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

Pros
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 for this solution is the automatic updating and propagation of changes across the system.You do not need to be a professional of enterprise modeling to contribute to the enrichment and improvement of the enterprise repository.It generates friendly websites and presents specific views of the enterprise (business, functional, applicative, technological, and infrastructure).MEGA offers a more integrated GRC platform to facilitate enhanced coordination between the functions of Risk, Compliance, and Internal Audit on a single platform solution - HOPEX.The dashboard on the homepage makes for an enhanced view at a glance of the various work functions applicable to the user.

The Data Objects are hyperlinked to the Standard Operating Procedures, Letters, and Forms.I enjoy the fact that I can go into detail with Visio. In shared communications, I can inspect for any fault in my processes.It is easy to learn and implement.Putting details into the process flow and being able to link other objects into the diagrams are very helpful features.Visio has improved our organization through an essential collaboration with the other Microsoft applications like SharePoint and Excel. So basically in the earlier days, what used to happen, a majority of the organization captured all the as-is process, the time and motion data in the form of Excel and then they used to create process diagrams using other freeware applications. Collaboration allows easy and convenient sharing with other stakeholders, that is really helpful with Visio.The most valuable feature is the ability to draw models quickly.The diagramming and swimlane features allow for separating business functions.We can easily add templates to SharePoint for collaboration.

Cons
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.We would like to see integration with other products, such as being able to use our workflow with SharePoint and Microsoft Office.Needs a friendlier import/export to other modeling tools.Standardization is lacking. The Operational Risk Function will be more effective if it at a default level follows established Basel standards for Loss categorization, Risk Assessments, Risk Event categorization, etc.

The Auto-Align has improved significantly from the previous release; however, it still jumbles the model if your process diagram has a fair degree of complexity.Transferring data was one of the issues that I expected Visio to have resolved. I use the older version.It does not integrate well with other solutions.I would like to be able to present diagrams in multiple ways, such as a Swimlane diagram.The one particular thing which I would like to see improved is in comparison to other products in the market, and is still lacking in Visio, is publishing on a web application. For example, there is a freeware application business process modeling tool, Bizagi.I would like to see included in the next release is the implementation of web publishing.I would like to see traceability. It doesn't have it. You cannot find one object amongst several sheets of Visio diagrams.It could use easier custom icon sets.
