    November Chapter Meeting

    “Enterprise Architecture & Data in the Time of the Cloud.” 

    Tuesday, November 14th

    Bellevue Sheraton,  100 112th Ave. NE  6 - 8:30 p.m.


    In this presentation, Barry will discuss how the foundations of enterprise computing have profoundly changed in the last few years as a result of new technologies, most notably the cloud. 

    With the explosion of new capabilities in the cloud available at commodity prices, the role of the architect in the enterprise has shifted from one of risk minimization to innovator.   Yet an increasingly demanding regulatory environment means that traditional disciplines of data and information management are still as important as ever. And at the same time, the core business models of many enterprises are radically – and rapidly – transforming to take advantage of all the new technological possibilities. 

    All of these trends create new pressures and demands on the architect whose role is changing. In this talk, Barry will discuss this transformation and what it means to the architect and the enterprise IT organization. 

    Barry Briggs, an independent consultant, has a long history in software and enterprise computing. He served in a number of roles during his twelve-year career at Microsoft, most recently as Chief Enterprise Architect in Microsoft’s DX (Developer Experience) Team. Collaborating with Microsoft customers, Barry’s team designed and built "epic" applications to show off the cloud and its potential. He is co-author of  Enterprise Cloud Strategy  and the forthcoming Envision // Disrupt both from Microsoft Press.

     Previously Barry served as Chief Architect and CTO for Microsoft’s IT organization. Principal among his accomplishments were creating and leading MSIT’s cloud strategy team, which put in place the strategy and processes behind the migration of Microsoft’s internal IT ecosystem to the cloud. 

    He also led the Enterprise Architecture team which aligned business strategies to technology assets for maximum impact and agility. He drove a strategic incubations unit which built cutting-edge software designed for IT-wide impact, and technology adoption strategies, which fostered the deep relationship Microsoft IT has with its product groups.

    Prior to the CTO role, Barry led the team that created the world’s largest Master Data Management (MDM) solution for Microsoft. He joined Microsoft in 2003 as senior architect for Business Process and Integration Division, which built BizTalk Server.

    Prior to Microsoft, Barry served as CTO for a number of companies (Aptsoft, Wheelhouse, BroadVision, Interleaf); and before that spent 11 years at Lotus/IBM. There Barry was the lead architect and developer for Lotus’ famous spreadsheet product, 1-2-3, for a number of years. In addition, he also helped develop Lotus Notes and led the technology integration of Lotus with IBM following the acquisition. He also created and led the team responsible for the world’s first Java-based productivity suite, Lotus eSuite. In 1995 he was named a Lotus Fellow.
