Workshops modularized / Website for Bookings

My plan to return beginning of July seems to fail once again. I used the time to modularize my online workshops and to set up a booking page (using Microsoft Bookings) (still in progress).

This gives more flexibility to the attendees and me. Users/attendees can build own workshop programs. The module descriptions are currently in English. The language in the online workshops (German / English) will be based on the attendees. The booking page can be found on Feedback wishes and many participants are welcome.

Meanwhile, the Languages are separated. Customers can book modules according to their language.

BCS/Qualiware Webinar 25.1.2018, 3 pm CET

unternehmensarchitekturQualiware and BCS - Dr. Juergen Pitschke started a cooperation. Two important elements in the area "Enterprise Architecture" come together. Qualiware offers a leading software solution, supporting different notations - from BPN to DMN - and offering essential functions for creatinng, maintaining and using an Enterprise Architecture. This inckudes not only creating such models on different levels of abstraction, but also functions for creating reports and analysis or web collaboration. BCS offers a comprehensive method, containing proven working techniques securing long term usage and maintainance. Together we want to support customers in Germany in a better way.

In our joint webinar "Creating a structured business architecture with QualiWare" we present us and show how you can benefit. The webinar will be held in English.

Look forward to meet you

The Conference Season 2017 is over

The Conference Season 2017 is over. I could speak as well in London at EACBPMEurope 2017 and also on BBC 2017 in Florida. The used slides can be found at "Presentations". Sure the slides are only a part of the story, more important is the spoken word.
You will find more posts about the topics of the presentations here soon. I'm happy about questions and feedback.

Both conferences offered an accompanying program with an exhibition of tool vendors. You can see the differences between both conferences. Maybe this is more related to the profile of the organizators and not real market trends.

London had a focus on "Workflow"-Tools. New vendors as Dell Boomie were present as established vendors as Aura. The discussion about "No-Code" or "Low-Code" is less important, even if it disappeared.

Other topics could be seen on BBC 2017 in Florida. Sure you can see that BBC is the official conference of IIBA. The question of "automation" was important there too - automation of processes or of decisions.
Bevor I can automate, I have to understand it, analyze it; if I automate, I have to measure to improve or optimize.

A buzzword at BBC was "Business Agility". John Zachman, Ron Ross, and Roger Burlton presented the "Business Agility Manifesto". I'm sure not everybody agrees with every statement (me too) - but the intention is to facilitate discussion.

My presentations fit this. Before we implement, analyze, measure, or optimize Business Solutions - we have to describe (or model) them. This doesn't mean visual modeling only, but describing in the widest sense. How can our Business Solutions be agile if our models/descriptions are not agile? Often our "culture" is a hurdle in developing agile models and solutions.
