Avolution at the Open Group London Conference

Updated on

Most enterprise architecture teams now need to collaborate on data and models across multiple locations and time-zones.

Avolution is sponsoring The Open Group conference to be held at London’s Central Hall Westminster on April 25 to April 28, 2016, and are demonstrating their collaborative enterprise modeling and roadmapping tool, ABACUS 4.5.

Avolution’s Dr Tim O’Neill will discuss how organizations can take steps to implement a clear digital business strategy in real-time, using the latest enterprise architecture techniques. These include multiple architecture analysis, roadmapping and algorithms for analysing and making recommendations about complex business ecosystems.

Dr O’Neill said:

“The range of stakeholders requiring access to enterprise architecture intelligence beyond the core enterprise architecture team continues to expand. In many organizations this includes CIOs, CDOs, CFOs, marketing and sales, as well as Solutions Architects, Business Process Managers, and anyone involved in Application Portfolio Management, Enterprise Portfolio Management, IT Strategy and Business Intelligence.”

“Providing accessible and current enterprise architecture data that can be served up in real-time from anywhere in a global business is quickly becoming a non-negotiable for Chief Architects and CIOs. Using ABACUS, each of these users across a multinational business can collaborate on or interrogate a central model, across time-zones and locations.”

“For Open Group conference attendees, we’ll also be demonstrating how to build an enterprise architecture roadmap and how to use multiple architecture analysis and proprietary ABACUS algorithms to analyse complex business ecosystems.”

The Open Group Conference 2016 will cover how to architect systems using tools and frameworks such as TOGAF and ArchiMate; Social, Mobile, Analytics and Cloud (SMAC); risk management and cybersecurity, business transformation, EA in Government and professional development.

The full ABACUS product suite will be available for delegates to view at the conference and Avolution experts will be available to discuss:

  • Developing an enterprise architecture strategy
  • Aligning technology and application strategies with your business
  • Best-practice Enterprise Architecture roadmapping
  • Using ABACUS for Enterprise Portfolio Management (EPM), IT strategic planning, Business Process Management (BPM), Solution Architecture (SOA), IT Service Management (ITSM), Business Intelligence (BI), and Governance, Risk & Compliance (GRC)
