Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"We have many use cases for this solution but the feature I have found most valuable is the IT Portfolio Management module.""Every module sets up the same information in a unique repository.""What I find the most valuable is the process workflow. It is really good.""The support experience in Latin America is great.""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.""This is a complete package with all of the functionality that we need.""The most valuable parts of this solution are the richness of its features and its easy interface.""Its availability is very good."

"The most valuable features are process mapping and identifying responsibilities.""I like the way you can hypertext across tabs so you can actually create an interactive that you can export as a website. You can also extend it to a monitoring tool if you really wanted to.""It's my understanding that the initial setup is straightforward.""The initial setup is pretty easy.""Installing Visio is straightforward.""Visio is stable.""I like all the features. I go online, and everything pops there. It is in the cloud, and everything is there. Even if there is a crash, everything is still there. I don't lose anything. That's what is the most valuable and likable. It is really a professional solution for designing. The designs look really nice in the PDF.""Visio makes it easier than with other tools to do such tasks as changing things or coming up with one's own visual style for presentation purposes."

Cons
"MEGA HOPEX's problem is that it is expensive, but it's a fantastic tool.""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.""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.""The initial setup can be quite complex at first.""This product is expensive and would be improved by lowering its price.""Better documentation and training would be helpful."

More MEGA HOPEX Cons →

"Microsoft should include Visio as part of their Office 365 offering.""The solution's flexibility can be perceived as both a strength and a weakness.""There are too many features.""It is not flexible in terms of functions and modeling deliverables. When you speak of processes, the program has to describe the activities and the deliverables. You have to tell your robots how to deal with and input something, and you should have something more flexible from this point of view.""Portability from Visio to PowerPoint and vice versa could be simplified.""It's not the easiest software to use. It's not user-friendly out-of-the-box.""The user interface could be simplified and easier to use.""The big downside to Visio is that it's very difficult to push the design through to Power Automate, to become a workflow that you can use."

    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."
