Utilizing Data in Business Outcome Driven Architecture

21 Nov 2019

by Ian Stendera

With the launch of the 2019 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Architecture Tools where Ardoq is recognized as a Visionary, we want to shed some light on the innovative ways Ardoq drives value through change.

Two topics of discussion in the industry are “how we can be more data-driven” and “how we can use business outcomes to drive our architecture initiatives”. This is not a framework discussion, but a value discussion. 

 

Communicating the impact of change

Communicating the impact architects have on change to the business, is a challenge architects have been fighting for decades. In this video we briefly demonstrate how you can show your stakeholders what the value of change is by overlaying key performance metrics to the architecture and by connecting your business objectives to change projects. As you would expect, this also enables the ability to do proper impact analysis across multiple scenarios. Simply put, enriching your architecture with dynamic metrics gives you a pulse on the impact on the key metrics that drive the business at hand. 

In this video, we briefly highlight some of the ways you can utilize Ardoq to connect your architecture to performance data. Some of the features we will touch upon are:

  • Dashboards
    Use Dashboards to get a high-level overview of your data. Dashboards have widgets that can show data from advanced searches, a report or a survey. You can make several different widgets out of the same underlying data.

  • Automated Views
    All visualizations in Ardoq are automatically generated based on your data, context and perspective. Ardoq can also utilize imported data like performance metrics to transform visualizations. 

  • Open REST-API
    Ardoq's open REST-API enables you to connect Ardoq to any data source you think will enrich your architecture. The API supports all functionality you find in-app and can be used to not only automatically map parts of your architecture but also add dynamic data like performance metrics helping you on your journey to a true DTO. 

Ardoq Use Case - Driving change

Living Dashboards on Performance Data from multiple integrated sources like Salesforces, Development Pipelines, ERPs, IOT sources, etc. 

Connecting your business objectives to metrics bridges the communication of value from the architecture team to business like never before.
