What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature for us is the visibility to open and enable notifications to the web interface for users that we want to prevent. Therefore, we are able to… more »

How has it helped my organization?

We use erwin Evolve to publish to the website. This allows us to enable publishing our website using parameterisation features. In a very fast, quick way, we can publish a… more »

What needs improvement?

The web interface could be more user-friendly. When you are publishing in the IT landscape, there is no real way right now to have a template that can alter the automated… more »

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

On a yearly basis, our licensing costs are 50,000 euro. There are no additional costs because we are on a SaaS model.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We previously used MEGA HOPEX. We switched for two main reasons: * The cost. * The complexity of media texts which was making it really difficult to maintain and share… more »

What other advice do I have?

We didn't have the perfect design on the paper before starting to implement it. We just started to implement it, then tried to use it. It is better to try and hope than… more »

We evaluated about 10 product besides erwin, such as MEGA HOPEX, Signavio, BiZZdesign, and LeanIX.

What is most valuable?

The generational DDLs and the graphics are the solution's most valuable aspects. The solution is a very pragmatic tool. It's quite easy to use. The solution is very good for data modeling on a conceptual and physical level. There are a lot of design tools that are very complicated to use, and… more »

What needs improvement?

I don't know of any features the solution is lacking. It would be helpful if there were glossary, catalog and governance tools. It would help make it a true end-to-end product.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We occasionally do migrations from MEGA HOPEX to PowerDesigner.

What other advice do I have?

We don't have a business relationship with SAP. We prefer to keep our relationship independent and have no direct relationships with them at the moment. It's certainly a good strategy to migrate to this solution from another tool, but I wouldn't recommend anyone start using it by trying out a… more »

What is most valuable?

The most valuable features are the completeness, and the repos included on the platform. The solution offers very good management.

What needs improvement?

The user experience, the layout and the different technologies behind the presentations are a bit old. These need to be updated. They should focus on web development. It's simply not supporting the current user experience guidelines. The… more »

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We had a custom made internal solution before switching to Alfabet.

What other advice do I have?

We only used the solution for a few months because it was only a proof of concept and since it was really expensive, we decided to choose another solution. We tested the solution for three months. Our organization used the private cloud… more »

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We evaluated iServer, and MEGA among others, but the main issue was the pricing of such technology. It is quite a large investment.
