"Its availability is very good.""This is a complete package with all of the functionality that we need.""The support experience in Latin America is great.""The most valuable parts of this solution are the richness of its features and its easy interface.""What I find the most valuable is the process workflow. It is really good.""We have many use cases for this solution but the feature I have found most valuable is the IT Portfolio Management module.""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.""Every module sets up the same information in a unique repository."

"It would be nice to have a Spanish user interface available to us.""It can be more user-friendly.""The price could be more competitive.""The solution could benefit from improvements to its interface. More specifically, when compared to other tools, the process modeling features lack symbols or object types that are used to represent the information or data within the process."

More iGrafx Cons →

"MEGA HOPEX's problem is that it is expensive, but it's a fantastic tool.""Better documentation and training would be helpful.""This product is expensive and would be improved by lowering its price.""Lacking more out of the box integrations.""The solution is quite expensive.""We have a very close relationship with MEGA representatives in Mexico, and we ask them why they don't offer impact analysis. For example, we have a server in the center and provide the client a view of what's in the peripheral area, like one cluster, application, process area, and services. We want to offer our clients that level of visibility with HOPEX.""The initial setup can be quite complex at first.""It would be great if this solution could integrate with other tools such as ITSM (ServiceNow) or CMDB."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "The licensing part is one of the problems. Its licensing depends on the number of users, so it sometimes gets expensive."
  • "Our license is a subscription-based model that is per user. The solution is not expensive, I believe a subscription-based model is $10 per user."

    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."
