The Open Group, the vendor-neutral technology standards consortium, is hosting its upcoming “Digital-First” event virtually on July 20 – 23, 2020. The Open Group Digital-First July 2020 will bring together vendors and end-user organizations from across the globe to explore how they can make the radical, fundamental change towards becoming a digital enterprise – a topic that has never been more pertinent as business and technology leaders face the challenge of surviving and thriving in the ‘new normal’.
The Open Group is very pleased to announce the number of individual certifications worldwide in the TOGAF® 9 certification program has passed the major milestone of 100,000.
TOGAF 9 certification is the trusted vendor-neutral and globally recognized certification for the TOGAF Standard, the open Enterprise Architecture standard used by the world’s leading organizations to improve their business efficiency.
The number of individuals certified in the TOGAF® Certification Program as of May 2020 is growing rapidly and about to surpass 100,000 – currently standing at 98,900. This includes certified individuals from 149 countries, with the most certifications awarded in the UK, USA, India, Netherlands, and Australia.
The TOGAF Standard, a standard of The Open Group, is a proven Enterprise Architecture (EA) methodology and framework, used by the world’s leading organizations to improve business efficiency. Representing a Body of Knowledge from world-leading practitioners, the latest TOGAF Standard, Version 9.2 is universally known as industry best practice.
This week marked a first for The Open Group. While our physical conferences and Member Meetings have become the world-class events for which we are known, the health and safety of our staff, Members, and event attendees take priority during these unprecedented times.
As an organization that prides itself on bringing people together globally, this week we hosted our first ever virtual event, #ogVIRTUAL. In the face of adversity, it was fantastic to see over 2,000 attendees from 85 countries across the world come together virtually to explore the topic of ‘Digital First’.
In this time of the Covid-19 pandemic and the associated extreme economic disruption we’re all experiencing, the imperative to move rapidly toward digital products and business models is becoming both clear and increasingly urgent.
I wanted to share some updates on training and certification from The Open Group in the light of the COVID-19 (coronavirus) restrictions, covering how we are adapting to the current environment. Our main focus is enabling you to continue to grow your knowledge of our standards and best practices, and become certified, while keeping safe.
