How has it helped my organization?
Using Sparx Enterprise Architect allowed my customer to detail and make the company's IT strategy visible and accessible to all. The system provided clear roadmaps for IT development and helped to keep up-to-date documentation of systems and processes.
What is most valuable?
I like to use this system, it is a handy tool for visual modeling that provides opportunities for analysis, design, and support of models using ArchiMate, UML.
The system provides powerful tools for obtaining reports and documentation.
There is a good community of users of this system, providing the opportunity to learn and share knowledge.
What needs improvement?
I would like the system to more "intellectually" build a scheme, place icons, and connect lines on the schemes.
For how long have I used the solution?
One to three years.
What do I think about the stability of the solution?
No issues with stability.
What do I think about the scalability of the solution?
No issues with scalability.
How is customer service and technical support?
Which solutions did we use previously?
ARIS Business Architect, ARIS Business Designer.
Sparx EA is better suited for small and medium-sized companies, cheaper and easier in terms of training. It is better suited to modeling on ArchiMate 3.0 notation.
How was the initial setup?
What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?
Pricing and licensing are suitable even for small companies.
What other advice do I have?
