Align your data

to your decisions

In many organizations, Enterprise Architecture (EA) and strategic business goals are completely disconnected. As a consequence, results are often delayed, budgets are exceeded and time is wasted. In order to react swiftly and appropriately to business changes, agile Enterprise Architecture must provide a way to capture how services align to broader business motivations, such as vision, goals, objectives, strategies, and mission.

InQuisient’s IQ Strategic Planner can help. IQ’s browser-based software enables you to link your business vision, goals, strategies, tactics and business rules from anywhere. The IQ Strategic Planner also automatically connects any resulting business specifications to align your EA and IT stack with your goals and directives and summarizes the information in an easy-to-understand strategic plan document. By integrating disparate sources of information together with IQ, your organization can see the full, true picture, ask the right questions and get direct answers so strategic plans can be built with confidence and accuracy.
