With the launch of the 2019 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Architecture Tools where Ardoq is recognized as a Visionary, we want to shed some light on the ways Ardoq drives value through change and leads the way in Enterprise Architecture innovation.

Enterprise Architects are often the change-makers in organizations and are some of the best poised to drive innovation given their cross-functional perspectives. Ardoq uses the flexibility of our graph technology combined with automation and collaboration to show how you can engage the wider organization and bring a level of structure and data to the innovation process.


Communicating the Impact of Change

In this video we briefly highlight some of the ways you can utilize Ardoq to manage emerging technologies as well as innovation across your organization. Some of the features we will touch upon are:


Personalized UI's are designed to help collaborate and get contributions from the wider organization. In this case we are using them in the ideation process for idea collection and voting. 

Bubble Chart

The bubble chart is tailored to your needs and in this case we are measuring our ideas based on three criteria: Impact, Timeline, and the Number of Votes. 

How do you support your organization through Enterprise Architecture innovation?

By connecting your innovation efforts to your architecture you are empowered to better support strategic decisions on investment and innovation based on the understanding of the impact across your organization.
