Stable with the potential to scale and integrates well with Microsoft

What is our primary use case?

The solution is mainly used for technology architecture. Clients need to model infrastructure network solutions that they have. There is no focus on business modeling.

Pros and Cons

  • "The solution has wide use within Microsoft products. The integration with Microsoft products, and, in particular, Microsoft Office, is great."
  • "The migration tool needs to be included in the main package, and not as a separate license."

What other advice do I have?

I'm a consultant. I work with the product, however, I am not a customer. We typically deal with the on-premises deployment model as our clients aren't well-versed in the cloud just yet. I'd advise that those who wish to implement the solution ensure they are well trained on it beforehand. I'd rate the solution eight out of ten. If the performance was better, I would rate it much higher.

Simple and flexible with solid stability

What is our primary use case?

We use this solution mainly for enterprise solution architecture as well as modeling and development.

Pros and Cons

  • "I have to think less with this solution. It's simple."
  • "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."

What other advice do I have?

First, decide on the deployment model. Secondly, I would recommend doing the training first. iServer is very easy to learn by yourself, but you can get stuff done quicker if you do the training before you start using it. I would rate it as eight out of ten. If they added data-driven modeling, I would rate it as a nine or ten.
