The main themes at this week’s Conference are Cybersecurity, Enterprise Architecture, SOA and Cloud Computing. But there are a number of common threads running through it all relating to value delivered to IT customers through open systems; one of those threads is Interoperability.
TOGAF®’s tremendous growth over the past few years is a testament to not only how much open enterprise architecture frameworks are needed within organizations today, but also to how certifications like TOGAF® can help professionals differentiate themselves and remain secure in their employment when staff cutting is rampant throughout most industries.
At this Conference, the RTES Forum will start to examine the technologies and techniques in the industry surrounding the development of Dependability Cases.
At TOGAF Camp, you will take away new or refined ideas that can be applied to your own enterprise, and we upload the discussion content into a wiki accessible to all.
I’m not saying that TOGAF™ can save the universe, but from where I’m sitting, it looks like our best bet at the moment!
ArchiMate® is an open and independent graphical modeling language for enterprise architecture, but that’s only the start of the matter. It’s much more appropriate to see it as a stakeholder management tool. When used in conjunction with an EA framework like TOGAF™, ArchiMate takes on a new dimension and delivers an ability to communicate and collaborate with stakeholders through the creation of clear models, based on viewpoints that have a common foundation in both TOGAF and ArchiMate.
