    Product(s): Agile Enterprise Architecture

    Solid platform for EA and APM were based on an agile approach.

    Overall Comment

    The product continues to evolve and improve from a base where it was sufficient to cover our needs. Corso has been very helpful in coaching, advising and addressing issues be they technical issues or just user inexperience. It is strong in APM, weaker in its reporting capability, evolving well in its modeling capability. The use of Archimate as the core meta model fits well with our needs and experience. Enhancements are well communicated especially the recent UI upgrade. Very helpful and skilled group of people to interact with.

    What one piece of advice would you give other prospective customers?

    Think through the basic information you have on your application portfolio and try to match that to the meta model. Also, you will achieve more if you have a solid Archimate Knowledge.

    What do you like most about the product or service?

    SaaS platform at a competitive price.

    What do you dislike most about the product?

    Reporting capability.

    What one thing do you wish the vendor did differently?

    Nothing.

    If you could start over, what would your organization do differently?

    Product(s): Agile Enterprise Architecture

    Corso is the tool we've selected to document our enterprise using the ArchiMate language.

    Overall Comment

    I'm excited that we've found a place to document out enterprise using the ArchiMate language. At times the usability is not what I'd expect, but their response to suggestions always has a quick turnaround.

    What do you like most about the product or service?

    Quick responses from the support staff, even executives at times.

    What do you dislike most about the product?

    Usability.

    What one thing do you wish the vendor did differently?

    Navigating the tool can be a bit difficult. Overall usability could be improved.

    Product(s): Agile Enterprise Architecture

    Easy implementation, agile approach to feature enhancement and simple customisations.

    Overall Comment

    The support provided by Corso both pre and post sale have been second to none. They are always eager to understand my requirements as a customer and work hard to meet them.

    What one piece of advice would you give other prospective customers?

    Try the software first, make sure it works for you, it's highly customisable so don't be afraid to ask the questions which are important to you.

    What do you like most about the product or service?

    I really like the ability to customise the tool to the way I and my wider organisation works, it makes it meaningful and valuable to us. It's intuitive to use and being provided as SaaS to a browser enables true cross platform collaboration which is essential.

    What do you dislike most about the product?

    The agile approach to development can on occassion mean bugs are present in the system. However, the company works hard to minimise these and fix anything that slips through the net.

    What one thing do you wish the vendor did differently?

    I wish it were easier to publish models and other information to the wider world from within the platform.

    If you could start over, what would your organization do differently?

    I wouldn't change the product selection, just buy more licenses up front.

    Product capabilities - overall comment

    The baseline capabilities are excellent. The product is being continuously developed based upon customer feedback, each new update adds really useful features.

    Service & support - overall comment

    Timely, efficient, professional and friendly support teams are knowledgable about their product and happy to help with any query.

    Integration & Deployment - Overall comment

    This is Software as a Service. It just works.
