Preview for Talk #1

Our first Technovation Talks presentation (coming this weekend) will be entitled: "Understanding IT Architecture - An Overview."  We chose IT Architecture as a starting point given its universal nature and the fact that it provides a vantage point for exploring most other Technovation topics. What is IT Architecture; how does it differ from traditional architecture; why are there so many types of IT architecture? We will address these questions as well as the core concepts associated with the field.

The mindmap below illustrates some of the basics associated with the topic. This presentation will also provide a jumping off point for a variety of related Overview and In-Depth Technovation Talks on architecture.

Architecture is well-suited to illustrating problem sets
As move deeper into more detailed IT Architecture Technovation Talks, we will provide contextual examples as to how architecture can be used creatively in real-world projects.
