It was our pleasure to have Mr. Damian Lum, Enterprise Architect from HK Jockey Club to speak with us on the Data Governance Experience Sharing on 18 September 2014 (7pm) in the Hong Kong Polytechnic University. Mr. Damian Lum has more that 20 years of Global IT experience, have strong and deep understanding of strategy and enterprise architecture, and have gone through several transformational programs to drive value change.
In this speaker session, Damian took a journey on the importance of data. It forms the very existence of organizations. Data needs to be managed in order to harness value, thus allowing organizations to grow, understand customers better, outperform competitors, and being productive.
The seminar was well received with over 30 IT architects and managers. We had a fruitful interactive Q&A session where Rico discussed with the audience on how to adopt data governance into real life examples.
Experience sharing by HK Jockey Club on Data Governance. Organization must create and sustain value of data through data governance.
Take a journey on the importance of data. It forms the very existence of organizations. Data needs to be managed in order to harness value, thus allowing organizations to grow, understand customers better, outperform competitors, and being productive.
The reality is far from beautiful, since day-to-day priorities require organizations to have to worry about expanding their core business and operating efficiently. Information from mobile devices, big data, cloud services and social media are disrupting the way we do business.

It was our pleasure to have Mr. Rico Chiang, a freelance IT professional and special interest group (ArchiMate modeling language) leader of Association of Enterprise Architects, Hong Kong Chapter to speak with us on the Practicing Enterprise Architecture on 28 March 2014 (7pm) in the Hong Kong Polytechnic University. Rico has over 20 years of application systems development experience, 15 of which are from the real estate industry. Mr Chiang has assumed the role of head of IT department and application development teams of renowned NGO and listed property companies in Hong Kong.
In this speaker session, Rico gave a sharing on his Real Estate Industry EA Reference Model using the Archimate modeling language. The model was developed base on “traditional” real estate business scenario. In order to test Archimate’s ability to support TOGAF, Rico used the traditional model as “as-is” and tried to develop a “to-be” model to address some hypothetical business needs and issues.
The seminar was well received with over 30 IT architects and managers. We had a fruitful interactive Q&A session where Rico discussed with the audience on how to adopt Archimate and EA into real life examples. Our advisor, CK Wong also gave some insights on the EA adoption and the industry common challenges.

Modeling is a very important element of TOGAF. Although TOGAF has been very well established as an enterprise architecture framework and methodology, by itself it does not provide any modeling tool. Until recently, we have relied on traditional business study or system development tools like strategy map, organization chart, workflow diagram, entity relationship diagram, matrix and list etc., which are not specifically designed for enterprise architecture modeling work. Open Group, the same organization who owns TOGAF, took over the modeling language ArchiMate in 2009 and has since developed it into a very comprehensive and easy to use architecture modeling language.p>
