Join the #AgileArchitect generation with Axellience Agile Architecture Factory™

The online, collaborative and graphical solution available anytime anywhere to make business and IT architecture modeling and design activities pleasant and proactive.

THE SOLUTION FOR BUSINESS AND IT ARCHITECTS

There’s an architect in all of us… and we’re not alone.

Tired of running desperately after developers and after obsolete information to update your blueprints, while Ops are already thinking of the next release? Of running after business lines to review process models, while new hires join the company and that the organisation changes constantly?

Thinking a business and IT architecture today means designing it quickly, collaboratively and maintaining it over time. To do so Agile Architecture Factory™ brings you ready-to-use modeling standards and a powerful toolset for your architecture team to update documentation and perform impact analysis.

Welcome to the #AgileArchitect generation!

Now you can share your business and IT architecture design real time with all stakeholders involved in the digital value chain.

The persona model helps define a type of customer, employee or user and give it social, psychological characteristics that are critical to develop new products or services.

Journey mapping allows business architects to graphically depict what steps a customer, employee or user goes through. It also allows to analyse requirements, behavior, expectations and emotions. The resulting journey map model can be enriched with field data to reflect the reality much more acutely.

The navigation between the two models is easy, as well as from journey maps to other architecture and design models (e.g. UML, archimate) to enrich a target architecture documentation.

IT and software architects use OMG’s UML standard to design application, technical components and services.

The graphical environment allows users to easily navigate from use cases to components – class, sequence models… – used to design software and IT solutions architecture.

UML models are easily linked to other models of the business and IT architecture design (Archimate, BPMN…)

Agile Architecture Factory™ ships with native support of the ARCHIMATE standard. This simple visual language and its graphical notation allow to easily communicate with business and technical peers both at a high and detailed level.

It also allows to put changes under control in sometimes complex environments that require to circulate documentation back and forth between architects and devops teams.

Agile Architecture Factory™ supports E/R standard notations for semantic and data models. Architects can automate the generation and sharing of glossaries and dictionaries of business terms used at enterprise level.  

They can also design and reverse engineer data models and link them to other IT and business models, such as UML, Archimate and BPMN.

The DMN standard – Decision Modeling Notation – is available for business architects to design decisions and integrate them into the process and enterprise models. Decision rules are easily entered under diagram or decision table form. They can be used by market rules engines.

DMN-based Decision models are integrated with BPMN process models and the navigation between the two is seamless.

The widely adopter BPMN standard – Business Process Modeling Notation – is available to business and process architects to design target or existing organization processes. Steps, decisions and any information are easily linked to other models such as journey maps and UML or Archimate models.

AXELLIENCE AGILE ARCHITECTURE FACTORY

Axellience Agile Architecture Factory™ allows business and IT architects to work at devops speed and ensure agility all along the design to operations value chain.  

Tools for office automation, enterprise architecture, portfolio management or corporate strategic planning are known to be millstones around the neck: too complex, too slow, too heavy.

Axellience Agile Architecture Factory™ lets architects break down complex, multi-party problems into easily manageable chunks and they can design the required components without loosing the big picture: they become agile and can scale agility depending on organization size and project scope.

Features

Work & Resource Management

The 2-way integration with agile project management tools allows you to track architecture changes, tickets  and action plans until completion.

idees-actions

Actions and Ideas

Capture actions and ideas as soon as they pop up! Reuse them to organize your and improvement requirements and tickets.

Open reporting

With built-in generic indicators and objectives, you use your repository to make well informed decisions based on  ad-hoc reports.

API and Integration

An open, rich API as well as integration functions allow users to build bidirectional integrations with all sorts of tools (testing, code proofing…).

Cloud, Web, Online

No deployment. Immediately available. Automated updates.
Period.

Collaboration

Enjoy co-creation and streamlined teamwork. Use the built-in social, exchange and communication capabilities.

Versioning and time machine

Need to go back in time? The time machine provides built-in history snapshots, animation and traceability. Reusing artifacts is a no-brainer.

Document generation

Automatically document any artifact. Easily create and share reports for cross-silo communication and decision making.

Axellience Business Tranformer Suite delivers 3 main benefits

Agile Architecture, at last!

IT, software and IT architects work as quickly as devops: the entire value chain is agile!

Agile Projects with Co-Creation

Bidirectional integration with agility tools allows users to follow any artifact and action plan across execution via ad-hoc reporting and notification.

Measurability

Inject and collect indicators, objectives and concrete data to make well-informed decision with ad-hoc reports.
