Organizations often struggle when it comes to effectively managing their IT assets in support of their business goals. That’s why senior management will typically turn to enterprise architecture tools such as Troux 14 for help with high-level strategic planning and road mapping. These tools also help them better understand the cross-dependencies of future requirements—not to mention how to optimize application ownership cost.
This is the issue that technical editor Steve Cotterell explores in his latest review of Troux 14 in Project Manager Today, the leading and only independent magazine for project managers. He discusses how Planview’s latest release of Troux can help organizations grasp how much they’re spending on individual technologies. By knowing total capability spend and how their assets are allocated between capabilities, they can begin to evaluate risk and reduction in IT spend.
In the article, Cotterell highlights some of the core functionality of Troux 14, including:
- Configurable, role-based screens that allow you to highlight your organization’s required business capabilities
- Tree maps that help you understand the application landscape and size it according to your specific KPIs
- Portfolio-based bubble charts that show the relative cost and technological risk of each application, any functional redundancy, and application complexity
- Application roadmaps with Gantt-style timeline reports to show how long each service is required by the business
- More than 70 out-of-the-box reports so you can build reports in real-time
