    Once upon a time - working in the IT industry, we thought that "we know what we already know". However, IT roles and functions have changed in the last decade from a business enabler to become strategic necessity thus helping enterprises grow and improve in their business capabilities. Hence, the enterprise transformation through Enterprise Architecture is highly critical for any organization to be successful in the 21st century by leveraging technology as a strategic vehicle to increase revenues and profits. Many enterprise key stockholders discover that they suddenly realized "they know what they do not know" on how Enterprise Architecture initiatives can bring together business and IT integration to generate revenues and profits for the organization.

    Most organizations have to cope with rapid and disruptive business change while utilizing evolving technology. This needs to be addressed from an end-to-end perspective, with close collaboration between a multitude of disciplines across the whole IT value chain. But who is the weakest link in the chain? In this interactive session, we will explore a notoriously weak link: information management. Information is an increasingly important business asset (e.g. using big data to gain competitive advantage) and information management is the link between the business and IT. But what does information management entail? Who is accountable and responsible? Have you got in under control? How can you demonstrate governance? Is there any guidance available?
