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

Pros
One of the most valuable features is the website that sits on top of the database. There's a database of objects and how they are related, and you can make views and diagrams and visual elements out of that information on the website. The website is the part that is called Evolve and we use the Evolve Designer and publish the website out to our employees. They can click around and navigate and search, etc.The most valuable features for us are impact analysis, where I can easily visualize the impact of change.

The most valuable feature is that the software controls everything from a single management window.The solution is scalable. If a company needs to expand it, it's completely possible to do so.We don't use the entire solution, however, even the small sections we have access to work well for our company and our purposes.I find the IT portfolio management very valuable and helpful.The most valuable feature of this solution is the reuse of common enterprise components and entities.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 for this solution is the automatic updating and propagation of changes across the system.You do not need to be a professional of enterprise modeling to contribute to the enrichment and improvement of the enterprise repository.

Cons
What they need to do is to consolidate more of their products. For example, I was just looking and I couldn't figure out what erwin DT is. It's on the website but it would help if they could put information together and make it more clear as to what products they have and how they work with other things.I feel that the UML drawing capability needs to be improved.

I would like to see more regular updates released.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.The solution is a bit expensive. They could work to make it more competitive.Scalability can be a problem sometimes.The tool usability is weak and it also has a high learning curve.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.We would like to see integration with other products, such as being able to use our workflow with SharePoint and Microsoft Office.Needs a friendlier import/export to other modeling tools.

Pricing and Cost Advice
I estimate that we pay between $40,000 and $50,000 a year for the solution, not including the upfront costs to buy things the first time.

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