It is too buried.  I need something from the main page that will get me 
directly where I need to go.  How you get to this spot requires you to
through the "Merlin" product and click "Systems".  This is not intuitive 
if I know there is something called Avalon Framework.

I think Systems needs to be on the main page--or at the very least 
Avalon Framework.

Which is fine.

It's a step in the right direction, but it too associated with Merlin to 
be really useful.  At this point I am supporting software that uses 
Fortress and ECM, so I would rule out the Merlin link from the 
outset--which also means I would never find the Systems link.
