The difference between a platform such as ArenaCore and the use of diagramming products such as MS Visio is that ArenaCore has deep knowledge of the products and structures used, and can orchestrate design changes across associated operational management tools such as downstream configuration management, monitoring and trouble ticketing systems.
ArenaCore can serve as a unification layer across solution design and management activities – across both technology stacks and system, team, supplier & partner interactions.
Naturally we understand that there is no system that can do everything for everyone.
ArenaCore has a high level role to play and hands detailed management of complex items to to other specialised products and platforms. This is explained further in Scope (boundary) of ArenaCore capabilities.
