BOSTON, October 17, 2017 – MEGA International has released a new version of HOPEX IT Architecture that will help companies foster business innovation, support their strategic roadmap and complete successful IT and business transformation.
HOPEX IT Architecture meets the critical need to align IT with business priorities by mapping and evaluating the IT assets that will be required to support evolving business capabilities. It helps companies properly shape current and future applications and IT infrastructure.
“Today’s enterprises recognize that IT is at the heart of their businesses. They rely on technology to drive innovation as they face strong competition,” noted Lucio de Risi, CEO, MEGA. “Our customers can use our solution to develop the agility to go to market faster and complete digital transformation initiatives sooner.”
HOPEX IT Architecture:
- aligns business and IT roadmaps
- maps services and applications and how they interact
- supports modern architectural challenges (Internet of Things, SaaS, cloud, virtualization, etc.)
- drives change by turning IT architecture strategic plans into IT projects
- supports three IT roles: IT strategists, application architects and technology architects
With the MEGA solution, service-oriented architecture (SOA) is the default way to architect applications and the infrastructure they require. In times of rapid business change, this allows IT teams to respond to new market conditions faster by:
- defining services independently of any physical implementation
- describing the current and future IT landscape through SOA and the use of service catalogs
- combining large chunks of functionalities to form applications that are built purely from existing services
Just last month, MEGA introduced its project portfolio management module as part of MEGA’s HOPEX IT Architecture, HOPEX IT Portfolio Management and HOPEX Business Architecture solutions. It provides added visibility into the business impacts, costs, risks and benefits of specific projects and increases the ability to properly manage them for successful digital transformation. For IT architects, it can help with ideation management, identification of architectural components impacted by projects, project planning and management, and development of new IT capabilities.
