Day 2`s Session Videos
You can check my notes on the sessions that I’ve attended here

Keynote (Day 2) – Enterprise Architecture at the Government of Canada
The Government of Canada has started to apply EA in innovative ways and they are getting results in ways (and places) you will not expect. Come learn how Canada’s Chief Architect and his team are pushing the EA envelop and driving towards Coherent Government by Design.

CSAF 2008 – Day 2 My Notes

Day 2 in general is interesting… but when I found that Simon Guest won`t come tomorrow, a bit disappointed. For the full list of sessions videos, click here

KeyNote: EA – Everything Aligned
Gary Doucet from Government of Canada shared his insight in EA implementation. He emphasised that the enterprise architecture already exist in the enterprise… just not in a structure way…we need to make it coherent/align. The EA process should be a driver role to design the business process instead of just capturing the requirement, progressing from foundation, extended to embedded stage of the alignment between business process and architecture.

Canada Strategic Architecture Forum 2008 Day 1
  • Morning session is quite interesting, it seems that Microsoft having a big bet for future in MS-Surface and natural interface (IPod Touch?)
  • Richard (BMO) having a very interest presentation to share his experience as a Chief Architect in BMO, some of them are very practical (or real) tips…
  • Afternoon sessions are a bit disappointed, nothing really new from Microsoft’s sessions. They still promoting their BPIO model (MS version of CMMI…), but I found that it’s too MS-product centric…
  • The Application Platform Optimization via SOA session was quite interesting for the Service Virtualization concept… (too bad, we don`t have video for this session yet…)

In the panel discussion session, I joined the SOA road map one…
I`m still hesitate or doubt to have a solid SOA road map, or invest in the solid implementation yet. We always say that the architecture should not rely on technology implementations. I still remember in late 80s to early 90s when every architect focus on state-of-the-art distributed computing architecture using DCE, COBRA and Forte (MS may want to put DCOM in the same category). When the http (and Java) waves come in 90s (thanks to T. Berners-Lee), all the effort in those heavy weighted stacks on APIs or IDLs become legacy architecture. Will those WS-* based or WCF based SOA face the same problem when the RESTful wave come, actually it`s coming already.

Keynote – Norm Judah
Architectural discontinuities continue to drive both innovation and opportunity. The next wave of these discontinuities is no different in its breadth and depth, for example; Mobile Platform, Virtualization, Software plus Services and Green Computing. Each one of these has implications on how we design, build, deploy and manage applications, and in particular, the application architecture.
