Press release from: Avolution

Attendees at the Gartner Enterprise Architecture Summit will learn how to maximize the value and minimize the risks of investments in cloud, big data, analytics and mobility, says Gartner.

Avolution is to sponsor and exhibit at the Gartner Enterprise Architecture Summit “Leading Digital Business Innovation and Transformation”, this year taking place on May 11-12 at the Gaylord National Resort & Convention Center, National Harbor, MD

Avolution’s Vice President of American Operations Grant Quick said:

“Many of the organizations we work with are focused on managing big data volumes well. Particularly given the anticipated explosion in IoT data expected over the next five years. The ABACUS graph database approach gives EAs the ability to future-proof their practice for these challenges. It offers the speed and adaptability that allows enterprise architects to navigate rapidly changing business conditions and large data volumes.

“EAs strengths of data-management, modeling, analytics and roadmapping are also central to a strong short- and medium-term digital business strategy.

“ABACUS offers EAs best-in-class analytics and simulations, based on peer-reviewed algorithms refined by over 15 years of industry-usage. EAs can use ABACUS to calculate a range of critical metrics including TCO, cloud readiness, cybersecurity, as well as undertaking tasks such as application portfolio management and roadmapping.

“We understand that most enterprise architecture teams also need to collaborate on data, models and roadmaps across multiple locations and time-zones. For these teams ABACUS 4.5 offers the ability to synchronize and merge architectures within an architecture landscape with confidence.”
