A collection of individual solutions restricts organizations. The answer is a Data-Centric platform like ARONTO, which enables companies to say goodbye to the application-centric approach and thus to individual solutions and to develop into a data-driven company. With ARONTO it is no longer about solving a single use case at the departmental level. With ARONTO data silos are minimized. Silos cost money, reduce the quality of decisions and ultimately slow down the organization. The data-centric approach is an integrated approach to corporate information management that enables decisions based on a wide range of information, resulting in increased flexibility at the lowest possible cost.

ARONTO gives your organization the means to solve a wide range of business problems: from asset management or IT service management and compliance tracking to contract management, HR onboarding etc. – all in one central platform with a single data model.

The single data model used by ARONTO is an Enterprise Ontology and is a Knowledge Graph. The Knowledge Graph refers to a method of organizing data that highlights relationships between data points. Graph data look like a network of interconnected points. This is in contrast to databases like Oracle or MySQL- relational systems- in which data are stored in tables. Relational systems are designed for stable business processes in which the data model does not change. This stability orientation leads to a problematic rigidity in the data integration. It offers no flexibility for the data analysis and prevents the representation of situational or changing realities. With its ability to make real context understandable, a knowledge graph is the ideal tool for storing company data. Instead of processing data by combining tables, the data are unified by the ability of graphs and ontology. A knowledge graph transforms your data into machine-readable knowledge. Data have a meaning. They become semantic.

ARONTO is also a NO-Code platform. For an application the entire knowledge about business objects such as products, services, processes and guidelines are recorded in a model. These models can be executed directly as an application without additional code intervention and can be easily interpreted by non IT staff. ARONTO applications can be easily adapted as the external environment changes. This change is made immediately in the application. The No-Code capability frees up 80+% of the company’s IT capacity compared to current efforts, which leads to massive time and cost savings resulting in a significant competitive advantage.

ARONTO applications are Intelligent Applications. With ARONTO processes and data are combined in order to enable both typical workflow applications and analytical applications as well as process automation along processes and lifecycles based on the Knowledge Graph data model. The ARONTO data import integrates the data for a specific customer product, device or business unit and combines the data in a singlegraph data base with its own schema. Business unit or domain data can be managed in separate partitions. Each partition is stored in memory for optimal performance and scalability. With ARONTO applications one finds more relevant information through intelligent searches. It is better understood what is happening by using the relationship between data to predict and interpret change. One gets high transparency through shared meaning and mutual understanding of the semantic data effectiveness and efficiency increase significantly due to the possibility of rapid changes in the event of changes in the business.

With ARONTO intelligent applications you can proactively manage IT assets to minimize risc, offer a 360-degree customer perspective, improve company-wide data management, provide actionable data to researchers and modernize model-based system engineering workflows.
