CTO, The Dragon1 Software Company
Q: How long have you been involved with The Open Group?
Q. What do you do, and how long have you been doing it?
The past ten years I have been active in doing large enterprise architecture programs at clients concerning enterprise innovation and enterprise change.
I have a clear mind on how a specific organization at best can adopt to the changing environment and changing needs of clients and employees. My specialties are visualizing architecture and formulating principles in such a way that directors and managers can take strategic decisions with them.
Q: Why did your organization become a member and what does your involvement look like? What forum did your organization join?
We became member of The Open Group because we have also developed Dragon1 a web-based software tool for Visual Enterprise Architecture.
We think Dragon1 is of great added value when it is used in addition to TOGAF® and ArchiMate. Dragon1 enables architects to be present in the boardroom and have boardroom members and senior executive managers take visual control over their enterprises innovation and governance.
