Abacus Maintains #1 Position in Enterprise Architecture Tool Survey

Avolution, developer and supplier of software solutions for IT strategy, planning and enterprise modelling, today announced that its flagship Enterprise Architecture tool, ABACUSĀ®, has been placed first in the latest survey of Enterprise Architecture (EA) tools conducted by EA specialist, Pragmatic EA.

London, United Kingdom, September 20, 2013 --(PR.com)-- Developer of the Pragmatic Enterprise Architecture Framework (PEAF), Pragmatic EA has undertaken this latest version of its industry survey between June and August 2013, comparing the Enterprise Architecture tools of nearly 30 software vendors. The evaluation criteria was extensive, covering: import / export options; diagram and view options; meta-model configuration; analysis techniques; repository management; and ease of use, as well as the ability of tools to perform these and other functions ‘out-of-the-box’ versus through configuration or customisation. With over 150 features assessed, ABACUS was the only tool fulfilling all of the criteria out-of-the-box, achieving the #1 ranking.

Dr Tim O’Neill, founder and principal of Avolution, said: “We are extremely pleased with the result of this latest update to Pragmatic EA's tool survey. This independent study is very well regarded throughout our industry, and provides an extremely insightful resource for any EA professional reviewing the EA tool market”. O’Neill continued, “For the third time in a row, this survey has confirmed that in a feature-based tool assessment, ABACUS comes out on top!”

The full report can be downloaded from the Pragmatic EA website and Pragmatic EA members can freely download and tailor the scoring criteria.
