About our project:
The IT landscapes of large companies have grown over decades and are increasingly confronted with problems such as escalating complexity, lacking transparency and an associated gradual loss of control.

In the course of this development, companies are increasingly using IT architecture models to capture required information and to visualize it in a suitable form. Here, major challenges are to analyze and process the usually by hand entered data in a demand-driven manner as well as to keep it up-to-date.

Using the Operational Enterprise Architecture Management (operationalEAM) method, the founding team links the data collected during operative business with the methods of EAM for the first time. Previous solutions relied on manual data input, whereas our software automatically captures the entire IT landscape, merges it with live data and thus ensures its correct and up-to-date exposition and visualization.
