Transformation to agile standardization


Tuesday’s “agil standardization” session shows us why we need the transformation of the current standardization and demonstrate an agile method how we can pick up all requirements and intelligence, to describe the new architecture of internet of things.

  • Introductory speech

First Ewa Zielińska (PKN) will show us why we need a new type of standardization, call it “creative” standardization. She will talk about the challenges we will have to face: to transform (or to prepare) our system to handle the creative and traditional standardization together.

  • Methods of use case workflow visualization

Mathias Uslar (OFFISE) will demonstrate and visualize the use case approach with the reference-architecture-toolbox. He gives you a overview of agile standardization and how to identify the requirements and gaps of transformation in the digitized world.
