Austin, Texas - (May 11th, 2008) - Troux Technologies today announced that Seco Tools, part of the world's largest tools manufacturing group, has selected Troux's breakthrough strategic IT planning software platform, to support an enterprise-wide business transformation. Following an extensive evaluation of Enterprise Architecture and Business Process Modeling software solutions, Troux was selected based on its sole ability to enable and support a number of transformations planned by Seco Tools' executives.

Troux's software platform and products unlock the power of Enterprise Architecture (EA) to support business initiatives such as corporate cost reduction, geographic expansion, business consolidation, and mergers and acquisitions. These initiatives require instant visibility into the interdependencies of the organization's applications, technology, processes and people.

“Troux alone offered the solid data platform that enabled the analytics which are vital to the success of our transformation initiatives” said Anders Lindahl, enterprise architect at Seco Tools. “Additionally, the breadth and depth of reporting to multiple stakeholders will enable us to communicate the success of our programs, which will in turn garner support for more comprehensive initiatives to grow market share and ensure our competitive edge.”

Seco Tools will be implementing the newest version of Troux's strategic IT planning software, Troux 7 released late last year. In developing its latest release, Troux worked closely with a number of key customers to identify the most useful and innovative business and IT transformations including: Application Consolidation; Application Reduction; SOA Investment Planning; IT Simplification; IT Standards Management; Outsourcing; and Infrastructure Consolidation.
