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.

Fundamentally, SDN is still mostly about network plumbing. While plumbing may be useful to tinker with, what you can do with your plumbing is far more intriguing. A rigid interpretation of SDN confines it to Layers 2 and 3, and that's reasonable. But SDN opens opportunities for novel constructions in Layers 4 to 7 that solve real operational problems in data centers. "Data center," in fact, might become anachronistic - data is everywhere, constantly on the move, seemingly always overflowing. Net...
