"It has good end-to-end metamodel interrelationships.""It is useful for creating build-outs and architecture views and for publishing reports and stuff like that for different programs."

More UNICOM System Architect Pros →

Cons
"The solution needs to better integrate with other products, like Microsoft.""The reverse engineering of the database is already there, but in the next release I would like to see some pilot supplied with the solution in order to address any database."

More IBM Rational System Architect Cons →

"They need to add reports that show the enterprise architecture perspectives, and the dashboards should be comfortable for the senior enterprise architects so that they can view the complete landscape.""I don't use the tool or know a lot. It is going to have some shortcomings. When it comes down to publishing, we just found out this week that they actually have a publisher add-on. So, what we were trying to publish was not giving a detailed report about the architecture, views, etc. I just wish they had sent these to UNICOM and contacted them about add-on features for the publishing part of the tool."
