Clearvision enables a business to create a holisitic map or model of its ecosystem - this is critical to realise the value of the whole business as being greater than the sum of its parts.


A whole business is connected, the parts can deliver more effectively when the effect/benefits of their connections are utilised correctly.

Digital transformation is providing access to big data, collaboration across silos and connected customer engagement – Clearvision provides the business model to realise constant transformation and forecast the effect.

Clearvision enables Minimum Viable Transformation through its model of the business ecosystem – a proven way of delivering constant, connected change.

"Business ecosystems continue to evolve, becoming the basis of innovative business models. To succeed, organizations must design creative business models, and create the underpinning operating model - Gartner 2018"


Your digital ecosystem model provides the framework from where you can deliver transformation.


People, organisational groups; any level of detail can be created – for example through to competence and skills of the internal and external staff.  Technology architecture, application services, physical and virtual infrastructure can all be represented in the model – they can be loaded or integrated from existing.  And the business information model is defined within the digital ecosystem.

Strategic goals and needed capabilities are integrated into the model – then projects, portfolios and transformation initiatives can be checked for meeting the vision and the scope of work defined and shared across the basic dimensions – this ensures people change like upskilling, retraining is synchronised.


Planning from Vision to Action is easier with all the interdependencies and connections in the model.



Clearvision’s concept is based on providing a model of a corporation business ecosystem.  It’s both a sandbox for modelling possible change, and an operational mapping tool to manage complex transformation in progress.

Starting with a small area of the ecosystem is both effective and removes the long-term big-bang delivery issues.  It also starts with Minimum Viable Transformation - deliver measured benefit in small parts, and repeat.


In this digital business model all inter-dependencies are connected and defined,  they're used to check timing, correct capability delivery with no overlap or gaps.  Clearvision provides this digital ecosystem as the next generation of business modelling to enable and operate digital business in constant, Minimum Viable Transformation.

What's under the hood?

From a technology perspective, Clearvision is designed to cope with today’s big data world.


The amount of data available to us in business and personal life increases exponentially over time.


At the heart of the Clearvision service is the digital business ecosystem model, this definition of your world is called an ontology.


The Entity Builder is where the ontology is defined and where the relationships between entities that comprise your world are made.


Because of the complexity inherent in a corporate business ecosystem, standard tables, columns and rows are replaced by graph technology to store and manage the complexity.  (Clearvision is graph/cloud agnostic, we run on your choice)


The scalability of storage and computing power in a cloud environment makes it the best place for the Clearvision service.


Combined with open Application Programme Interface layer to enable data connectivity outside-in/inside-out, the core Clearvision model can be structured to use and support external systems.


Standard tools for visualisation and report building are available from both Clearvision or your preferred solutions can be integrated.


Given the range of complexity of both the model and report/visual output – user functionality is managed accordingly.

As-Is! Static modelling

As-Is, static modelling is the first step in using your business ecosystem model, benefits are achieved by visualising the connected model.

•  Resource management - internal/external/ competence to capability to project/programme

•  Portfolio dependencies – visualise cause and effect from bottom up and top down across portfolios

•  Partner/capability mapping

•  Information flow, gap, duplication modelling

•  Snapshot risk/impact analysis – interdependencies, resource, scope, time, cost, benefit delivery

•  Culture mapping – how who works with what and what are the KPIs like

What if? Dynamic modelling

(Dynamic modelling requires the basic ontology of the digital business ecosystem as the core data frame – the entities-attributes-relationships are then used in multi-agent analyses – the rules for negotiation and decision are defined for the multi-agent – for example, priority, cost, time, deliverable output, benefit KPIs)


•  Resource allocation and gap, time series/critical path analysis – manipulate available resource to assess best result, “what-if” scenario plan providing alternatives

•  Resource competence/capability mapping – forecast need and combine/balance with output from previous example

•  Portfolio project delivery analysis – calculate resource, scope, time, cost to see best-fit path and alternatives

•  Partner planning – map contracted capabilities and other available capabilities, add lifecycle maturity, scenario plan partnerships over time to support future contract definitions

Typical Examples


The ontology, a description of your business entities, their relationships and attributes are the framework around which you model the ecosystem to plan transformation.

Stored in an easy to change format - this enables analysis and constant evolution matching your business.

When the ontology is loaded with the attributes of your business - different visualisations can better show opportunities and threats to continuous transformation which is a core practice of running a digital business.

While Technology and Data are two important dimensions, Competence, Culture and Experience are equally important and should be built into your model.
