Very sophisticated meta model, but XMI export / import would ease project work.

What is our primary use case?

Enterprise architecture management typically starting with application landscape. The landscape is then enhanced by information flows and mapping to business as well as technology artifacts. For business catalogues of business domains, business objects, and business functions are most often seen. For technology catalogues of 3rd party software artifacts and deployment stacks are typical. Last but not least, all involved managers love associated people in various roles and immediately start forming official roles like application manager, operations manager, and so on.

What other advice do I have?

It might pay off to build up know-how on planningIT with an internal team. If possible buy the Expand module as well which allows you to configure the product by yourself (training needed). Do not start to big in terms of functionality, focus on a core, always start with establishing a good process for creating and keeping as-is architecture up to date.
