This book captures and communicates the wealth of architecture experience Capgemini has gathered as a member of The Open Group – a vendor- and technology-neutral consortium formed by major industry players – in developing, deploying, and using its “Integrated Architecture Framework” (IAF) since its origination in 1993. Today, many elements of IAF have been incorporated into the new version 9 of TOGAF, the related Open Group standard. The authors, all working on and with IAF for many years, here provide a full reference to IAF and a guide on how to apply it. In addition, they describe in detail the relations between IAF and the architecture standards TOGAF and Archimate and other development or process frameworks like ITIL, CMMI, and RUP. Their presentation is targeted at architects, project managers, and process analysts who have either considered or are already working with IAF – they will find many roadmaps, case studies, checklists, and tips and advice for their daily work.

The International Telecommunication Union (ITU) and the TM Forum have provided reference solutions that are broadly recognized and used throughout the value chain of the telecommunications industry, and which can be considered the de facto standard. The book describes how these reference solutions can be used in a practical context: it presents the latest insights into their development, highlights lessons learned from numerous international projects and combines them with well-founded research results in enterprise architecture management and reference modeling. The complete architectural transformation is explained, from the planning and set-up stage to the implementation. Featuring a wealth of examples and illustrations, the book offers a valuable resource for telecommunication professionals, enterprise architects and project managers alike.

The Manager s Guide to Web Application Security

Author: Ron Lepofsky
Publisher: Apress
ISBN: 9781484201480
Release Date: 2014-12-26
Genre: Computers

The Manager's Guide to Web Application Security is a concise, information-packed guide to application security risks every organization faces, written in plain language, with guidance on how to deal with those issues quickly and effectively. Often, security vulnerabilities are difficult to understand and quantify because they are the result of intricate programming deficiencies and highly technical issues. Author and noted industry expert Ron Lepofsky breaks down the technical barrier and identifies many real-world examples of security vulnerabilities commonly found by IT security auditors, translates them into business risks with identifiable consequences, and provides practical guidance about mitigating them. The Manager's Guide to Web Application Security describes how to fix and prevent these vulnerabilities in easy-to-understand discussions of vulnerability classes and their remediation. For easy reference, the information is also presented schematically in Excel spreadsheets available to readers for free download from the publisher’s digital annex. The book is current, concise, and to the point—which is to help managers cut through the technical jargon and make the business decisions required to find, fix, and prevent serious vulnerabilities.

The Integrated Reporting Movement

Author: Robert G. Eccles
Publisher: John Wiley & Sons
ISBN: 9781118993743
Release Date: 2014-10-20
Genre: Business & Economics

An in-depth, enlightening look at the integrated reportingmovement The Integrated Reporting Movement explores the meaning ofthe concept, explains the forces that provide momentum to theassociated movement, and examines the motives of the actorsinvolved. The book posits integrated reporting as a key mechanismby which companies can ensure their own long-term sustainability bycontributing to a sustainable society. Although integratedreporting has seen substantial development due to the support ofcompanies, investors, and the initiatives of a number of NGOs,widespread regulatory intervention has yet to materialize. Outsideof South Africa, adoption remains voluntary, accomplished viasocial movement abetted, to varying degrees, by market forces. Inconsidering integrated reporting’s current state of play, theauthors provide guidance to ensure wider adoption of the practiceand success of the movement, starting with how companies canimprove their own reporting processes. But the support ofinvestors, regulators, and NGOs is also important. All willbenefit, as will society as a whole. Readers will learn how integrated reporting has evolved over theyears, where frameworks and standards are today, and the practicesthat help ensure effective implementation—including, but notlimited to an extensive discussion of informationtechnology’s role in reporting and the importance ofcorporate reporting websites. The authors introduce the concepts ofan annual board of directors’ “Statement of SignificantAudiences and Materiality” and a “Sustainable ValueMatrix” tool that translates the statement into managementdecisions. The book argues that the appropriate combination ofmarket and regulatory forces to speed adoption will vary bycountry, concluding with four specific recommendations about whatmust be done to accelerate high quality adoption of integratedreporting around the world.

Knowledge Sharing in the Integrated Enterprise

Author: Peter Bernus
Publisher: Springer Science & Business Media
ISBN: 9780387266084
Release Date: 2005-09-20
Genre: Business & Economics

Enterprise Architects, in their endeavor to achieve Enterprise Integration, have limited guidance on how best to use Enterprise Models and Modeling Tools to support their practice. It is widely recognized that the practice of engineering enterprises needs a number of models, but how to maintain the relation between these models with ease is still a problem. Model interoperability is an issue on multiople counts: - How to interchange models between enterprise modeling tools? - How to maintain the interdependencies between models - whether they describe the enterprise on the same level (but from different points of view), or from the same point of view (but on different levels of abstraction and granularity)? - How to maintain a coherent and evolving set of enterprise models in support onf continuous change processes? - How to use and reuse enterprise models as a knowledge resource? The answers to these questions are of great importance to anyone who is implementing ISO9001:2000 requirements, whether through using enterprise architecture practice or not - although it can be argued that a well executed architecture practice should satisfy ISO9001 without additional effort. This volume attacks the problem on three fronts: 1. Authors working in international standardisation and tool development as well as in enterprise modeling research present the latest developments in semantic integration; 2. Authors who are practitioners of, or conducting active research in, enterprise architecting methodologies give an account on the latest developments and strategic directions in architecture frameworks and methodologies; 3. Authors who use or develop information integration infrastructures present best practice and future trends of this aspect of enterprise integration. Chapters of this book include contributions to the International Conference on Enterprise Integration and Modelling Technology (ICEIMT'04), and those presented at the Design of Information Infrastructure Systems for Manufacturing (DIISM'04) Workshop. While DIISM is traditionally oriented at supporting manufacturing practice, the results have a far greater domain of applicability.
