Erik Proper

Mieke Mahakena

During this interactive session, we will discuss and exchange ideas and views on the role of the business architect. Topics include:

  • What is the delineation of the role of business architect and adjacent roles like enterprise architect, IT architect, business analyst, business consultant and solution architect? This delineation provides insight into the responsibilities, activities and focus areas of the business architect.
  • What kind of skills and experience is needed to effectively execute the role of the business architect?
  • How to become a business architect and how to shape your career?

This session will be facilitated by Harry Hendrickx, Mieke Mahakena and Erik Proper. They will share the current position of the business forum and invite your active participation to challenge, validate and supplement the business forum’s point of view.
