What’s the easiest way to get from A to B? This is a question we ask ourselves regularly in a variety of contexts. Crucial to a successful transformation from our baseline (A) to our target state (B) is an comprehensible route map and these 5 stages.

Focus on the Essentials for an Agile Organization with Prolaborate.
With Prolaborate, you maximize the value of enterprise architecture, lay the groundwork for decisions, and get the fastest from A to B.

The Transparent Organization

From A to B with Enterprise Architecture and Prolaborate

Creating Transparency

Simplifying Architecture with Prolaborate

You have EA models in your company and would like to make them more transparent, more visual and more tangible for different target groups and information requirements? We show you with your existing EA models how to solve this task with Prolaborate.

Your Challenge

How does the information we elaborate with Enterprise Architecture get to our stakeholders? How can data be provided easily, quickly and consistently?

Our Method

3 steps for more transparency in your architecture models.

  1. model review and efficiency of the modeling approach
  2. implementation of Prolaborate
  3. definition and configuration in Prolaborate

Your Benefit

  • Information is automatically aggregated – for clearly defined information needs
  • Information exchange at the right time, with the right level of information for the next decisions
  • Fewer reviews, fewer error sources and fewer tool breaks due to the integrated way of working

Recognizing Potential

Visualizing Business Capabilities and Business Services in the Enterprise Cockpit in real-time

Data is the new gold and acts as a live ticker of every company. But how can it be visualized in such a way that it actually brings benefits to the respective stakeholders? We’ll show you how to accelerate the business by bringing data and information together. By visualizing business capabilities and business services with Prolaborate, you can see the potential in your business.

Your Challenge

There is a lot of knowledge in your company, stored in data that shows the current state of the company. But this is often only available in a decentralized manner or in a version that is not aggregated and comprehensible to the respective stakeholders. As a result, valuable information is not available in the depth that would greatly simplify both day-to-day business and strategic decisions.

Our Method

2 steps for the “live ticker” of your company

  1. Develop a model that contains information relevant for the stakeholders
  2. Definition of the necessary steps in Prolaborate to be able to answer the desired questions of the stakeholders

Your Benefit

You can let different stakeholders participate in the same data – in the depth of information that is understandable and relevant for day-to-day business or strategic decisions. By using Prolaborate, collaboration across departmental boundaries is easily possible.

The agile Organisation

From A to B with Enterprise Architecture and Prolaborate

Leveraging Agility

Integration and Automation with Prolaborate

The modeled, agile organization: Is this what you would like to achieve in your company? We show you how to integrate Enterprise Architect and Prolaborate into the agile organization. You will understand which change from ACTUAL to TARGET is necessary to achieve the goal of the agile organization.

Your Challenge

How to provide changed information in an automated and aggregated way when changes occur? How can we move to an integrated way of working that has fewer tool breaks and is therefore less prone to errors?

Our Method

  1. Identify the potential of aggregation in Prolaborate
  2. Adaptation of Prolaborate views for the respective stakeholders

Your Benefit

Faster and easier access to necessary information increases agility in the company. By integrating different tools and automation, information is available up to date.

The validated Organisation

Reduce Complexity

Validation in Enterprise Architect for Agile Modeling and Accurate Representation in Prolaborate

Enterprise Architect is a modeling platform with many options. However, this can make the barrier for modeling too high. In Enterprise Architect, predefined profiles, constraints and validation rules can be used to set this hurdle so that agile modeling becomes more easy. At the same time, you can meet compliance requirements and automate modeling rules across the enterprise.

Your Challenge

Do you want to gain more certainty in your models and thus in your statements? Do you want to model more and faster for new requirements instead of having to think about structure and rules first?

Our Method

Step 1 to 5 in Enterprise Architect, step 6 in Prolaborate:

1: Develop a model with all necessary information

Developing questions with the stakeholders

Develop a sample solution (reference model), to answer the questions

2: Derive the project-specific metamodel and further rules and guidelines for the modeling approach

3: Configure the EA (simplify the user interface, adapt the modeling language, map rules with UML profile and metaconstraints.

4: Implement validation rules

5: If necessary, implement additional wizards in the EA

6: In Prolaborate: Definition of views and dashboards

Your Benefit

You gain confidence in the models you develop and the information derived from them, because they follow a defined validation. Due to the set profiles and defined modeling possibilities, you are faster in the concrete elaboration.

Achieving Goals

Achieving Goals

You know who needs what kind of information when: the Information goals have been set and defined. But how can these be achieved without spending too much time and budget on development? With our sample solutions for your questions, we build a prototype in Prolaborate that you can easily manage and adapt in a budget-friendly way.

Your Challenge

You know what information who needs in your company. But it is not clear to you how to prepare this technically so that it really reaches the stakeholders. You have not yet found the bridge from the model to the aggregated presentation in Prolaborate.

Our Method

Three steps for your budget-friendly, goal-oriented prototype

  1. Discussion of goals and concrete questions
  2. Comparison of questions with sample solutions, filling the sample solution with your sample data
  3. Development of the prototype in the productive system

Your Benefit

With our sample solutions you can solve your specific problem more quickly. We realize a first prototype for you with little initial effort. This saves you high development costs and allows you to intervene more easily and quickly before high costs have been incurred.

The sustainable Organisation

From A to B with Enterprise Architecture and Prolaborate

Developing Sustainability

the Enterprise Anchor “Sustainable Enterprise Architecture” (“SEA”) in Prolaborate

Today, sustainability is more than just “good talk” for companies. Not only society, but also regulators are now placing compliance standards that must be demonstrably met by a certain date. The UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (“SDGs”) set guardrails here, from which regulations for countries and industries are cast. Modeling creates an important knowledge base and shows how these guard rails are mastered in the company.

Your Challenge

Anchoring sustainability is the core task of every company. But how can this be presented in such a way that existing processes and the resources used actually meet these requirements?


2 steps for more sustainability with Enterprise Architecture and Prolaborate

  1. Introduction to the target system of Sustainable Development Goals (SDG’s), derivation of company-relevant goals, clarification of existing potentials and new foundations to be created
  2. Implementation of the target system in models with Enterprise Architect and Prolaborate Dashboards

Your Benefit

The topic “sustainability” and the regulations that have to be fulfilled with it are on every agenda of board and management. With “SEA” you prove the sustainable value of your modeling initiatives.
