How to save time automating repetitive tasks in BiZZdesign Architect

Posted by Boudewijn Meyboom on 10 June 2015

Tags: BiZZdesign Enterprise Studio

With the release of Architect 4.7.0 the BiZZdesign tools have become a lot more powerful in automating and scheduling tasks. For a long time now, the BiZZdesign products have had the ability to run analyses and a limited ability to automate repetitive tasks. This is done by using our own scripting language, which is specifically adapted to a working with (architecture) models.

Using this scripting language in the latest release it is possible to automate tasks like importing data from external sources, synchronizing with systems or models, and reporting model contents. By automating the reporting of a model, you can make sure that the information available to the rest of the organization is always the information from the latest model.

Enterprise Architecture and Agile Development: Opposites Attract?

Posted by Marc Lankhorst & Danny Weinberger on 28 May 2015

Tags: Enterprise Architecture Management

Agility has become a key ability of enterprises. The pace at which customers require changes, at which new laws and regulations affect services and introduce processes, and the ease with which competitors can disrupt your business, as Google and Apple do nowadays, leads to tremendous pressure. Pressure to change rapidly, to adopt new technologies, to generate growth, to scale up or to reduce cost. So in many organizations, being agile is as crucial as being able to innovate. Innovation and agility are necessary competences for a sustainable business.

Enterprise Architecture und Agile Development: Gegensätze ziehen sich an?

Posted by Marc Lankhorst & Danny Weinberger on 28 May 2015

Tags: Enterprise Architecture Management

Agilität ist zu einer wichtigen Fähigkeit der Unternehmen geworden. Das Tempo, bei dem die Kunden sich verändern, bei dem neue Gesetze und Verordnungen ihre Dienstleistungen und Prozesse beeinflussen und die Schnelligkeit, mit der Wettbewerber, wie Google und Apple, sie herausfordern, führt allzu oft zu einem enormen Druck auf das Unternehmen. Dabei kann sich der Druck in unterschiedlicher Art und Weise bemerkbar machen, wie zum Beispiel Druck sich schnell zu verändert, oder neue Technologien einzuführen, Wachstum zu generieren oder Kosten zu reduzieren. In Folge dessen ist die Agilität schlichtweg notwendig, um überhaupt mit ständigen Innovationen schnell auf dem Markt agieren zu können. Beides, Innovation und Flexibilität, sind für eine nachhaltige Positionierung am Markt notwendig.
