Pros
The most valuable feature is the ability to quickly build multiple layers within the organizational and business process environments, as well as in the SysML product environments, and converting to files that can be accessed by clients who do not have a system and a teamwork server access.No Magic has the tools and capability to model a complete enterprise and all product lines.

I like to use Visio because it gives me a quick view of the things I had to put in a model for a company. I don't use it as an interface, though.The Data Objects are hyperlinked to the Standard Operating Procedures, Letters, and Forms.Visio has improved our organization through an essential collaboration with the other Microsoft applications like SharePoint and Excel. So basically in the earlier days, what used to happen, a majority of the organization captured all the as-is process, the time and motion data in the form of Excel and then they used to create process diagrams using other freeware applications. Collaboration allows easy and convenient sharing with other stakeholders, that is really helpful with Visio.I enjoy the fact that I can go into detail with Visio. In shared communications, I can inspect for any fault in my processes.It is easy to learn and implement.Putting details into the process flow and being able to link other objects into the diagrams are very helpful features.The most valuable feature is the ability to draw models quickly.The diagramming and swimlane features allow for separating business functions.

Cons
I would like to see the ability to deploy live business process models and capture real-time data (without the need for another product tool) so you don't have to be dependent on other products for this functionality.There are some technical features that you have to study and do research on to be able to understand.

Something that needs to improve, is the interface interaction with other tools.The Auto-Align has improved significantly from the previous release; however, it still jumbles the model if your process diagram has a fair degree of complexity.The one particular thing which I would like to see improved is in comparison to other products in the market, and is still lacking in Visio, is publishing on a web application. For example, there is a freeware application business process modeling tool, Bizagi.I would like to see included in the next release is the implementation of web publishing.Transferring data was one of the issues that I expected Visio to have resolved. I use the older version.It does not integrate well with other solutions.I would like to be able to present diagrams in multiple ways, such as a Swimlane diagram.I would like to see traceability. It doesn't have it. You cannot find one object amongst several sheets of Visio diagrams.
