Engineering architectures in a fast-moving digital world can only be successful when there is a short feedback loop to stakeholders and implementation. Traditional engineering and architecting approaches can make for slow learning and lack of flexibility when things change. In this webinar, Eltjo will share his experiences speeding up the architecture cycle in various organizations, based on the Risk and Cost Driven Architecture approach (RCDA).
