iGrafx Accelerators enable Enterprise Architects to define enterprise models more quickly by leveraging published enterprise frameworks as a starting point. As your organization’s model evolves, iGrafx helps ensure it remains aligned with appropriate industry standards and highlights areas of competitive differentiation. By linking an enterprise model with one or more frameworks, compliance and gap analysis is possible and organizations can focus process improvement efforts in areas that are competitive differentiators. In addition, alignment with some enterprise frameworks, e.g. Process Classification Framework, poises organizations to benchmark their performance with industry peers.
