April 2020 Event - Summary



Digital First

April 27 - 29,  2020  Now an Online Event



Event Summary

Business and IT leaders are facing a transition from Digitization to Digital - the radical, fundamental change towards becoming a digital enterprise. Traditional approaches and industry frameworks for IT management are being challenged both by new technologies that enable dramatically lower barriers to digital value delivery, and by new practices like agile product management that make use of this technology to give a market edge. Executives, managers, and practitioners are looking for practices that help them make sense of the landscape they find in organizations re-orienting themselves to deliver digital products and services - to become a "Digital First" organization.

The Open Group Digital First virtual event will bring together industry experts who will share their best practices and success stories that will help your organization become "Digital First" - please join us!



To: All Speakers, Members, Attendees, Guests, Partners, Sponsors, and Staff of The Open Group

Given the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic, our primary consideration is the health and safety of our staff, Members, sponsors, and all of our event attendees. As a result, we have transformed our upcoming event in Mumbai, India to a virtual event. The theme of the event is “Digital First”.

Our physical conferences and Member Meetings have been consistently improved over many years to become the world-class events for which we are known. Our virtual events will also become the world-class events that you have come to know and that you deserve. It’s difficult to think of substituting face-to-face interaction, and we look forward to safer, calmer, times when our physical events can resume. In the meantime, however, we also look forward to attracting a significant community of virtual attendees to our events over the coming weeks and months. 

This Digital First virtual event will be free to access for all Members and registered attendees. If you are a speaker or participant and have any questions concerning the Digital First virtual event, then please contact us at: events@opengroup.org 




The Digital First virtual event will be free access to all registered attendees. For registration please use the ‘Register Now’ link and indicate the days that you wish to attend.

Immediately prior to the event you will be sent the Webex links for the days that you registered attendance. Day 1 – Monday 27th, Day 2 – Tuesday 28th, and the Wednesday 29th sessions (TOGAF® User Group and Data Science Workshop) will be sent to you as separate links. Please ensure that you use the correct login link for the day that you wish to attend.

As an attendee, you will be able to view and hear all the sessions, though your audio and video functionality will not be active, but questions can be input through a Q&A channel, and there is also a chat channel to talk to other attendees. Sessions will also be recorded for access following the event.

If you wish to attend the Data Science Workshop on Wednesday, please refer to the specific pre-workshop instructions on the Data Science Workshop tab for additional information.

Our intention is to adhere to the timing of the event agenda (posted in GMT), so you will be able to pick and choose sessions during the event and join at the appropriate times.
