Avolution’s Dr Tim O’Neill said:

“Syracom’s survey is a great validation that enterprise architects who use ABACUS can move very quickly to deliver value, provide advice and guide the business towards its goals.

“Our clients model systems and processes, run analytics and roadmaps for digital transformation. Companies gain insights which boost customer experience, reduce costs, ensure cybersecurity, manage risk, and run systems efficiently.

“A key feature of ABACUS is that we’ve made it very quick and straightforward to get data in and out of the tool: you can round trip with MS Excel, Visio, SharePoint, CMDBs and many other sources.”

The Syracom survey was based on a detailed assessment of enterprise architecture management capability, metamodel features, customization, filter & search, visualization, import/export capabilities, reports, process management, user management and strategy.
