EA Forum

EA ForumThe EA forum is a social network event sponsored by The Open Group in South Africa. The EA forum started in 2004 and occurs every second month or so in the major centres with one event each in Durban, Johannesburg and Cape Town. At the EA forum, industry leaders share their experiences and knowledge of architecture and related topics. Real-world case studies highlight how business problems are solved using the discipline and practice of architecture. The event is obviously also an opportunity for peers, colleagues and industry players to network and collaborate.

Chris Harding

Dr Chris Harding explores the data integration context including why data is integrated, what kind of data is integrated, and he looks at the pain points and issues. In addition, Chis reviews the developments in data integration practices and technology, including Data Virtualisation, Data Fabric, Data Mesh, and Data Platforms.

As part of this presentation, Chris also touches on how The Open Group standards; TOGAF, the O-AA (Open Agile Architecture), and the DPBok (Digital Practitioners’ Body of Knowledge) can help and support architects engaged in data integration projects.
