All organizations have operations. But are you managing and improving it? Smart organizations improve their operations, and the smartest ones do it with an enterprise architecture tool. When you need to be agile in an ever-changing environment, QPR EnterpriseArchitect helps you analyze, plan, and improve your business.
QPR EnterpriseArchitect is intuitive and easy-to-use. Both business and IT users prefer using it to ensure the alignment between operations with their strategy. Thanks to its open metamodel, QPR EnterpriseArchitect is highly configurable for the modeling and analysis capabilities your organization needs.
QPR EnterpriseArchitect is included in Gartner's Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Architecture Tools.
QPR EnterpriseArchitect offers a single design environment to all stakeholders from business to IT. It covers all enterprise architecture layers and dimensions from business models and capabilities to processes, applications, information, and technology. Unlike simple modeling software, all dimensions in QPR EnterpriseArchitect are linked. Therefore, users obtain a holistic view of the architecture, enabling the identification of the full effect of changes and the evaluation of business impact.
QPR EnterpriseArchitect offers a range of analytical features to support decision making. The model comparison shows the gaps between a current architecture and a future one. QPR EnterpriseArchitect’s change impact analysis reports help users understand how a change in one part of the architecture affects others.
QPR EnterpriseArchitect can be linked to your KPIs in order to monitor how fast your EA initiatives can be rolled out. Performance indicators and attributes, the indication of intent and cost attributes can be assigned to modeling objects like applications and technology platforms. QPR EnterpriseArchitect also supports the full implementation of balanced scorecards for strategic planning and follow-up.
A completely open metamodel provides QPR EnterpriseArchitect users with a flexible approach to enterprise architecture modeling. At the same time, it also supports unmatched usability, all the available frameworks, and standards, such as TOGAF®, Zachman, ArchiMate®, and BPMN, as well as QPR’s enterprise architecture based operational development methodology.
Further customizations of the notation, viewpoints, catalogs, diagram types, and matrix views are easy and safe and require no external services.
Modeling and designing with QPR EnterpriseArchitect is made easy as it enables different users to work independently on different enterprise architecture dimensions and combine those later. The flexible way of working enables discovering the best options for operational development. User profile based differentiated access can be provided to different class of information.
With QPR UI, users can browse models, generate and share online reports, schedule reports and export information to Microsoft Office tools. The QPR UI can be used as a communication channel to both restricted user groups and larger public communities. KPIs and other measurements can be easily linked to different models and made visible to different audiences. Commenting is also easy by using web forms. Both the client and the web-based portal can be used as a presentation tool, with navigation between dimensions and layers.
QPR EnterpriseArchitect also addresses other enterprise-level requirements, like integration with content management platforms, reporting services (e.g. SSRS) and company intranet.
“We are using QPR EnterpriseArchitect. Of course, you could do them with PowerPoint or Visio, but it's much handier. That you can connect the things there in the background and that gives value as well.”
- Ville Koivumäki, Head of City Solutions IT, Fortum
"We are using mostly QPR EnterpriseArchitect, that is the core product that we are using. And with that, we managed the modeling, the different levels of strategy business models, operating model processes, IT, solutions and so forth. It's used for communication on different levels of the business architecture, and then also the solution designs and solution architects on the project level."
- Matti Eerola, Chief Enterprise Architect, Head of Architecture and Projects, St1
