ABACUS is #1 in new Enterprise Architecture tool review
May 02, 2013
AVOLUTION, developer and supplier of software solutions for enterprise modelling and metrics-based analysis, today announced that its flagship EA tool, ABACUS®, received the highest score of 11 Enterprise Architecture Management (EAM) tools reviewed by independent business and IT consulting firm, SYRACOM AG.
Wiesbaden-based SYRACOM conducted the review between January and March 2013 and assessed tools on a wide range of criteria, including: data-interchange capabilities; configurability; methodologies employed; use-ability; and performance. ABACUS was awarded the highest available marks in 16 of the 18 categories.
Intended for enterprises introducing EAM as well as those that are already engaged in EA activities, SYRACOM’s survey aims to provide a knowledge foundation useful to organisations during the tool evaluation phase.
Avolution founder and principal, Dr Tim O’Neill, commented, “ABACUS has a great track record in coming out top in EA tool product comparisons and yet again an independent firm has found ABACUS to be the number 1 tool on the market. This result helps to validate the directions and efforts of the whole team at avolution, of which I am very proud. It’s also refreshing for the results of such a survey to be made openly available and without charge, and SYRACOM should be commended for this.”
SYRACOM’s Enterprise Architecture Tool Survey 2013 can be downloaded from the Avolution website (http://www.avolutionsoftware.com/resources/resource-center) or from SYRACOM AG (http://www.syracom.de/).
Avolution provides the ABACUS® solution which is unique to the enterprise modelling space in that it can create multiple solution alternatives (architectures) and then run various simulations (Discrete Event, Monte Carlo etc) against each alternative for metrics such as Performance, Cost and Availability. Being built on a completely agile, open and flexible XML-based hierarchical repository, ABACUS offers support for more frameworks than any other tool on the market, and users can create their own bespoke or hybrid repository meta-model through simple right-clicks and drag-and-drops in a matter of minutes.
