I rate MEGA HOPEX seven out of 10. It's too complex for users who lack experience with enterprise architecture. This is a tool for experts with advanced knowledge already. You need to know what you want to do it. It's better to start with another tool.

We’re a customer and end-user. I’d advise if a user is curious about the solution, they should first make sure that it fits their needs. They need to confirm how they will use it. I’d recommend the solution as it is a world-class application. I would rate the solution nine out of ten. It supports real business needs and can be used in various sectors, like retail banking and space data. NASA is using this as per my knowledge, for example. The customized functionalities are all there. You only insert your data according to your requirements and it'll get through the standards and it'll produce the documents and the websites needed to publish to the customers.

My advice is that if you have the budget for it, MEGA HOPEX is a fantastic tool. It will especially help you if you are heavily focused on process architecture. MEGA HOPEX maps your org structure and you can use that to build in your processes and then just directly house your processes into the org structure. This is just a fantastic workflow in terms of the engineering and the thinking behind its structure. The pricing is an issue, however. MEGA HOPEX could be more affordable. They could also create some form of community-based addition to allow a wider audience access and play around with the tool. I think this would be a welcome development.

We are customers and end-users. We don't have a business relationship with the company. I'd rate the solution at a seven out of ten. If the architecture was a bit better, I might rate it higher.

My advice to anybody who is considering MEGA HOPEX is that it's a complete solution. All of the functionality is implemented. However, it is a complex product. Somebody who wants to use it should understand all of the functionality, but select only 20% of the concepts and use them very well. It's not necessary to use the full functionality and we spent too much time on the gain we received. I would rate this solution a seven out of ten.

I would recommend contacting MEGA, asking questions and analyzing your requirements against the solution. MEGA has multiple language support and not only for technical support. The tool is also available in different languages. If your company needs enterprise architecture then you won't have any difficulty with MEGA. I would rate this solution a nine out of 10.

My advice to anybody who is implementing this solution is to consider using VMware because it has been helpful for us. I would also suggest getting help with the implementation. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.

We're only customers. We aren't partners or resellers of the solution. I'm not sure which version of the solution we're currently using. I'd rate the solution seven out of ten. The solution is one of the best. We've been very happy with it.

I think that MEGA HOPEX is a comprehensive EA solution, but the challenge is how to use it properly so that it works for your organization. On a scale from one to 10, I rate it an eight.

We don't use the solution on a large scale. We mainly just use it in the IT department. We're using the on-premises deployment solution. Originally, about two years ago, we set up the solution, then we froze work on it. Recently we started it up again, but it needed to re-configure the solution because our business requirements had changed. MEGA typically exceeds most of the needs of a client in terms of what they offer. As for advice to others considering using this solution, I'd say this: you need to study the modules and to match them to your business requirements before you begin so you don't buy something you don't need or won't use. Make sure you know what you need before entering into an agreement. I would rate the solution at eight out of ten but they need to enhance their way of filling the modules because as of right now, it's not ideal for the customer.

This solution can be used for modeling, and the publication for employees to consult on the process and design. It can not be used to automate processes or create an application. Therefore, if you want it for enterprise architecture and modeling then it is a very good solution. On the other hand, if you want it for process automation then it is not. When we migrated to this solution it was difficult. I don't think that we had enough documentation. We felt it was important to switch to the new version because the older one is no longer supported. The impression we have is that when you want to do something like a migration, they want you to pay extra consulting fees. For mid-sized companies, this is sometimes not in the budget. It is a little bit frustrating that we do not have process automation. Without this, we cannot scale this solution to the new services of our company. I would rate this solution a six out of ten.

If you want to use additional features, such as the Risk Management capability, then it is a little too expensive.

The solution is very expensive, and the company constantly directs users to their professional services, which also costs money.
