Different people need different access.
If you’re a Enterprise Architect user, you’ll know that it can contain all kinds of useful business knowledge:
- requirements and user stories,
- architectures and processes,
- analysis and design.
And that information is in lots of different states:
- General information - company- or industry-wide knowledge, that you're happy for anyone to see and re-use
- Work-in-progress, which is being created by a team - but you might want other teams to be aware of
- Restricted information: perhaps secret projects, or highly technical information, which you don't want most people to even know exists
Existing techniques rely on dumping information out of EA, and leaving the users to find what they need. Even if they don’t understand what they are looking at.
With Prolaborate, all that changes.
You can now give all your business users access to EA knowledge - not to last week’s copy, but to the most up-to-date version. And you can customize the view of each user so that they see exactly what they need, presented in a way which makes sense to them.
Live Web Interface
Prolaborate does this by connecting to any EA model – even your working repository. So no more overnight dumps of EA data. And it gives access via a responsive web interface, so no matter what devices your users like to use, they will still get the same clear user interface.
With Prolaborate, you can choose exactly which parts of your model each group of users can see. Or even what individual users can see. At a high level - which packages and elements - and at a low level - which individual attributes they can see.
This means you can create some views for project team members, others for business stakeholders, even a view for your external supppliers and customers. And everyone is seeing the most up-to-date information.
Link your knowledge together
You probably use a whole variety of other tools to hold business information: SharePoint, wikis, company intranets, or other web-based tools.
You can now add links to those tools which, with one click, will take users directly into Prolaborate, where they can see the very latest information. No more copy/paste!
Today's web users expect a simple, powerful search capability, which doesn't need any specialist knowledge. Just type what you want and let the website do the work.
With Prolaborate, you can search across any EA information, as well as the comments and discussions which other users have created,
