Objective of ProMoTE Architecture­ Management

The ProMoTE Architecture Management should

  • connect the operational needs with the technical solutions
  • align the portfolio of process, method and IT projects with the strategic goals of the TE
  • offer new projects a guidance for the integration into the existing project landscape
  • provide an overview of existing and planned things at any time.


From the first idea in 2008 till today, the Softplant GmbH has been involved as a strategic partner in the planning and implementation of these objectives. In close cooperation with our client, we have identified the needs for action, developed the appropriate solutions.

Extent of the ProMoTE Architecture Management

Starting with an IT focused view, the ProMoTE Architecture Management has constantly been extended to the include business and process aspects of process, method and IT projects in the TE.

New project proposals are analysed from all necessary dimensions (business, technically and process-related) before they are started as projects. Advisory boards and the required organisation have been established to support project managers during their projects. The ProMoTE Architecture Management methodologically and technically supports project with process models, templates, tools and other supporting resources.

Semantic technologies enable the description of all relevant components of the architecture and their interconnection. The architecture pyramid provides an insight into the scope of the ProMoTE Architecture Management.
