Over at All CAD Access Ralph Grabowski notes this list from Evan Yares defining high end CAD.

Among the qualities from the list that perhaps translate over to high end GIS are:

No-holds-barred functionality.
Breadth and depth of applications.
Integration with enterprise applications.
Specialty design tools.
Large/complex-project management tools.
Continuous innovation.

CAD integration
Modelling tools
Advanced statistics

What else would you add?
