The Open Group San Diego 2011
February 7-11, 2011

Objective of Meeting

The Open Group Conference San Diego 2011 took place at the Marriot San Diego Mission Valley.

The conference gathered to discuss themes along three primary tracks:

  • Architecting cybersecurity
  • Enterprise architecture and business transformation
  • The business and financial impact of Cloud Computing


Each day of the three-day conference included a mix of plenary presentations, with industry leaders from near and far sharing their insights on the day’s theme; and a set of parallel tracks examining specific areas in depth. The various tracks delivered presentations by enterprise architecture professionals from both vendor and customer organizations; and provided experience-based insight into the approaches and methods that have proved most effective for developing architectures around the world.

The presentations can be accessed from the links below under separate daily headings:
