Gartner Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Architecture Tools 2022

We are delighted to announce that for the third consecutive year we are listed as a Visionary in the Gartner MQ for EA Tools, and once again we are the only tool in the Visionary quadrant. We are really proud that Essential is again recognised as an outstanding, feature rich tool, offered at a price that is affordable to organisations of all shapes and sizes.

Why is Essential different?

  • Our price point is key. Essential offers comparable functionality at a fraction of the price of our main competitors – just $17,700 per annum for unlimited users and EA data
  • Our EA knowledge and experience. EAS started life as an EA Consultancy and so a majority of our team are, or have been, practising architects.  We understand what an EA Tool should do to provide value and how to do that as simply and easily as possible
  • Our self-service approach. A good EA with a good tool should not need an army of consultants to deliver value. Essential provides many quick start options to allow value delivery in weeks
  • Our federated data maintenance tools.  We believe in integrating with other tools wherever possible and then allowing those with the knowledge to maintain their data through easy business friendly editors that anyone can use
  • Essential fully supports all EA functions from Strategy Management to APM, Technology Risk and more with Views and dashboards focused at different stakeholders, from technical teams to CxOs and business users, allowing enterprise-wide collaboration
  • Ongoing customer driven development. Our most recent release included updated views and dashboards, a query tool, the ability to create your own custom editors and a PowerPoint export functionality.
