Blueprinting Service

What is a blueprint?

A blueprint is a detailed technical design or building plan. Other than a landscape, that is high-level for communication purposes, a blueprint contains detailed information for engineering purposes. A blueprint is not meant to be a communicative visualization. It may of course act as one.

Creating the Blueprint for you in close Collaboration

We have created a service for you, that if you want, we can create a blueprint for you, and you and your team members can give feedback anytime, anywhere via the Dragon1 Content Viewer on your iPad and Smartphone.

The Dragon1 Platform and its specialized tools enable close collaborations between us, like the Architecture Repository, Visual Designer and Content Viewer.

How does it work?

Suppose you want to create an enterprise blueprint, business blueprint or IT blueprint:

  • We will first create a project or campaign on Dragon1 together with a deadline and plan the activities or schedule the tasks to execute.
  • You will then collect the necessary and available data, for instance in an Excel sheet.
  • Next we will upload the data automatically and enrich the data manually.
  • Then we will build a visual blueprint using the data and you will comment the blueprint visualization.
  • We will iterate this cycle four or five times in two of three weeks.

We will be using all the important features in the Dragon1 web application to perform the task:

  • In the Architecture Repository we will upload and import the data. And we will show you how to do it yourself. At any time you can take over this work if you like or want.

  • In the Visual Designer we will build a model using the data, build a view and visualization on top of the model. And as with the Architecture Repository we will show you how we do that. Also the Dragon1 Help System explain thoroughly how you can make use of Dragon1. As we provide you with literally everything you need to eventually be able to do it yourself.

  • In the Content Viewer you will watch the published intermediate versions of the blueprint and be able to comment it. Also there are many features to handle the blueprint: filter data, select data, view the changes made and message directly to people part of the workflow for the product.

Often a blueprint is part of a bigger plan. If you prefer you can create in time all the deliverables and a complete presentation on the Dragon1 platform, working with a single source of truth, thus increasing the quality of data you use.

Business Modeling Service

Derived from the blueprinting service we offer a business modeling service. Many small business entrepreneurs that want to consider using Dragon1, want to use it for business modeling. But it can take a lot of time if you have to start this journey on your own. If you call us and explain us how your business model looks like and what you want to use the diagram for, we can save you a lot of time.

The Big Five

Dragon1 is not only a modeling and presentation platform. It is also a method for Enterprise Architecture. And part of that we have defined five generic blueprints, we call the Big Five:

  • #1, Enterprise Blueprint
  • #2, Governance Blueprint
  • #3, Business Blueprint
  • #4, Information Blueprint
  • #5, Technology Blueprint

Dragon1 PRO and Dragon1 ENTERPRISE users have access to the templates. These templates speed up the work for creating a complete enterprise architecture significantly.
