Get to Grips with the Complexities of your Company

Companies are constantly faced with new technologies, market demands and changing competitive structures. You need to know in detail the ins and outs of your company so that you can take appropriate measures in good time when dealing with your digital transformation strategy. Transparency of your assets, capabilities, applications, data and services provides you with an efficient enterprise architecture management. EAM is the perfect tool for linking all your company information across all business layers and for providing the foundation for actively controlling the direction in which your company moves.

Enterprise Architecture Management Togaf

Control your Company with EAM

Your company is constantly thrown new challenges. Many of these can be anticipated and planned for, but others are unexpected and require quick reaction times. Essentially what you want is for your company to be ready to act and to always be on top of the complexities faced within your company. The way you act when it comes to the following three aspects is paramount for active control of your company.

Manage your Application Landscape

You need to know how your entire IT and infrastructure can support you when managing your enterprise architecture. You need an application landscape for this so that you can also cover historically different structures. You can then identify, classify, visualize and individually assess your applications and interfaces. Use an application landscape to assign responsibilities. These are key to be able to assess the technical quality of your applications.

Enable Maximum Response Capabilities

When considering business continuity management, it is important that you can guarantee that your company can continue to run even when faced with (un)expected external or internal influences. Regardless of whether faced with defaults, security breaches or pending updates, a fully-transparent enterprise architecture allows you to continuously screen your company. This enables you to identify which effects certain events will have on your software, hardware, processes and systems and be able to know who is affected by these events. Evaluating your applications and systems identifies potential dangers, such as default risks for applications. This allows you to see straight away when you need to make decisions and leaves you ready to act at any time.

Simulate Effects of Possible Changes

A successful, continuous transformation requires you to continuously work on optimizing your company and developing it further. You can only achieve this by making effects of possible changes transparent and running through various scenarios and processes. Strategic architecture management, a precise capability mapping and a suitable EAM tool are the tools you need to simulate changes to your company, enabling you to make the best possible, information-based decisions.
