iteraplan is a tool to manage Enterprise architecture with focus on the IT landscape. The aim of iteraplan is to quickly introduce EAM into an organisation, enable tool support for managing the enterprise architecture and facilitate collaboration between different EA relevant stakeholders, such as enterprise architects, project managers, IT staff.
With iteraplan different fields of enterprise architecture can be analysed. The focus not only lies on IT relevant parts, but the whole company is considered, like business architecture, information system architecture and technical architecture. The best practice meta-model is structured as follows.
After capturing the as-is state of the architecture, the desired to-be situation can be modelled. It is possible to develop different (e.g. sequential) to-be states. Furthermore, different graphical reports can be derived from iteraplan. For example, a portfolio- or information flow diagram, allocation tables or lists. All graphical reports can be configured to your needs and saved.
With the Excel or XMI import & export function data can be processed by other programs. A REST interface is available as well.
In addition to the free Lite Edition, there is also a paid Corporate Edition available with several additional features.
The first version of the tool was developed in 2004 and used with customers of iteratec GmbH. The versions 1.0 up to 1.8 (mid of 2007) were only available as closed source.
At the beginning of 2008 iteraplan (now version 2.0) became the first open source EAM tool by providing a completely revised source code on SourceForge. It was released under the open source licence AGPL. Since then, iteraplan has received increasing attention, e.g. from companies like HUK-COBURG, Otto, VKB-Bank but also public authorities like Hamburg Port Authority.
In May 2008 the version 2.1 with fixed bugs and numerous new functions was released. In February 2009 the version 2.2 including many Refactorings was published. In May 2009 version 2.3 added plenty of comfort functions.
The next major update to version 3.0 in April 2012 introduced a clearer user interface based on Twitter Bootstrap. Moreover, the responsive web design enabled usage of iteraplan on smartphones and tablets. The version 3.1 (July 2013) brought new functionality for life cycle management and roadmap planning as well as usability improvements. The version 3.2 from October 2013 introduces a REST-Interface and improves the dashboard functionality and the visualizations. Version 3.3 was developed with a focus on integration and ease of use. In the version 3.4, the integration and especially the import and export has been improved and accelerated. From version 3.4 on the iteraplan source code is no longer available under AGPL-license.
With the release 5.3 in August 2016 a plugin API was introduced, with which data calculations can be automated, amongst others. In addition, the Graphics Reactor has been extended so that up-to-date reports and visualizations can be provided to the whole organisation. The release 5.4 adds three new diagrams to the interactive client, amongst other things. Version 5.5 introduces the Navigator feature.
The release 6.0  finalizes the new Interactive Client. Additionally, dashboards and the administration of iteraplan have been improved. In release 6.1  the data model and the Plugin API are enhanced, and global customizations of the application are also possible, e.g. regarding Look&Feel. With the release 6.2 the Data Navigator and several diagrams are extended, there is now also a comment function. In addition, the application offers a GDPR-compliant option to remove personal data. In Release 6.3, a new survey function for decentralized data maintenance has been added, as well as a HotSpot diagram and the Diagram Builder for creating your own visualizations.
For the next years updates are scheduled for April and October. The company iteratec employs all active developers of this project and offers consulting, training and support, among other things.
