What is Solutions Architecture? This multidisciplinary practice started becoming common in the languages services industry around decade ago, emerging as a role that supports solving business problems in our increasingly complex and interconnected field. Inspired by the metaphor of designing a building, the practice involves applying technology and process solutions to business problems, understanding the interactions of different systems and procedures and how they interact with each other, how the solution will scale and be maintained, as well as understanding costs, recommending pricing, understanding customer satisfaction, sales strategy and presentation skills and the , and guiding the team in charge of execution to produce the deliverable to spec . This year we are introducing the Solution Architect Round Table to focus on the practice and application of various aspects of Solution Architecture. The moderators will facilitate open communication about real-world issues, problem resolutions, and wishes for technology and process improvement.
Ideal participants are inquisitive, curious, and willing to share their experiences in understanding and solving problems in the language industry.
An Advisory Board assists in the creation of the agenda and facilitates the topics and presentations that comprise the 2020 event. Most Board members plan to attend the Round Table. To assess the sophistication of information that will be available to attendees at the Round Table, read the bios of the Advisory Board members. There is a lot to be learned from this group of experienced industry practitioners.
Who is there and what happens?
Most Round Table attendees have at least ten years of experience in the translation industry in various roles involving solutions development, hands on management, engineering or technology application – often a combination of all four. As a result, presentations and discussions deal with advanced topics. Newbies who wish to listen, ask questions, and learn are also welcome.
The format of the Round Table relies on short presentations, some of them impromptu, followed by extensive discussions involving as many attendees as possible.
To ensure that Round Table topics are as relevant and timely as possible for the participants, we leave the last session unplanned. The subject matter for this open session is determined onsite by the attendees. Open session topics can be proposed at any time during the event.
The Round Table’s success depends on attendees being willing to share information and experiences freely. To encourage spontaneity, no formal minutes or records are kept or published. Attendees are free to keep their own notes.
Discussion of translation tool prices and details of vendor contracts is not permitted.
