Architecture management

Whether you are an enterprise, solution, business or IT architect – you always require an up-to-date model of your architecture. This is most efficiently created by automatically merging data from existing sources. This way you get high quality data capturing your architecture as a whole.

How to manage architectures with Qbilon

Suitable views and reports for all users

Employing data from different abstraction levels enables the creation of views for any stakeholder, e.g., charts for management reports, tables for audits or detailed architecture diagrams for project managers. Due to qbilon’s flexibility, they’re all based on one coherent data basis. 

Replacement of legacy systems

Replacing a legacy system is a challenging task. An upfront analysis with Qbilon ensures that all dependencies are considered while the risk of side effects is minimized. On top of that, the automatic data capturing allows the progress to be monitored from an architectural point of view.

Harmonization and standardization

Organically grown IT landscapes are characterized by their variety of tools and technologies. Qbilon provides the means to capture this variety, e.g., with meaningful charts. By employing graph views, assets can easily be located while table reports can be used to derive responsible owners.

Compliance with architecture guidelines

Validating guidelines can mean checking simple naming conventions, ensuring the existence of mandatory properties or verifying the fulfillment of architectural patterns. Guidelines can also be monitored using coloring rules that allow to indicate an assets’ degree of guideline fulfillment.

Keep an eye on dependencies

Qbilon is the best tool for capturing and understanding dependencies among IT assets. There are two reasons for that: First, the automatic data capturing ensures that all existing dependencies are detected. Second, graph visualizations are the best way to oversee architectures by employing features like neighborhood analysis, conditional coloring, automatic layout and node grouping.
