“We are delighted with the success of our MEGA EA Exchange event which brought together participants from 85 different countries. The conference was of particular interest to companies because, after this period of crisis, they must rethink their business model, organization, and processes as well as their products and services. In this context, the role of the enterprise architect becomes essential to advise companies on how to succeed and secure their transformation,”   explains Luca de Risi, Chief Operating Officer of MEGA.
