I believe it is very useful while displaying relationships.
When developing a specific artifact, the tool may require the development of other artifacts. The tool doesn't support a fit for purpose development.
The ability to develop enterprise architecture artifacts.
Many of our government agency reports aren't provided through the tool.
Assist in defining the number and type of licenses my organization actually needed.
I would identify the user community before deciding on an enterprise tool.

The ability to develop EA artifacts.
The inability to tell a story to senior executives who have limited knowledge on understanding EA artifacts.
More up to date and user-friendly tutorial.
Request use case prior to purchase.

Investigate products that were less built upon DODAF and more aligned with Cloud/Modern EA/TOGAF/FEA. Other tools seem better fit to modern architecture and technology.

Tool is flexible. other tools have a great story for a methodology but needed a product that started slim and simple and could go in aby direction with major investment.
Consider clearly what are the objectives; project portfolio management, strategic planning, application portfolio management, solution architecture etc. and the impact of tackling all of these at the same time.
Flexibility and focus on a tooling pallette rather than method.
Features are nearly there but arent 100%
Finish good ideas proerly to the end.
Realized that the major investment is not in the tool but the thinking model and the people.
I'm hard on the tool and its out of the box features but its extensibility makes up for it.
IBM didnt know what EA is and what it needs. hoping unicom have more commitment
