Modernization & Transformation

Modernization begins with architecture, which provides a baseline for the current state across people, processes and technology infrastructure.

With support from ABACUS, government architects can outline blueprints for future states and digital transformation. They can assess scenario options and build roadmaps to meet organizational goals.   

Organizations can track legacy IT and infrastructure upgrades, within a governance structure which allows teams to report regularly on costs, risks and project progress and accountability 

Government Enterprise Architecture Frameworks:

Government frameworks and metamodels provide structures and standards which allow architects to quickly document and align IT and organizational goals. Frameworks available in ABACUS include: 

Federal Enterprise Architecture Framework (FEAF)
DoDAF framework
COBIT19 framework
MoDAF framework
NIST framework
MITA Framework
MITA framework

Other frameworks available include TOGAF, ArchiMate, BPMN.

Practitioners can configure, adapt or combine frameworks and metamodels in ABACUS using “drag-and-drop” commands.

Automating Enterprise Calculations with Algorithms

Powerful And Versatile Product With Great Support

“This product is very versatile yet the learning curve for this product is quite reasonable. I found it easy to work with and a responsive and powerful tool for mapping and building our architecture. Being effectively object based meant being able to choose how to enter and edit data in a number of different ways while still maintaining a single dataset. I enjoyed the powerful tools to visually build dependencies.”
