Launch of the Open FAIR certification for people program

At the end of last year, The Open Group announced a new Open FAIR Certification Program for Risk Analysts, bringing a much-needed professional certification to the market that is focused on the practice of risk analysis.

Both the Risk Taxonomy and Risk Analysis standards, standards of The Open Group, constitute the body of knowledge for the certification program, and they advance the risk analysis profession by defining a standard taxonomy for risk, and by describing the process aspects of a rigorous risk analysis.

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?
