BOSTON, November 9, 2015 – Gartner, Inc. named MEGA International a leader in its Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Architecture Tools report, published November 4, 2015. This is the seventh year in a row that MEGA has been cited as a leader in enterprise architecture (EA) tools by Gartner.
Gartner evaluated nine companies in this report and placed them in four quadrants: leaders, visionaries, challengers and niche players. The report named only two companies as leaders.
“This year, we clarified our assessment of this market based on: (1) the vendor's ability to support business-outcome-driven EA, (2) the vendor's ability to provide solutions to disruptions caused by the emergence of digital business and (3) a higher requirement for overall corporate revenue. As a result, there are significant year-over-year changes to the spread of vendor dots,” explained the report.
“We believe that our strong product offering and investment in EA tools have contributed to Gartner’s continued citation of MEGA as a leader in EA. MEGA has played a major role in making EA a valuable strategic planning asset that is helping more companies succeed in digital transformation,” noted Lucio de Risi, CEO, MEGA.
“Very few vendors can offer EA expertise and product capabilities that help enterprises create a competitive edge and meet today’s complex challenges. Our solutions are very different from other EA tools; we build innovative software that helps organizations solve strategic business and IT transformation challenges,” continued de Risi.
“Much of our success is due to our HOPEX platform that integrates all of our products, because a high level of solution integration is essential to companies that must succeed in business transformation,” he explained.
The Gartner report also said, “Information from EA tools must be presented to a variety of stakeholders for decision-making purposes. This enables business change that supports the direction and strategy of the organization while confronting many types of business and technology disruptions. EA tools must integrate with project and portfolio management (PPM), application portfolio management (APM), governance, risk and compliance (GRC) and IT financial management solutions to ensure the best investment mix of projects to execute on business vision and strategy. EA teams are often interested in other complementary tools – such as PPM, APM, GRC and IT financial management tools – and occasionally use them.”
Enterprises have been using MEGA’s EA solutions for more than 20 years to create a ‘single source of truth’. This united, interactive view of the business, its assets, processes and risks can be shared by employees, work groups and managers across division lines or geographies to increase collaboration and help executives initiate successful digital transformation programs.
