Be ready to engage your stakeholders far beyond IT with tailored messages and insights using event-driven automation and graph analysis. Broadcasts makes collaboration a breeze, enabling you to build trust and data confidence when collecting and distributing information across the organization.

With Broadcasts, you are able to:

🚀 Send out Survey invitations and reminders

🚀 Set up data-driven alerts

🚀 Build workflows to orchestrate tasks between team members (including simple approval workflows to take care of your governance needs)

...all based on the structure of your architecture models - giving you full control over who receives your message and under which conditions.
