Launch of the Open Trusted Technology Provider™ Standard (O-TTPS) accreditation program

The O-TTPS Accreditation Program enables organizations that conform to the standard to be accredited as Open Trusted Technology Providers™.

The O-TTPS, a standard of The Open Group, provides a set of guidelines, recommendations and requirements that help assure against maliciously tainted and counterfeit products throughout commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) information and communication technology (ICT) product lifecycles.

The standard includes best practices throughout all phases of a product’s life cycle: design, sourcing, build, fulfillment, distribution, sustainment, and disposal, thus enhancing the integrity of COTS ICT products and the security of their global supply chains.

This accreditation program is one of the first of its kind in providing accreditation for conforming to standards for product integrity coupled with supply chain security.

Using Business Architecture to Enable Customer Experience and Value Strategies

Date: 20 February, 2014 @ 20.00 (GMT)
Speaker: Craig Martin, Chief Architect at Enterprise Architects

Digital disruption is shifting business model design from a focus on product profitability to a stronger focus on customer experience and value. This webinar will look at environmental pressures and identify how to use business architecture and business design to address these changes.

Join Craig Martin, Chief Architect at Enterprise Architects as he covers business architecture for digital strategy, customer-driven value chains, re-writing of the 4P's of the marketing mix, and the 9 laws of disruption and how they affect business model design. Will enterprise architecture as we know it become a commodity too?
