Case Studies

Click the images below to see case studies for some of Troux's world-class customers and how they used Troux to save money, reduce risk, and increase agility.


    Global networking solutions giant Cisco has grown at a breathtaking pace since its founding in 1984, spurred on by an aggressive acquisition strategy. Of its almost 150 acquisitions, nearly 50 have occurred since 2007 and several have become $1 billion business units (BUs). 

    While Cisco is widely known and respected for its best practices in integrating acquisitions, the process is not as easy as it looks. Each acquisition presents a fresh challenge to assess operating models and merge them with Cisco’s own.


    Bayer has used Troux to manage and optimize its landscape across information, technology, applications and business architecture portfolios. 

    “One of the key benefits Troux brings is that they are not afraid to tell you exactly what your roadmap should be and how to get there, based on what you want to achieve,” said an IT Architect. “They will do that for the specific situation you are in — they don’t just come up with a generic best-practice roadmap. Their practice directors take the time to know your company
    and make recommendations about what you need to focus on, information you need to collect, conditions and gaps. I think that’s definitely a big strength for Troux"


    Mosaic is a multi-billion dollar global Fortune 500 company that helps the world grow the food it needs.  When the company's CIO laid out a vision for IT a plan was developed to support the change from a tactical approach to decision-making toward a strategic approach that would focus on business outcomes and measurable contribution to Mosaic’s long-term success.  This meant Mosaic's IT team needed to be more efficient, reduce rework, and provide guidance that would help business leaders make better decisions.  

    That's when Mosaic decided to partner with Troux.  Through the combination of Troux solutions and Accelerator methodology the Mosaic team was able to establish Application Portfolio Management program within just 17 weeks and identify millions of dollars in potential recurring cost savings.


    With a laser-focus on delivering cost-effective, high quality Medicaid related solutions that meet the health care needs of disadvantaged families, Molina Healthcare has seen a three-fold increase in managed care members over the past ten years. With health care reform and implementation of the Affordable Care Act the company expects revenues to double in short order as the number of members receiving health care balloons.

    In addition to supporting an overarching governance initiative to better meet more stringent regulatory health care requirements, significant growth resulted in a variety of disparate IT systems.

    As California’s largest State department, the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation is continually under pressure to streamline operations and more tightly control costs. To make things even more challenging CDCR was faced with managing the consolidation of multiple departments in the midst of their cost control efforts.  The CDCR team found itself governing and managing terabytes of data as well as a complex array of hardware and software with few enterprise procedures and a lack of enterprise-defined technology standards.

    That’s when CDCR decided to partner with Troux to expand EA into a mature, strategic program that allowed the department to strategically align IT investments with business strategies and functions, exposing new opportunities for CDCR.  


    In 2012, the U.S Census Bureau set out to build optimal IT solutions to handle a myriad of challenges to the business.

    With an Enterprise Architecture (EA) discipline enabled by Troux, the Bureau now has a more integrated business overall, underpinned by an IT decision-making process, collaborative governance, and a common knowledge base. It all adds up to increased agility, efficiency and innovation.
