Plan and optimize transit IT systems: discover ABACUS at APTA 2017

Updated on

The APTA Expo showcases the transport industry’s most innovative solutions and technologies.

Avolution will demonstrate how public transit authorities can use ABACUS to manage legacy systems and plan smooth transitions to new IT systems and applications including IoT.

ABACUS is used by over 2000 organizations worldwide to plan and analyze IT systems to ensure they integrate with and support business strategies and priorities.

Avolution’s Luis Fernandez, said: “Over recent years we’ve worked with some of North America’s largest and most dynamic public transit authorities. Transport industry leaders — as with leaders in many industries – are looking for ways to move quickly to manage the complex process of maintaining and evolving critical systems, on-boarding new technologies and also planning for game-changing trends such as the Internet of Things.

“IT managers don’t want to “reinvent the wheel”, but they do need to ensure that they comply with industry standards. We provide the Transit Enterprise Architecture and Planning (TEAP) framework out-of-the box in ABACUS, and having enjoyed our role in establishing this framework to support our transit clients.

“Our enterprise modeling and data analytics platform – ABACUS – is available as either a desktop or cloud-based tool. It has received enthusiastic responses across a range of industries for its ability to provide dynamic views of IT architecture and systems. At our Avolution booth at APTA we’ll be providing demonstrations of transit industry IT planning, and can walk you through how to bring together and analyze existing data to model and plan your enterprise systems.”

Architects and IT managers can centralize data in ABACUS by roundtripping from Excel, Visio, SharePoint, Google Sheets and CMDBs.  Up to date vendor, versioning and product lifecycles data on over 1.8 million hardware and software technologies is available via the ABACUS Technopedia Adapter.
