A Look Back at 2018 and What’s to Come in 2019

For many of us, each new year is an occasion to look back at the previous year’s accomplishments, as well as look forward to what’s to come over the course of the next year. For the past three years since I took over the reins as CEO of The Open Group, I’ve made it a tradition to take advantage of the new year to do just this, as I’m sure many of you do both in your professional and personal lives.

With the passing of each year, I’m always struck not only by how quickly it goes by, but how many new opportunities arise throughout the year for The Open Group that none of us ever could have predicted. What’s nice for me, from where I sit, is that there is no shortage of new opportunities for us as an organization to do what we’ve always done—to help organizations come together to solve their business problems through open standards.

How the TOGAF® Standard Enables Agility

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.
