A number of new Business Architecture methods are being built into the TOGAF® framework to better allow companies to address value stream and business capability mapping. At The Open Group London event in April, J. Bryan Lail, Business Architect Fellow with Raytheon, discussed how Raytheon is using Business Architecture as part of its overall Enterprise Architecture to create a new Sales and Operations Planning method for all the company’s various products and divisions.
Following the second day of The Open Group London 2018, which was crammed full of content, as well as an exciting awards event on Tuesday evening, the third day, April 18th, was kicked off with both a TOGAF® User Group Meeting, as well as an IT Management Professionals Day.
Following an inspiring first day in Westminster, The Open Group London 2018 continued on Tuesday, April 17th as attendees arrived for another full day of expert speakers and thought-provoking topics.
In September 2017, The Open Group began working with Acclaim, (a division of Pearson VUE, an exam delivery company), to introduce the concept of “Open Badges” to The Open Group IT4IT™ and Open Certified Architect certification programs. Since then, we have been busy – we have now rolled out this program across our entire certification portfolio and as a result have invited everyone with a current certification with The Open Group to participate. This has resulted in over 20,000 badges being issued, with no surprises that the TOGAF®, a standard of The Open Group, badges are the most popular.
Steve Nunn, President and CEO of The Open Group, reflects back on 2017 and looks forward to 2018. Topics include: The Open Group Open Process Automation Forum™, The Open Group SOSA™ Consortium, TOGAF® 9.1 certifications, The Open Group Open Badges program, Digital Practitioners Work Group, Enterprise Architecture for Governments, upcoming events, and much more!
