We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"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."
"Its availability is very good."
"The most valuable feature is the enterprise module, which provides the capability of having all of the information stored and linked with everything else."
"Archer seamlessly integrates data systems without requiring additional software."
"The most valuable part of the product is the ease-of-use and the opportunity to create custom security applications easily."
"The part I liked about Archer was the risk assessment for deficiencies and being able to use it there."
"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."
"The solution is quite expensive."
"The bullet chart is the best graph for my purposes, and it should be available for inclusion in the dashboards."
"I would like to have the ability to build and maintain an inventory of personal data processing activities and assets utilizing a purpose-built taxonomy and data structure."
"There are some issues with the interface for version 6.5 but these may already be repaired and simplified in the new versions that have been released."
"It's resource-hungry, that's the best way of putting it."
"It is very expensive."
