The month of October saw The Open Group South Africa host its “mostly-monthly” EA Forum at FirstRand’s, Merchant Place in Sandton., and again in Cape Town, the following afternoon, at the Hyde Hotel.
The Johannesburg event turned out to be a fully-booked affair with 60-odd people filling up the auditorium, all in anticipation of the speaker Josef Langerman.
2019 has seen the launch of The Open Group’s TOGAF Business Architecture Level 1 qualification. Real IRM prides itself as being the only service provider to offer this accredited course and credential in South Africa.
The credential is aimed at individuals who want to validate their knowledge and understanding of Business Modelling, Business Capabilities, TOGAF Business Scenarios, Information Mapping, and Value Streams by applying them in the development of a Business Architecture based on the TOGAF ® Standard Version, 9.2.
The Open Group has introduced an Open Certified Data Scientist (Open CDS) certification programme for data scientists. Open CDS is an independent global certification for qualifying the skills, knowledge, and experience of Data Scientists.
The certification not only provides an opportunity for data scientists to increase their skills and demonstrate their professional expertise but also provides an opportunity for organisations to enhance their own learning and development programmes with a clearer understanding of the role played by their data scientists.
The TOGAF Standard updated with further emphasis on Business Architecture, and restructured to support the TOGAF Library
The Open Group, the vendor-neutral IT consortium, has launched the Open Business Architecture (O-BA) Preliminary Standard Part I, an Open Group standard, at The Open Group Austin Event on July 18th.
This is the first release of a three part standard designed to improve alignment, governance and integration between the different aspects of business transformation projects.
The Open Group ArchiMate® Forum will make available the latest version of the ArchiMate Specification®, version 3.0, with a series of announcements and events to take place throughout the months of June and July.
The latest evolution has the following new features:
The Open Group, the vendor neutral IT consortium, has announced the launch of its new IT4IT™ Reference Architecture Standard at its conference in Edinburgh.
The Open Trusted Technology Provider™ Standard (O-TTPS), a Standard from The Open Group for Product Integrity and Supply Chain Security, has been approved as ISO/IEC International Standard.
It is one of the first standards aimed at assuring both the integrity of commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) information and communication technology (ICT) products and the security of their supply chains.
The Open Group launched the The Open Group IT4IT™ Forum to provide a vendor-neutral environment for IT executives to meet, gain knowledge and lead the development of the IT4IT Reference Architecture for IT portfolio management.
The Open Group has established the Open Platform 3.0™ Forum to help organisations to take advantage of the convergence of modern technologies like Cloud, Social, Mobile Computing and Big Data. Independently-developed web service solutions will very rarely work together “out of the box”, but there is an increasing need for such solutions to work together. Hence, the Forum aims to identify a set of new platform capabilities, and architect and standardise an IT platform so as to create a common architecture environment which will deliver integrated solutions.
