Sydney, New South Wales, Australia, 2009/03/31 - Avolution, provider of the market leading Abacus® solution for the metrics-based analysis of architectures, today announced that it has been included in the list of "Cool Vendors" in the Cool Vendors in Enterprise Architecture report by Gartner.
"We believe Gartner’s selection of Avolution further validates our position as the market leader for metrics-based analysis of architectures," said Dr Tim O'Neill, co-founder of Avolution. "Built upon a completely flexible meta-model, with the ability to build any number of solution alternatives (architectures) in minutes from standard MS Excel and MS Visio data, Abacus immediately provides analysis of metrics such as the availability of critical business processes and portfolio total cost of ownership. And with advanced visualisation techniques such as 3D, timelines, capability spaces and trade-off diagrams, these metrics can finally be used to plan an optimal path for investment, with predictive and quantitative certainty."

About Gartner's Cool Vendors Selection Process
Gartner's listing does not constitute an exhaustive list of vendors in any given technology area, but rather is designed to highlight interesting, new and innovative vendors, products and services. Gartner disclaims all warranties, expressed or implied, with respect to this research, including any warranties of merchantability or fitness of a particular purpose.
Gartner defines a cool vendor as a company that offers technologies or solutions that are: Innovative, enable users to do things they couldn't do before; Impactful, have, or will have, business impact (not just technology for the sake of technology); Intriguing, have caught Gartner's interest or curiosity in approximately the past six months.
Avolution (avolution.eu) provides the Abacus® solution which is unique to the enterprise modelling space in that in minutes 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, Alignment, Cost and Availability. In so doing it can recommend the optimal path for investment, with predictive and quantitative certainty.
• Build any number of solution alternatives and views in minutes, all according to a completely flexible meta-model, importing from MS Visio, MS Excel and many other formats.
• Analyse your architecture(s) for metrics such as; Total Cost of Ownership (TCO), Alignment, 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, capability spaces and trade-off diagrams.
