Ardoq and EA Principals Announce Partnership

EA Principals partnership announced
Oslo, September 4, 2017

Leading Enterprise Architecture consulting & training firm EA Principals has entered into a partnership with Ardoq. EA Principals will use Ardoq to aid clients in digital transformations, modernization and data warehouse projects, and as a training aid in their courses.

We are proud to announce our new partnership with the leading Enterprise Architecture consulting firm, EA Principals. As a testament to their position in this market, they work with some of the world’s largest companies, including Boeing, American Express, HSBC and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.

Their consulting services aim to establish a well-defined and planned Enterprise Architecture for their clients by redesigning and realigning existing architectures. EA Principals offer public and private training in TOGAF®, ArchiMate®, IT4IT™, FEA/FEAF, and DODAF. Training is created and delivered by EA professionals with at least 15 years of practical experience.

EA Principals will utilize Ardoq’s flexible data models and real-time visualizations to aid their clients through digital transformations, modernization and data warehouse projects, as well as a training aid in their courses.


“I’m very impressed with the very premise behind Ardoq: that architects should be able to create their own “vocabulary”/metamodel for each work group, and then to be able to combine any or all of the metamodels, as needed, into a larger one. This is the type of capability that EA tool vendors have normally made very difficult if not impossible for modelers to do without vendor help and thus at great expense.

In addition, being completely browser-based, Ardoq’s platform and repository of views are easily available (with a good Internet connection) — and the views created by the tool are clean and attractive. In many cases, the Ardoq views are ready for showing to the business without further alterations, which can be a huge breakthrough for the whole discipline. Actually, viewing within the tool will even be advantageous because of the ability to rapidly drill into views, look at things from different perspectives, etc.

Ardoq is sophisticated, so the learning curve needs to be handled carefully with thorough upfront training, but it is a unique offering that could help very large teams model complex transformations.”

Steve Else, CEO, EA Principals

“We’re excited to be working with one of the most recognized firms in the Enterprise Architecture industry. We’re also proud that they see the added value we can provide through our data driven approach to EA, and the opportunities this provides for increased automation, analytics and providing business value from their efforts in mapping companies’ complex digital landscapes. We’re looking forward to a productive partnership!”

Magnus Valmot, CEO, Ardoq
