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 is the ability to quickly build multiple layers within the organizational and business process environments, as well as in the SysML product environments, and converting to files that can be accessed by clients who do not have a system and a teamwork server access.""The technical support is very good.""When you look at it, No Magic is an all-encompassing tool. You can use it for business architecture design. You can use it for deploying an ERP system across your enterprise. However, it was initially designed and developed for model-based systems engineering. That's the systems engineering required to either produce an IP system or product. It takes away the mounds of paper and puts it into a model. It enables you to generate significant savings by modeling that new product or that system before you ever start developing a prototype.""The most valuable feature is the amount of flexibility that one has to model, which is great for an individual.""The most valuable features are the visibility, standard compliance, and interface.""I would rate MagicDraw a nine out of ten because of the price. Enterprise Architect has a lot of bugs and MagicDraw is a lot more accurate and flexible. It's a level better."

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."

"I would like to see the ability to deploy live business process models and capture real-time data (without the need for another product tool) so you don't have to be dependent on other products for this functionality.""The cost of upgrading the product should be lower.""There's lots of documentation. They process multiples of guides. They've got all kinds of guides and documentation out there, but it's kind of hard to find. There are a lot of videos. You can go to YouTube and find videos on how it's been used in different ways, but it just kind of scratches the surface.""When I am working with my Mac and I right-click to copy and paste, it doesn't work.""It's very focused on specific modern languages and it doesn't do necessarily general systems software engineering with diagrams. They should expand the diagram types for the languages.""The licenses are expensive compared to similar tools. At the moment, the user is open to using MagicDraw if it's 15% more than other solutions. If it were to cost any more, they wouldn't use it."

Pricing and Cost Advice
Information Not Available
"In addition to the initial cost, you have to pay annually for support in order to get the upgrades.""I would say licensing would be anywhere from $3,500 to $6,500 per person or per seat (it's a per seat style license)."
