Episode 45 – Why do CIOs need Enterprise Architecture: Luca de Risi
Enterprise Architects? Aren’t those the useless people who always say “no”?
That is one of the perspectives we have heard about EAs in the past. But what can EAs do and how do the progress from “noisy” to “influential”?
In this episode of the What’s Your Baseline? podcast we discuss the role of Enterprise Architects and the changes to the discipline with Luca de Risi from Mega International, who brings a wealth of experience in this field to the episode.
Luca is Mega’s Chief Executive Officer and he held various leadership positions at the firm before that, like, being the country manager for the APAC business while being located in Singapore, or as Business Development Executive in the United States. He started his career as an internal auditor for a major French car maker before joining Mega.
Luca lives in Paris with his wife and young daughter, so we all know that he’s busy on two fronts 🙂
In this episode of the podcast we are talking about:
- Luca’s background
- Key drivers for EA today and the key role of the architect
- Business Transformation and continuous change
- Examples of transformation projects
- EA and Security – a connected approach
- Resilency and change of the EA role from designer to orchestrator
- What slows EAs down?
