PARIS/BOSTON, September 10, 2020 – MEGA International, a global software firm recognized as a leader in enterprise architecture for 11 consecutive years, today announced the launch of HOPEX IT Business Management, a new strategic planning solution to ensure IT projects are aligned with strategic business objectives and can keep pace with rapidly changing market conditions. The solution helps accelerate business transformation by planning and aligning IT assets to key strategic business objectives.

Business strategy is constantly evolving and it’s difficult for IT to stay current of strategic discussions occurring at the business level. As a result, IT strategic planning usually fails to keep pace with rapidly changing business decisions and IT projects are not planned and prioritized based on business objectives, often leading to the wrong IT investments,” remarks Lucio de Risi, Founder and CEO of MEGA. “Our new solution is designed to solve these challenges. HOPEX IT Business Management allows IT departments to manage both the day-to-day technology and proactively plan for future investments, ensuring the IT roadmap keeps pace with changing business objectives.”

HOPEX IT Business Management creates a synergistic environment to support all stakeholders involved in digital business transformation by providing actionable insights for all business and IT stakeholders. The solution demonstrates the immediate business value of IT projects for accelerated decision-making and faster time-to-value.

This new solution provides business architecture capability, application portfolio management, technology risk management, and a data glossary all in one solution. Through a single shared collaborative platform, HOPEX IT Business Management automatically collects IT assets using out-of-the-box integrations. The solution leverages HOPEX 360, an enterprise portal that provides advanced dashboards to share insights and performance of the IT portfolio. It uses a dedicated mobile app, HOPEX ID Card, to view information about IT assets in a simple and effective manner.
