About Us

Dragon1 is an online collaboration platform enabling business professionals in organizations to do enterprise transformation and innovation in an easy way.


People visualize concepts, business processes, new business models, IT systems, strategy, data, patterns, goals, vision, and much more to gain insight and overview of the desired and undesired cohesion and dependencies inside or outside their organization. With these enterprise overviews, you can analyze, measure and manage (via dashboards and reference models). For example, where are the security risks in the IT infrastructure?

Business stakeholders and enterprise architects are working on projects with Dragon1 - visual enterprise architecture - to finally create improved and new products, services and solutions building their SMART DIGITAL Company or Network.

We develop cloud-based software to enable people and organizations in visualizing information, culture and knowledge to excel in enterprise performance. Go to the demos to experience for yourself how easy we have made it for business professionals to create, steer and manage the organization.

As a software development saas company, we focus on software that increases comfort, ease of use, benefit and control. We do that by developing Enterprise Intelligence Software in a modern way with web applications and business apps.

Our Vision

We, Dragon1 Inc. have a clear vision on four topics: people, organizations, knowledge and information.

First of all, the four topics can and should be visualized at any time for better communication and collaboration.

People often have unused capabilities and competencies

Our vision on people is that they need, can and should be better relocated in organizations using their capabilities and competencies optimally.

Organizations need to use people & information more effective

Our vision on organizations is that they need to use people and information much more effective in order to survive the competition. And that even goes for governmental organizations.

Knowledge needs to be made reusable

Our vision on knowledge is that knowledge present in people's heads and in organizations is not as reusable as it should be. If made more reusable knowledge can be used as a competitive edge.

Information can be of strategic impact

Our vision on information is that most organizations really do not know how they can use the information for their own benefit. If used properly, information (of course made visually) will be of a significant impact because it is used to support every strategic decision to be made.

Our History

In 2005 Dragon1 Inc. started as a consultancy and training organization. The way we have practiced enterprise architecture has always been different from the rest: with a strong analogy to building architecture. This new way of working with Visual Enterprise Architecture, as we call it, we have used to create the Dragon1 open EA Method. Which is beginning of 2013 internationally recognized as an open EA method.

This new way of thinking required a new wave of software support that existing tools could not supply. Dragon1 as a method focuses on designing, conceptualizing, and visualizing views in diagrams, sketches, drawings and photographic images. This brought to start developing Dragon1 as a Platform of which Dragon1 as Enterprise Architecture Tool, Visualize Data Tool, BPM Tool, ArchiMate Tool, UML Tool, Togaf Tool and Project Management Tool are the first product lines in this product family.

We always do research and develop software using Shark, our software development method in close relationship with our customers. We call that Open Innovation. This has brought us to where we are now: a software company focused on collecting and visualizing information for decision support.

Our Mission

We enable EA practitioners to engage the business and CxOs. Business outcomes are the key focus of Enterprise Architecture. You need business people, business language and business visuals to achieve this.

Our Values

We are focused on people and organizations. People values are: professionalizing & knowledge creation. Organization values are: sustainability & information as a key production factor.

Our Ambition

Between now and three years, it is our ambition that Dragon1 becomes the new visualization standard to solve economic, environmental and social issues at a strategic level, building enterprise 4.0.
