Sparx Systems Enterprise Architect Review

Support for UML diagrams is good.

Valuable Features:

  • Support for UML diagrams – use cases and behavioral model
  • Logical models
  • Excellent documentation templates, like what you see is what you get

Improvements to My Organization:

Team collaboration. It’s like the Microsoft TFS equivalent for architecture.

Room for Improvement:

It has everything spanning from project management to reverse engineering code to test cycle management, and I believe you can link them all together. Its side effect is the complexity of getting it all together in this one tool. 

I would probably separate the testing, PM and code reverse engineering features as an add-on feature rather as part of one tool.

Deployment Issues:

There have been no issues with the deployment.

Stability Issues:

We have had no issues with the stability.

Scalability Issues:

We have had no issues scaling it for our needs.

Other Advice:

I really don’t have a basis for comparison with any other product like I-Server or Abacus Evolution. For what Sparx EA can offer, it’s the best tool that we had.
