SAMU unites architecture information from all possible sources: humans and systems.

Using the right tools for the right purposes is fundamental for efficiency. Therefore, companies need best-of-breed tools for process modelling, virtualization and monitoring.

If the data is trusted, it can be a great source for an end-to-end enterprise architecture view. SAMU unites information that is important from an EA perspective into a common meta-model.

Typical systems our clients use SAMU with include:

  • BPM tools, such as Signavio or Camunda
  • CMDBs, like HP Service Manager, CA, BMC
  • Service management tools, including IBM Tivoli, HP Netview, ServiceNow
  • Virtualization engines, eg. VMware vCenter, Hyper-V

SAMU has been designed to collaborate with other tools

Intelligent data synchronization module for bi-directional data exchange
Web Services to expose functionality to external apps
Excel wizard and XML import / export
Frontend referencing to external URLs, eg. BPMN diagram defined in a BPM tool


Lessons learned

Automation do not substitute human brainwork.
The most valuable information generally are in people’s mind.
