April 7, 2008 - The U.S. Department of Transportation’s Maritime Administration (MARAD) is using MEGA International’s MEGA Modeling Suite for an enterprise architecture initiative to help the agency make IT and business operations efficient, reuse assets, share vital information and meet agency goals and constituent needs.


The MEGA Modeling Suite helps organizations analyze and plan so they can react to changes quickly and anticipate trends. The suite of software modules provides a view of the processes of the organization and the technology that supports it. It helps organizations understand the effects of change before implementation and reduces unknowns, delays and costs.


“We concluded that the optimal way to improve our information system and better fulfill our mission was to deploy a comprehensive enterprise architecture solution,” explained Donna Seymour, CIO at MARAD. “We wanted to take advantage of the business value enterprise architecture provides, so that we would spend our money as wisely as possibly by reusing investments to the greatest extent possible while positioning ourselves to provide future vital services.”


The MEGA Modeling Suite addressed MARAD’s criteria - data repository, secure model, modeling tools, simulation, flexibilit, and multiple and flexible access to data in the repository, according to MEGA International.
