MEGA Customer to Speak at Enterprise Architecture Forum

MEGA, noted industry leader in enterprise architecture (EA), will present a talk at the Forrester Enterprise Architecture Forum EMEA, June 19-20 in Paris, where Nissim Buchs, MD, PhD, chief technology officer, chief architect, and member of the account management board at the HP Banking Service Center in Bern, Switzerland, will discuss how the company used EA to document and support the development of its SOA-based banking software.

Buchs will present Scenario-based Implementation of an EAM Tool at the HP Banking Service Center to conference attendees who are engaged in enterprise architecture, business processes, application development, and content and collaboration at their organizations.

“At the Banking Service Center, we modernized, over the last 12 years, our legacy core banking solution to a new JEE platform using a managed evolution approach, implementing over 600 new application components,” noted Buchs. “Managing this landscape with Excel, Visio, and Powerpoint was not possible. Evaluating and implementing an enterprise architecture management tool using a scenario-based approach allowed us to proactively manage the transformation of this IT landscape. At the conference, we will discuss the best practices and pitfalls learned during the EA implementation.”

Enterprise architecture has become an important means for organizations to successfully develop business agility through business-IT alignment. By using an EA tool to create a repository of shared information that provides transparency across the organization, companies can fully understand which applications support various business processes, where applications are in the IT infrastructure, and which applications meet business needs and provide positive ROI. This allows them to make smarter decisions on IT resources to support important business processes and help meet corporate goals for productivity and growth.

MEGA’s 20 years of expertise in business optimization and EA offers companies a sustainable way to increase company performance. The company is unique in the market by combining EA and business process analysis (BPA) with risk management.

Companies in more than 40 countries worldwide use the MEGA Suite to improve business efficiency, control costs, and minimize risks. Many MEGA customers are leaders in their own industries and use EA to further their corporate goals. Companies that have selected the MEGA Suite are leaders in their respective industries. For example, The Co-operative Banking Group won the British Quality Foundation Achievement Award for process improvement and the North of England Excellence Award for innovation. Procter & Gamble was a winner in the Forrester Research/InfoWorld 2011 Enterprise Architecture Awards.

The company was named a leader by Forrester Research, Inc. in The Forrester Wave; Enterprise Architecture Management Suites, Q2 2011. MEGA was positioned by Gartner, Inc. in the Leaders quadrant of the Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Architecture Tools, published November 3, 2011 and the Magic Quadrant for Business Process Analysis Tools, published December 12, 2011.

At its core DevOps is all about collaboration. The lines of communication must be opened and it takes some effort to ensure that they stay that way. It’s easy to pay lip service to trends and talk about implementing new methodologies, but without action, real benefits cannot be realized. Success requires planning, advocates empowered to effect change, and, of course, the right tooling. To bring about a cultural shift it’s important to share challenges. In simple terms, ensuring that everyone k...
Is advanced scheduling in Kubernetes achievable?Yes, however, how do you properly accommodate every real-life scenario that a Kubernetes user might encounter? How do you leverage advanced scheduling techniques to shape and describe each scenario in easy-to-use rules and configurations? In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 21st Cloud Expo, Oleg Chunikhin, CTO at Kublr, answered these questions and demonstrated techniques for implementing advanced scheduling. For example, using spot instances and co...
Today most companies are adopting or evaluating container technology - Docker in particular - to speed up application deployment, drive down cost, ease management and make application delivery more flexible overall. As with most new architectures, this dream takes significant work to become a reality. Even when you do get your application componentized enough and packaged properly, there are still challenges for DevOps teams to making the shift to continuous delivery and achieving that reducti...
Skeuomorphism usually means retaining existing design cues in something new that doesn’t actually need them. However, the concept of skeuomorphism can be thought of as relating more broadly to applying existing patterns to new technologies that, in fact, cry out for new approaches. In his session at DevOps Summit, Gordon Haff, Senior Cloud Strategy Marketing and Evangelism Manager at Red Hat, discussed why containers should be paired with new architectural practices such as microservices rathe...
With the rise of Docker, Kubernetes, and other container technologies, the growth of microservices has skyrocketed among dev teams looking to innovate on a faster release cycle. This has enabled teams to finally realize their DevOps goals to ship and iterate quickly in a continuous delivery model. Why containers are growing in popularity is no surprise — they’re extremely easy to spin up or down, but come with an unforeseen issue. However, without the right foresight, DevOps and IT teams may lo...
Kubernetes is a new and revolutionary open-sourced system for managing containers across multiple hosts in a cluster. Ansible is a simple IT automation tool for just about any requirement for reproducible environments. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 18th Cloud Expo, Patrick Galbraith, a principal engineer at HPE, will discuss how to build a fully functional Kubernetes cluster on a number of virtual machines or bare-metal hosts. Also included will be a brief demonstration of running a Galer...
DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...
In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Mike Johnston, an infrastructure engineer at Supergiant.io, will discuss how to use Kubernetes to setup a SaaS infrastructure for your business. Mike Johnston is an infrastructure engineer at Supergiant.io with over 12 years of experience designing, deploying, and maintaining server and workstation infrastructure at all scales. He has experience with brick and mortar data centers as well as cloud providers like Digital Ocean, Amazon Web Services, and Rackspace....
"There is a huge interest in Kubernetes. People are now starting to use Kubernetes and implement it," stated Sebastian Scheele, co-founder of Loodse, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at DevOps at 19th Cloud Expo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
Modern software design has fundamentally changed how we manage applications, causing many to turn to containers as the new virtual machine for resource management. As container adoption grows beyond stateless applications to stateful workloads, the need for persistent storage is foundational - something customers routinely cite as a top pain point. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 21st Cloud Expo, Bill Borsari, Head of Systems Engineering at Datera, explored how organizations can reap the bene...
