As the use of our comprehensive tool set by an organization matures and grows, the administration of the repository and its content becomes a vital task requirement.
It is necessary to separate the usage of the tools from the administration so that our tools are easy to use for both the end user and the administrator.
We provide a central repository that is used to store enterprise architecture and business process content. The repository is both configurable in how it is deployed, and customizable to fit an organizations specific needs and requirements.
The Casewise Exchange
The Casewise Exchange is the collaborative information repository for Casewise Modeler users and enables large project teams to share and build on each other’s work for fast, coordinated process and IT improvement. The Casewise Exchange runs on either Microsoft SQL Server or Oracle databases.
Role Based Access
Information/data within many organizations, especially the information that surrounds business and IT transformation activities is considered as Intellectual Property (IP). Access to this information often needs to be controlled and managed by the organization in a secure manner. Various roles need access to differing types of information and at different levels of granularity and the role based access allows for this.
Entry Points and Frameworks
Information in the repository also needs to be represented in different ways in order to address specific market needs. There are typically two ways in which information is accessed:
- Frameworks – Industry standard frameworks such as Zachman, TOGAF, eTOM Frameworx, DoDAF are all ways in which specific users can access information
- Entry Points – There are many entry points through which specific visualizations can be provided. Examples include; Application Architect, CxO, HR Administrator, IT Executive etc... These types of entry points are closely aligned with role based access control.
The administrator needs control to obfuscate the frameworks and entry points so that individuals or groups only see what they need to see.
