How to Use Enterprise Architecture for Innovation and Ideation

21 Nov 2019

by Ian Stendera

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 innovative ways Ardoq drives value through change.

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:

  • Surveys

    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. 

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. 

Ardoq Use Case - Innovation & Ideation in Ardoq

Modeling people and connecting them to ideas, capabilities and areas of expertise brings a human dimension into EA and innovation.

Ardoq’s dynamic visualizations, collaborative surveys and integrations with BI tools allow you to meet your stakeholders where they work and tell the stories that matter.
