New Event: The Open Group Oslo Conference 2013

Skjermbilde 2013-05-17 kl. 20.12.08– Business Development by Enterprise Architecture. That is the theme for The Open Group Oslo Conference 2013.

Larger more complex changes that affect several stakeholders within an organization must often be handled in a program of several coordinated projects and line activities. The ultimate goal of such a change will generally need to be revised during the lifetime of the program.

The accepted methods available to control program generally lack clear guidelines on what must be done to plan the change process, dividing it into the project, manage dependencies between projects, and establish phases with clear target images.

New possibilities arise through innovations in business models, and knowledge but also organizational change and cost cutting. This requires new tools to stay successful in managing and developing the business or organization as it evolves with the markets.

Enterprise Architecture consolidates organizations into “structures” or reusable and manageable capabilities which form the base for planning and prioritization projects aiming at change such as outsourcing and new business processes supported by IT applications.
