Arnold Miranda, Enterprise Integration Architect, Westpac Group, Australia
Having delivered Westpac Group SOA strategy in 2012, EA now finds itself in driver's seat of strategy execution in partnership with internal and external stakeholders. EA is working with teams in business architecture, application development, infrastructure, security, engineering and vendors, ensuring all activities are focused on realisation of the SOA strategy. One of the key themes of this strategy is the use of IFW to accelerate the modelling process, promote consistency and maintain alignment to the bank's business processes. The reference model helps contextualise, identify and define appropriate abstract enterprise service constructs, independently of the back-end interfaces and functions, to maximise the realisation of appropriate and stable enterprise services.

Prior to this role he led the architecture teams for some of Westpac's strategic transformation programs including Cards, Information Management and Core Banking. Before joining the bank, Arnold worked across a number of industries, focusing primarily on International Trade, Transportation and Supply Chain automation.
