Approach to Integration

Why Separate?

Knowledge workers are heavily involved in structuring, managing, and displaying results of their work. These activities need tools. A single tool is not practical because the overall work process requires numerous tools. In practice knowledge workers do one activity at a time, including thinking and structuring; avoiding obstacles and managing results; and drawing descriptive sketches. At any one time knowledge workers need a range of professional tools to perform any specific activity. For this reason, the user interface of the application needs to focus on each activity. For example, a professional carpenter has a tool belt with many individual tools for building a house. No professional carpenter has ever requested a universal tool to function as a paint brush, measuring tape, and sledge hammer.

ConceptDraw OFFICE

Knowledge workers require automation to manage their activities. ConceptDraw OFFICE provides a set of tools that meet this requirement. ConceptDraw MINDMAP identifies and structures ideas and generates final documents and presentations. Use ConceptDraw PROJECT to assign tasks and report completeness of multiple projects. Use ConceptDraw DIAGRAM to build technical schemes and diagrams for documentation and also to create status dashboards. All these products provide a tool set for professionals in your organization. Choose the proper tools to get the best results.

Why Together?

Combining the tools in our work we go from one tool to another tool. We finish working with one tool and move to another tool. This reduces productivity because we must transfer our data from one application to another. ConceptDraw products are tightly integrated so time wasted switching from one tool to another is eliminated.

Why Use Data Technologies?

The amount of time used to switch your work data inside ConceptDraw applications is minimal and there is never a penalty for switching back and forth between tools. Now you can change tools as often as required. ConceptDraw OFFICE lets you use the proper tool at the proper moment, for the proper effect. The data integration technologies in OFFICE connect your working applications using technical solutions from ConceptDraw Solutions. This integration allows your applications to work together as a single tool for accomplishing your goals.
