AMR Research reports on ABACUS
February 06, 2008
One example he cites as best-practice for managing strategic business transformation is Birmingham City Council's (BCC) use of ABACUS to build and maintain their enterprise-wide framework.
In referring to BCC's approach using ABACUS he said: "This pay-as-you-go, real-world approach to EA worked and revealed unexpected insight into the best overall metrics tradeoff."
Avolution provides the ABACUS® solution which is unique to the enterprise modeling space in that it can create multiple solution alternatives (architectures) and then run various simulations (Discrete Event, Monte Carlo etc) against each alternative for metrics such as Performance, Cost and Agility. In so doing it can recommend the optimal path for investment, with predictive and quantitative certainty. More information is available atwww.avolution.eu.
- Build any number of solution alternatives and views all according to a completely flexible meta-model.
- Analyse your architecture(s) for metrics such as; Total Cost of Ownership (TCO), Performance, Availability, Agility and many more.
- View the architecture(s) and the results of any evaluation using advanced techniques such as; 3D, heat maps, capability spaces and trade-off diagrams.
