HoriZZon is a technologically advanced product that leverages cutting-edge web, cloud, data integration, collaboration, social and analytic technologies. On one hand, it enables architects and analysts to analyze potential change scenarios, design better processes, and assess risk. On the other hand, it helps business stakeholders create, navigate, analyze (e.g. by using color or label views), use on demand charts, or free format explore (impact of change) the content in the repository.
HoriZZon’s easy-to-use search and navigation functions ensure both business and technical stakeholders can find what they need with only a few clicks.
Open Standards Support
An extensive range of standards, frameworks and techniques are supported, from mainstream (ArchiMate, TOGAF, AMBER, BPMN, UML, ERD, DMN, PESTEL, Kanban etc.) to niche ones (MODAF, DODAF, BIAN, Panorama 360, NIST 800-53, MIRA-B and others).
HoriZZon supports multi-user access, allowing stakeholders to work effectively even if they are geographically disparate, or part of a highly federated organization.
The platform’s central repository acts as a unified location where cross-functional teams can collaborate on a range of projects.
HoriZZon’s modeling environment, Enterprise Studio, allows users very intuitive modeling. Our best-in-class interface automatically adjusts to the meta-model in use, allowing business and technical stakeholders to model the enterprise easily and correctly by default.

HoriZZon offers advanced dashboarding in support of Business Intelligence 2.0. Data can be effectively visualized via ad-hoc overlays and charts, which is useful for exploring it interactively. Having a consolidated platform that offers a live image of the organization and presenting insights in the form of signature-ready deliverables helps keep progress constant. Together with powerful data streaming analytics, this sets the foundation for an effective BI 2.0 practice.
HoriZZon runs a powerful workflow engine that enables users to set up advanced, automatic processes for dealing with specific scenarios. They can be as simple as a single step or quite complex, supporting multiple parallel branches.
Governance & Security
HoriZZon supports single sign-on, and admins are able to create groups or assign individual roles, each role/group featuring its own distinct access rights (read, write, and manage). A locking mechanism lets modelers work on the same model simultaneously, with all changes traceable to individual users.
Multiple Languages Support
Multiple languages are supported in the platform’s repository, and each model can have an unlimited number of languages added to it. Notably, even non-western languages (e.g. Chinese, Arabic), including Right-to-Left languages, are supported.
Connectivity & Scalability
HoriZZon offers extremely fast data streaming capabilities. This grants users unprecedented levels of freedom and performance when it comes to consolidating data from a variety of sources, e.g. Business Intelligence tools, CMDBs, IT Service Management tools, or process mining. HoriZZon can handle real-time data feeds at high-throughput rates while maintaining a low-latency.
HoriZZon provides a 360-degree view of the enterprise landscape. Its support for multiple key transformation disciplines (EA, BPM, Portfolio Management etc.) lets users manage all aspects of change effectively, while the powerful analysis engine helps to identify opportunities for improvement.
Effective Stakeholder Engagement
The platform plays a key role in supporting decision making. HoriZZon lets users publish content created in Enterprise Studio across the enterprise and socialize it to relevant stakeholder groups. It also helps business figures (e.g. CIO, Line of Business managers, portfolio managers) generate their own reports and dashboards on a self-serve basis, relieving some of the pressure off the IT team.
Shorter Time to Value
HoriZZon provides real-time insights into the transformation process. It can be used to integrate and analyze data, explore the impact of change, collaborate with colleagues, as well as create custom-made visualizations.
