Visual Paradigm Review

Easy images from diagrams for reports and docs are valuable features, but I'd like to see sharing come built-in.


What is most valuable?

Easy images from current diagrams for use in reports and architecture documents.

How has it helped my organization?

Like any reasonable Architecture Tool, it produces standard views and allows passing a file with work in it to others.

What needs improvement?

Many missing diagram formats, incomplete support for DoDAF, ToGAF and similar, sharing should come built in to the product and not be like so many other architecture tools where any time you need some it is at additional cost.

For how long have I used the solution?

2 years.

What was my experience with deployment of the solution?

No issues with deployment.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

Not significant with current versions.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

No built in teamwork.

How are customer service and technical support?

Online support is very lacking and appears to be an entre' for paid support.

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

Used Rational Rose and Systems Architect in the past. Moved to a new company where this was the standard.

What was our ROI?

Reduces time and provides better products than PowerPoint engineering.

What other advice do I have?

Get a bundle deal from the vendor with teamwork built in.
