The GUI appears visually appealing, but standardization is lacking

What is our primary use case?

Pros and Cons

  • "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."
  • "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."

It's a lot easier for people to query, create diagrams, and check for modeling rules. The user experience should be improved.

What other advice do I have?

Rating: 5-7 (out of 10). Primarily because of time to market. For instance, before we moved to HOPEX, reporting was meant to be a big thing. They said, "Hey, HOPEX is going to solve most of your reporting problems." We moved to HOPEX, we are still not there yet in terms of what our customers want. In terms of innovation and time to market, we would see a lot of improvement. The core competency from the product is great. Just marketing it and getting it in the hands of the people that will be using the tool, is still a struggle, at least in my enterprise. Other advice to users: get a handle on…

Comprehensive and easy to use IT portfolio management capabilities.

What other advice do I have?

Anyone looking to adopt an enterprise architecture or IT portfolio management solution like HOPEX should consider what aspects of the tool will help them achieve their objectives. Different aspects of the tool address different objectives. In the case that we just discussed, the HOPEX IT portfolio management capability, there's other capabilities as well, which we're currently using. Really determine what aspect of the tool that they would want to implement to really attain the objectives that they're looking to pursue, from either an architecture perspective or an IT portfolio management…

The ability to have standardized reports around obsolescence and lifecycle management is the most valuable. The user experience needs to be more intuitive.

What other advice do I have?

Be very clear on what you need because MEGA has a lot to offer and if you are really going to be able to take advantage of MEGA's portfolio, then you should consider it. Be ready for the journey we went through which took 18 months to get to where we are at.

We use it to help with the alignment of business elements and technology elements. Part of what we're trying to do is to create reports that are architecturally related.

What other advice do I have?

Overall I would say that this platform, addresses the needs better than other solutions we have looked at, it requires less support. We only have myself and one other administrator that support it. We have a very in-depth knowledge of the behind-the-scenes workings of the solution. I do know from personal experience that other solutions have more significant footprint of resources that would have to support it. From database people to administrators, etc. Overall rating: 7-8 (out of 10). Stability is one shortfall and it's probably the major one. I would probably take somewhere between a point…

It's an integrated architecture, so you can depict business processes with BPMN notation, and identify every system that participated in the process then generate the application architecture.

What other advice do I have?

Before implementation, you will find it useful to visit the Mega community website https://community.mega.com/. I found it very helpful on many occasions, for example, you can find many tips about the implementation.

​It provides a central repository of all architecture artifacts. Managing the new licenses and roles was difficult on the initial setup.

What other advice do I have?

Collect accurate and up-to-date data about your environment before implementing an EA tool. Have an approach in terms of what objects to create in the tool in what order. Set up a sandbox environment to familiarize the architects and other users with the tool. Avoid creating extraneous objects in the production environment; start with small set of objects and artifacts that add value and will be used.
