It is a useful tool for modeling and testing automated processes.
The installation was very easy.
They have a lot of features and the most up-to-date technology integration, which I haven't seen in other products.
It provides flexibility with the code. You can change the code as you want. Basically, you can change SQL based on what's best for your project.
I would say it works really well for forecasting remaining effort, especially in terms of forecasting the dollar amounts. We've gotten pretty good at adjusting rates because we have a lot of contract workers.
SAP PowerDesigner is fairly stable.
The initial setup was very easy.
Evolve is like a tank. You can do whatever you want with the solution, but you need to customize it. I think that it's not very aligned with the framework for enterprise architecture. MEGA is focused on these enterprise architectures, but it's only for that. With Evolve, you can do everything you want with professional services.
Among the valuable features is the ability to document standards. For example, we have mandatory operating standards that need to be followed by every application and every architecture. We use things like table charts and pie charts for documenting the costs incurred across the systems. All of these are good features.
HOPEX has a panel that offers various views. I think that is very good. MEGA has an app for integrating with a lot of apps. We help our clients integrate HOPEX with a different product like Apple Gateway, for example. I've been with the company for 15 years, and we connect with everything. Our clientele includes almost all of the banks in Mexico.
Among the most valuable features are the easy-to-use interface and the ability to get quick results... Many tools that I have seen are great for technical people and for giving technical and business information as well, but they're not as friendly and easy as LeanIX... It works well for both technical and business users. It provides a good combination, enabling you to quickly put valuable information in for both technical and non-technical people and derive results.

Hi, How does enterprise architecture add value to businesses? Do you have some examples to support this?
I have been doing some research on new free/low-cost EA Modelling Tooling. Examples would include Axellience, Value Blue, Archi etc. Has anyone had any experience or views on these newer/simpler/lower-cost cloud-based tools? What has your experience been?
