“Data is the new oil” stated Clive Humby, a British mathematician in 2006. Great statement… except if the data is outdated. When it comes to enterprise architecture, using outdated data for decision-making can put organisational operations and profitability at risk.

The common issue with traditional enterprise architecture

Why then do so many organisations still grapple with this issue daily, basing decisions on enterprise architecture data that was probably created years ago and stored in a Visio diagram on someone’s hard drive? Even if they have an EA function that uses a digital tool, this problem is still prevalent, as the data may not have been reviewed in years.

So, how do you ensure your decisions are based on accurate and current data? The answer lies in Ardoq Surveys.

Crowdsource data updates with Ardoq Surveys

If you type crowdsourcing into Google you get a range of various definitions that allude to gathering information from a large group of people. However, Ardoq takes a different approach to crowdsourcing by extracting specific information from the right people. This provides an effective way to harness the collective wisdom of your organisation, gathering insights from capability experts and closing data gaps in your enterprise model, with the added benefit of eliminating the need for time-consuming workshops or unproductive meetings.

It also is another way that Ardoq breaks down the silos and improves collaboration across your entire organisation, bringing:

  • Data Governance: Ardoq Surveys bridges the gaps in your enterprise model, ensuring you maintain the best and most up-to-date dataset possible.

  • Relevancy: Tailor your surveys to collect specific data, avoiding the one-size-fits-all approach. Ardoq Surveys adapts to your unique needs.

  • Data Enrichment: Coupled with Ardoq Broadcasts, you can automate the distribution of surveys to collect and validate data while keeping it perpetually current.

  • Security: Take control of who can modify survey data by granting specific permissions. With Ardoq Surveys, you determine the level of access for each user.

  • Conditional Questions: Simplify surveys by presenting follow-up questions that are relevant to respondents based on their previous answers, making an efficient data collection process.
