Strategy Architect (SA) System

OVERVIEW

Horizons Strategy Architect (SA) is an automated software solution for implementing the Balanced Scorecard in a collaborative strategic performance management framework. It enables real-time automatic recording of the BSC performance measures to its information sources. It provides dash boards at various levels and various BSC components such as perspectives, measures, and initiatives. SA also supports unlimited number of interdependent BSCs (Cascaded BSCs). It deploys enterprise-wide, and is integrated with windows LDAP or other users’ authorization technology. Administration utilities are used to grant access rights to various groups.
SA uses unique visual modeling technology to model the strategic and performance architecture of an enterprise and extract computed data from various operational data stores to present distilled visual scorecards in a web-based front end. This enables a fast development and deployment of BSC systems.
The users can access the SA online or offline and browse data in full value mode or in summarized visual index mode. With SA you can proactively monitor performance against company targets and plan for corrective actions much sooner than before.
