Quotes From Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
"If you face new challenges or issues then you can dynamically customize according to the business needs.""The most valuable feature is the traceability, you can trace any object to the other.""The most valuable feature is that it has a customizable meta-model, which is key.""The technical support is very good. They are responsive and the answers they provide are detailed.""The product is easy to use and well-structured for the integrations we need it to make.""The ease of modeling and the ease of showing interconnectivity and relationships is the most valuable. It is fairly simple and out of the box. It is customizable in many ways. It is a pretty good tool."

"The most valuable feature for this solution is the automatic updating and propagation of changes across the system.""The initial setup was straightforward. With configuration, customizing or prepping the data and deployment, it took about one year to set up. We only needed two people to deploy and maintain the solution: one business architect and someone who specializes in customization and operations.""The most valuable feature of this solution is the reuse of common enterprise components and entities.""I find the IT portfolio management very valuable and helpful.""The solution is scalable. If a company needs to expand it, it's completely possible to do so.""The most valuable feature is that the software controls everything from a single management window.""Every module sets up the same information in a unique repository.""This is a complete package with all of the functionality that we need."

Cons
"It is vastly scalable but you can't run it on a Mac or Linux so it has limitations.""The most valuable features are the catalog and the diagram.""If they want to expand in the European market then they are going to have to improve their technical support.""While this is one of the most powerful tools on the market it does not integrate well with Microsoft Office or others.""The reporting could be easier to configure.""The company needs to update the UML version they are using for the product as it is quite old.""They should take more initiative to implement things that competing products have already come out with.""It doesn't have the simulation capability, which would be helpful in doing some business process analysis and improvements."

More Avolution ABACUS Cons »

"We would like to see integration with other products, such as being able to use our workflow with SharePoint and Microsoft Office.""They do tend to push people to their professional services, instead of helping the customers with their problems. I understand this is their business. At the same time, however, they need to work on fact sheets or offer some program to help the customers who want to implement it themselves and to make it run properly in their environment.""The tool usability is weak and it also has a high learning curve.""Scalability can be a problem sometimes.""The features are limited. I'm hoping in the future the solution will be bigger and include more items. Right now, overall, it needs more.""I would like to see more regular updates released.""Lacking more out of the box integrations.""Better documentation and training would be helpful."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"This solution is expensive for some people's budgets and they need to offer a Lite version at a cheaper price""To get a fairly extensive license for Enterprise Architects from Spark is approximately US $400.00, maybe less, but with Avolution Abacus it was approximately US $2000.00 per year, and that includes maintenance with the Abacus tool.""The pricing is quite good compared to the competition and it is part of the reason we chose the product.""It is competitive. It is not chump change. I am just using the studio version. I am not using the full enterprise version, which would probably cost me three times more for single-use, but it gives a lot more capability and analysis. It is server-based as well, and it is reasonably priced compared to a lot of the other tools. There are other tools that have other sorts of capabilities, but in order to use them, you'd really have to have like 50 users for the price to become justifiable."

"If you want to use additional features, such as the Risk Management capability, then it is a little too expensive.""It is very expensive."
