RAYNHAM, Mass., September 28, 2010 - MEGA and STA Group, both pioneers in business architecture (BA), have announced a partnership to jointly deliver comprehensive BA solutions.
The two companies will collaborate to assist enterprises in developing and deploying BA programs using the MEGA Suite, helping them address the challenges of a complex, rapidly evolving environment.
Business architecture has become an increasingly popular means among large enterprises to
o assess and streamline major investments
o improve customer information management
o consolidate post-merger, post-acquisition business units and product lines
o incorporate outsourced and partner solutions
o conform to compliance and audit requirements
"STA's business architecture consultants are deeply experienced in the creation, management, and utilization of all components of BA in support of business strategic and IT development activities," noted Lucio de Risi, CEO MEGA. "Their work with insurance companies, banks, and in other industries has put them at the forefront of the growing adoption of BA."
MEGA is the first enterprise architecture (EA) provider to offer a dedicated and complete business architecture solution. The solution is based on the MEGA Suite's proven methodology. For nearly 20 years, MEGA's approach has included the business side of architecture - strategy, processes, and organization - as a cornerstone of any EA program. This makes MEGA the most business-focused EA vendor, with many customers, especially insurance companies, already using the solution.
"We evaluated several options and found that the MEGA Suite is the best solution for BA," explained Greg Suddreth, BA practice director for STA Group. "The modeling capabilities are especially important for business architects."
MEGA International provides software solutions for business process analysis, enterprise architecture, enterprise governance, risk and compliance, enterprise risk management, operational risk management, internal audit and compliance, and specialized consulting services. Based on the powerful MEGA Suite technology, MEGA solutions are used by more than 75,000 people worldwide. www.mega.com.
