MEGA Webinar to Explore the Value in GRC and Enterprise Architecture Connections

MEGA, which provides a united solution for governance, risk, and compliance (GRC) and enterprise architecture (EA), will host a Webinar on January 31, 2013, where David C. Baker, principal at PwC, and Colin Tong, manager at PwC, will speak about the links between EA and GRC and how companies can use both together to help establish safe, profitable, and stable enterprise operations.

EA and GRC share common goals and aid business leaders in achieving strategic objectives. When properly executed together, these disciplines can increase an organization’s ability to measurably create, grow, and safeguard shareholder value,” Baker noted.

In the Webinar, “Separated at Birth: EA and GRC”, Baker and Tong will focus on how companies can apply EA techniques to help reduce the complexity often associated with risk management and compliance. The Webinar will also show how architecture can be used as a means for governance and management of risks and compliance, and to improve operational performance.

Attendees will learn:

  • The similarities in how EA and GRC consider the enterprise
  • How EA models can support GRC activities
  • The role EA and GRC play together in breaking down information silos

Registration is now open for the January 31, 2013 11 am EST online event.

DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...

Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations. Until now. As the cloud toolkit to analyze data has evolved, GPUs have stepped in to massively parallel SQL, visualization and machine learning.
