The SIMEAWG – or Society of Information Management (SIM) Enterprise Architecture Working Group – will host its annual meeting on January 15th, 2013 in Atlanta. This EA Working Group is comprised of about 70 individual members from the national SIM community. This year, the main topic of discussion at the upcoming annual meeting will be SIMEAWG’s publication of its annual research report on Enterprise Architecture practices, which will be based on the data collected in the 2012 survey. Members of the EA and SIM Community look forward to this research report every year. In addition, SIMEAWG will manage and execute the annual SIM IT Trends survey in 2013, which has been a responsibility of SIM headquarters since 1980.
LiquidHub’s involvement in both SIM and the SIMEAWG has continued to grow since our founding. This year, we’re extremely excited to announce that Bill Peterson, a Senior Principal Consultant at LiquidHub, has been named the 2013 SIMEAWG chairperson. Bill will work with the rest of the leadership team to set the direction for the group’s objectives and efforts over the next year. In addition to chairing the group, LiquidHub is well represented with five other LiquidHub Associates as members.
LiquidHub’s leadership position in SIMEAWG reflects our dedication to the field of Enterprise Architecture. Next-Generation Enterprise Architecture is one of LiquidHub’s core disciplines, and is one major factor that fuels business transformation. Bill’s involvement and leadership efforts in this group showcase the type of Associates that work at The Hub.
The Society of Information Management (SIM) Enterprise Architecture Working Group (SIMEAWG) is a SIM Community of about 70 individual members from over 30 organizations. The group is focused primarily on defining and advancing Enterprise Architecture as a practice in order to help enable leaders and organizations to improve their effectiveness and contribute to an organizations success. The group includes leaders in the field of Enterprise Architecture, including John Zachman and Leon Kappelman.
As a working group, the SIMEAWG meets bi-monthly, alternating between on-line and in-person meetings. The members identify and share processes, methods, tools, concepts, and best practices to enable IT organizations to understand, create, and manage EA in partnership with the business. This helps these same IT organizations substantially enhance the way they manage change, reduce complexity, reengineer processes, plan, strategize, govern, manage projects, and deliver value.
