International Association of Software Architects hosts a series of IT Architect Regional Conferences at Atlanta, GA, San Diego, CA, and Washington, D.Con Sept 13-14, Oct 15-16, and Oct 8-9 correspondingly. The organizers’ idea is instead of having one expensive national event leading to substantial travel expenses to host the conference three times in the country attracting much more visitors. Scott Amber gives the key notes on the conferences which makes it automatically as of a serious caliber.

I’m presenting MDM at Atlanta and the capital – MDM “MDM – where business meets IT“. I’m planning to talk about the problems MDM comes to resolve, why it’s vital for today’s business to address them, and what make an enterprise want to buy a ready solution instead of developing an in-house one. I’m planning to split marchitecture and tarchitecture as 1:5 (at least) so the geeks in the audience should not get too bored with ROI, TCO, and other exciting stuff.
Come to listen lead industry architects, learn something new, and rub shoulders with you colleagues. It’s gonna be fun.
