We start 2012 with a special spotlight on the value of enterprise architecture.
Demonstrating the business value of enterprise architecture has been a long-standing challenge. We’d like to add our own thoughts to this discussion, so we have created a video to share some understanding of what EA can add to your business. Customers who are engaged in day-to-day EA activities know the benefits from the use of such practices, so we asked them to express their own perspectives.
We invite you to join them and share your own insights into what makes these EA initiatives such valuable investments for your organization.
We are eager to promote your vision in our next edition of the EA Exclusive!
To make MEGA more accessible to all, we can be followed on several social media platforms:

Where We Have Been
Report from the Complex Systems Design & Management Conference
MEGA participated in the Complex Systems Design & Management (CSDM) 2011 conference in Paris December 7-9.
The conference was organized by the non-profit association, the Center of Excellence on Systems Architecture, Management, Economics & Strategy (CESAMES). It was attended by academic researchers and representatives from corporations who are working on complex industrial systems engineering. This year, the conference attracted 250 attendees.
The first day of the conference was dedicated to presentations and discussions on the social and industrial contexts of complex systems engineering. It consisted of a number of high-profile seminars that gave the participants a clear vision of the domain and its themes: sustainable cities, smart grids, the electric vehicle ecosystem, and more.
The second day was devoted to systemic methodologies and fundamentals emerging from academic as well as industrial environments. It was centered on how the architectural paradigm helps planners think about complex systems in a unified way.
The third day was dedicated to contributed talks from industry and academia.
MEGA is a sponsor of CESAMES, a partner of the CSDM conferences, and a member of the CESAMES steering committee.
