BOSTON (BUSINESS WIRE)
has released a new version of its HOPEX
platform, with advanced productivity and collaboration features, to
meet enterprise transformation and governance challenges faced by the
HOPEX powers MEGA’s broad range of integrated
software solutions that help organizations meet complex,
interconnected needs and achieve effective enterprise governance. The
MEGA approach offers companies a way to innovate through digital
transformation and improve performance through efficient corporate
With HOPEX and the solutions built upon it, MEGA has taken a bold step
outside of the traditional enterprise architecture (EA), portfolio
management and governance, risk and compliance (GRC) domains. It is the
only company serving all three markets with integrated solutions that
eliminate silos of effort and information and reduce the barriers to
enterprise transformation. The alternatives to MEGA’s approach are
proprietary products that require complex architectures, unintegrated
solutions with fragile interfaces that often fail, or individuals and
teams continuing to work separately in their single domain.
“A unified platform enables an organization to facilitate change
management across typically separate EA and GRC programs. It delivers
value, aligns with core business strategy and objectives, and drives
operational performance gains,” according to Michael Rasmussen, founder
of GRC 20/20 Research.
MEGA has been helping organizations manage enterprise complexity and
business transformation for more than 20 years. Customers
include Aetna, Banque Accord, HCL, Johnson & Johnson, Nissan, Procter &
Gamble, Starwood Hotels, Swiss Federal Railways, UniCredit Group and
“HOPEX-based solutions will aid executives and managers in complex
organizations in understanding the big picture across their entire
enterprise. Our approach helps them clarify business and IT goals,
design effective strategies and manage transformation programs in spite
of business complexity,” explained Lucio de Risi, CEO, MEGA.
MEGA solutions act much like a business GPS by delivering a single view
of the organization to help navigate change. The business GPS shows
where the company is, where it wants go, what route or alternates to
follow, and how to manage risks and detours along the way.
With the new capabilities in collaboration and productivity, MEGA has
created new standards for depth and ease-of-use in enterprise governance
The new capabilities include:
Productivity: instant reporting is easier, faster
and more thorough with new display and drill-down capabilities,
matrixes, heat maps and customizable exports for office automation.
Collaboration Manager: social media features of instant
messaging and collaborative walls facilitate innovation, as
well as fast and effective communications. Multiple users can work on
the same model simultaneously, much like people in a conference room
sharing a whiteboard at the same time.
Terminology Management helps users converge on terms to
minimize confusion or redefinition, especially with terms specific
to certain frameworks. One person might call it a rock; another a
stone. With this feature, they can understand when different terms
mean the same item.
Report Studio allows users to create report templates
through easy-to-use drag-and-drop functions, with minimal effort.
Viewpoint Administration lets viewpoints be defined to
split repository content corresponding to roles and provides a
simple, efficient way to customize user interfaces.
Web-based Diagramming makes it easy to manage graphical
design and representation, and customize diagrams in terms of color,
size, graphical objects, and more, for business-oriented communication.
MEGA has been cited in numerous analyst reports on enterprise
governance, including EA and GRC topics. The company won the 2013 GRC
Technology Innovator Award from GRC 20/20 Research. Gartner Inc. has
named MEGA as a leader in its EA Magic Quadrant reports for five
consecutive years and the company has been noted in research by
Forrester Research, Inc.
