“MEGA has been a player in this market and related ones for some time now. MEGA’s deep experience in governance, risk, and compliance (GRC), process, and architecture combines into a tool of great depth and breadth, backed by a skilled set of consultants. Many customer references are using the product to manage enterprise transformation initiatives from the highest levels of architecture on down to the lowest, resulting in a great deal of best practices being captured within the releases of the product. Knowing that such a vast amount of capability is difficult to digest, the company is now packing functionality in more digestible solutions for initiatives such as application portfolio management and business architecture,” said the report.
