Sparx Systems Enterprise Architect Review

Provides us with good integration between different notations

What is our primary use case?

We use this solution for our enterprise architecture and all forms of data modeling using UML.

Within our company, there are roughly 25 employees using this solution. 

We use this solution a lot. In fact, we plan on using it to cover all of our enterprise architecture-related tasks.

What is most valuable?

This solution provides us with good integration between different notations. It also features good reporting facilities coupled with a concrete database.

What needs improvement?

This solution is quite complex to use. It would be nice if the learning curve wasn't so steep. 

I can't think of any additional features that I would like to see in the next release. There are already plenty; if there were any more, it would only become harder to use. 

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using Sparx Systems Enterprise Architect for the past 10 years. 

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

This solution is quite stable. 

How are customer service and technical support?

I haven't had to contact technical support. 

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup isn't easy, but it's not hard either — it's in between. 

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

I think our license costs roughly $1,000 a year, but I could be wrong. 

What other advice do I have?

I would recommend this solution to others. Just make sure to hire an expert to get you started. 

Overall, on a scale from one to ten, I would give this solution a rating of eight. 

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?
