PwC and Ardoq enter partnership

PwC and Ardoq have entered a non-commercial partnership. With this partnership, PwC has strengthened its toolbox with a world class documentation platform that can be adapted to its clients’ varying documentation requirements without subjecting them to huge frameworks or complicated standards.

Thanks to Ardoq’s collaborative features and interactive visualizations, PwC can deliver even greater value to its clients. The partnership is the result of several successful projects in which PwC has utilized Ardoq to solve specific customer challenges that have required a feature-rich documentation platform.

In a recent architecture and program management project for a Nordic mail and logistics company, the client chose Ardoq’s cloud solution to create dynamic project documentation. Ardoq allows multiple stakeholders to collaborate on mapping project phases and milestones, then enabling them to set up custom visualizations to accommodate for their exact requirements. These visualizations combine properties and dependencies to communicate efficiently to the various business entities how and when specific project milestones will impact on them.

Ardoq gains great value from PwC’s domain expertise, expansive experience, and in-depth insight into customer needs.

Capgemini partnership takes aim at GDPR readiness

Capgemini partnership announced

Oslo, February 28, 2017

Technology consulting company Capgemini Norway will leverage the Ardoq platform to document and support projects ranging from digital transformation to GDPR readiness by implementing security by design.

Capgemini has one of the most experienced architect communities in the world. They have delivered incredible value to their clients by transforming their digital visions into coherent architectures.

GDPR Readiness

Read about Ardoq’s GDPR compliance documentation capabilities

In May 2018, a new data privacy regulation called the GDPR will go into effect. At that point, any business that collects or processes user data in the EU will be subject to the regulation, and the steep associated fines. The regulation marks a broadened scope of European digital privacy laws, which will soon apply to businesses outside the EU.

In anticipation of this, both Capgemini and Ardoq have prioritized providing services for GDPR audit readiness. With Capgemini’s seasoned consulting expertise and Ardoq’s agile approach to capturing business insights, the companies hope their new partnership will result in valuable insights for their customers’ preparations towards GDPR readiness.

As the result of collaborating on the first GDPR projects Ardoq and Capgemini have developed a standardized package which can be rolled out rapidly to new and existing customers. Capgemini is working on a standard set of guiding materials that will support stakeholders to share insights into their current status in regards to GDPR compliance. This GDPR readiness package is an evolving collaboration between Ardoq and Capgemini.

Quotes

“Working with Ardoq over the last 12 months has been an eye-opener. The level of insight we get by using Ardoq helps us to understand and discuss our concerns in a meaningful way.

Using my experience in security and architecture to support the evolution of Ardoq has been a tremendous journey. I have started to realize many years of ideas – to make information security by design, and to derive security goals directly from business goals. Having everything documented and up-to-date in Ardoq has been a game changer for helping enterprise and security architects communicate with CxOs.”

Thorbjørn Ellefsen, Cybersecurity Lead, Capgemini Norway

“We’ve worked closely with Capgemini for a long time, and they have provided invaluable insight into customer needs. We’re very excited to enter into a formal partnership with them, and look forward to continuing our relationship.”
