Sparx Systems Enterprise Architect Valuable Features

Endre Domiczi
Owner & CEO at mentorITe
I like that there is support for software patterns. The reverse engineering part is a feature that I like. Not so much the code generation, but the reverse engineering and also that it can be extended. You can extend Enterprise Architect by using JavaScript to extend the tools. I like the ability to make metamodels and some kind of domain-specific language. There is something called Agent-Oriented Modeling and a student for which I was a silent supervisor created an extension for this in his Master's thesis. He was able to extend the tools by scripting.

* 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 notations used in most of domains of the IT/IS.
