Most Enterprise Architecture tools claim to handle business strategies and business architecture well. Yet, when a client compares IRIS Business Architect to an ‘EA’ tool, they understand a lot better the power of business architecture to communicate adequately with their business and IT stakeholders and deliver customer-driven initiatives in conformity with their organization’s strategies.

IRIS Business Architect allows:

  • Business Model Canvas, Customer Value Maps, Customer Journey Maps, Business Motivation Modeling, and SWOT Analysis, all linkable to various business and enterprise architecture domains;
  • Alignment to BIZBOK, TOGAF, BPMN and BABOK; and yet IRIS Business Architect is very easily customizable;
  • Easy development of detailed scenarios and roadmaps;
  • Only 10 hours of training before full user and viewer autonomy and team collaboration;
  • Quick customizable dynamic diagram publishing from any business architecture element usually generated in less than a minute;
  • Selection of 30 different types of measurements and over 260 types of measurable cross-map relationships;
  • Links easily your roadmap, projects, and sprints to business processes, business requirements, epics, and user stories;
  • Easy one or two day(s) implementation using cloud server hosting; and
  • Intelligent synchronization of users' modifications occurring on applications integrated to IRIS Business Architect, like Aha! Software, Jira Software, Microsoft 365 Office Suite, Microsoft Power BI, Microsoft Project, ServiceNow, Tableau Dashboards, etc.
