“By focusing their teams on answering the right business alignment questions, CIOs can ensure that all parts of their organizations are making decisions that align to the business strategy,” continued Hood.
Austin, Texas (PRWEB) July 8, 2010
Troux Technologies™, Inc., the leader in Strategic IT Planning and Enterprise Architecture software, today announced that it has shipped the next generation of its market leading software product, Troux 9. As businesses increasingly augment their cost-cutting programs with strategic initiatives designed to drive growth, Troux 9 delivers a new set of breakthrough capabilities to ensure IT strategies and resources are aligned to meet market opportunities.
“Over the past few years we’ve worked with hundreds of CIOs from around the globe and we’ve listened to what they need from Troux. Troux 9 reflects this learning and delivers an unprecedented new set of features designed to maximize time to value and maturity for EA and Strategic IT planning initiatives,” said David Hood, chief executive of Troux.
New Insights Focus Business and IT on What Matters Most
For the CIO, Troux 9 delivers new investment alignment reporting that gives visual insight into previously unanswered questions such as “How are my IT investments and projects supporting the business?” Troux 9 answers over 200 of these critical business and optimization questions and by focusing the customer on asking and answering these critical questions, Troux links key Strategic IT Planning and Enterprise Architecture customer success to specific business value.
“By focusing their teams on answering the right business alignment questions, CIOs can ensure that all parts of their organizations are making decisions that align to the business strategy,” continued Hood. “This increased level of focus delivers better results more quickly, saving time and money throughout the organization.”
Patent Pending Technology Drives Faster Program Maturity
Troux 9 includes a number of new features that help to mature EA and Strategic IT Planning programs so they delivery more value, more quickly. For example, Troux 9 includes a patent pending capability that allows managers to ‘turn a dial’ and automatically scale the quantity and detail of fields, forms, reports and visualizations up and down, to match the organization’s business priorities and maturity of their EA programs. This feature saves subject matter experts or ‘information stewards’ from time wasted collecting irrelevant information, preparing irrelevant reports and focusing on irrelevant activities.
With many EA programs collecting information from thousands of sources, Troux 9 delivers dramatic improvements in productivity and time-to-value.
‘My Portfolio’ Drives Data Quality
Troux’s findings from working with over 300 Global 2000 and Federal customers identified many more techniques that ensure information stewards are motivated to keep specific portfolios up-to-date and accurate. For example, seeing exactly how the information they manage impacts the business or seeing how the quality of their data ranks against that of their peers.
The ‘My Portfolio’ features in Troux 9 include these and other capabilities to significantly improve the efficiency and quality of data management. Troux 9 also includes major usability enhancements to the powerful Troux Architect modeling tool.
Troux Clientverse™ Technology Heralds a New Era in Modeling Collaboration
Underpinning the new features in Troux 9 is a breakthrough new modeling collaboration platform known as Troux Clientverse. As organizations mature their Strategic IT Planning programs they need to combine information from stakeholders already using a variety of different modeling tools, ranging from Microsoft Office-type tools to third party and Open Source modeling tools.
Troux Clientverse provides a platform for tool users outside of Troux to continue leveraging the skills and expertise they’ve developed in these tools while sharing and connecting their content to a single view of the enterprise stored securely within the Troux repository. Further, they can then take advantage of many of the enhanced analytic capabilities that Troux provides.
Troux 9 is available now. For more information please see http://www.troux.com.
