Make Smarter Decisions Faster
HoriZZon brings architecture models, business design capabilities and analyses to a broad audience of business stakeholders.
World-Class Architecture Software
HoriZZon is a technologically advanced product that leverages cutting-edge web, cloud, data integration, collaboration, social and analytic technologies. On one hand, it enables architects and analysts to analyze potential change scenarios, design better processes, and assess risk. On the other hand, it helps business stakeholders create, navigate, analyse (e.g. by using color or label views), use on demand charts, or free format explore (impact of change) the content in the repository.
Enterprise Studio is the HoriZZon platform’s modeling environment, and it can run independently as a stand-alone modeling tool for organisations that only require that specific functionality.
Model and analyse the economic community in which an organization interacts with other stakeholder, such as organisations, groups and individuals.
The emphasis in an Ecosystem view is on the following aspects of a business model:
- Key partners and Customer segment as the stakeholders of the ecosystem.
- Value proposition as the values exchanged between stakeholders.
- Cost structure as the monetary values flowing from the organisation.
- Revenue streams as the monetary values flowing towards the organisation.
Business Journey Maps
The Business Outcome Journey Map can help model the business outcomes of an organisation in relation to the value streams that are realising it, to the value propositions they can offer to their customers, and to the analysis of the capabilities, which are making all of this possible. A Business Outcome Journey Map depicts various aspects of a value stream:
- the main outcome and stakeholder of the value stream
- the stages of the value stream
- the goals and outcomes of the different stages and the value propositions they produce
- the capabilities needed for each stage
The Roadmap enables you to model the evolution of your architecture and understand how artifacts will be phased in/out and the impact caused by change. It can be used for simple planning over time and is comparable to working with a Gantt chart, which can be used for scheduling projects or resources.
Enterprise Portfolio Management
Enterprise Portfolio Management (EPM) manages the entire enterprise landscape (projects, assets, services, capabilities etc.) in portfolios. The EPM solution in Enterprise Studio includes support for defining both the assets and the project or program portfolios, and relating them to your enterprise architecture models.
Application Portfolio Management is a common use case for EPM functionality.
Strategies on a page
The Strategy on a Page view can be used to support storytelling by offering the possibility to combine different types of information (strategic, tactical, operational). Information from different strategy and business model views can be combined in this view.
This is often used a landing page to navigate into architecture content, and acts as a dashboards that summarises the architecture on a page.
