Avolution, developer and supplier of software solutions for enterprise modelling and metrics-based analysis, today announced that one of the company's founders and principals, Dr. Tim O'Neill, will host an educational workshop on Enterprise Architecture at the forthcoming Ovum Industry Congress in London on 13th - 14th May 2014. The workshop, titled “Enterprise Modelling, Analysis & Presentation - Building a roadmap that delivers business value” will explore how Enterprise Architecture supports business strategy development and execution, and offer ‘real world’ advice on successfully implementing EA practices and tooling.
For the second consecutive year, Avolution is sponsoring the Ovum Industry Conference, which takes place at the Victoria Park Plaza Hotel, London. The event’s Enterprise Architecture workshop, being hosted by Avolution, will outline how an information-enabled enterprise model provides a foundation from which future business decisions can be taken with predictive and quantitative certainty, while also addressing some of the key challenges facing Enterprise Architects in demonstrating business value in a short space of time. Contributions will be made by EA specialists at two of Avolution’s customers; Edward Granger of Aviva and Dimitrius Livadas of BNP Paribas, who, together with Tim O’Neill, will share their experiences of building corporate-wide support for Enterprise Architecture initiatives in a Questions and Answers panel with the audience.
Avolution will also be exhibiting at the event, showcasing the latest release of its flagship product, ABACUS® 4.2, together with the company’s innovative HTML5-based service, ABACUS® Intelligence On-Demand™.
Registration details for the event event can be found at Ovum's website. Avolution’s Priority Code OIC14/AVO can be used for a complimentary ticket.
