In the digital age, whether an organization will experience a cyber disruption is not a question of “if” but “when?” Although disruptive events may be inevitable, organizations can be prepared with some strategizing and planning.
The aim of this event was to unite practitioners and industry experts to discuss achievements, lessons learned and looming issues in e-Government. The theme, “Making Standards Work® e-Government” looked at the e-Society, e-Technology and e-Management viewpoints –federal, provincial, municipal and NGOs. Emphasis was on how techniques such as Enterprise Architecture and Business Design and standards such as TOGAF® and ArchiMate® are acting as a foundational core for enterprise transformation.
Topics include: issues surrounding business transformation, business analysis, information sharing, e-health, privacy and cyber-security. In addition, the strategic execution and the application of emerging technologies and management techniques to e-Government will be the subject of presentations by global experts.
The Open Group Security Forum published a white paper and a case study that will be of interest to Open FAIR users, and Risk Management professionals.
With over 12,000 new certifications in the past 12 month period, TOGAF continues to be adopted globally with over 70,000 certified individuals from 134 different countries.
The continued success and planned outcomes of Digital India clearly depends on disciplined adoption of standards…and Enterprise Architecture is the backbone.
Banks have been one of the early adopters of Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) and Integration technology such as Enterprise Service Bus (ESB). Why was it imperative for banks to embrace SOA? The diverse enterprise eco-system centered on the core banking platform can easily become very complex with hundreds of interconnected systems built using diverse technology stacks and scattered around different geographical locations. It was either death by a thousand cuts or to adopt SOA, and wisely so, most banks chose the latter!
