The Forrester Wave™: EA Management Suites, Q2 2013
The 10 Providers That Matter Most And How They Stack Up
April 2, 2013
Why Read This Report
There is a plethora of vendors in the enterprise architecture management suite (EAMS) market that, like many EA practices themselves, excel at only a portion of a comprehensive EA practice. It is not uncommon for Forrester clients to conduct research on EAMS products, and find that they cannot discern how they are different or able to meet the objectives of their practice. In Forrester's 69-criteria evaluation of EAMS vendors, we identified the 10 most significant software providers based on breadth of EA coverage and ability to fulfill four common EA objectives — alfabet, Avolution, BOC Group, Casewise, EAS, IBM, Mega International, OpenText, Software AG, and Troux Technologies — and researched, analyzed, and scored them. Use this research and the use-case scenarios included to guide your selection of the right partner.
