Press QualiWare Once again named a Leader in Gartner Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Architecture Tools

QualiWare is Positioned for its Completeness of Vision and Ability to Execute, as We Are Once Again Recognized as a Leader for EA Tools

In QualiWare, it is no secret that Gartner Inc. is quite the authority within the field of business research and guidance. We are therefore very excited, whenever they choose to recognize QualiWare in their research, and this October is particularly special to us, as we are once again included in their 2018 Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Architecture Tools. 

What do you need from an effective and value-adding EA tool?

In their research, Gartner lists 8 core capabilities that EA tools and platforms must include: 

  • Repository 
  • Modelling support
  • A range of decision analysis capabilities
  • A range of presentation views that may include
  • Administration features
  • Frameworks and standards
  • Usability

In their second core capability, Modeling support, Gartner brings up three points; they include: the four main viewpoints of EA, both future- and current-state architectures, capturing detail from the level of business strategy to technical implementation, and ecosystem modeling (“inside out,” “outside in” and “outside out” architectures). With QualiWare X, we have paid great attention to these capabilities this year, and will continue to, in the future. One approach to highlighting this to our network was with the creation of our video “QualiWare X - Take Your Business to the NeXt Level”. 

Continuous innovation QualiWare X

QualiWare’s founder and CEO, Kuno Brodersen, believes that it is a major asset and a necessity for any company to have, or acquire, an all-encompassing tool, that enable management of not only what is, but what will be.

“What you need is a tool that is ready for tomorrow, and the day after that. With QualiWare X you get an all-encompassing Smart Architecture that is taking you to the next level, by supporting an efficient use your organization’s surrounding Business Ecosystem, Digital Twins, Customer Journeys and AI technology”.

When it comes to digital business transformations, one of the most important organizational capabilities is to be able to react rapidly to changing market conditions.

Gartner says “ContinuousNEXT is the formula for success through digital transformation and beyond… The five imperatives for CIOs to implement a ContinuousNEXT strategy include: Privacy, Augmented Intelligence, Culture, Product Management, and Digital Twin”, and we see that three of those imperatives (AI, Product Management and Digital Twin) are all part of QualiWare X.

Being included in Gartner’s Market Guide for Technologies Supporting a DTO, earlier this year, serves as a great motivator to continue to innovate.

As the end of the year is approaching, we will continue to enable positive change for our customers and partners and take this recognition with us into the new year.
