Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"Tech support is very responsive. They solved issues within a prompt response time.""iServer is a solution that helps catalog enterprise architect solutions and catalog information.""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 »

"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 definitely needs help to improve the visual aspect of the solution.""There are other solutions out there that have a better user interface.""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."

More iServer 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."
