What we're about

Welcome to The Architecting for Innovation Meet-up group.

This group was originally formed as an offshoot from the Australasian Architecture Network Group on Linkedin http://www.linkedin.com/groups/1822816 . Then it was it was a group of Enterprise and Solution Architects meeting in the pub for a few beers and a chat.

Since then we have run a number of formal meet-up's in Sydney and Melbourne and the subjects have changed and morphed but always with an Architecture undertone with an eye on innovation.

Meet-up subjects have included:-

*Open Source Technology in an Open Architecture World

• Product across NPP and Cyber-security in The Global Payments Landscape

• FinTech Sydney - Start-up to Enterprise

• Disruptive Innovation

• FinTech

• IoT Security

• Attracting retaining Architects

• DevOps

• Wearable Devices and the Internet of Things

• Predicting The Future of Cloud

• Tom Graves Masterclass

We work hard to provide value to our community through access to pertinent market intelligence and networking platforms, creating and hosting industry thought leadership events; and presenting interesting jobs for exciting companies. This benefits our customers through access to well qualified, engaged and driven individuals.

We cover a range of subjects in the Technology and Digital landscape with the focus around innovation and disruption.

If you are keen on joining a panel for any of the upcoming meet-ups let me know.

Thanks, Andrew Blades
