“Edit” and “View” Diagram Modes

Both architects and business users can switch easily between “Edit” and “View” modes when working with web-based diagrams.

  • In “View” mode, you can pan, zoom, and access the edit properties window, but not move, add, or delete objects
  • “Edit” mode allows you to edit diagrams by moving, adding, and deleting objects

Connection Details & Permissions

Users can now drill into connection details by right-clicking on connections in diagrams. In ABACUS, connections are more than lines, and allow property details to traverse architectures.

Administrators now have increased control over user permissions to edit diagrams and modify properties.

Analytics Updates, Including Cost Attribution Calculations

Enhancements to technical and financial analysis capabilities

Users are now able to make calculations on properties in connections, and attribute values to and from connections.

For example, an architect can use ABACUS to allocate the cost of an application to the departments which use it. They can attribute current cost percentages, and forecast costs into the future.

Advanced Search of Architecture Content


By applying specific filters, users can generate more precise, efficient search results. 

Users can filter based on various combinations of architectures, elements, elements types, and their properties using the interactive UI or filter directives. For instance,  identifying only “As-Is” architectures, then searching by Name.
