The Open Group Security Forum published a white paper and a case study that will be of interest to Open FAIR users, and Risk Management professionals.
With over 12,000 new certifications in the past 12 month period, TOGAF continues to be adopted globally with over 70,000 certified individuals from 134 different countries.
The continued success and planned outcomes of Digital India clearly depends on disciplined adoption of standards…and Enterprise Architecture is the backbone.
Tackling some key misconceptions about Enterprise Architecture can ease fear, uncertainty, and doubt about its effectiveness. If there is any form that is essential, it is text, whether the text is annotating a diagram or fully describing a requirement, it must be used to document architecture. An example of an architecture documented in only text is the U.S. Constitution.
The ArchiMate language should address only what is necessary to model architecture and leave the other areas to appropriate modeling languages, such as BPMN™ for business process models and UML® for software models. Each profession has its own optimal terminology, languages, and tools. The ArchiMate language should not challenge languages designed for disciplines beyond architecture. It is better to ensure traceability between different model types to maintain consistency. If there is a desire for a modeling language for other areas, do not just add them to the ArchiMate language but make a related new language.
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.
