The tool is used for enterprise architecture and IT portfolio planning. It gives a centralized repository function to enable strategic and operational planning across various business processes and IT domains, and across various stakeholder requirements such as C-level, architecture, design and operational teams. It's globally used.
  • Customisable meta-model that allows you to focus on areas of interest, cut out the clutter, and grow organically as requirements arise.
  • Integration to third party products such as SharePoint, and export/import with Excel feature makes getting information in and out really easy.
  • Reporting and analytics, and impact analysis are simple using the built-in features as well as ABACUS intelligence and/or integration to third party analytics tools.
  • More standard connectors for integration with other modeling tools could be beneficial for companies having legacy tools/fragmented toolsets.
  • Better automated diagramming features would be useful.
Well suited scenarios include IT portfolio management, project portfolio management, enterprise architecture planning, modeling of business capabilities, using standard frameworks that ship out of the box such as TOGAF, and integration with SharePoint.

Less appropriate scenarios would be detailed data modeling and using the tool expecting to get model drive code execution.
