Today, with enterprises churning out data at an exponential rate, it is essential for organizations to possess the necessary tools for their secure storage and management. With evolving technologies, the cost of storage solutions has decreased but in parallel, organizations’ need to retain data has also increased. There is a need to establish retention policies on various types of data in order to manage the cost of storage and to enable retrieval of important information. Well positioned to tackle this situation is Adaptive, which provides a range of solutions, geared towards countering management challenges such as data governance, metadata management, Enterprise Architecture Management among others.
The firm provides a common framework adopting it’s idiosyncratic functional capabilities including workflow, role based security, versioning to enable clients to tackle their IT problems. “Our solutions capture data silos into our web-based robust platform, which allows stakeholders to manage their enterprise architectures in the most optimal manner,” states Jeff Goins, President and CEO, Adaptive.
Adaptive solutions provide “Intelligent Search” capabilities that allow organizations to bring back search results into their Microsoft Office centric applications— including their email systems. This facilitates collaboration, reuse, and the ability to drill-down into relevant data sources. Besides, it also leverages Big Data sources which provides a comprehensive capability in analytics that can be used to understand “as-is” and “to-be” architectures. “We support configurable workflow processes, access control, collaboration and advanced analytics,” states Goins.
Adaptive is an active and influential contributor to the standards community and works closely with the Object Management Group (OMG) providing the underlying metamodels based on industry best practices. “Our Enterprise Architecture (EA) Manager product provides key underlying standards in the areas of strategy, process, application, and technology architectures,” says Goins.
