Radical changes to technology, culture, politics or communications enables new stakeholders in various markets to suddenly change the world you live in. As such, it is now more important than ever before to consider the entire architecture and the ecosystem of your enterprise when deciding your approach to business, technology and strategy.
What it means for you
Enterprise Architecture (EA) provides holistic views of an organization with graphical and textual descriptions of strategies, information, systems, resources and processes, and the relations between these. EA can become the basis for organizational changes in the same way that an architectural plan guides any building project.
Strategic difficulties for an organization using holistic models can arise if workers and management drown in endless detail, instead of seeing the big picture. How does the CRM system, for instance, help drive mission-critical organizational strategies? Can data be shared between the CRM and the ERP-systems? How do logistical processes relate to partner programs? How does the organization prioritize different projects?
How we can help
QualiWare Enterprise Architecture provides a modeling environment that graphically represents all the integrated EA dimension, and is compatible with a vast array of different frameworks. Due to the Suite’s object-based nature, any single object can be related to any other within the architecture. An entire organization – including strategy, business and technology – can accordingly be captured, analyzed, and changed through one integrated, holistic model.
The Collaboration suite will enable you to communicate the EA and any changes that might arise via acknowledgement and subscription features, accompanied with an integrated statistics engine to help you keep track of how well the information is being communicated throughout the organization. Additionally you can gather feedback from the whole organization in the form of change requests, comments and ratings structured via the governance workflow engine.
QualiWare even enabled delegation of modeling responsibilities within for the EA. Web Object Editing and Web Modeler can be used to, for example, grant specific domain area experts the ability to provide the needed information directly into the repository.
