Enterprise Architecture Driven Business Innovation


You can view the Proceedings from this event here.

Enterprise Transformation and its associated systems architecture is often driven by business innovation, leading to a fundamental change in the way a business operates. The Open Group supports enterprise transformation goals by working with suppliers and end-users to establish open, vendor-neutral IT standards that can be used in a cross-section of industries.

This event will explore how new IT trends are empowering improvements in business and facilitating enterprise transformation. The modern enterprise has moved beyond the point where information technology merely supports or enables the business, increasingly information technology is the business.

We will consider how Enterprise Architecture (EA) standards can create a foundation for Enterprise Transformation and facilitate business innovation. EA is enabling the enterprise to successfully adapt to ‘disruptive technologies’ like Cloud computing, mobile access, social media and Big Data.

Objectives Include:

  • Describe how to develop better interoperability and communication across organizational boundaries and pursue global standards for Enterprise Architecture that are highly relevant to all industries.
  • Identify how organizations can achieve their business objectives by adopting new technologies and processes as part of the Enterprise Transformation management principles – making the whole process more a matter of design than of chance
  • Outline some of the technological imperatives for providers, with the use of Open Platform 3.0™ to enable products and services to work together and deploy emerging technologies freely and in combination.
  • Describe how industry sectors have faced transformation and relied on Enterprise Architecture and TOGAF® and ArchiMate® to manage that process and make it something that is standardized, understood and repeatable.

What You Will Learn:

  • Discover the role that EA plays in business innovation and enterprise transformation.
  • Understand the business impact of emerging technologies, in particular, cloud, social, mobile, big data, and the Internet of Things.
  • Learn how industry experts are addressing organizational change by aligning business needs with information technology, and increasing business value from EA.
  • Learn how to create successful IT projects using skills frameworks and certification programs.
