Connecting Data, Modeling & Analysis

By pulling together a connected view of business processes, applications, platforms and technology, architects can design strong solutions. Use industry standard frameworks and modeling techniques and present plans using a range of viewpoints, roadmaps, charts and diagrams.

Solution Architecture & Design Steps

Take advantage of major solution, system and software modeling approaches available in ABACUS

  • Scope requirements and system specifications
  • Map out design concepts and target architectures
  • Use AWS, Azure, and other shapes libraries and standards
  • Run analytics to understand costs and dependencies
  • Assess options, run scenario analysis and select the technology stack
  • Collaborate and share data with business architects, application architects, technical architects and enterprise architects
  • Motivate decision-makers with clear presentations about Process Improvements, Cost-Savings, Roadmaps and Growth

Solution & System Design Templates

Make the most of our Solution Architecture frameworks and notationsĀ available out-of-the-box in ABACUS:

  • AWS and Azure shapes libraries
  • The Unified Modeling Language (UML)
  • Systems Modeling Language (SysML)
  • Business Process Modeling Notations (BPMN)
  • Model-Driven Architecture (MDA)
  • TOGAF and ArchiMate
  • Business Capability Modeling
