3. Enterprise Architecture

Dragon1 started out as EA Modeling tool using TOGAF, Dragon1 and ArchiMate as methods, frameworks and languages to work with. And it is still a perfect choice to use for EA. Dragon1 is the first cloud-based EA Tool ever suited for LMEs.

On Dragon1 you can design any architecture, visualize for any stakeholder supporting decision making and create 2d and 3d building blocks and user defined symbols for any type of architecture in an organization and publish them for reuse by others.

4. Business Process Modeling

Dragon1 supports BPM Modeling to the max with BPMN, but also with EPC (Event Process Chain). And you can also make the standard diagrams more communicable by adding some Dragon1 architecture visualization aspects to it.

5. Content Creation and EA Repository

On Dragon1 you can do content creation, publishing and sharing by yourself or in a group/team. You can create text documents with pictures and export it to MS Word, and you can present documents and export them to PowerPoint.

On Dragon1 there are over 250 default entity classes, like product, service, process, application, computer, etc., you can administer information for in an EA Repository.

If you create models, views and visualizations with information of the stored entities, you can insert the models, views and visualizations in your text document and presentation documents.

Not only application models and process models can be generated and created beautiful on Dragon1. You can also generate and create nice looking and strategically very important visuals of any other model or content you can think of on Dragon1.

On Dragon1 you can create clickable maps of any kind of information together with popup dialog showing more detailed information about a selected item.

7. Business Analytics, Dashboard and Performance

Dragon1 enables you as user to create and generate any kind of report you like on any kind of data you like. If you want to create a data visualization or graph based on imported data, you can. If you want to enter manually data and use it to create a comparison of the data for certain aspects, you can.

On Dragon1 it is possible to setup and publish your own management dashboards and visualize and monitor the enterprise performance.

8. Creating and Managing Catalogs

On Dragon1 you can enter a software application or a business process or lists of applications and processes. But you can also create and manage catalogs of applications and processes in order to publish that information in such a way more reuse of that information is established. That requires obviously a lot of information to be stored. But here the catalog application comes into play.

The catalog application enables a large group of people to collaborate on filling or stimulating to fill up the information for the catalog. If a manager notices that an application that is very expensive is not hardly used, and hardly any information is known about it, how will employees start to use the application or managers start to reuse the application?

Example catalogs created by users are: Incidents & Problems List, Products and Service Catalog, FAQ, Software Application Guide.

9. Enterprise Search & Content Viewer

When Dragon1 contains a lot of process and application information and more about your organization, looking up the data can become hard. Dragon1 Enterprise Search enables you to find quickly any data in the software tool based on tags, categories, name and description search. Just like you are used in Google.

Only if you have published content on Dragon1 to be found by others (inside or outside your company) it can be found by them, compliant to your publishing rules.

The Content Viewer tool can be used by people to view publicly published (static and interactive) content without having to login in. Content can also by published privileged and private, which means you still have to login.

10. Business Portal and Knowledge sharing

On Dragon1 we have the tool (application) called Resource Center. That is in fact a wiki-like mini website. This Resource Center you can use to put knowledge (of people, about or in the organization) and background information on how you would like people to use when working on Dragon1.

If the collaboration platform for instance is used as EA Modeling tool, then the Resource Center could contain information and downloads on Mission, Vision, Strategy, Projects, etc. You can also use the Resource Center as your intranet, extranet, company wiki or as your employees business application portal, such as the Dragon1 catalogs you have defined per business function.
