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.

When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it’s important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures. In order to do that, you must be tolerant of failures, even in light of failures in other areas of your application. “Fly two mistakes high” is an old adage in the radio control airplane hobby. It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee A...

Containers and Kubernetes allow for code portability across on-premise VMs, bare metal, or multiple cloud provider environments. Yet, despite this portability promise, developers may include configuration and application definitions that constrain or even eliminate application portability. In this session we'll describe best practices for "configuration as code" in a Kubernetes environment. We will demonstrate how a properly constructed containerized app can be deployed to both Amazon and Azure ...
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...
Using new techniques of information modeling, indexing, and processing, new cloud-based systems can support cloud-based workloads previously not possible for high-throughput insurance, banking, and case-based applications. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, John Newton, CTO, Founder and Chairman of Alfresco, described how to scale cloud-based content management repositories to store, manage, and retrieve billions of documents and related information with fast and linear scalability. He addresse...
The now mainstream platform changes stemming from the first Internet boom brought many changes but didn’t really change the basic relationship between servers and the applications running on them. In fact, that was sort of the point. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Gordon Haff, senior cloud strategy marketing and evangelism manager at Red Hat, will discuss how today’s workloads require a new model and a new platform for development and execution. The platform must handle a wide range of rec...
