Speeds IT Portfolio Management, Decision Support for Net-Centric Operations

Troux™ Technologies, the leader in Enterprise Architecture (EA) and transformation solutions, will demo the Troux DoDAF Planning Methodology™ and the DoDAF Capabilities Analysis Pad™ – both key components of its Department of Defense (DoD) Transformation Solution – this week at the Spring 2005 CISA Worldwide Conference May 10 to 12 at the Armed Forces Recreation Center ‘Shades of Green Resort’ in Orlando, Florida. The Troux DoDAF Planning Methodology and DoDAF Capabilities Analysis Pad both enable DoD organizations to speed the creation of Enterprise Architectures that support data-centric IT portfolio management and net-centric operations, key focuses of the unclassified Conference.

“These offerings begin to take the DoD Architecture Framework to the next level: to data-driven analysis, ease of use, and greater accessibility for wider audiences,” said Pat Motola, president and chief operating officer of Troux Technologies. “This is fundamental to enabling DoDAF to efficiently and effectively drive DoD investment and portfolio decisions according to the needs of the warfighter.”

DoDAF Planning Methodology

Troux’s DoDAF Planning Methodology provides a DoDAF Planning Model with embedded EA development plans, analysis and linkages to iteratively build the architecture and produce the required DoDAF products on a solid underlying object model.

The DoDAF Planning Model is a Metis visual model, one that comprises a model template optimized for EA planning and a standard Metis object repository, along with a complete project plan for implementing the DoDAF. “All of the mechanisms and processes in the metamodel are geared to speed the creation of an enterprise architecture that supports DoDAF, speeds implementation through automation, and enables data-centric portfolio management,” noted Motola.

DoDAF Capabilities Analysis Pad

The DoDAF Capabilities Analysis Pad provides an intuitive interface designed to increase ease of use, enable ad-hoc and canned analysis, and speed decision-making from DoDAF products and data. It includes the following key features for use by DoDAF architects, analysts and other decision-makers:

  • DoDAF Product Views - A set of selected DoDAF product views easily accessed (for view or edit based upon role) and shown in context with the other products and the “big picture” architecture.
  • DoDAF Configured Analysis - “Business-oriented” questions that answer common inquiries about the dependencies and relationships that exist in the underlying instance data.
  • Ad-hoc Analysis - Interactive queries into the data and visual depictions of the results that allow a user to reach new insights from the data and act accordingly.
  • Reporting - A Quick-access menu to provide easy view and generation of the desired product reports, properties, and relationships.

“Troux and our partners can help customers quickly implement the DoDAF, providing not only the product views as required, but also the deep visibility that stakeholders throughout the organization need to make better decisions,” said Motola. He noted that the Troux DoD Transformation Solution, including the Troux DoDAF Template 1.0, offers a vision for the future, one where architects have the power of analysis and automation without having to endure the burden of manually creating basic product visualization and report generation.

Pricing and Availability

The DoDAF Planning Methodology (including the DoDAF Planning Model) and the DoDAF Capabilities Analysis Pad will be available in June, 2005. Both products combine with the DoDAF 1.0 Template to comprise the Troux DoD Transformation Solution. Pricing will be available in May, 2005.
