erwin Evolve supports IT and business transformation with automated visualization, documentation and enterprise collaboration capabilities that turn EA and BP artifacts into insights for better decisions
MELVILLE, N.Y. – Feb. 18, 2020 – erwin, Inc. today announced the availability of erwin Evolve, a full-featured, configurable set of enterprise architecture (EA) and business process (BP) modeling and analysis tools. The combined solution enables organizations to map IT capabilities to the business functions they support and determine how people, processes, data, technologies and applications interact to ensure alignment in achieving enterprise objectives, including digital transformation, cloud migration, portfolio and infrastructure rationalization, regulatory compliance, mergers and acquisitions, and innovation management initiatives.
“Whether documenting systems and technology, designing processes and value streams, or managing innovation and change, organizations need flexible but powerful EA and BP tools they can rely on for collecting the relevant information for decision-making,” explains Martin Owen, erwin’s Senior Vice President of Product Strategy. “It’s like constructing a building or even a city – you need a blueprint to understand what goes where, how everything fits together to support the structure, where you have room to grow, and if it will be feasible to knock down any walls if you need to. Without a picture of what’s what and the interdependencies, your enterprise can’t make changes at speed and scale to serve its needs.”
The power to adapt the EA/BP platform leads global giants in critical infrastructure, financial services, healthcare, manufacturing and pharmaceuticals to deploy what is now erwin Evolve for both EA and BP use cases. Its unique advantages are:
erwin Evolve 2020’s specific enhancements include web-based diagramming for non-IT users, stronger document generation and analytics, TOGAF support, improved modeling and navigation through inferred relationships, new API extensions, and modular packaging so customers can choose the components that best meet their needs. erwin Evolve is also part of the erwin EDGE with data modeling, data catalog and data literacy capabilities for overall data intelligence.
“Organizational success depends on agility and adaptability in responding to change across the enterprise, both planned and unplanned,” Owen notes. “erwin Evolve enables communication and collaboration across the enterprise with reliable tools that make it possible to quickly and accurately gather information, make decisions, and then ensure consistent standards, policies and processes are established and available for consumption internally and externally as required.”
