Modeling software for Solution Architects

 

Solution Architects design systems to deliver new technologies and capabilities according to business requirements. Architects can take advantage of industry standard frameworks and modeling tools and techniques available in ABACUS.

By pulling together a connected view of business processes, applications, platforms and technology, architects can design appropriate solutions. Present plans using a range of viewpoints, roadmaps, charts and diagrams using interactive dashboards.
