Blueprinting Services

What is blueprinting? Blueprinting is the process of creating detailed plans or diagrams that represent the architecture, structure, and design of a system, project, or organization. Blueprints serve as visual representations that help stakeholders understand the various components, relationships, and functionalities within a complex system. Blueprinting plays a vital role in architecture design, planning, and decision-making.

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 as in the case of Dragon1 blueprinting.

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 Viewer on your iPad and Smartphone.

The Dragon1 Platform and its specialized tools facilitate the creation, management, and visualization of blueprints and enable close collaborations between us, using the Architecture Repository, Visual Designer, and Data Dashboard.

Dragon1 provides architects, engineers, and designers with a comprehensive set of tools and functionalities to streamline the blueprinting process.

How does it work?

Suppose you and your colleagues want to create one (or all) of the enterprise blueprints, governance blueprints, business blueprints, service blueprints, or IT blueprints:

  • We will first create a project or campaign together with a deadline and plan the activities or schedule the tasks to execute on the Dragon1 Platform.
  • 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 on the blueprint visualization.
  • We will iterate this cycle four or five times in two or three weeks.

Managing Risk, Projects, Strategy, Data, and Change with Business Blueprints.

We will be using all the important features 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. As with the Architecture Repository, we will show you how we do that. Also, the Dragon1 Help and Learn System explains thoroughly how you can make use of the enterprise architecture software. As we provide you with literally everything you need to eventually be able to do it yourself.

  • In the Viewer you will watch the published intermediate versions of the blueprint and be able to comment on it. Also, there are many features to handle the blueprint: filter data, select data, view the changes made, and message directly to people as 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 architecture deliverables on the Dragon1 Platform, working with a single source of truth, thus increasing the quality of data you use.

Business Model Service Blueprinting

Derived from the blueprinting services, we offer a business model service blueprinting. Many small business entrepreneurs that want to consider using the Dragon1 software, 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 what 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 Blueprints

Dragon1 is not only an EAM platform. It is also a method for Enterprise Architecture. As part of that, we have defined five generic blueprints, which we call the Big Five:

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

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