Communication is essential for success in every part of business. And as time scales get shorter and the margin for error reduces, the team that can rapidly and accurately communicate what they know will have a competitive advantage. The right tools used by the right people with the right data can transform project and programme delivery.
Typical organisations, in many industry sectors, have centres of excellence (we call them silos) where great work is done, but sharing that information across different departments or teams is usually painful. The information needs to be re-formatted between functions, maybe with the addition of new data, so duplicate (but subtly different) versions of the data are created as the information 'matures'. Across a number of disciplines the various sources of data start to multiply... projects develop... change requests are introduced... business cases are challenged, and eventually the multiple versions of the truth become unmanageable.
And the result? Errors creep in, inconsistent information and assumptions are used and then rework is required. Leading to delays, increased costs and poor quality.
Our Experience with Enterprise Architect
Using Enterprise Architect, organisations can reverse this trend. EA provides a location where several teams can have a single repository for all project data, rather than each team creating a new set of data (with overlaps, duplicates and/or contradictions) for each new report or piece of analysis.
Adding Model Expert to EA delivers a new level of quality to models, as distributed teams can be sure of modelling consistently so that their model can be understood and re-used throughout the organisation.
With the addition of eaDocX: document excellence it is easy and quick to create focussed documents that are formatted precisely to suit any and every audience. And with eaDocX: document collaboration those documents can be published online to be viewed on any web enabled device. In this way, EA model data can be shared with all stakeholders: other teams, management, suppliers and customers, for interactive reviews, approvals and compliance.
