AVOLUTION, developer and supplier of software solutions for enterprise modelling and metrics-based analysis, today announced that its flagship Enterprise Architecture tool, ABACUS®, has been positioned by industry analyst Gartner Inc. in the Leaders quadrant of its Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Architecture Tools*.
The Gartner Magic Quadrant provides a graphical, competitive positioning of technology providers in areas of high market growth. Vendors positioned in the Leaders quadrant provide mature offerings that meet market demand, and demonstrate the vision necessary to sustain their market position as requirements evolve. Leaders must also have high visibility within the market and possess a large, satisfied customer base.
Gartner’s report also highlighted that the widening adoption of Enterprise Architecture tools amongst leading organisations reflects the value that EA demonstrably brings, by capturing, integrating, analysing and communicating information to guide business decisions.
Dr Tim O’Neill, principal and co-founder of Avolution commented,"We are very proud of our position in the Leaders Quadrant of Gartner’s Enterprise Architecture Magic Quadrant. We believe it validates our product development strategy of optimal repository flexibility, strong analytics techniques, and support for closely related activities such as Enterprise Portfolio Management, Business Process Management and GRC.” O’Neill continued,“In particular, we think this endorses the significant investment we’ve made recently extending the communication options for our customers, through which ABACUS enables a more collaborative engagement with stakeholders.”

Avolution (avolution.eu) provides the ABACUS® solution which is unique to the enterprise modelling space in that it can create multiple solution alternatives (architectures) and then run various simulations (Discrete Event, Monte Carlo etc) against each alternative for metrics such as Performance, Cost and Availability. In so doing it can recommend the optimal path for investment, with predictive and quantitative certainty. More information is available at the Avolution website.

• Analyse your architecture(s) for metrics such as; Total Cost of Ownership (TCO), Performance, Availability, Agility and many more.
• View the architecture(s) and the results of any evaluation using advanced techniques such as; 3D, heat maps, timelines, lifecycles, capability spaces and trade-off diagrams.
