What is most valuable?

This product is very strong in terms of the meta-model because you can customize a lot according to the business plan. You can customize the models to use, what kinds of objects, and what kinds of attributes, so you can customize almost everything before you start the project, as well as during the… more»

What needs improvement?

The user interface needs improvement because it is not user-friendly. They need dashboards because I think that it is really important in the market at the moment. Dashboards seem to be the solid bridge between the business and IT departments, and I didn't see anything there. The people that are… more»

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

I have worked with similar products in the past, including ARIS. The difference is that the customers are very happy with the support. They are based in Germany, and when the customer asks a question they get an answer very quickly. It is also a more stable product than ABACUS and does not crash as… more»

What other advice do I have?

My advice to anybody who is researching this solution is to consider both the technical support and stability, as well as the technical aspects of the product.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is the traceability, you can trace any object to the other.

This solution is expensive for some people's budgets and they need to offer a Lite version at a cheaper… more»

What other advice do I have?

I am not an implementer or a service provider, I offer consultation and provide solutions in enterprise markets. Part of my job is to recommend and select the tools that are suitable for my clients and stay within their budget. There are times where the open-source tool is the most suitable, whereas at other times I can offer a more complex solution. I would recommend this solution because it has… more»

What is most valuable?

The most valuable features are the catalog and the diagram.

What needs improvement?

The workflow and the collaboration need improvement.

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

I started off with this solution.

What other advice do I have?

I would definitely recommend it but it depends on the use case. If you want a data model of flexibility and catalog scalability I would recommend it from that perspective. For an architecture practice, there's more detailed architecture than enterprise architecture so for that, I wouldn't recommend… more»
