Execs discuss special solutions for defense and security industries
LONDON, February 22, 2012 – MEGA, noted industry leader in enterprise architecture (EA), is sponsoring the Integrated EA Conference in London March 6-7. Ian Halliday-Pegg, UK managing director, MEGA, and Antoine Lonjon, MEGA’s chief methodology officer, will discuss how to develop and deploy architecture and design of IT systems and ‘systems of systems’.
Organisations worldwide, especially government agencies and the defence industry, have used the MEGA Suite to successfully describe, plan, and manage these ‘system of systems’ architectures. These involve very large system engineering projects, such as defence or security contracts, and enormous public/private projects, where multiple contractors must collaboratively build specialised components to be integrated into a ‘system of systems’.
Organisations use the MEGA Suite to
• Align the contributions of multiple stakeholders into a ‘system of systems’
• Assess the impacts of change in the architecture
• Ensure compliance with required standards in a collaborative project environment
• Establish capability-based planning to ensure incremental delivery of solutions
The model-driven system architecture and design capabilities of the MEGA Suite enable business architecture development, solution design, and master planning across industries and for government agencies at all levels. The company’s solution complies with specific standards and frameworks that meet unique requirements, such as in the defence and security industries. In this case, the MEGA Suite helps organisations collaboratively describe and manage large system architectures in accordance with internationally recognised standards such as NATO Architecture Framework (NAF), Ministry of Defence Architecture Framework (MODAF), and Department of Defence Architecture Framework (DoDAF). The company offers specific products for these needs: MEGA for NAF and MEGA for DoDAF.
MEGA’s products are reinforced by 20 years of enterprise architecture expertise from MEGA’s international team of consultants, who provide a broad understanding of architecture challenges in the various dimensions of human factors, technology utilization and enterprise transformation. They help manage the changes linked to organisational performance improvement projects.
