Fannie Mae directors … David Baldwin, director, Enterprise Architecture; Marcus Bontrager, director, Business Architecture; and Daniel Jamieson, director, Business Architecture … will discuss Blueprint for Success: How Architecture is Enabling Fannie Mae’s Transformation.
“Fannie Mae has emerged from the housing crisis with a lot of lessons learned and has worked to implement changes that will better secure the mortgage industry for years to come,” explained Baldwin.
“To enable these changes, Fannie Mae has transformed its enterprise architecture practice,” continued Bontrager.
“This new practice has put in place a methodology that spans business, data and technology to ensure cohesive alignment between organizational resources towards a common goal,” added Jamieson.
Kevin Costa, business transformation expert at MEGA, will discuss how companies are overcoming the challenges of resource-heavy IT portfolios that don’t deliver value, but consume budgets. His talk, Killing Applications: Don’t Become a Victim of the Zombie App-pocalypse, is a look at how lumbering, dying technology and bloated IT portfolios can be considered the zombies of the IT world. Costa will show how to streamline IT resources through crowdsourcing, where many people across the organization are involved in the collection, attestation, and management of data, creating trusted, real-time information that helps stabilize and modernize the IT infrastructure.
The discussion will also show how innovative Fortune 1000 companies are funding capability evolution rather than projects. Enterprises have learned that to move the organization forward, funding results … the capabilities required by a company … is more effective than funding projects, which don’t always deliver what’s needed to succeed in business transformation.
