BiZZdesign’s CTO, Peter Matthijssen, said, “In today’s challenging business environment, enterprise architects require a platform that will allow them to quickly identify strategic insights and easily make these known to the decision makers. Additionally, they need to be able to monitor business and IT operational data in real time and also explore different scenario if they are to accurately assess the impact of new digital technologies and initiatives on the organization”.

“We’re constantly working to improve the platform. We keep an eye on industry developments, we take feedback from users – the end goal is to allow our customers to get more value from the product, quicker, and with lower overheads”, said Peter Matthijssen. “The results we’ve had this year – being named in both the Magic Quadrant and Critical Capabilities reports tells me that we’re on the right path. “In the 2018 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Architecture Tools, Bizzdesign was positioned highest for the ability to execute and furthest for completeness of vision in the Leaders quadrant.
