The Open Group October Event To Take Place in Amsterdam

The Open Group, the vendor-neutral IT consortium, is hosting its upcoming event in Amsterdam, October 23-26, 2017. The Open Group Amsterdam 2017 will focus on Architecting the Digital Enterprise, bringing together vendors and end-user organizations to discuss how to architect the new digital enterprise.
The event’s focus will be on how Enterprise Architecture and standards such as the TOGAF® framework, ArchiMate® modeling language, and IT4IT™ reference architecture (for managing the business of IT) are empowering companies to build better systems by architecting for digital business strategies.

5G Technologies and Smart Cities – Q&A with Thomas Magedanz

Digitalization is forcing the convergence of networks and platforms that have traditionally remained separate. Mobile networks have previously been the domain of telecommunications providers, but as new mobile generations emerge the reach of the network is also becoming an enterprise domain.

We spoke with Thomas Magedanz, Professor of Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences at the Technische Universität Berlin and Director of the software-based networks competence center at Fraunhofer Institute FOKUS, about the expectations for 5G networks, why 5G technologies are being tested with Smart Cities applications and how standards can drive the global network interoperability that 5G will require. Thomas was a keynote speaker at The Open Group Berlin 2017 in April.

To Colonize Mars, NewSpace Companies Look to Standards Development

If we are to someday realize the dream of colonizing Mars, Enterprise Architects will play a critical role in getting us there. Developing open standards for the new space industry will help nascent NewSpace companies figure out how they can work together. RedWorks began as an effort to solve the problem of building on Mars. “Now RedWorks want to bring that 3D technology back to Earth. ​RedWorks is creating a flexible system to print building materials from the dirt beneath your feet. This hyper-local construction system will make it less costly to build in New Frontiers on Earth, by using long established architectural concepts in concert with new adapted organic construction technologies.”
