Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"The most valuable features for us are impact analysis, where I can easily visualize the impact of change.""The initial setup was really straightforward and the deployment was done within one day.""The ability to share and collaborate on the solution is its most valuable feature.""We use erwin Evolve to publish to the website. This allows us to enable publishing our website using parameterisation features. In a very fast, quick way, we can publish a table or chart onto a website.""I can send images in the PDF form, along with the relationships and the associations that are a very important part of what we do. It can show what is affected and what is impacted by a certain change in one area of the system architecture or enterprise architecture. I can very quickly draw those issues and topics to the fore.""I have not seen capabilities for web-sharing and interaction with the architecture from any other supplier. It's a great capability...""By placing the data and the metadata into a model, which is what the tool does, you gain the abilities for linkages between different objects in the model, linkages that you cannot get on paper or with Visio or PowerPoint. That is a huge discriminator.""There is a model behind it. It's really nice that the Evolve front-end, as it builds a website, keeps those relationships in mind. You can even go to a procedure and see all the applications that are related to it. Then you can go into that application and see all the standard operating procedures that that application is a part of. It's just very connected."

"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
"I feel that the UML drawing capability needs to be improved.""I would like to see an improvement in the output of the solution.""The solution needs to focus on allowing for more integrations.""The way that we are using it for application management, we have several KPIs. We want to follow and monitor them regarding a number of solutions. We cannot calculate this today. We would like real-time calculations along with the KPIs in order to improve the user experience. We would like the tool to be able to display this, not only as signals, but as charts.""The solution's integration capabilities with other tools in our system has not been all that well done. We have people who use ARIS, who use System Architect and, of course, Visio. erwin has very limited ways to import and export from those kinds of tools. It's not a very easy thing to do.""With the Excel importing, the "up to date" part is the challenge. If we had a real-time integration, we could keep things up to date for whatever kinds of change points we had. With Excel, it is more that you have to export from one system then import it to another, so it's better for data that doesn't change that often.""I would like it to be easier to make changes and then deploy them into production, especially when you have multiple web servers or front-ends. It would be nice to make a change and then have it propagate to the production servers in a more automated fashion.""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."

"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
"On a yearly basis, our licensing costs are 50,000 euro. There are no additional costs because we are on a SaaS model.""The cost is something like $15,000, per license. But I haven't looked at those numbers in three years. It was over $100,000 to initially set everything up and get it all configured.""The licensing enables you to differentiate between people who edit the content and the people who consume it. We are able to keep the licensing costs down by keeping the "contributor" licenses to a minimum, and we then just roll out the content in a read-only version for the rest of our users.""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.""Yearly, our cost is €100,000."

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