Avolution Recognized in Gartner report for its Enterprise Architecture Tools capabilities

Updated on

Avolution’s ABACUS toolset has received the highest product score for the Speeding Time to Value Use Case, and the second highest score in the Creating Signature-Ready Actionable Deliverables Use Case, two of three Use Cases in the January 2017 Gartner report “Critical Capabilities for Enterprise Architecture Tools”*.

Avolution’s Dr Tim O’Neill said: “We work hard to provide a tool which supports architects with a very broad range of styles and approaches to get started quickly and to achieve their business and technical goals. ABACUS is also available for either cloud-based or on-premise enterprise architecture, modeling, roadmapping and analytics.”

Independent analyst surveys show that over 69 per cent of clients have succesfully completed ABACUS deployment in under 3 months, and over 92 per cent in less than 6 months.

“The ability of ABACUS to leverage and adapt to existing data is key to quick time-to-value,” said O’Neill. “Importing data from SharePoint, Excel, Visio, Google Sheets and a range of other sources is straightforward, and we have adaptors available out-of-the-box to do this. Architects interested in swift and comprehensive data audit or upload are welcome to contact us to discuss how we can help to achieve this goal.

“We also have experience with wholesale migration of diagrams and repositories from other toolsets, and can provide advice on how this can be managed efficiently.”
