Over the last ten years I have focused on cloud computing and seen increased adoption of cloud in enterprises. Companies large and small have adopted Software as a Service (SaaS) and traditional private/public PaaS/IaaS cloud services to expand their digital footprint. In doing so they depend increasingly on an ever-larger supplier community to obtain the digital support required to run their business.
I recently wrote a blog entitled ‘Why the Court of Master Sommeliers Made the Right Decision’ in which I stressed the importance of program integrity in the world of certification.

Well the short answer is practice and experience!

For many of us, each new year is an occasion to look back at the previous year’s accomplishments, as well as look forward to what’s to come over the course of the next year. For the past three years since I took over the reins as CEO of The Open Group, I’ve made it a tradition to take advantage of the new year to do just this, as I’m sure many of you do both in your professional and personal lives.
With the passing of each year, I’m always struck not only by how quickly it goes by, but how many new opportunities arise throughout the year for The Open Group that none of us ever could have predicted. What’s nice for me, from where I sit, is that there is no shortage of new opportunities for us as an organization to do what we’ve always done—to help organizations come together to solve their business problems through open standards.

Continuous learning and development – it’s a phrase that can either fill you with joy or fear. Why? Because we all know that the evolving technology landscape, driven by the advancement of AI, IoT, social media, mobile, andcloud technologies mean that our skills always need to be up to date. This is increasingly important as CIOs look to their internal teams to become experts on architecting for cloud environments and cutting through the market hyperbole. We are constantly asked to provide the frameworks, models, and maps that will work as part of a future forward EA strategy.
