MEGA to Demonstrate How to Increase the Value of EA Business performance improves when EA is combined with GRC initiatives Gartner Enterprise Architecture Summit 2013 Business Wire BOSTON -- May 06, 2013 MEGA, providing unified enterprise architecture and governance, risk, and compliance solutions, will show how companies can combine IT and process architecture initiatives with risk, audit, and compliance activities to accelerate business transformation at the Gartner Enterprise Architecture Summit May 22-23 in Maryland. “Most companies are engaged in separate, but parallel activities in enterprise architecture and risk management,” explained Lucio de Risi, CEO, MEGA. “Both types of initiatives use similar processes and rely on much of the same data, creating duplications, redundancies, and silos of unrelated information that could be more useful. Our customers tell us that bringing these two worlds together creates incredible efficiencies, saves time and money, and improves business decisions.” Industry experts agree that enterprise architecture (EA) programs have become a business asset for organizations because they tie all aspects of the company together. “EA generates a valuable information resource that can be a reliable foundation for sound management decisions. Business results become even more successful when companies add risk management, internal audit, and compliance activities to the traditional EA process of collecting, analyzing, and sharing process data,” continued de Risi. At the upcoming Gartner Summit, MEGA will preview new software solutions that enable the direct connection between EA and governance, risk, and compliance (GRC) activities. Based on a single technology platform, the new EA and GRC solutions will go far beyond what most companies have seen in the industry before. The Gartner Summit is designed for enterprise architects, business planners and strategists, and CIOs and senior IT managers who will learn how to: *increase EA value by using proven techniques for success, *understand the continuing evolution of EA as a strategic management discipline, and *demonstrate to management how EA facilitates organizational change.
