We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
"The powerful editing function in teamwork project-based, common or shared modeling, based on a powerful repository and knowledge sharing in a portal are the most valuable features. These are the most important features for me. I can add the integration of individual modeling notations like Archimate plus BPMN and DMN, and so on. We travel from one location to another and the tool allows us to keep track.""The initial setup of this solution was very straightforward.""The feature I find most valuable is that the start times and loading times are short. It takes only a few seconds to load the repository and whenever I want to open diagrams, they are there almost immediately.""t's a good tool. My colleagues that are making use of it for application, business processes, or data modeling, are very satisfied with it. They find it easy to use. The graphical representation is simple but therefore efficient, so I know that they are planning a very good commencement on the use of these tools.""The most valuable features are the application, portfolio, data, architectures, and modeling things."

"Sparx Systems Enterprise Architect supports multiple modeling languages like ArchiMate for database design, software lifecycle visualization, and team management.""Some of the business processes are very easy to compare when you have the diagrams.""I like that there is support for software patterns.""The most valuable features are the flexibility and adaptability of Sparx Enterprise Architect.""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.""Ability to keep inventory of reusable blocks, and use in different diagrams with views of various templates.""The initial setup is easy.""Scalability is not a problem. You can always increase the footprint of what the thing can do because it's so powerful."

Cons
"It should be more open to integrating with other existing tools. Although there has been progress in the past.""We tested it, and we had support from BiZZdesign, including patches, but it just didn't do what we wanted.""The repository of duplicate objects is bad.""It lacks capabilities with regard to infrastructure modeling.""The automatic data collection and interface need improvement."

"There used to be that feature in ArchiMate Modeling of Enterprise Architect called inherited relationships. Now it's gone.""I think that collaboration can be better.""It would be nice to have it supported on the Linux operating system.""Using EA involves a steep learning curve if you want to understand its capabilities and functionality.""This solution should have better ease of use for the uninitiated.""Not visually appealing.""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.""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."
