Enterprise Architecture based on BlueDolphin
Direct Insight Into Current Situation
In practice, the Enterprise Architecture department spends a lot of time on gaining insight into the current situation. With Enterprise Architecture based on BlueDolphin, this situation is perfectly mapped, almost automatically.
BlueDolphin goes beyond the job of an Enterprise Architect. Management, architects, process owners and functional/technical managers work together within a single central repository, taking advantage of smart and user-friendly features. BlueDolphin allows each department to benefit from their own perspective.
Supports Decision-making with Customizable Visualizations
Thanks to powerful visualizations and reports, various stakeholders gain access to useful and authentic information regarding relevant business data in the architecture.

The Structure of Enterprise Architecture
ValueBlue helps decentralize Enterprise Architecture. Proper structure of BlueDolphin ensures all employees become involved in gaining insight into the current situation/architecture. All involved work in one central platform, and in a language that everyone can understand. As a result, all business units are connected and information is recorded first hand (rather than through interviews). This ‘automatic cohesion’ enables each individual knowledge area to further improve its own quality. Naturally, this allows knowledge workers to identify each other faster. Collaboration guarantees results.
“Thanks to BlueDolphin, we now have excellent insight into the expiry of contracts and a clear replacement calendar.”

The Power of ValueBlue
Whereas others take ‘architecture for architects’ as a starting point, ValueBlue focuses on the organization itself. We view Enterprise Architecture as the collaboration of multiple disciplines, in which responsibilities are decentralized on the one hand and centrally supervised on the other. ValueBlue has a ‘can-do’ and ‘think yes’ mentality. We have a pragmatic and solution-oriented approach. For example, we are both practically and strategically involved from vision to realization of the ideal Enterprise Architecture design. Our team is committed to pursuing the goals of your organization. Cooperation is paramount to us. Moreover, we transfer knowledge to the internal organization, so that assurance can also be achieved in the future.
