Sparx Systems Enterprise Architect Review

Very stable although it lacks the ability to lock specific objects to specific users.


What is most valuable?

The UML modeling, Use Case Modeling, ability to import custom graphics and map to UML objects, document templates and generation. I would rate the solution as 9/10 as a "project team UML documentation" platform.

5/10 as an "Enterprise Architecture" requirements platform. Mainly as it lacks the ability (or I lack knowing how to) lock specific objects to specific uses.

How has it helped my organization?

UML Use Case modeling with complete requirement statement generation.

What needs improvement?

I would rate EA as a 5/10 as an "Enterprise Architecture" requirements platform. Mainly as it lacks the ability to lock specific objects, object types to specific users or user groups.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have used it for over eight years.

What was my experience with deployment of the solution?

No. Have deployed in both standalone and team/shared repository environments.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

No, the product is very stable.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

No. We scaled to a team of about 8 people with no issues using SQL Server as the repository.

How are customer service and technical support?

Customer Service:

I never interacted with Customer Service.. So that speaks to stability and usability.

Technical Support:

I never interacted with Technical Support. So that speaks to stability and usability.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

Yes, we used Rational Rose and we switched because of cost of prior solution.

How was the initial setup?

Very straight forward.

What about the implementation team?

In house - we have deployed this platform for numerous IT and Business Process teams.

What other advice do I have?

Ensure you have fully reviewed your documentation patterns with the entire team.
