The information systems of major companies and organizations are often extremely complex and made up of hundreds or even thousands of applications, databases, and servers distributed across multiple sites.
These information system components are so inextricably linked and interconnected that it becomes extremely difficult to successfully implement changes within the company - be they strategic, organizational or digital - in order to adapt to evolving needs.
When attempting to successfully implement these transformations, companies are faced with a number of major challenges:
To overcome this problem, our approach ensures a company's information system is described as automatically as possible.
The numerous reference data sources (excel files, application execution logs, infrastructure repositories, etc.) can be reverse modeled, synthesized and integrated into a single repository, to the level of granularity required.
As this information is automatically updated on a regular basis, it can be used to carry out impact and gap analyses that are more comprehensive and more reliable. Consequently, the company's digital transformations are better managed. Above all, they can be implemented more efficiently, in an agile and realistic manner.
In addition, data that doesn't exist already in an existing repository must be entered easily and efficiently. That is the reason why we have chosen the ArchiMate standard (that you can easily replace by your own metamodel), integrated within an intuitive and user friendly environment.
Obeo's solution to support you in the approach outlined above comes in the form of the Obeo SmartEA® tool.
This Enterprise Architecture solution is based on standards: ArchiMate® and TOGAF®, and Open Source technologies. It adapts to your domain to integrate your approach and help you manage your company's strategic changes.
With Obeo SmartEA, Enterprise Architects are freed from the tedious task of manual mapping and can therefore spend more time focusing on analysis and consulting.
