Visio Pros and Cons

Visio Pros

Vaibhav-Kumar
Assistant Manager in Strategic Consulting at Metlife
Visio has improved our organization through an essential collaboration with the other Microsoft applications like SharePoint and Excel. So basically in the earlier days, what used to happen, a majority of the organization captured all the as-is process, the time and motion data in the form of Excel and then they used to create process diagrams using other freeware applications. Collaboration allows easy and convenient sharing with other stakeholders, that is really helpful with Visio.

I enjoy the fact that I can go into detail with Visio. In shared communications, I can inspect for any fault in my processes.

Visio Cons

The one particular thing which I would like to see improved is in comparison to other products in the market, and is still lacking in Visio, is publishing on a web application. For example, there is a freeware application business process modeling tool, Bizagi.
I would like to see included in the next release is the implementation of web publishing.

The Auto-Align has improved significantly from the previous release; however, it still jumbles the model if your process diagram has a fair degree of complexity.

Transferring data was one of the issues that I expected Visio to have resolved. I use the older version.

I would like to see traceability. It doesn't have it. You cannot find one object amongst several sheets of Visio diagrams.

It could use easier custom icon sets.
It needs hyperlinked or narratives for page flows to make demos more effective.
