Enables us to identify business analysts that are working on two different things and link up efforts

What is our primary use case?

We are using it in a mixture, actually. We have got our business-as-usual business analysis activities and we are getting our business analyst to model the processes that they would normally draw up in their day-to-day activity. Instead of doing it in Visio, we are asking them to do it in Signavio to get the depth of the information that we actually need for the process plans. Things like attributes, the full details of the task descriptions, the full roles and all that is recorded and then filed centrally. What we are also doing is we are trying to expand our scope.

Pros and Cons

  • "The features I find most valuable are ease of use and the Collaboration Hub."
  • "Customized reporting can be improved to make this a more versatile tool."

What other advice do I have?

One of the important things for us when we were looking at solutions, was the ease of use. A lot of other solutions out there were just like Visio. The interface for Signavio is good. It is easy to use. It is self-explanatory. I can't really say much more about it in that way. The ease of use affected the adoption in our organization massively. If it had not been easy to use and people were struggling with it, then they just would not have used it. So I'd say it's quite a high factor in making a choice.

Offers good flexibility and is easy to use

What is our primary use case?

We use it for modeling and for making strategy.

Pros and Cons

  • "Sparx offers good flexibility."
  • "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."

What other advice do I have?

My advice would be to do a lot of training beforehand. We have invested a lot of money in terms of training because we didn't do it before, so it's a little bit difficult. In the next release, I would like to see more integration with other tools like Microsoft Azure. That's really important to us. I would rate it a nine out of ten.
