Documenting an Enterprise Architecture
The Documentation features can be used to automatically generate a wide range of documentation directly from the models. These can be document-based such as PDF and Docx format or HTML-based. Flexible templates can be used to completely tailor the documents that are generated including company logos, tables of content, tables of element information and diagrams. The success of an architecture and ultimately the entire Architecture Program will depend on how well communication with stakeholders is managed. Many stakeholders will be content to view architecture information including lists, diagrams and matrices directly in the repository but others will want electronic or printed documentation delivered to them. The documentation generator can be used to create high quality corporate publications automatically from the repository. This includes a wide range of standard publications such as the Architecture Vision, Compliance Assessment, Communication Plan and more. Ad-hoc reports can also be created from a number of tools such as the Glossary and the Search Window.
