Using Sparx Enterprise Architect allowed my customer to detail and make the company's IT strategy visible and accessible to all. The system provided clear roadmaps for IT development and helped to keep up-to-date documentation of systems and processes.
The system provides powerful tools for obtaining reports and documentation.
It is a handy tool for visual modeling that provides opportunities for analysis, design, and support of models using ArchiMate, UML.

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

I would like the system to more "intellectually" build a scheme, place icons, and connect lines on the schemes.

George Mitchell
Data Architect at a government with 501-1,000 employees
Weak in regards to data modelling. No logical or physical modelling or migration from conceptual to physical.
Insufficient control of metadata and standards.
No way to implement data integrity and referential integrity constraints.

Sarah Jessop
Data Architect with 501-1,000 employees
It really did not work for logical modeling. The look is very old-fashioned. You can't make the diagrams easy on the eye, so we ended up drawing them again in Visio anyhow.
I struggled with most of the features for this tool, as did the rest of our architecture team.
The database management area was not usable.
