intellect who talked about what the enterprise needs architects to consider.

Next on was John Whiteway who went solo with nothing more than a piece of paper, his wit and intellect – great talk with the catchy title “Enterprise Social Networking underpins Predictive Science Capability”! Honestly inspiring stuff!

Following this was hard, but Simon Thurman of Emerging Technology at Microsoft UK is a dab hand, giving us a brief history of Azure on one slide …

After more pizza and beer it was time to realise that … Architecture is Boring, or so someone said to Neil Wetherall of Astra Zeneca! He gave some compelling reasons why people say this and more importantly, what architects should do to change this view …

Last but least it was the turn of Saffron Prior to share more secrets of agile and how it’s changing the way that IT generates value.

SO there we go … what a first night for Iasa UK North … with plenty more in store like this to follow!

Many thanks to all and especially Astra Zeneca for making this such a success!
