This session provides perspectives for evaluating and quantifying an organisation's maturity in Enterprise Architecture.

Kevin L Smith: Kevin's professional career spans over 30 years, performing various consulting engagements which have taken him across the globe from Europe and Africa to South East Asia and America. He is Pragmatic (concentrating on the 20% that can provide 80% of the benefit), and can bring a new mind-set to organisations that can provide real strategic business benefit.

He has worked at (and therefore understands) all levels of the Transformation domain (from Strategy to Deployment, from Enterprise Architecture to Development) for over 35 years, and is not just an academic, although his approach is based on solid conceptual foundations. He uses various frameworks such as Zachman and TOGAF as appropriate but has also created two globally adopted and published frameworks (POET and PEAF - The Pragmatic Enterprise Architecture Framework) that bridge the chasm between the high level introduction provided by Zachman and the extreme detail of TOGAF, and he is considered to be a thought leader with respect to the discipline of EA.

Paul Perry: Paul Perry is a Enterprise Service Architect for Department of Work and Pensions (DWP). His current role involves Enterprise Service Architecture, Service architecture vision, Transformational service design and design methodologies, Enabling systematic service component reuse, Development and application of service standards. Paul has previously worked with Thales and CGI.
