How can I better use data in my evaluations?

Our Business Capability Modeling module comes complete with pre-configured fields which are not just static, subjective attributes, but automatically calculated aggregations based on what your capabilities depend on. This means that you can roll up things like cost or complexity across your architecture providing better insights into alignment and investments.

How can I ensure my whole organization has the right picture of our capabilities?

What do you really want from your visualizations? Accurate data, Easily maintainable, Easily Understandable and Securely Distributed. A.K.A. Ardoq’s living presentations.

With Ardoq’s living presentations, you can manage your data in Ardoq, and embed your presentations throughout your organization without the fear of out-dated views supporting critical decisions.
