Sparx Systems Enterprise Architect Review

It's like a repository. So far, we use it only for Information Modelling.


What is most valuable?

It's like a repository. So far, we use it only for Information Modelling.

How has it helped my organization?

• Repository.
• Reuse of objects
• Making fewer mistakes in models (i.e., naming objects, attributes, etc.).

What needs improvement?

It would be great if we could decrease the use of different parts of the Toolbox. By doing so, forcing temporary consultants to use our Profile and no other items from other toolboxes.

For how long have I used the solution?

Personally: Three years. The organization: about seven years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

No.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

So far, no. We use the local database. In the future, we have to start using a central Database (Cloud?).

How are customer service and technical support?

From 1–10: Nine (fast response).

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

Word (Microsoft Office), Visio.

How was the initial setup?

Complex, because we used a profile.

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

No clue…Licenses are pretty low cost compared to, for example, ARIS.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

My colleague did this before I started using EA. Dunno exactly, but I thought about Bizzdesign, ARIS, and one or two other products.

What other advice do I have?

For the initial setup, get people with good knowledge from Sparx EA .
