EAM Tool Selection

The success of EA management is not at least dependent on the quality and suitability of the EA tool(s) in use. The tool does not only serve as an architecture database and reporting component, but it is also a primary touchpoint for stakeholders with the enterprise architecture and therefore also an important means of communication. Against this background, it is of considerable importance for the EA management function to select the best suited tool available on the market. We will be happy to assist you in this task.
