Digital transformation, innovation and continuous improvement are the three key areas that spell success for an organization. To differentiate their offerings, companies worldwide are transforming into digital enterprises with powerful technologies and business models driving changes in the way they manage their customers, knowledge, and processes. Organizations need to chart the path towards digital transformation with concrete innovative strategies. Meeting this need, the Montreal, QC-based Trisotech deploys inventive business processes, and innovative business models to create new methods of engaging customers and employees. The firm offers cloud-based technologies that enable architects and analysts to collaboratively participate in enterprise and business architecture innovation, transformation, and process improvement. “Our cloud-based SaaS solution empowers everyone in an organization to participate through easy-to-use browser-based graphical screens,” asserts Denis Gagné, Partner, CEO and CTO, at Trisotech.
Trisotech’s Digital Enterprise Suite (DES), encompasses effective technologies and platforms to amplify the enterprise by providing superior insights, and helps in planning and strategizing, meeting the requirements of Enterprise Architecture. DES allows non-technical business users as well as enterprise and business architects to gain unique insights into relationships between models using Digital Enterprise Graph— a common semantic framework. Delivered as a subscription service, it provides a global unified business context that enables enterprise-wide agility, innovation and transformation.
Being an IT-friendly toolset, DES is designed for business and IT people alike. For example, business process discovery and design can be linked-to and driven-by business goals. Even if the processes are not well documented, it lets business people discover and document their own processes with the click of a button. This information is then converted into an industry-standard model diagram that both IT and businesses can work with, collaborate on and view in a way most useful to them.

Furthermore, it can be deployed in a number of different configurations and supports shared, authenticated repositories, the ability to add, edit and delete attachments from cloud storage services like OneDrive, Dropbox, YouTube videos, SlideShare presentations or custom, user defined links. Having been in the market place for over two decades, Trisotech standardizes and automates routine business processes for efficient operations, driven by analytics and intelligent automated decisioning.
Holding an M.Math Degree in Artificial Intelligence, Gagné has led Trisotech through the development of unique services and product propositions in plotting Trisotech's market strategy. “We are complementary with, and often extend, other enterprise architecture and business process analysis tools,” delineates Gagné. To this end, Trisotech provides connectors— ‘Accelerators’ to systems such as Sparx EA, Casewise and Troux that helps in protecting customer’s existing investments. The Discovery Accelerator helps in documenting enterprise capabilities, roles and information, and broadens the audience for business architecture beyond that of IT-focused enterprise architecture tools, bringing architecture to the business. It helps customers to discover and document the structure of their organization and measure performance goals using meaningful metrics. It can be used on its own, or combined with templates including Suppliers, Inputs, Process, Outputs, and Customers (SIPOC), balanced scorecard and industry frameworks like APQC and Business Process Frameworx (eTOM). In addition, conceptual models are exported from the Discovery Accelerator into standard Business Process Model and Notation (BPMN) or CMMN (Case Management) format, which in turn becomes the starting point for behavioral modeling in the BPMN and CMMN Modelers.
With the Digital Enterprise Suite providing new ways for digital enterprise knowledge workers to work in a global connected world, Gagné says, “DES enables non-technical business people as well as architects to participate in enterprise and business architecture planning, discovery, and modeling.”
