Important Features of the platform

Dragon1 is not a tool or management suite. It is more. It is a digital platform with specialized tools, a digital workplace and with social and knowledge networking features.

  • 100% online

    Dragon1 was, is and will be only build for the internet, cyber space or the cloud. Dragon1 is a 100% online solution. And that brings you all the benefits of working online, in cyber space and in a cloud.

  • Virtual Team Collaboration

    Of course you can work on your own Dragon1, but the real power of the platform is unlocked if you work as a team together on creating products.

    Whether you are in different locations, countries or areas on the world. Sharing content, helping each other, providing feedback, taking over work, planning activities. All these things are done easily on Dragon1 as a team.

    Many organizations collaborate with consultants, suppliers and clients from their ecosystem to innovate and transform.

    Dragon1 is built to support that way of working.

  • Import and Re Use

    How annoying is it to start over again if you start using a new solution? On Dragon1 that is not the case. If you choose Dragon1, you will see you can reuse all the work you have done before. Import is Dragon1's middle name.

    We even have built a 1-2-3 instant diagram generation feature for you based on imported data from XLS, CSV or XML files.

  • Dynamic Views

    How often have you created a picture or presentation that was already outdated the moment you presented it? Or that people use an old version of your picture or presentation and in the end taking decisions based on wrong data?

    On the platform this problem is history. No longer will your stakeholder have outdated, incorrect, inconsistent or old versions of data, pictures and presentations.

    With dynamic views you create automatically updated filters on top of the models. So if the data in your models change, the views and visualizations of your models change too.

  • Digital Presentations

    Do you still cut, copy and paste data, docs and diagrams from one application to another to present it? That is no longer needed. You just build a presentation (a set of frames) on Dragon1 and present it from the content viewer. Take a look here at some presentations.

  • The Modern Business Professional

    Profile yourself online with your visual portfolio, your unique skills and great experience. Make yourself known to the world and standout from the crowd online.

    You can create the best professional presentation of yourself and your company. Give it a try.

  • Landscaping, blueprinting and roadmapping

    If you need to create a model or a view like an application landscape, business blueprint or technology roadmap use the repository, designer and content viewer.

    Start with creating, for example, an application landscape and later on start on creating a process landscape. After that, you can integrate them together.

  • Strategic Architecting

    Design new business concepts and model and visualize the principles of these concepts as the way things work. A principle details diagram is the perfect guide for implementing a new concept or technology completely and successfully. Make it actually work and produce benefits in this way.
