IDS Scheer CEO and President to Deliver Keynote at Enterprise Architecture & Integration Summit in Calgary

Thomas Volk to Cover the Role of Enterprise Architecture in Driving Business Performance

IDS Scheer, the leading provider of Business Process Management (BPM), today announced that its CEO and president, Thomas Volk, will be one of the featured keynote speakers at the Enterprise Architecture & Integration Summit in Calgary, Alberta, Canada on Monday, May 12 from 1:15pm to 2:45pm. Mr. Volk will share his views in his session, titled “Driving Change to Improve Business Performance – The Evolving Role of Enterprise Architecture.”

The Enterprise Architecture & Integration Summit brings these two worlds together by providing EA professionals an opportunity to discover various frameworks and strategies for successful business alignment, while integration practitioners will benefit from presentations focused on the Integrated Customer Experience by applying concepts such as Service Oriented Architecture, Integration Competency Centers & Business Process Management to existing information. Other keynote speakers include John A. Zachman,the originator of the “Framework for Enterprise Architecture” which has received broad acceptance around the world as an integrative framework, or “periodic table” of descriptive representations for enterprises.

Mr. Volk will provide market insights and customer case studies on the role of Enterprise Architecture and how it is evolving as companies become more agile. His session will cover the value of an integrated approach to mapping out a full vision of architectures and solutions – based on business processes. Business processes are the core of what enterprises can proactively change, monitor and control, versus the technologies and associated skill-sets from people. Companies are moving out of initial EA pilots and deployments and strategically accelerating their business goals by making EA a core competency to strategically manage IT.

“It is an honor to be among the true pioneers and champions of Enterprise Architecture,” said Thomas Volk, CEO and President, IDS Scheer, AG. “The goal of my presentation is to help business line executives from all sectors leverage their EA to focus on operational effectiveness by removing inefficiencies from business processes and ultimately improve profitability. The key lies in making IT strategic in supporting efficient processes.”

Thomas Volk has been Chairman of the Board of IDS Scheer since September 1, 2006. In addition to his function as CEO and president, he is responsible for global software product sales, corporate marketing and product development. After earning a master's degree in computer science, he worked for many years at Hewlett Packard (HP) where he gained local and global management experience in Europe and the US. From 2003 to 2006, Volk was executive vice president of the American software manufacturer Sybase.

The challenges of aggregating data from consumer-oriented devices, such as wearable technologies and smart thermostats, are fairly well-understood. However, there are a new set of challenges for IoT devices that generate megabytes or gigabytes of data per second. Certainly, the infrastructure will have to change, as those volumes of data will likely overwhelm the available bandwidth for aggregating the data into a central repository.

Cell networks have the advantage of long-range communications, reaching an estimated 90% of the world. But cell networks such as 2G, 3G and LTE consume lots of power and were designed for connecting people.

Cell IoT modules that support narrow-band IoT and 4G cell networks will enable cell connectivity, device management, and app enablement for low-power wide-area network IoT. B...

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
