Envision® comprises a flexible business-object-oriented (BOO) repository combined with an configurable user interface.
Users can easily create standard models (such as TOGAF, DODAF, Zachman), or custom and industry specific visualizations. Dynamic links between business objects – in the form of user-friendly graphical views, documents, text, pictures, sound, and video – are all easy to set-up. Users can create and view these objects and their relationships in diagrams, spreadsheets, custom forms. In addition, our data browser enables users to view items directly from the repository. The underlying repository manages all relationships, calculations and metrics, item-state, ownership, versioning and security seamlessly. Users can apply filters and rules to manage and analyze these objects using an array of techniques. These techniques include spreadsheet-like Matrix Analyses, report writing tools, and custom SQL query capabilities.
Users can export models and other information maintained in Envision’s repository to other productivity applications, presentation packages, spreadsheets, and databases.
Consequently: Envision is truly an enterprise-wide repository as it supports an unlimited number of business modeling and technical modeling standards and methodologies, all from the one instance.
