Vandeginste, a performance improvement authority who works with Fortune 100 companies, will speak about “Business Architecture: Turning Change into a Strategic Opportunity”.  According to the OMG, business architecture is being used by organizations to improve strategy deployment, organizational design, initiative planning, performance analysis and business transformation initiatives. It provides a single, comprehensive view of an enterprise, showing the tightly-woven links between business processes and IT resources.  “For successful transformations, it is important to thoroughly assess the company’s strategy, strengths, and weaknesses, as well as the opportunities and risks presented by the changes,” explained Vandeginste. “The process of building this single view of the company requires the correct decision-making tools, ones that allow for accurate assessment of the expected benefits against the objectives.”  “Having this perspective before beginning a digital transformation program is essential, because these projects involve profound changes across the company and to IT systems, which are the lifeblood of today’s enterprises,” Vandeginste continued.  The MEGA team works with CIOs on digital transformation programs by providing enterprise software that acts like a business GPS, helping them navigate through a changing landscape and make better, faster decisions throughout the transformation process, all while taking risks and corporate governance issues into account. MEGA’s software was developed specifically to solve today’s enterprise governance challenges. The company offers solutions that boost innovation and performance and meet the toughest business and IT challenges.
