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

Pros
The feature I find most valuable is that the start times and loading times are short. It takes only a few seconds to load the repository and whenever I want to open diagrams, they are there almost immediately.The initial setup of this solution was very straightforward.The powerful editing function in teamwork project-based, common or shared modeling, based on a powerful repository and knowledge sharing in a portal are the most valuable features. These are the most important features for me. I can add the integration of individual modeling notations like Archimate plus BPMN and DMN, and so on. We travel from one location to another and the tool allows us to keep track.

Cons
The repository of duplicate objects is bad.We tested it, and we had support from BiZZdesign, including patches, but it just didn't do what we wanted.It should be more open to integrating with other existing tools. Although there has been progress in the past.

Using EA involves a steep learning curve if you want to understand its capabilities and functionality.I think that collaboration can be better.It would be nice to have it supported on the Linux operating system.There used to be that feature in ArchiMate Modeling of Enterprise Architect called inherited relationships. Now it's gone.It should be made Windows compatible.The reporting needs improvement.Weak in regards to data modelling. No logical or physical modelling or migration from conceptual to physical.Insufficient control of metadata and standards.
