Key Benefits

The database repository makes sure your data is of higher quality and you reuse data more often. The fact that Dragon1 is online will increase your sustainability and the fact that you can visualize architecture in a context of strategy and transition enables you to control risks more. And because we have added gamification, Dragon1 is also more easy to use than other tools. So you have every reason to choose Dragon1 as your EA Tool, BPM Tool or PM Tool!

  • Increase operational result by reducing process dependencies using overviews.
