"From a total cost of ownership perspective, running this on the cloud is more efficient than having someone in the company take care of the infrastructure."

More ARIS Cloud Pros →

"Every module sets up the same information in a unique repository.""The most valuable parts of this solution are the richness of its features and its easy interface.""The most valuable feature of MEGA HOPEX is the publication method for static websites. You can generate the whole database into a static website. Additionally, in the new tabular entry, you don't have to put objects or links, you can go and fill a tab and the MEGA HOPEX will generate an object for you in a simple way.""HOPEX has a panel that offers various views. I think that is very good. MEGA has an app for integrating with a lot of apps. We help our clients integrate HOPEX with a different product like Apple Gateway, for example. I've been with the company for 15 years, and we connect with everything. Our clientele includes almost all of the banks in Mexico.""We have many use cases for this solution but the feature I have found most valuable is the IT Portfolio Management module.""It is very interactive.""This is a complete package with all of the functionality that we need.""Its availability is very good."

"ARIS' flexibility and power add a certain complexity. And if ARIS could be more streamlined, I think customers would have a better handle on what to do with it in the end. So if you're not a tech geek, you might struggle to understand what you should do with it as a customer because it's that powerful."

More ARIS Cloud Cons →

"MEGA HOPEX's initial setup could be easier. The newer version is better but they still need to improve the process. The deployment took approximately four to eight hours.""The initial setup is a little complex.""This product is expensive and would be improved by lowering its price.""MEGA HOPEX's problem is that it is expensive, but it's a fantastic tool.""The initial setup can be quite complex at first.""The solution is quite expensive.""It would be great if this solution could integrate with other tools such as ITSM (ServiceNow) or CMDB.""Lacking more out of the box integrations."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "The licensing model of ARIS Cloud is leaner and more beneficial to the customer. The new license model is great. With the on-premise, you needed to subscribe to many more types of licenses. Now there are licensed bundles available on the cloud."
  • More ARIS Cloud Pricing and Cost Advice →

  • "The price of the MEGA HOPEX license could improve, it is expensive. The license key for business process analysis and IT architecture is approximately €10,000. This price is fixed, it's not a subscription or cloud-based version. It is a one-time price."

    Reviews from Real Users

    Below are some reviews and helpful feedback written by PeerSpot users currently using the MEGA HOPEX solution.

    PeerSpot user Kayode A., Enterprise Architecture Consultant at ZealHosts Consulting, says, “What I find the most valuable is the process workflow. It is really good. The fact that you can decompose is also valuable, as is the file D structure. Also, the fact that you can have your own logical repository structure and you can drag and drop is very valuable. This is largely because of its intuitiveness. Once you understand the logic behind the tool, MEGA HOPEX is quite intuitive. I also like the ability to create custom reports. I like the fact that you can share repository content via web to other end users who are not architects.”

    A Software Architect at a transportation company mentions, “The main feature that we like the most is the ability to have a unique repository where all the architects can interact and play together with the shapes of different architecture solutions. They have a unified repository where users can share the developments they're working on. Its availability is very good.” 

    An IT Consulting Manager at a tech services company comments, "We have many use cases for this solution but the feature I have found most valuable is the IT Portfolio Management module."
