"As the business environment gets tougher, there is a greater need for strategic IT planning, so IT departments are able to enable change instead of just reacting to it," said Bola Rotibi, principal analyst at Ovum. "CIOs need the ability to make decisions that factor in the whole IT environment, and will be best served by tools and services that have built-in responses to real life scenarios and requirements gained from collaboration with a strong portfolio of end-user organizations," said Rotibi.

"We knew that Troux 7.0 was a groundbreaking product. We realized that if we could add new capabilities quickly it would help companies remain competitive given the current economic climate," said Matt Price, vice president of worldwide marketing for Troux. "The speed of this release was made possible by the flexibility of the Troux product architecture and the innovative agile development methods employed by the Troux research and development team. With Troux 7, the goal was to educate business on the value of transformative intelligence. With 7.1 we are helping them realize that value fast," Price said.

Troux 7.1 has been enhanced with a host of new capabilities, from new decision-support functionality to collaborative tools, integrations and an array of new reports.

New Product Enhancements: — Decision Support: Among the compelling additions to Troux 7.1 are Flash-based visualizations (heat maps, base maps, and cluster maps) that spur operational insight and provide decision makers with tools to increase the agility of strategic IT planning. — Web-based Collaboration for IT Planners: Troux 7.1 provides a rich collaborative work environment that allows users to create discussion threads and relate them to objects within the data repository. Known as Troux Collaboration(TM), this "journaling" functionality increases productivity for teams working together by providing a continuous record of changes and decisions. — Out-of-the-box insight and impact analysis reports: Troux Applications(TM) adds new reports to support the roles of executive management and portfolio planners. These reports empower decision makers with valuable intelligence they need to execute transformations. Additionally, Troux 7.1 has a new "opportunity finder" that enables planners to look deeply into the organization to uncover opportunities for optimization. — Enterprise Fit: Troux 7.1 easily integrates into existing IT ecosystems. For example, it now supports integration with BPA tools such as Visual Paradigm, enabling customers to bring their business architecture into Troux using Business Process Management standards. Also, Troux Intelligence(TM) — Troux's business intelligence engine for IT — now integrates directly with SAP's Business Objects and IBM's Cognos business intelligence software. — Data Quality and Productivity: Troux Integrity(TM) allows notifications to users and reminds them of obligations to refresh data for which they're responsible. This new functionality ensures the high data quality necessary to support strategic IT decision making with confidence in the accuracy and freshness of the information. — Integration: Troux Applications integrates seamlessly with Troux Standards(TM) allowing customers to identify infrastructure-related portfolio risk.
