Enterprise Architecture and IoT – A Case Study – 14 March 2019

March 14 @ 07:00 - 09:00

Topic Abstract:

South African enterprise architecture specialists, Knotion Consulting, were involved with a government agency project.  

The client desired the enhancement of their business services as well as an introduction of the SMART government concept using IoT.  By taking an EA approach, Knotion was able to realise the CEO’s dream of using IoT to refine service delivery to stakeholders, whilst improving Governance and real-time decision making.  A 5-year strategic plan and reference architectures were developed to successfully achieve this.


Thomas Nel was the Enterprise Architect on the project.  With his background as a professional engineer he will be sharing some of the key concepts, considerations, and lessons learned during the project, enabling architects to create strategic, segment and solution architecture and implementation roadmaps for a successful IoT project.
