Sparx Systems Enterprise Architect Review

Product is very visual, but not intuitive

Valuable Features

  • Use cases
  • Requirements
  • Test cases
  • UML diagrams as sequence, class and others

Improvements to My Organization

Was able to create full specifications (BRD, FRD, Tech design documents), utilizing SPARX application.

Room for Improvement

Product is very visual, but not intuitive.

Use of Solution

1.5 years.

Deployment Issues

We didn't deploy, as we didn't have connection to database environment for security reasons.

Stability Issues

No issues encountered.

Scalability Issues

No issues encountered.

Customer Service and Technical Support

Customer Service:

10 out of 10. Emails were answered and phone calls as well.

Technical Support:

Didn't use much, only twice and it was very good.

Previous Solutions

I used Visio. No comparison, SPARX much better.

Initial Setup

Easy, because it was local. Network setup more difficult and costly.

Implementation Team

In house. Vendor not needed, which simplified our life.

Pricing, Setup Cost and Licensing

Prices are very affordable.

Other Solutions Considered

Rational Doors from IBM. Their product much more expensive and less agile.

Other Advice

It takes time to learn diagram language, if you're not used to it. After a couple of weeks it becomes second nature.
