What is most valuable?

Automated document generation is a real time saver , no more cut and paste, no more keeping track of which diagrams are in which reports, no more last minute update panics. Just click a mouse and you've got an up to date report. Customized... more»

How has it helped my organization?

In one organization, it allowed teams and team members all over the world to collaborate and sync up on specific detailed parts of the solution or model easily with a minimum of fuss by sharing the repository instead of having to e-mail... more»

What needs improvement?

Sparx EA has always had one strong negative that has kept it from dominating the market ( not counting the fact that the big guns can out market Sparx). Its best features are not intuitive or easy to learn. Most companies I have worked with,... more»

What is most valuable?

* Open API, published database schema * Report generation: Makes the tool easy to configure and easy to extract analytics/reports * A large community with many examples and modeling standards supported, including UML, BPMN, and ArchiMate

How has it helped my organization?

I have used the BPMN modelling, reporting, and analytic capability with a number of clients to document their business processes. These have been used for staff training, change management, and regulatory reporting.

What needs improvement?

The tool lacks an interactive web interface. The HTML generated is static. Users can’t add comments, run reports, or query the generated HTML via a web browser. To do this with the out-of-the-box capability, users need to install the Sparx... more»

What is most valuable?

The RTF document generator and profiles. The RTF document generator allows me to focus more of my time on architecture and less on word processing. I can produce up-to-date reports anytime at the push of a button and that is a (huge!) time... more»

How has it helped my organization?

Various groups within the enterprise can now have access to a centralized and standardized repository.

What needs improvement?

Truth be told, like most products of its kind, it is not always an intuitively easy tool to use. In fairness, it is very hard to enable a non-expert user to do complex things in a totally easy intuitive way and I don’t know any tool that is... more»

What do you think of Sparx Systems Enterprise Architect?

Valuable Features We use it mainly for business process modelling, data modelling, and requirement specifications. • Improvements to My Organization We have three licenses being used by a team of project managers. We can work collectively instead of various people doing the same thing. And we can generate up-to-date documentation for our customers. • Room for Improvement We would like to see improvements in the documentation generator: templates, styles, and content. • Use of Solution I have used it for five years. • Deployment Issues I have not encountered any deployment issues at all. We know how to configure databases from other projects. I think this can be the most difficult thing for others. For me, it would be better if we could use the 64-bit version of...

What is most valuable?

* Great adaptability to modeling needs of all organization departments: Business, Architecture, Software Development, and Systems Support. * Kind of all-in-one solution (in a good meaning of it), through support for many standard modeling... more»

How has it helped my organization?

We adopted Sparx EA more than six years ago. Before that, all models were created in MS Visio and were maintained independently without any tractability. That led to insufficient incomplete impact analysis and incomplete solutions. With Sparx... more»

What needs improvement?

The elements of the modeling sets can have better customization and visual representation. It would be great to have a mobile version.
