AWS CloudFormation

We create the resource stack with AWS CloudFormation. We can manage all the resources as a bundle. We can update the entire stack by updating the AWS CloudFormation template. It is very easy to delete the entire resource with AWS CloudFormation. If we do those resource creations and manage them manually, then we need to do lots of manual involvements. When we use AWS CloudFormation, we can reduce time to create and manage resources.

I would not recommend using BizzDesign. For Enterprise Architecture, like business strategy, business process modelling, IT architectures there are better and in most cases less expensive tools.

Cons

AWS CloudFormation

  • Better examples
  • There are oddities with the yaml aspects of it, that make it a bit cumbersome
  • A template for use cases that are easily fillable - or just some place to start.

  • Usability of the tool is quite bad.
  • It is tedious to even create simple reports. Created reports are published as image, so basically not usable for end users.
  • Support of other model languages than Archimate is less supported. In ERD you do not even have a layout functionality.
  • Any state of the art integrations like cloud stencils are missing.
  • Import/export with Excel is tedious and SQL import not fully implemented.

Support for simple questions is okay. For some more elaborate things, also tool errors, you may not get even an answer for months/more than a year.

Alternatives Considered

AWS CloudFormation

AWS CloudFormation has more features and robustness. It is suited for professional projects since it provides stability and a wide variety of options for configurations. These include not only dividing stacks by specific code changes, but also in regions. This allows more granularity and control over all stacks. If you want to delete them all just by a region, you can do it.

  • We were not able to get much benefit from the tool. Some users and partner teams meanwhile moved on to other software.

Additional Pricing Details
There is no additional charge for using AWS CloudFormation with resource providers in the following namespaces: AWS::*, Alexa::*, and Custom::*. In this case you pay for AWS resources (such as Amazon EC2 instances, Elastic Load Balancing load balancers, etc.) created using AWS CloudFormation as if you created them manually. You only pay for what you use, as you use it; there are no minimum fees and no required upfront commitments. When you use resource providers with AWS CloudFormation outside the namespaces mentioned above, you incur charges per handler operation. Handler operations are create, update, delete, read, or list actions on a resource.
