Knowledge Center    

Austin, Texas - (Nov. 4th, 2010) - Troux Technologies, Inc., the leader in Strategic IT Planning and Control software, today announced it has been positioned by Gartner, Inc. in the leader’s quadrant in the 'Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Architecture Tools’1 report. The Magic Quadrant placements are drawn from rigorous evaluation around two primary axes: completeness of vision and ability to execute.

“We believe our position in the leader’s quadrant is largely due to our unrelenting focus on delivering business value and ensuring our customer’s success with Strategic IT Planning and the next generation of Enterprise Architecture. We serve more than 300 Global 2000 companies and meet the demanding and intersecting needs of IT and business stakeholders, and ultimately change the way our clients invest and operate,” said David Hood, CEO of Troux Technologies.

Leaders Deliver Value to Many Stakeholders

According to the authors of the report, “With the global economic downturn continuing throughout 2010, and only now starting to improve, the adoption of EA tools has reflected the need to provide better management, analysis and communication capabilities to demonstrate the value these tools bring to an organization. The chief architect and EA team are not the only stakeholders benefiting from an EA tool.”

They continue, “the richness of tool capabilities have continued to increase, particularly in areas that enable them to support a range of EA activities such as task management, governance, risk, compliance, communication and collaboration, while maintaining a common repository.”
