About The Open Group’s EA Practitioner’s Conference
“Positioning Enterprise Architecture to Deliver Business Value”
King III and COBIT 5 make enterprise architecture the CEO’s accountability. The importance of enterprise architecture as a strategic business capability and even as a source of competitive advantage is becoming increasingly well understood. What makes it source of competitive advantage is that so few organisations do it well.
The Open Group EA Practitioners Conference - Johannesburg 2013 explores how companies have positioned enterprise architecture and the experiences that their practitioners have had while implementing it within their organisations.
This is an opportunity to interact with members of the enterprise architecture community and share in their experiences. The conference promises relevant presentations, panel discussions, networking events and an exhibition all geared to provide a broad view of enterprise architecture and all its facets.
