~ Dragon1 Inc. Introduces New Book Providing Unique Approach To Design and Realize Enterprise Architecture and Integral Solutions Much More Visually And Effective at Strategic Level.~

AMSTERDAM, July 17th, 2014 – Dragon1 Inc. today announced the immediate availability of its new book, Dragon1 Fundamentals, which offers people around the globe a new and unique approach to design and realize Enterprise Architecture and Integral Solutions much more visually and effective at a strategic level. This book is very well suited for anyone interested in working with architecture, both as members of projects or participants in planning the architecture of the enterprise.

“The big question is - how can enterprise architects and managers use Enterprise Architecture at a strategic level to effectively control the risks inherent in enterprise transformation,” said Mark Paauwe, founder of Dragon1. “With this study guide, we address this question in a structured way using the Dragon1 Open EA Method. Dragon1 has rediscovered and adopted the power of architecture visualizations and design books to provide decision support to owner/clients analogous to the methods used in the field of building architecture. This study guide highlights the added value of Enterprise Architecture using this metaphor,” adds Mark Paauwe.

Dragon1 is built on the premise that Enterprise Architecture is all about visual design and realization of all architecture domains (i.e. business architecture, information architecture, technical architecture and solution architectures). Architects design total concepts for various enterprise domains and solutions aligned with the enterprise’s strategic vision to deliver value-add support in business transformations and IT innovations.

Realistic visualizations of current and planned architecture is a powerful technique for owners/clients, stakeholders, users, program managers and specialists to reach a common understanding (insights and overview) of architecture analysis and design within a short period of time as needed to realize and implement integrated and sustainable (future proof) business IT solutions.

Key themes covered in the book include:
• Why and how enterprise architecture is or could be applied within the enterprise at a strategic level;
• What the roles of the architect and stakeholders are;
• What architecture visualizations can be created;
• What architecture products are available and how they are used to realize and implement integrated business IT solutions.

A preview of Dragon1 Fundamentals is available for download from the Dragon1 Platform and as a hard copy from the Stores at The hardcopy version retails for $55 in the U.S., £34 in the United Kingdom and for € 39.95 in Europe.
