Sparx offers good flexibility.It has led some teams to do better code reviews - to be less focussed on coding conventions (syntax) and more focussed on the semantics because of the abstraction level clear design affords.Scalability is not a problem. You can always increase the footprint of what the thing can do because it's so powerful.The initial setup is easy.Ability to keep inventory of reusable blocks, and use in different diagrams with views of various templates.The most valuable feature is the integrated data model, so if I change the name of an item, all models using that object are automatically updated.The most valuable features are the flexibility and adaptability of Sparx Enterprise Architect.Some of the business processes are very easy to compare when you have the diagrams.

Cons

The documentation could be better. Where I work, we speak French and we don't speak English, so we don't have anything in French. It's perfect in English, but we need something in French.Because its easy to create diagrams one needs to be vigilant on the housekeeping of orphaned fragments - I have written my own scripts to do this, maybe they are available now.I think the product is good. When I'm trying to do something specific for some part of project documentation, it's hard to get it figured out if you don't use it all the time. It's such a massive tool, it's hard to figure out how to dig in and get to the documentation where you have to be to get some idea of what to do. There are not a lot of examples that I'm aware of to be able to do that.The documentation needs a bit of improvement. What I find is that when I'm trying to do something specific for some part of a project, in terms of documentation, it's kind of hard to get at figuring out if you don't use it all the time.Not visually appealing.This solution should have better ease of use for the uninitiated.Using EA involves a steep learning curve if you want to understand its capabilities and functionality.I think that collaboration can be better.
