Melville, N.Y. – January 23, 2019 – erwin, Inc, the data governance company, today announced that Manuel Ponchaux has joined the company as Director of Product Management, responsible for the company’s enterprise architecture (EA) and business process (BP) solutions.
In today’s modern, competitive business landscape, it’s imperative that employees, business leaders and decision makers can understand their systems, technology and processes and how people interact with them. EA and BP tools are crucial to aligning the business and IT, and helping both leverage their data to mitigate risk, and enable innovation and digital transformation.
“We’re thrilled to welcome Manuel in this role to further innovate around our EA and BP solutions as part of the erwin EDGE platform,” said Martin Owen, erwin’s Senior Vice President of Product Strategy. “EA and BP modeling are critical in providing insights that impact whether an organization can execute against its strategy and produce the desired outcomes, including any data-driven initiative.”
Ponchaux has more than 15 years of experience in EA and product management, most recently overseeing enterprise, solution, infrastructure and data architecture at Travis Perkins PLC. Before that, he was a senior consultant at IBM focused primarily on EA. Prior roles involved customer technical support, technical sales and product management. Ponchaux holds degrees in computing, applied mathematics and economic sciences, as well as certifications in EA, project management and Agile software development.
“EA and BP tools are critical for the business and IT to communicate with each other, as well as shaping the enterprise management and governance picture,” notes Ponchaux. “I’m excited to join the erwin team to help customers succeed in their digital and business transformation initiatives and embrace their role in shaping competitive advantage.”
erwin EA shows organizations where innovation is lagging or how it can be used to drive competitive advantage. Businesses can define application capabilities and interdependencies within the context of their connection to enterprise strategy to prioritize technology investments so they align with business goals and strategies to produce the desired outcomes.
Business process modeling is also vital because it defines how the business operates and ensures employees understand and are accountable for carrying out the processes for which they are responsible. With erwin BP enterprises can clearly define, map and analyze workflows and build models to drive process improvement, as well as identify business practices susceptible to the greatest security, compliance or other risks and where controls are most needed to mitigate exposures.
