Avolution to showcase ABACUS 4.4 for modeling and roadmapping at Gartner Enterprise Architecture Summit

May 15, 2015

Avolution, leader in enterprise modelling and metrics-based analysis, is to sponsor the Gartner Enterprise Architecture Summit “Architecting the Digital Business Ecosystem”, this year taking place at the Park Plaza, Westminster Bridge on May 20-21.

Gartner predicts that “By 2018, digital business will drive a 500% boost in digital jobs, and the digital business architect will be one of the top jobs in that category.”  The Summit will cover how trends such as the Internet of Things, 3D printing and Big Data will change industries.

Avolution founder Dr Tim O’Neill said: “The growth of digital businesses where IT and business ecosystems are closely linked, robust and agile, really positions the disciplines managed by enterprise architects as central to speed and success.

“We’re excited to be showcasing ABACUS 4.4, which we’ve designed with digital businesses in mind. One of the features architects are most excited about is the ability to map ABACUS data to MS SharePoint Lists to enable enterprise-wide collaboration and gamification of repository data.”

Avolution has been positioned by Gartner in the “Leaders” quadrant of its Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Architecture Tools*. The full ABACUS product suite will be available for delegates to view at the conference and Avolution experts will be available to discuss:

• Developing an enterprise architecture strategy
• Aligning technology and application strategies with your business
