Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"I have to think less with this solution. It's simple.""This is a flexible tool compared to some other solutions.""The solution has wide use within Microsoft products. The integration with Microsoft products, and, in particular, Microsoft Office, is great."

More iServer Pros »

"We've been able to develop some nice looking reports, and the dashboard's capability to map is very easy compared to Enterprise Architect.""The usability is very high. It almost looks like a Facebook for Enterprise architecture, it's pretty nice. It's HTML5 based. The repository is very easy. It has 10 different ways of sorting the objects you have in your architecture repository. Maintaining new data or to add data to your repository is very easy.""The most valuable features are that it's user-friendly and the user experience. It's easy to map the fact sheets.""Among the most valuable features are the easy-to-use interface and the ability to get quick results... Many tools that I have seen are great for technical people and for giving technical and business information as well, but they're not as friendly and easy as LeanIX... It works well for both technical and business users. It provides a good combination, enabling you to quickly put valuable information in for both technical and non-technical people and derive results."

Cons
"The one issue is that if you want to import predefined work, you need to put the licensing model in. So if you wanted to import work that was done before, you then need to buy a separate product for that.""The performance is slow, which is something that should be improved.""The migration tool needs to be included in the main package, and not as a separate license."

"It's hard to predict the pricing of the system.""Not a ten because you always have that gap between complexity and easy to use. And the more complex the tool becomes, the more difficult it is to get the usability.""They should improve the out of the box connectors that they provide. They should see if clients are really ready to adapt them.""Another area for improvement is that when you're starting to look into more advanced information, using the solution's APIs and its customizations, documentation for that specific aspect is not very good. There is not too much support built into the offering for that aspect, for a developer."
