Understanding is about perspective. New perspectives yield new insights and the ability to see your organization from many perspectives is invaluable. It allows you to make change work for you rather than against you, it allows you to identify opportunities for improvement and it allows you to reduce risk.
Modeling your enterprise in Holocentric provides a framework to relate all aspects of your organization and view it from different perspectives, improving your understanding of the enterprise. Increased understanding means you can:
- Invigorate your strategic decision-making
- Be more confident you are satisfying corporate and IT governance requirements
- Align business processes during mergers and acquisitions
- Provide significant cost savings through more effective implementation
An enterprise-wide view with the ability to view problems, and solutions, from different perspectives also helps you align your IT systems with your business strategies and objectives, ensuring your systems are working for your business.
Change is unavoidable and must be executed quickly and effectively if it is to be an opportunity rather than a risk. Organizations need to understand the impact of change across the entire enterprise and at every level, from business processes through to organizational structure, and from the individual through to complex IT systems.
Holocentric supports enterprise-wide understanding through customizable models which represent and relate all the information in your enterprise. This means:
- The impact of change across departments becomes clear
- Information can be presented at levels appropriate to different audiences
- Differences in context empower rather than inhibit
The cohesive view provided by Holocentric is essential for implementing effective enterprise-wide change.
Holocentric supports standard architectures such as Zachman Framework and the business motivation model from the Object Management Group (OMG) http://www.omg.org/. The Holocentric model is totally customizable, allowing additional extensions, the creation of new relationships and the enforcement of rules. A comprehensive scripting capability provides access to the model so that further intelligence and rules can be incorporated, ensuring compliance with your corporate standards and practices.
Holocentric Modeler provides a single repository which enables all information to be stored and related in a consistent manner. Relationships traced throughout the models to determine the impact of change across all parts of the organization. You can even do what-if analysis and scenario modeling to assess the risk profile of any changes.
