Dragon1 - How it Works

Create, collaborate and share integral innovative solutions very easy. Dragon1 gives you the ability to save a lot of time and resources.

Dragon1 offers you a six step approach:

  1. Normally one to five persons (the content creators) of an organization get user licenses for the Professional Edition and form a team.
  2. You as user login and personalize and organize your digital workplace on Dragon1 with the tools, services and data you need for your work.
  3. On Dragon1 you fill the EA repository by uploading or importing data or enter it manually. this data you will use to create models, views and visualizations (diagrams) with.
  4. On Dragon1 you use the visual designer to create static and dynamic Business Diagram. With dynamic Business Diagrams you work with view template, so you do not have to redraw a diagram when the data in the model changes.
  5. On Dragon1 you make the diagrams available (publish it) only for those who should be able to see it (and that could be only, your team member or maybe even the whole world).
  6. Content viewers will use the published business diagrams and other content types to take and support their decisions and also on Dragon1 give you feedback on the diagrams.

For people who want to promote or advertize their work, they can create an ePortfolio on Dragon1 and make it available on search engines like Google.

Some content users (like managers in an organization) have people external to the company (consultants) who create once content (like Business Diagrams) for them and maintain the content for them or hand over content maintenance to people within the organization. Both can be done on Dragon1.

Just get an account for Dragon1 and Login. You will be able to use Enterprise Architecture to create a architectural diagram in no time.
