June 30, 2008 - MEGA International introduced MEGA IT Planning, a road mapping tool that helps enterprises plan, model and visualize technology resources to make well-informed decisions about IT asset acquisition, management and retirement.


MEGA IT Planning is the latest addition to the MEGA Modeling Suite, an enterprise architecture and business process analysis solution.


MEGA IT Planning meets an emerging need to understand the effects of multiple changes to IT resources, such as necessary software upgrades, discontinued products or potential price changes.


With the new tool, architects can model master plans of IT systems to obtain time-dependent views of application, service and IT asset portfolio management. Users can evaluate and compare multiple as-is and to-be scenarios concerning the evolution of the whole range of enterprise IT assets (such as applications, services, servers, etc.). As a result, enterprises can better align IT investments with business strategy.


MEGA IT Planning stores plans in a centralized repository. The repository helps guarantee the traceability and consistency required for the effective planning and management of resources within increasingly heterogeneous IT environments. Because the same up-to-date information is stored and accessible throughout the enterprise, it reduces the time and resources needed to manage vast IT systems and provides security for sensitive data.


MEGA IT Planning may be used independently of other modules in the MEGA Modeling Suite to achieve dedicated IT planning, or it can be used in conjunction with them to conduct comprehensive enterprise architecture and business process analysis.
