InQuisient Introduces New Platform Tool: IQ Strategic Planner

Tool helps you align your organization’s Architecture and Spending Portfolio to the resulting objectives and business goals

Reston VA – October 31, 2016 — InQuisient, the premiere provider of advanced data management solutions, is introducing its newest platform tool in beta release this week, for select early adopters and integrators to explore the new technology’s unique capabilities.

InQuisient’s IQ Strategic Planner, designed specifically for enterprise organizations, enables users to link their business vision, goals, strategies, tactics and business rules, then bridges the resulting business specifications to align the EA and IT stack with goals and directives. By tying these disparate sources of information together, your organization can now answer the hard questions with confidence, ensuring the accuracy and value of your strategic plan.

In many organizations, Enterprise Architecture and strategic business goals are totally disconnected. Interactions between services and internal behaviors of services are not described according to strategies, tactics and rules fixed at the business layer. As a consequence, resulting systems suffer from agility issues in aligning service descriptions to changing management decisions.

In order to react swiftly and appropriately to business changes, agile Enterprise Architecture must provide a capability to capture how services realize business motivations, such as vision, goals, objectives, strategies, and mission.

InQuisient’s IQ Strategic Planner solves this problem, by providing a structure for developing, communicating, and managing strategic business plans in an organized manner. Specifically, this web-based platform:

  • Identifies factors that motivate the establishing of business plans;
  • Identifies and defines the elements of business plans; indicates how all these factors and elements inter-relate;
  • Publishes the final result as an easy-to-read document.

Like all of InQuisient’s technology solutions, IQ Strategic Planner is built to work on the InQuisient platform, and is quick to deploy, easy to use, and easy to transition to, while providing the scalability, security, and accountability of a solid enterprise system.

“We’re very excited to bring this unique tool to the marketplace. IQ Strategic Planner is a valuable solution that fills a key gap in strategic planning and communications for many organizations,” stated Scott Dixon Smith, CEO, InQuisient.

“We’ve worked hard to develop a practical solution to this critical challenge, to deliver real value in performance and help our customers enhance their strategic planning process significantly. We believe IQ Strategic Planner is the answer,” said Randy DeWoolfson, Chief Innovation Officer, InQuisient.
