The Badge of Honor: Future-Proof Your Career with The Open Group Certifications

Continuous learning and development – it’s a phrase that can either fill you with joy or fear. Why?  Because we all know that the evolving technology landscape, driven by the advancement of AI, IoT, social media, mobile, andcloud technologies mean that our skills always need to be up to date. This is increasingly important as CIOs look to their internal teams to become experts on architecting for cloud environments and cutting through the market hyperbole. We are constantly asked to provide the frameworks, models, and maps that will work as part of a future forward EA strategy.

Introducing The Open Group Open FAIR™ Risk Analysis Tool

Since late in 2016, The Open Group Security Forum have been collaborating with San Jose State University and Probability Management to develop a Risk Analysis tool that adheres to The Open Group Open FAIR™ Standard.

With a view to creating a tool that helps accelerate the adoption of the Open FAIR standard, the tool provides both experienced and novice risk practitioners with a practical and pragmatic tool to help analyse perceived risk in a consistent and simple to use way, whatever industry they work in. It is now ready and we are pleased to make it available to use and evaluate for free.

The Open Group Open Badges Update – More Than Just a Pretty Image

In September 2017, The Open Group began working with Acclaim, (a division of Pearson VUE, an exam delivery company), to introduce the concept of “Open Badges” to The Open Group IT4IT™ and Open Certified Architect certification programs. Since then, we have been busy – we have now rolled out this program across our entire certification portfolio and as a result have invited everyone with a current certification with The Open Group to participate. This has resulted in over 20,000 badges being issued, with no surprises that the TOGAF®, a standard of The Open Group, badges are the most popular.
