18th Annual

Enterprise Architecture Conference & Expo

April 24, 2019 | Ronald Reagan Building, Washington, DC




Enterprise Architecture has become one of the pillars of the federal IT world to help make operations run smoothly, seamlessly and maneuver easily.  No matter what technology is touted, or how service oriented and agile the applications are — especially cloud-based or SAAS environments — technology systems must be designed and implemented to support the business or mission and enable processes. If integrated IT systems don’t work or fail, the business or mission may be in jeopardy. The only insurance any enterprise or organization has is a fully articulated and robust EA program.

EA is about understanding the business, the mission and how to maintain, improve, fix or transform it, often involving IT as a transformational mechanism. It helps an agency understand inter-relationships between investments, minimize duplication, improve interoperability and compatibility between systems, and is essential to any agency’s modernization. Every agency has an EA now, but it is not something that can be deployed and forgotten. EA must be kept current and every agency must regularly evaluate how it is working, in order to avoid damaging the enterprise or jeopardizing secure network systems.

Learn how to keep your EA plans relevant and effective for today’s challenges at the 18th annual Enterprise Architecture Conference & Expo.


  • “The quality of the speakers exceeded my expectations! Very well done by the education team.”
  • “Dynamic speakers and thought leadership for where EA is / should be going.”
  • “I LOVED the industry speakers in the morning. They shared some really practical tools that EA needs to be using for continuing value in IT. I can’t wait to get their presentations in order to share with colleagues that couldn’t attend.”
  • “The professionalism and expertise of the speakers regarding their topic areas! I also look forward to downloading the slides provided by the speakers. This is the great asset provided by DGI, because it allows me to focus on listening to the topic at hand, rather than copiously taking notes.”
