Avolution recognized as a Leader in 2018 Gartner Magic Quadrant

New Gartner research again positions Avolution in Leaders Quadrant for Enterprise Architecture Tools

Gartner Inc., a leading industry analyst firm has recognized Avolution as a Leader in its Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Architecture Tools*, published 22 October 2018 for its ABACUS platform. ABACUS supports architects and digital business managers as they work to marshall information on IT and business infrastructure, processes and goals, and manage it strategically.

Gartner explains that the Leaders in the 2018 Magic Quadrant “demonstrate clear support for delivering business-outcome-driven EA, modeling and analysis. The Leaders also demonstrate a clear vision of the direction and maturation of the EA discipline, as well as its relevance for digital business today and in the future. The Leaders are responding to the needs of leading EA practitioners that Gartner highlights in its research.” *

Avolution’s Dr Tim O’Neill said: “We’re proud to be recognized as a Leader once again and continue to work closely with our expert customer base to support them in understanding, analysing and communicating about their architecture and strategy. With the latest release of ABACUS our focus is on making sure IT and business information is connected and accessible across the business and providing tailored analytics which allow teams to stress-test existing models and business strategies.

O’Neill continues, “Architects need to build a solid data foundation to answer day-to-day questions using data integrations. But the real key to jump-starting success is to embed architectural insights, data and reliable analysis where it can support decision-making day-to-day.

“Department heads, project and program managers, cybersecurity professionals, innovation managers, application owners – all are key to business-wide missions such as tackling technical debt, cybersecurity, compliance, and exploiting new digital opportunities. For them, ABACUS dashboards and reports provide details of real-time connections between applications, systems, technology and processes, plus dependencies, costs and risk assessments.”

Avolution was the first EA vendor to use a graph database, which is beneficial for enterprise architects who want to map complex businesses and relationships between entities. Avolution also supports digital business design principles, metrics-based analytics and ideation analysis algorithms that enable users to set goals and metrics for cost and performance.
In June 2018 Avolution was cited in Gartner’s Market Guide for Technologies Supporting a DTO (Digital Twin of an Organization). **

ABACUS is currently available for both for on-premise, cloud (as a browser-based web-app), or hybrid deployments.
