In the recent few years, Enterprise Agility has become one of the key drivers for many organizations to be relevant and to sustain their core businesses. As the change is happening so rapidly in every business sector, if the organizations do not adapt to the speed and scale in delivering their services, they would soon become obsolete and run out of their customer base. To handle and to succeed in the business with the ever-changing business scenarios, transformation initiatives like driving Enterprise Agility has become the most important priority for present CXOs.
The Open Group hosted its latest event July 23 – 26 in the Lone Star State at Houston’s Westin Oaks at the Galleria. The theme was ‘Digital Transformation in the Energy Industry’. We welcomed over 200 attendees from 13 countries, including Brazil, China, and the Netherlands.
The rapid pace of change in technology and business today is driving the need for companies to be more adaptive than ever. Standards can help make these transitions easier for companies and aid them in their transformation efforts.
This blog is the first in a series that looks at how standards can be used together to help organizations better facilitate the transformations and changes they need to make. In this first installment, we spoke to Marc Lankhorst, Managing Consultant for BizzDesign, about the business imperatives that are driving enterprises to adopt a more adaptive approach to how they do business. Subsequent blogs in this series will explore the practical use of standards for adaptation and transformation.
The Open Group, the vendor-neutral technology standards consortium, is hosting its upcoming event in Houston, Texas, July 23 – 26, 2018.

The Open Group TOGAF Standard Version 9.2 was published April 16, 2018. A common misconception voiced by several people at that time was that Enterprise Architecture in general and the TOGAF Standard are barriers to enterprise agility.
This paper addresses that misconception by reference to specific sections of the standard; it does not assume the adoption of any specific agile method.
