Press release from: Avolution

A digital twin of the organization helps EA and technology innovation leaders prioritize, guide, plan, monitor, analyze and scale complex initiatives.

Gartner Inc., a leading industry analyst firm has listed as a Representative Vendor enterprise architecture and digital strategy specialist Avolution in its July 2018 “Market Guide for Technologies Supporting a DTO”*. A DTO is a digital twin of the organisation.

Avolution was cited for its ABACUS toolset. ABACUS supports enterprise architecture modelling and analysis, and digital strategy and operations.
Gartner analyst Marc Kerremans explains in the Guide that “the implementation of a digital twin is an encapsulated software object that mirrors the characteristics of a unique physical object or a unique collection of physical objects. The minimum elements of a digital twin include the model of the physical object, data from the object, a unique one-to-one correspondence to the object and the ability to monitor the object. But it is possible to extend the digital twin concept to complex entities, such as cities, enterprises and countries, to meet specific financial or other decision-making processes.”

A digital twin of an enterprise can play a key role in managing IoT initiatives, in digital optimization and navigating complex digital transformation missions.

Avolution’s Dr Tim O’Neill said: “The ability to create a digital “avatar” of your enterprise and use it to test the outcomes of the different strategies and scenarios under consideration is hugely compelling.

“Architects and digital business managers understand that this ability to assess and rework legacy and business-critical systems and processes in-flight, whilst dovetailing with newer digital technologies is one of the forces shaping the future of business.

“In ABACUS, practitioners are able to build a dynamic software model of an enterprise – a digital twin. Key to this is being able to integrate both business and technical data quickly, and to select views of the model and provide analysis and data visualizations of metrics such as Cost, Risk or Reliability – which tell a clear story to stakeholders.”

The Guide identifies eight major use cases for Digital Twins, which Enterprise Performance Optimization, Customer Experience, Digital Business Optimization and Transformation, Operational Excellence, Logistics and Manufacturing, Program and Portfolio Management, Operationalization of New Capabilities Such as IoT and Business Process Outsourcing.

Data integrations available in ABACUS include Google Drive, SharePoint and MS Office (inc Excel and Visio), and enhanced integrations with complementary market tools, such as Qlik, ServiceNow and Technopedia. ABACUS also offers a REST API.

Avolution is recognized as a Leader in 2017 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Architecture Tools**. And ABACUS received the highest product scores for all three Use Cases in the 2018 Gartner report “Critical Capabilities for Enterprise Architecture Tools”, Speeding Time to Value, Making Smarter Decisions Faster and Bimodal Enterprise Architecture***.
