Following an inspiring first day in Westminster, The Open Group London 2018 continued on Tuesday, April 17th as attendees arrived for another full day of expert speakers and thought-provoking topics.
On Monday, April 16th, in sunny London, The Open Group kicked off its latest event with an opening speech from CEO Steve Nunn to a bustling room at the Central Hall Westminster, a remarkable venue located a stone’s throw from the iconic Houses of Parliament and Big Ben. Steve welcomed over 300 attendees from 25 countries, including Singapore, Australia, and Czech Republic. Steve also announced the much anticipated launch of The Open Group TOGAF® Standard, Version 9.2.
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.
In beautiful, sunny San Diego, California, The Open Group hosted its latest event January 29 – February 1 at the iconic US Grant Hotel in the lively Gaslamp District. The theme was ‘The Role of Reference Architectures’. We welcomed over 200 attendees from 17 countries – a great first event of the year!
Steve Nunn, President and CEO of The Open Group, reflects back on 2017 and looks forward to 2018. Topics include: The Open Group Open Process Automation Forum™, The Open Group SOSA™ Consortium, TOGAF® 9.1 certifications, The Open Group Open Badges program, Digital Practitioners Work Group, Enterprise Architecture for Governments, upcoming events, and much more!
