What is a Conexiam Navigate Atlas
Best practice enterprise architecture ensures that the central questions the business needs answered are in focus. To achieve tight focus, you must ruthlessly minimize the information gathered, analyzed, stored and maintained.
Every component that used in the models in an EA repository must be sustained, as well as the relationships and properties. The number of interim architecture states and options analyzed multiplies the information maintenance burden.
Based upon the question an EA Team are asked to address Navigate is custom configured. Core Navigate contains the absolute minimum information. Different purposes call for different data requirements. Conexiam’s specialized Atlases extended Navigate seamlessly.
This method allows substantially smaller information demands and crisp focus on expected value. We gracefully enlarge Navigate’s capacity through specialized Atlases to seamlessly address new critical questions. The exercise is not to gather all the information that might be useful in some potential future.
Each Atlas includes by purpose-specific presentation stock, information gathering templates and Guides that spell out gathering, analyzing and reporting steps. Conexiam’s Guides can provide the steps; they do not provide wisdom, experience, and judgment. We facilitate this with capable resources, mentoring, and specialized training.
Core Navigate contains the absolute minimum information. Specialized purposes, like project and portfolio management (PPM), road mapping, governance, risk and compliance (GRC), business process improvement, service architecture, information architecture, and integration architecture are provided as fully integrated extensions to the core.
Conexiam’s Navigate is a flexible enterprise architecture meta-model and standardized set of templates and deliverables. Specialized Atlases extended Navigate seamlessly.
Navigate Atlas Design
