North Sydney, New South Wales, Australia, 2013/05/10 - Avolution, a leader in Enterprise Architecture software and solutions, announced sponsorship of Forrester’s Forum for Enterprise Architecture Professionals in London, 10th-11th June - Avolution.com.au.
As part of Forrester’s wider EMEA Business Technology Forum, the Enterprise Architecture Forum addresses the challenges of tomorrow’s digital technology and the need for organisations to develop new strategies, new architectures, new competencies, and new ways to guide their business forward.
Avolution will be showcasing the latest release of its flagship product, ABACUS®, widely recognised as a leader in Enterprise Architecture tools. ABACUS enables a complete enterprise model to be created across people, processes and technology, and for sophisticated analysis techniques to be performed that define optimal investment paths and guide IT strategy.
Recent analyst reviews of Enterprise Architecture Management (EAM) tools have highlighted the configuration flexibility of ABACUS and its powerful analysis capabilities as primary differentiators from other tools. Dr Tim O'Neill, co-founder of Avolution, commented,“Our focus is on providing an agile, open and flexible XML-based solution, with out-of-the-box support for more Enterprise Architecture frameworks than any other tool on the market”. O’Neill continued,“We’ve also developed advanced simulation tools in ABACUS for analysis of architecture metrics such as Cost, Performance and Complexity, each of which can make a vital contribution to decision-making by providing quantitative predications of outcomes”.
The company’s recently launched hosted Enterprise Architecture service will also be demonstrated. ABACUS® Intelligence On-Demand™ addresses the needs of business and IT decision makers to view up-to-date information on corporate resources whenever it’s needed, and on a wide range of devices, via a hosted, web-based service.
The Forrester Forum for Enterprise Architecture Professionals takes place at Lancaster Terrace, London W2 2TY. For more information or to register, simply search 'Forrester Forrum 2013' via your favorite search engine.
