Full function product supporting DoDAF v2.0 and relatively easy learning curve to use compared to similar types of complex architecture solutions.
Perform a trade study and leverage firms like Gartner for industry research.

What stood out was the breadth of the capability and flexibility of the Casewise Modeler combined with the strong technical and business implementation vision complimented with delivery skills of the Casewise team.
POC your architecture meta-model plus the implementation process, then test against your goals, and iterate, before you roll out to a larger scale.
Flexibility & Capability. Strong Services Support.
The recent upgrade in the user experience addressed most my dislikes.
I think I would like to see a little more model versioning support. It is there but a little more cumbersome than I would like.
We would probably automate / enforce more of the content creation.
Casewise is extremely capable and flexible. We are also rolling our Evolve to a wider audience which is making the content available to more end users. Evolve has also allowed use to share valuable content with less technical users and business users.
Casewise is a tool vendor, but I can not speak highly enough of the technical tool and methodolgy support that they provide. They are responsive, they will come onsight or remote whatever we needed. They were also very keen on enabling our staff so that we could transition to fully support ourselves.
Deployment was easy. We have also done a number of integrations using the various tools in the Casewise suite.

Casewise has always been a valuable partner to implement our solutions.
Do not underestimate the fact that Casewise is a great tool but just a key technology component, most part of the value of your applications will come from your business partners, the governance you put around your projects and the processes you put in place to create and maintain the business content.
The flexibility: how easy it is to create new objects and associations on the fly, this was a key success factor when we designed our SOX Compliance project.
The fact that we cannot use Sharepoint to maintain objects content.
I would have loved to have a Sharepoint interface to maintain Casewise content.
Do not start any initiative if you do not have the right governance and business ownership in place.

The Casewise Evolve product allows us to take the functionality of Casewise Modeler and render it in a very user friendly way to the broader organization.
Take the time to understand the users.
Very easy to use - no training required.
The team is still engaged with us and available for consultation as and when needed.

The Casewise Modeler was easy to implement and covered 100% of business needs for Enterprise Architecture. It has transformed how we collect, organize, and display our internal and customer architectures and created a new revenue source for our organization as EA consultants as well as increased efficiencies in house.
Do not underestimate the applicability of EA across all facets of your organzation or your customer base. We have implmeneted Casewise Modeler in areas we never intended when we started out.
Rapid deployment of architectures to the client.
Heavy IT investment when hosting on site.
Better system architecture documentation and installation guides. It still requires a seasoned systems adminstrator to install, secure, and configure.
Integrated Casewise Modeler into the existing staff instead of having the architects run it as a stand alone IT shop.
Produces architectures in a manner that is flexible, easy to deploy, and very reusable.
Casewise is extremely responsive to requests for quotes, technical issues, and general questions about billing and the application.
Casewise Modeler was able to be hosting using existing technology and was implmented by existing systems admin staff.
