On 20/21 June the ETIS Enterprise Architecture Working Group held its second meeting of the year kindly hosted by Telefonica CR in Prague. All in all, 17 people from 12 different companies including Deutsche Telekom, Lattelecom, Swisscom, Telecom Italia, Telefonica CR, Telefonica Group, Turkcell, Boston Consulting Group, Agile Birds, Comarch and TNO gathered together to share knowledge and experience in the area of Enterprise Architecture.
Commenting on the successful meeting, Radek Muller from our host said: "It was a pleasure to host the ETIS Enterprise Architecture working group meeting in Telefonica CR and to welcome everyone to our beautiful city of Prague. It was a great opportunity for our team to benefit from the wealth of knowledge shared with many colleagues from different European operators. The meeting was exceptionally productive as the group has a very open and friendly atmosphere which makes the exchange of experiences easy and the discussions highly engaging.”
In addition to the usual topics discussed by the group, the agenda also covered standard business services on the B2B interface, successfully implementing IT process changes, knowledge management of EA processes and the latest EU Regulations updates and expected impact on IT. Additionally, a hot topics session dealing with flat tariffs, de-commissioning of applications, coping with MVNOs and content billing produced fruitful discussions. Two project proposals currently under consideration by the group on M2M Benefit Realisation Management and the EA Complexity Survey were also presented.
The next meeting is planned to take place during the annual ETIS Community Gathering in Riga on 17/18 October 2013. For more information on this activity please contact Terje Tondel at firstname.lastname@example.org
