BOSTON -- March 24, 2014

Business transformation expert Philippe Vandeginste from MEGA will speak at
the OMG Business Architecture Innovation Summit March 25-26 in Reston, VA.

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. A
range of specific MEGA software tools helps companies with corporate
governance, business strategy execution, IT strategy delivery and digital

“We were an early proponent of using business architecture practices to
improve enterprise performance. We help our customers create and implement
robust transformation initiatives, which are critically important today as the
pace of change continues to accelerate,” noted Lucio de Risi, CEO, MEGA.
“Incomplete information is one of the reasons transformation programs fail, so
we provide the capabilities for companies to acquire the necessary,
comprehensive information that helps them achieve business transformation
