Eskom is to present on its history of solution architecture modelling at the next Enterprise Architecture Forum at the end of July.

Krystal Raptopoulos, solution architecture modelling lead analyst at Eskom Distribution, will speak in Johannesburg, Centurion and Cape Town on how the parastatal turned UML (the Universal Modelling Language) into a useful tool for business and developers.
"UML is often viewed as staid, even boring," says Paul van der Merwe, consulting manager at Real IRM, which as the local representative of The Open Group is hosting the event across the country from 29 July to 1 August.
"However, Eskom Distribution maximised its value in using it to model the application integration space, and Krystal will show just how the company did it."
This presentation follows on from Shannon Naidoo's recent, well-received presentation at the Enterprise Architecture Practitioners' Conference at Emperors Palace in Kempton Park.
Raptopoulos will place particular emphasis on the usage of the solution architecture domain, and present examples of solution models which represent various views of the application and/or integration. ARIS is the modelling tool of choice at Eskom Distribution.
