erwin Enterprise Architecture (EA), formerly known as Casewise, combines business process and enterprise architecture allowing the organization to develop business process and enterprise architecture models that drive business transformation using a data-centric model-driven approach. On-premise, customizable enterprise architecture software.
erwin EA is an on premise, customizable enterprise architecture solution that enables business and technical stakeholders to get a complete and contextual view of their enterprise assets. Erwin EA manages change in an efficient and cost-effective way while mitigating the risks inherent in transforming the digital business. erwin Business Process (BP) software creates the documentation and graphical roadmap of how a business works, detailing the tasks, responsible parties, and data elements involved in processes and the interactions that occur across systems, procedures, and organizational hierarchies.
Support for proven enterprise architecture methodologies, frameworks, and modeling languages — including ArchiMate, DoDAF and/or TOGAF — is available as templates through erwin Consulting Services for erwin EA or built in for erwin EA Agile, as are customization capabilities for the former to fit customers’ existing enterprise architecture models. With a centralized repository of architecture assets, either on-premise, hosted, or in the cloud, component reinvention is minimized, and reuse maximized for greater agility. Everything is in one place to design, maintain, and respond to business and IT change while driving digital business transformation.
The visualization of process value chains, business process models, procedure documents, RACI matrices, system interactions, and business hierarchies drives the creation of enterprise process libraries. This supports training and onboarding and contributes to targeted and holistic process improvements. An overarching view of processes as they exist individually and as they fit together across the organization paves the way to providing insights about the people, data, and technology that could be affected by changes to them, and vice versa. In addition, potential issues can be addressed before they jeopardize small-scale process optimization efforts and large-scale digital transformation exercises.
With templates for Lean and Six Sigma process improvement practices, businesses can position themselves to achieve maximum efficiency and quality. Following these practices can bring numerous benefits to organizations, from better financial performance to greater customer satisfaction to improved ability to meet production quality metrics.
