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

“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

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.

For more than 20 years, companies worldwide have relied on MEGA’s software
solutions to help them improve business performance. Customers include Aetna,
Choice Hotels, Express Scripts, Nissan, Procter & Gamble, and Walgreens.
