LONDON, April 6, 2015 – Enterprise transformation experts will convene in Madrid April 20-23 for The Open Group Summit, where Abdallah El Kadi, CEO of Shift Technologies, MEGA International’s official partner in the Middle East, will speak on The Journey of Digital Transformation.
Recognized with several awards for his work in business and IT strategy, El Kadi is one of the leading enterprise architecture (EA) practitioners in the Middle East and a recognized international speaker.
Shift Technologies is a pioneering IT and business consulting firm that helps government agencies and commercial enterprises transform best practices concepts into effective organizational capabilities. Shift and MEGA partner in several countries in the Middle East, helping organizations in that area solve new digital challenges, seize market opportunities and improve the customer experience.
El Kadi will discuss how organizations can evolve from traditional to digital businesses. His talk will outline the key challenges in that transition and the best practices that companies employ to successfully undertake digital transformation.
“Companies are challenged by the evolving nature of the business ecosystem, increasing pressures resulting from technology-enabled paradigm shifts and ever-changing customer behavior,” noted El Kadi. “Organizations are forced to adopt new transformation capabilities that enable them to dynamically reinvent their services, realign their business operating models and rescale their business infrastructure.”
MEGA solutions help executives gain important visibility and insight into their company’s strategy, processes, risks and resources. The software provides the means to gather, record and analyze a complete and interactive view of the whole business, creating a ‘single source of truth’. This comprehensive information can be shared by employees, work groups and managers across division lines or geographies to increase collaboration and aid managers in making sound business choices and better decisions in today’s complex business environment.
With this information as a foundation, CIOs can more easily lead the business and digital transformation efforts of their companies.
By providing unified solutions powered by its HOPEX platform, MEGA has moved ahead of traditional EA domains. The company’s integrated solutions eliminate silos of effort and information, and reduce the barriers to enterprise governance.
MEGA has long been recognized for innovation in business solutions by industry analysts. Gartner, Inc. has named MEGA as a leader in its enterprise architecture (EA) Magic Quadrant reports for six consecutive years.
The Open Group, host of the conference, developed The Open Group Architecture Framework (TOGAF), a proven EA methodology and framework used to improve business efficiency. MEGA TOGAF 9 on HOPEX is essential for enterprise architects, and eases the adoption of TOGAF through its graphical, easy-to-use, model-driven environment, helping organizations navigate high-impact change initiatives.
