RSA Archer Scalability

This is a very scalable solution. After we implemented this solution, two different departments saw it and were impressed with the tool and how the work could be done centrally. We spoke with the vendor and added the scope for these departments. Now, it is centralized throughout the company. We do plan to increase our usage of this solution. Its capabilities are almost infinite, but we're probably utilizing just twenty percent of it. We know its capabilities and what it can do, but there is a shortage in the availability of resources that can actually utilize the tool. There are perhaps three or four people that can use at least forty percent of the functionality. We've assigned a task to a few team members so that someone can get a fresh look at how we can fully utilize it. It's a heavy tool and we want to use it. The problem is that it's just not that easy because you need someone who will actually understand the logic behind it, and also has the experience with the functionality. This is not expertise in the solution, but rather, the management. For example, we need someone who can understand the entire risk management flow in order for them to be able to use the tool efficiently. Because of the vast differences in the domains being used in Archer, each team member is using a section of it. It's not really utilized how I want it, because I'm the leader of the team and I want to use this as the main tool for the entire IT department. However, I don't have the resources who can actually spend that much time to use it. View full review »

The product is flexible and scalable. The processes that are created with the product are going to be used by every manager in this company. That is a total of about forty to sixty people right now. As far as how extensively I will use RSA Archer in development, everything I develop is per request. When somebody requests functionality, I am the one responsible for implementing it. It is not really possible to predict how often or how many requests come in or how complicated they will be. Usually, I am using it at least a few days every month. But I may be asked to implement an application that the other employees may use daily. View full review »
