About the Event

The Open Group INITIATE Workgroup:  Creating Next-Generation Architects: A Roadmap to Fruition

On February 16, 2022, The Open Group announced the India Academic Initiative in Architecture (INITIATE program. A special dedicated Work Group has been established to drive the programme with the active support of our member community. The Work Group will focus on integrating Enterprise Architecture as a subject into the academia and enabling institutions to design, develop, and deliver courses on EA based on the TOGAF® Standard and other standards of The Open Group at graduate and post-graduate levels. INITIATE will take advantage of a vast body of knowledge that has been adopted in the global ecosystem of The Open Group.

In this event, the INITIATE Work Group will bring together the experience, journey, and practices of thought leaders and experts from Industry, Government, and Academia, in building the next generation of architects and how academic institutions can adopt and develop a sustainable program in architecture based on industry best practices and standards.
