Case Study 3 (Banking): “Uniting Architecture Work with Reality using Architecture Principles”
Eoin Woods, UBS Investment Bank

It is essential to apprehend the complicated mix of legacy complexity and new demand for scale and flexibility. The problem is how to relate the abstract ideas of enterprise architecture to the system level concerns of application architecture, to the day-to-day concerns of delivering systems. This talk will explain how architecture principles can be a useful technique to help achieve this.
