Upcoming seminar will show how to deliver business value through EA
BOSTON, Mass., January 31, 2012 – MEGA executive Richard Winnik will be a guest speaker at the upcoming Smart Enterprise Architecture business breakfast seminar on February 16.
Winnik will talk about how companies can leverage enterprise architecture (EA) programs for better-informed decision-making. He will review the top business challenges for IT, and discuss how CIOs are meeting budget constraints, managing complexity, and reducing risks.
Winnik is a director at MEGA and an expert in EA and process optimization. The event is hosted by PA Consulting Group, a leading management and IT consulting and technology firm. It is open to only 12 individuals and will provide information on the latest successes in EA from Winnik and other speakers, and a roundtable discussion about key business issues.
Attendees will learn about an approach to EA that delivers early results and significant value. Winnik and the MEGA team work with many companies that are leaders in their own respective industries and have implemented EA programs that have helped reduce costs, improve efficiency, and achieve business results. For example, MEGA customer Procter & Gamble won the 2011 Enterprise Architecture Award from Forrester and InfoWorld. Also, another MEGA customer, The Co-operative Banking Group won two prestigious awards for their business and process improvement program: the British Quality Foundation Achievement Award and the North of England Excellence Special Award. Both companies use the MEGA Suite as a foundation for their EA programs.
The MEGA Suite is a comprehensive solution, providing complete capabilities for EA, business process analysis (BPA) and governance, risk, and compliance (GRC). It is regarded as a leading product in the market by many industry analysts, and has long been noted for its capabilities to help enterprises solve challenging corporate issues. The company has been cited in numerous reports on EA, BPA, and GRC tools by several leading analyst firms, including Forrester Research and Gartner, Inc.
“New business challenges and increased competition make it harder for companies to achieve superior business results,” noted Winnik. “When they have an EA program that provides the critical and necessary information about business needs and resources, they can make smart decisions that help meet corporate goals.”
