RAYNHAM, Mass.--(Business Wire)--
MEGA, the company that pioneered enterprise architecture (EA) and business
process analysis (BPA) solutions, today introduced the 2009 edition of the MEGA
Modeling Suite. This latest version of the industry-leading, strategic EA
solution is a platform to help businesses cut operational costs, rationalize
limited assets, and support innovation. 

MEGA, named by global market research company Forrester as a leader in its
January 2009 report, The Forrester Wave: Business Process Analysis, Enterprise
Architecture (EA) Tools, and IT Planning, Q1 2009, continually provides
pragmatic answers to support customer needs. This new version of the Suite is a
unique solution that encompasses all dimensions of EA, from business process
optimization and IT road-mapping and planning, to IT systems design and data
modeling. 

The major emphasis is on EA management, with a new version of MEGA IT Planning,
which helps enterprises build and compare effective in-depth scenarios for IT
system transformation. Using IT master plans, MEGA IT Planning enables what-if
analysis for accurate forecasts of the effects of change within the IT
environment. The software includes a customizable library of
management-oriented, predefined dashboards to support decision-making and help
enterprises better synchronize IT investments with business strategy. 

To advance business architecture initiatives and identify areas for cost
reductions, the Suite offers MEGA Process BPMN to support the latest version of
the Business Process Modeling Notation (BPMN), the recognized industry standard
developed by the Object Management Group (OMG) for business process
descriptions. In addition to the notation, MEGA Process BPMN provides
value-added decision support through process mapping and analysis capabilities.
Process owners, and business and IT architects can use the common notation of
BPMN to simplify communication, and accelerate their business process
optimization initiatives. 

The new version includes capabilities driven by customer needs, and extends the
Suite for the defense and security industry with the MEGA Suite for DoDAF. 

New administration features integrate the platform with authentication systems,
and offer support for repository storage in Oracle or MS SQL Server databases.
