Powerful Work Item Composer

A work item defines an activity that appear on the TOGAF process map. Work items represent the actual activities to perform and the information required. The Work Item Composer features an array of authoring features that facilitate the development work items both for instructing enterprise architects and for collecting the information required by the process.

Chunk your work item into steps

Reduce the complexity of a work by breaking down a work item into multiple steps. This allows the completion of work gradually from one stage to the next.

Define the action artifacts

Action artifacts are the heart of work items in that they define the actions to perform. A rich set of actions can be defined for a wide range of purposes:

  • Diagram: Request the creation of a business/technical diagram. Over 80 diagram types are available.
  • Data Table: Develop a form or table to collect the information needed.
  • ETL Table: Extract and list a sub-set of model data. Allows the attachment of custom properties.
  • Text: Request a text input.
  • File: Request to provide a file.
  • Folder: Open a drawer in Visual File Cabinet.
  • Action: Execute an action. E.g Open Tasifier

Include instructions and examples

Provide guidance to enterprise architects on how to complete a step. Document the instructions and include examples. You can write with rich text and include images and URLs in the content.

Customize TOGAF ADM deliverables with drag-and-drop

Besides process tailoring, you can also tailor the deliverables to better fit your organization's needs and standards. The drag-and-drop Doc. Composer allows you to build and edit deliverables with the data you need and in the order you preferred. In runtime, when the information required by a report is provided, a Word report will be automatically generated.

Drag-and-drop Doc. Composer

Doc. Composer is a powerful report builder designed for custom report production. The report builder consists of a document editor and a list of ADM work items and artifacts. To build a deliverable, simply drag the artifacts onto the document in the order you preferred, and that's all! Building a TOGAF ADM deliverable has never been easier.

Visual file cabinet for auto-report archiving

Configure the visual file cabinet to fit your need. By associating the process reports to the drawers, documents will be generated and archived in the drawers in runtime.

Turn every software project into a successful one.
