Use Cases

Explore the different ways you can use Ardoq in your organization.

GDPR Documentation for Audit Readiness

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a set of rules that dictate how organizations should collect, store and dispose of the personal data of EU residents. It will go into effect on May 25, 2018.

Accurate documentation of the systems and processes handling user data will help you identify areas where you may or may not be compliant with GDPR, and in the future, serve as a reference in case of audit.

IT Asset Management

An international telecom customer uses Ardoq as a central hub for their IT asset management documentation.

“We have a large dataset, and Ardoq helps us visually understand it. It’s also much easier to automate data import than in other Enterprise Architecture tools, partially because those tools enforce more rigid models.”

Document Functional Requirements

Fjordkraft uses Ardoq to document requirements and acceptance criteria, and to create and track JIRA issues related to them.

“Since using Ardoq we have improved planning and control of the quality assurance process in all internal projects as well as reduced time spent on reporting.”

Senior Rådgiver at Fjordkraft
