There is a lot of EA events happening in the next few weeks. The Open Group is having an event that looks to be the most significant in years. They are launching two other practitioner conferences in conjunction with the architecture practitioner conference. The launch of the 1st security and enterprise cloud summit. They will also be using this conference as the release of TOGAF 9. Most of the details are under wraps till the conference on Feb. 2nd though. Once it is released I will provide more details.
Another development in the EA space is the Enterprise Architecture Center of Excellence (EACOE). Lead by Sam Holcman, former president of ZIFA looks to mature the EA certification space. He breaks down the architecture certification space in a nice way with his Top 10 Enterprise Architect Certification Program Characteristics .
The mission of the Enterprise Architecture Center of Excellence (EACOE) is to be an independent industry-wide practitioner-based source for the purpose of advancing the implementation and understanding of Enterprise Architecture:
- To help business and information technology teams understand Enterprise Architecture;
- To help teams implement Enterprise Architectures, and
- To certify Enterprise Architects with consistent measures of success.
They too are having an event in early February, the 9th – 13th. The Enterprise Architect Certification Workshop will be held in Orlando, Florida.
