Donald, the chapter chair reports: 'We had invited some lovely folks from the Enterprise Architecture Specialist Group of BCS, The Chartered Institute of IT. Iakov and Sachin were very enthusiastic and they ran us through the most popular architecture frameworks and primers in under an hour. They also covered why standardisation is difficult and how architectural transitions are done in an agile manner. Our 51 attending members also got a chance to get to know more about what they do in IBM and Arup Digital'.
