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… 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… 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.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

Pricing and licensing is very attractive, simple, and straightforward.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

MS Visio was used for tractability and maintenance, and many other concerns, were the reasons that we switched.

What other advice do I have?

Plan and organize your elements and models using the best practices from the beginning and create customized project templates. That will benefit you greatly afterwards.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We evaluated other options such as Rational Software Architect, Visual Paradigm, and Altova UModel.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

It has very competitive pricing/licensing. Spend the money you save on experienced support when setting up your model.

I’ve used many solutions over the years. I tend to come back to Sparx because it is the best value for the money.
